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.

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.

As I consult with a cancer patient, I quickly try to bring a vision of the future to the surface, a point of focus at which all effort will be aligned. Once that vision is in place, the emphasis shifts to the choices and decisions that bring that vision to fruition. Resilience in the face of cancer lives and dies by the consistency of thoughts that drive action and reinforce change. The collective power of those thoughts, amidst all adversity, is the anticancer mindset.
