Our Cancer Treatment Approach

Our step-by-step, integrative approach is designed to shrink and slow the growth of tumors, while also eliminating any cancer cells that may have spread to other parts of the body.

Supportive treatments dramatically strengthen the immune system, improve detoxification pathways, enhance cellular energy and communication, restore balance, and improve overall health.

1. Diagnostics & Testing

We use cutting-edge testing to deeply dive into understanding you at a cellular level, to address conditions, boost the immune system, and provide you with stacked therapies in a strategic and tailored fashion. Some of the most advanced and sensitive imaging in the world, along with comprehensive testing, inform us about how your body may respond to particular treatments and your unique cancer biomarkers and vulnerabilities.

From this, we create a custom cancer treatment protocol for your body.


  • Cancer Blood Biopsy
  • Whole Body Scan
  • Cancer DNA Detection Test
  • Cancer Enzyme Testing
  • Therapeutic Drug Response Test
  • Deep DNA Analysis / Genomic Testing
  • and more…

2. Advanced Cancer Treatments & Therapies

We create a customized cancer treatment protocol employing cutting-edge treatments to attack the cancer cells, disrupt their communication networks, block their food source, and inhibit their ability to spread. The goal is to shrink existing tumors, halt new tumor growth, and prevent the spread of new cancer cells.

We also greatly support the body to maximize results with the following steps.


3. Immune Boosting Therapies

The innate immune system is what protects your body from disease. A compromised immune system allows disease to take root. We use a variety of therapies to enhance, restore and dramatically improve immune function. An immune system in tip-top shape is one of the best defenses.

Next, we address the underlying contributing factors.


4. Eliminating Underlying Causes & Cofactors

What factors predisposed your body to develop cancer? The underlying factors that contributed to the development of cancer are addressed as part of your treatment program.

Such factors may include addressing environmental toxins, nutritional deficiencies, poor diet, gut health issues, chronic hidden infections, genetic weaknesses, mental & emotional issues, and lifestyle issues.

We also address any other long-standing illnesses you may have.


  • Infrared Sauna
  • IV Therapies
  • Detoxification
  • Nutrigenomics
  • Chelation Therapies
  • Metabolomics
  • Gut Biome
  • Hormone Deficiencies
  • Hidden Chronic Infections
  • BrainTap
  • EFT
  • Physical Medicine
  • and more…

5. Cancer Pain Management

Ultrasound-guided Nerve Hydrodissection

Patients who have received long courses of chemotherapy, surgical resections and/or radiation often experience serious injury to peripheral nerves or scarring causing numbness, tingling or impaired motor function/range of motion. By injecting regenerative solutions around damaged or inflamed nerves and opening myofascial planes we can improve swelling and reduce the long-term pain created by scar-tissue adhesions.

Targeted ultrasound-guided nerve hydro-dissections may provide safe and effective pain management strategies for mitigating the side effects of standard cancer treatments using chemo/radiation therapy as well as other post-surgery and traditional therapy side effects.

Can help with related:

  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Impaired motor function/range of motion
  • Lymph edema
  • Numbness
  • Weakness related to tumor surgery or radiation
  • Excess scar tissue adhesion pain
  • and more…

This comprehensive cancer care approach gives the body every resource to fight cancer and restore health without exposing the patient to toxic side effects.

Meet Our Founder

dr ahvie herskowitz anatara medicine

Dr. Ahvie Herskowitz is a former Clinical Professor of Medicine at UC San Francisco (UCSF) and is Founder of Anatara Medicine, a multidisciplinary integrative center in San Francisco.

His training includes a medical degree from The Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Chief Residency in Anatomic Pathology and Internal Medicine and followed with fellowship training in Cardiology at The Johns Hopkins Medical Center. During his 12 years at Johns Hopkins, he was co-appointed in the Departments of Medicine and Molecular Immunology and Microbiology. His clinical responsibilities were complemented by directing a multidisciplinary NIH-sponsored research team in the study of molecular immunological and genomic mechanisms of inflammation and cell injury, autoimmunity, transplantation, congestive heart failure, and myocarditis.

