Dr. Holly Lucille
ND, RN, ONC
With over 20 years of experience in clinical naturopathic practice, Dr. Holly Lucille, ND, RN, ONC, is a peerless expert ready to help you achieve your best health even in the context of a cancer diagnosis.
As the daughter of two pharmacists, Dr. Lucille was well-versed in the Western medical approach: “You don’t feel well? Here, take this pill. Never mind the side effects!” As a medical student, Dr. Lucille was troubled by this way of thinking - and always wanted to know “the WHY of things” to make healthcare make sense. Her dogged pursuit of all “the whys” eventually led her to naturopathic medicine.
As a graduate of the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ, Dr. Lucille was honored to receive the prestigious Daphne Blayden Award for her “commitment to naturopathic medicine, academic excellence, compassion, perseverance, a loving sense of humor and a positive, supportive outlook.”
Many years later, after receiving her own breast cancer diagnosis, Dr. Lucille was underwhelmed by the generic standard of care - and thought to herself, “I need help”! So she devoted the next year of her life to learning everything there is to know about the integrative approaches to oncology - completing Dr. Nasha Winter’s course in the “Metabolic Approach to Cancer,” a 250-hour Oncology Nutrition Certificate course through the Oncology Nutrition Institute and graduated from the Practitioner Masters Course through the Metabolic Terrain Institute for Health to specifically help support the oncology population.
Today, Dr. Lucille is a nationally recognized and licensed naturopathic doctor, educator, television and radio host, and natural products consultant, as well as the author of several books, including Creating and Maintaining Balance: A Women’s Guide to Safe, Natural, Hormone Health and The Healing Power of Trauma Comfrey.
An acclaimed expert in the field of integrative medicine, she has lectured internationally on a variety of natural health topics. She has appeared on national media programs and networks such as ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, Dr. Oz, The Doctors, Lifetime, and the Discovery Health Channel.
Dr. Lucille is currently on the editorial advisory board of Alternative Medicine, Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, Advances in Mind/Body Medicine, and Natural Practitioner – and is regularly cited as an expert in both consumer and peer journals. In 2007, Dr. Lucille was listed in Time magazine’s Alt List as one of the “Top 100 Most Influential People.” In 2012, she launched her own talk show, Myth-Defying with Dr. Holly, on the Z Living network and is currently the host of the Mindful Medicine podcast.
Dr. Lucille also holds a variety of positions on various medical boards – and now serves as Senior Medical Advisor to Fullscript - and Secretary of the Institute for Natural Medicine – and, until 2021, functioned as President of the California Naturopathic Doctors Association who spearheaded the lobbying effort to have naturopathic doctors licensed in the state of California to ensure safe naturopathic health care to those in need. She was awarded the “SCNM Legacy Award” for her “contribution to the advancement and development of the field of naturopathic medicine.”
Together, WE CAN DO MORE.
