Dr. Analila Valencia is a Naturopathic doctor who specializes in Integrative Oncology, Regenerative therapy, and metabolic disease. She received her Bachelor’s degree with high honors in Cell & Molecular Biology from California State University, Northridge. She received her Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine and Doctorate in Naturopathic medicine from National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR. She completed her residency at Cancer Treatment Center of America in Tulsa, OK, and Revolutions Naturopathic in Folsom, CA.
After graduating from high school, Analila joined the U.S. Navy and trained as a Hospital Corpsman. While in the military she was certified as an Emergency Medical Technician and became a specialist as a Physical Therapy Assistant. Her medical experience, love for food, nature, and exercise led her to holistic medicine. During graduate school, she took part in the Food As Medicine Everday community-based nutrition and cooking program that educated participants about macronutrients, reading labels, grocery shopping, diabetes, hypertension, and included hands-on cooking demonstrations.
While working with oncology patients, Analila looked for cutting-edge research that could help reduce side effects from conventional therapies and improve their quality of life. She discovered articles about how fasting can have synergistic benefits for cancer patients undergoing conventional therapies. At the same time, she learned about the work at True North Health Center and started an internship program focusing on medically supervised, water-only fasting.
Analila’s practice focuses on gentle but effective acupuncture therapies to help people improve their health. She uses non-needle acupuncture techniques, auriculotherapy, and aromatherapy. She has extensive training for regenerative injection therapies that can help with repetitive injuries. She also uses sauna, hydrotherapy, and botanical herbs to help patients restore their health.
In her spare time, Analila enjoys collecting succulents and cactus. You will often find her hiking, camping, or kayaking, and tending to her garden in spring and summer.