Cancer Treatment Testimonial

I was diagnosed Stage IV, endometrial adenocarcinoma (uterine cancer) with metastasis in early 2020. I had surgery shortly after and then pursued a course of low dose IPT chemo out of state through July of 2020. Two successive MRIs revealed lesions in my abdomen and liver that were growing. With progression of cancer, I turned to Anatara.

My first visit to Anatara was August 2020 under the care Dr. Lee, a Functional Medicine doctor. I began a mycotoxin analysis and mold detox program, attended practitioner-led EFT sessions and completed a Constitutional Diet Analysis. I started weekly IVs at various times over the course of the following year. Using the RGCC tests and Dr. Lee’s advice for guidance, I added many supplements and used their immunotherapies.

The results have been dramatic. In August 2021, my pet scan resulted in “no evidence of metastatic disease” which some call No Evidence of Disease. Very important lab test levels that Anatara was tracking continued to improve including my circulating tumor cell count (CTC). My Vitamin D level was boosted to 100. The level of mycotoxins in my body continued to drop. I feel absolutely fantastic and have exceeded the initial prognosis I was given. I consider Anatara to be my best kept secret.

I cannot say enough about the entire staff of professionals at Anatara. Dr. Herskowitz is brilliant at reading my pathology, imaging and obscure lab reports. I really count on his guidance in outsmarting cancer and building a course of action. Dr. Lee is amazing in her approach to whole body health and supporting the immune system. The nurses are absolutely phenomenal and give me great confidence. The management and front office crew and all their staff help me with everything I need to build and execute a solid plan.

I am still on my healing journey, approaching my two-year cancerversary in Jan 2022. I am grateful for every day and grateful to the team that has supported me.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you take insurance, medicare, etc?

We, unfortunately, do not take insurance. Our proprietary treatments, therapies, and diagnostics are exclusive, offered by only a few practitioners in the US. As such, insurance companies do not cover these yet.

Do you offer telehealth services?

Yes, we offer Telehealth services to many locations.

Can you refer me to someone in my state?
Possibly. However, it is recommended you make every effort to come to Anatara Medicine. We have a unique approach and deep experience treating advanced health issues. If this is just impossible, we may be able to recommend a small number of select clinics in the US that might offer similar services.
Do I have to come to your office in San Franscisco?

Making a trip to our lovely city of San Francisco does not need to happen right away. Based on your initial consultation, what testing has come in, our doctors will tailor recommendations for you, and we will do our best to work around your schedule.

What to expect on your first visit.

We begin with an in-person or Telemedicine consultation with one or two of our doctors. The doctor(s) will typically recommend conventional and state-of-the-art, leading-edge tests based on the consultation. Some of these tests will likely require a blood draw. Once the test results are back, we will schedule an appointment for the doctor to review your results with you in detail.

The doctor may recommend you begin specific therapies during your initial visit before your labs have come back in certain circumstances. The doctor will discuss any such recommendations with you in detail.

Where will I receive my treatments?

Because Anatara is a leading and cutting-edge treatment center, most therapies will be received at our center in San Francisco, however, where possible, we will work with partnered centers across the country to accommodate your schedule.

How long does treatment take?

Therapies are tailored for you by the doctor and Anatara team based on many variables. We offer individual targeted therapies and some treatment packages, and we will be happy to review those in detail with you once they are recommended. Many of our treatment plans include IV (intravenous) therapies, a very efficient way of administering medications and nutrients into your bloodstream to get to the tissues and cells. Some IVs only take ~ 1.5 hours, while others can take 3.0-4.0 hours, based on the tailored treatments the doctor has recommended

What is your appointment cancellation policy?
Due to demand for office visits, please get in touch with us 48-hours before your scheduled appointment to cancel your appointment. Otherwise, you will be charged for your office visit.
