About Brandon LaGreca

Author, Speaker, and Holistic Medical Practitioner

My Story

Brandon LaGreca, LAc, MAcOM, is a 2005 graduate of the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Wisconsin, and nationally certified in the practice of Oriental medicine.

Having been exposed to acupuncture at a young age, Brandon began his formal study of traditional Chinese medicine through the practice of qi gong at age 13. After the completion of his master’s degree in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, he continued his education with postgraduate clinical work in Nanjing, China.

In 2015, Brandon was diagnosed with stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He achieved full remission eight months later by following an integrative medicine protocol that included immunotherapy without the use of chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery.

Brandon created his Empowered Patient Blog to share his experience growing stronger through and beyond cancer. He now lectures and writes extensively on holistic cancer therapies and is a columnist for Acupuncture Today.

As the founder and director of East Troy Acupuncture, an integrative medical clinic serving southeast Wisconsin, Brandon specializes in whole food nutrition, ancestral health, and environmental medicine.

Perhaps EMF exposure is a drop in the bucket in a world swimming in a chemical sea of carcinogens, but I predict time will expose EMFs to be as significant a carcinogenic factor as smoking. With vested interests poised in a lockstep march into an increasingly technological world, it is up to you, the individual, to exercise caution and safeguard the health and well-being of your family.
