About Brandon LaGreca

Author, Speaker, and Holistic Medical Practitioner

My Story

Brandon LaGreca, LAc, MAcOM, grew up on the East Coast of the U.S. and attended Montclair State University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in science with a minor in religion, summa cum laude. He then moved to the West Coast to fulfill a dream he had from the age of 12 of studying traditional Chinese medicine. He was accepted to the prestigious Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, where he earned a master’s degree in acupuncture and Oriental medicine. His postgraduate work included studying and working at Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine in China.

After 10 years of private practice, Brandon experienced firsthand the journey of the wounded healer when a series of small bowel obstructions led to hospitalization and diagnosis of stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He achieved remission eight months later following an integrative oncology protocol that included immunotherapy without surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy. He now lectures and writes on the epigenetics of cancer and has dedicated his career to empowering patients through and beyond chronic illnesses such as cancer. His latest interests include studying indigenous forms of healing and eco-spirituality.

Scents of Danger: Unveiling the Hidden Health Risks of Air Fresheners

Imagine opening the door to a home filled with the inviting scent of lavender or vanilla, only to realize that this pleasant aroma might mask a hidden danger. Our go-to spray and plug-in products, those little guardians of freshness, could be silently polluting our indoor sanctuary with an array of chemicals like volatile organic compounds (VOCs), phthalates, and synthetic fragrances.

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.
