When Dr. Holly was first diagnosed with breast cancer, she was pretty underwhelmed with her care. Cancer is a complex disease, and she thought there was more she could do to help her body than just take pills. It was then she remembered the work fof today's guest (who has been on the podcast before!) and called her up.
