Clinical Mentoring
with Chanchal Cabrera

Clinical mentoring sessions offer herbalists and practitioners of natural medicine the opportunity to receive one-on-one guidance from Chanchal on their challenging clinical cases, including but not limited to holistic oncology. Cancer care is an area where many practitioners feel intimidated and often end up referring out. Drawing from her 20 years of experience in this field, Chanchal can equip you with the tools and insights you need to feel confident providing holistic care to your oncology patients.
