Dr. Thomas Lodi
Dr. Thomas Lodi has always been something of a brilliant enigma within the oncology community. His take on integrative, alternative and nutritional solutions to treating cancer has been viewed as radical.
The rather direct stance he takes regarding empowering his patients to understand their body’s ability to heal leaves some if not many, estranged. Despite all of this, his treatments have revolutionized the integrative side of the oncology industry worldwide and led many patients with cancer to the root of real healing and health restoration.
Twelve years ago, Dr. Lodi founded his practice at An Oasis of Healing in Mesa, Arizona. At the time, few if any other centers provided a true mix of conventional and alternative medicine to help patients actually heal from their cancer. Add to the mix an organic whole foods diet, whole body cleansing, and spiritual healing, Dr. Thomas Lodi pioneered what has now become the definitive route for those unsatisfied with the modern cancer treatment system.
Thomas Lodi has been practicing medicine for 30+ years. Prior to attending medical school, Dr. Lodi practiced as a clinical psychologist during which time he was director of psychological services for a 240-bed in-patient facility in Hawaii.
After graduating from the University of Hawaii, School of Medicine in 1985 Dr. Lodi served as a visiting Clinical Fellow at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City where he also underwent training in Internal Medicine. From 1991 to 1996, Dr. Lodi was appointed as Clinical Instructor of Medicine at the University of Hawaii, School of Medicine.
For the first ten years of his medical career, Dr. Thomas Lodi worked in conventional settings as an internal medicine specialist, urgent care physician, and as an intensivist in ICU and CCU departments of various hospitals. Subsequently, Dr. Lodi continued his search for more effective and less toxic therapies by training around the world from Japan to Europe to Mexico and all around the US.
Although he occasionally sees patients with a variety of medical conditions, Dr. Lodi, has narrowed his scope of practice through specific training and extensive experience over the past 12 years to Integrative Oncology (caring for people with cancer).
For the benefit of his patients and in order to remain current in all areas of oncology, Dr. Thomas Lodi maintains memberships in both conventional and alternative medical professional associations.
He is licensed as a Homeopathic Medical Doctor MD(H) in the State of Arizona and is licensed as an Allopathic Medical Doctor (MD) in the state of New York.
Dr Lodi has completed a Fellowship in Integrative Cancer Therapies and a Fellowship in Anti-Aging, Regenerative & Functional Medicine. Dr. Lodi sits on the Scientific Advisory Board for Immunogenic Research Foundation (IMREF), the Medical Advisory Board for Elka Best Foundation, and is an active-allied member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).
Dr. Lodi is also an instructor in Insulin Potentiation Therapy and certified in oxidative and chelation therapies.
