Dr. LaValley is one of the world’s most advanced clinical researchers and medical doctor practitioners in the field of integrative cancer treatment.
Dr. LaValley utilizes the vast knowledge that exists – via the PubMed portal – to unlock the anti-cancer benefits of natural product supplements and re-purposed (off–label) pharmaceutical drugs to create personalized treatments for patients with cancer.
He has worked since 1986 as an MD, and over the last 10 years has developed extensive, state-of-the-art, relational, evidence-based databases about the molecular biology of cancer.
These databases have helped him build research methodologies for cancer treatments that are designed to be administered in addition to – not instead of – conventional chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
He is now opening this extensive and rigorous knowledge to a broader audience and patient base.
At the age of 58, Dr. LaValley is writing a book explaining the science and benefits of “the other half of cancer treatment” – to be published in 2017.
As well as continuing his research he works as a consultant to a select group of integrative medical physicians and their patients.
