About Brandon LaGreca

Author, Speaker & 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.

During her intake, I inquired if she was ready to adopt an anti-cancer lifestyle following this shake-up. It didn’t take long to recognize that she didn’t have a clear sense of what that involved, save for not using chemical herbicides anymore.

The 4th Phase of Water

The 4th Phase of Water

Solid, liquid, and gas—these are the three states of matter presented in the home-schooling science curriculum I was preparing to review with our 7-year-old daughter. The best example to learn these states is water in its different forms: moisture vapor in a cloud, liquid rain, and solid ice. I couldn’t stop there though, not when the intersection of biology and physics tells of a truly amazing fourth state of water that may be the key to life in the animal kingdom.

Universal Healthcare Is Not Socialism

Universal Healthcare Is Not Socialism

In an election year, paying for healthcare is one of the most discussed issues, with much of the rhetoric from politicians being polarized. On one side, any mention of universal healthcare is sloshed in the bucket of un-American socialism. On the other side, a single-payer option is championed as the only humane way forward.

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 wellbeing of your family.
