“After lung cancer surgery three years ago, I chose to take the holistic approach (rather than chemo) to clear out any stray cancer cells. Dr. Viencek’s extensive knowledge of cancer and supplements played a major role in that process, which resulted in no cancer cells since the surgery.”
She is also a lifelong advocate of things food. She strongly believes in food as a foundation for health and has been involved with growing, cooking and teaching about food and its relationship to health. She has been involved in biodynamic and organic farming, five elemental food planning, macrobiotics, traditional cooking methods, and mindful eating as a way to create a more sustainable planet. As an exchange student to England she studied at the East-West Center of North London, where she leaned cooking techniques and specific diets for people with chronic illness. The healing power of the body and its innate biological transformational power has intrigued and motivated her to share this information with her clients.
“Two years ago, I found my bone density has decreased to the point I was a bordering on osteoporosis. I received three medical opinions: (1) Fosomax, (2) supplement with a good diet, (3) Dr. Viencek was the only one to suggest we do further testing, which resulted in finding out the calcium was not going into the bones and suggesting the proper supplements to correct the situation.”
Dr. Viencek has a heartfelt connection to children’s health especially the GUT= BRAIN CONNECTION! After having a baby that almost died from un-diagnosised E-coli infection and then went on to develop food sensitivities, leaky gut and attention issues, she became keenly aware of the complexities in treating our children and balancing allopathic and integrative care. She is a strong advocate for teaching healthy eating habits in children and for developing their awareness to food and its impact on their vitality.
