Paul Anderson, NMD

Speaker, 48th Annual International Orthomolecular Medicine Today Conference

Advanced Medical Therapies
101 – 10303 Meridian Ave N
Seattle, WA 98133


Dr. Anderson is a recognized authority in the field of integrative cancer research and the treatment of chronic diseases, genomic conditions, and auto-immune and infectious disorders. As a naturopath, Dr. Anderson began his career as a family practitioner in Canby and Salem, Oregon. For many years he has trained students and clinicians at a number of naturopathic medical schools and other higher education institutions, with a specialization in intravenous (IV) therapy formulation and infusion techniques as well as clinical approaches to complicated illness.

Most recently Dr. Anderson spent seven years at Bastyr University in Seattle on the faculties of both its School of Naturopathic Medicine and the Bastyr University Research Institute. He was the Chief of Intravenous Services at the Bastyr Integrative Oncology Research Center (BIORC) from 2009-2013, where he remains an adjunct research professor involved in prospective NIH and other grants. As an instructor he continues to provide popular annual board review courses for the leading US and Canadian naturopathic medical schools. After years of private practice in Oregon, Arizona and then during his tenure at Bastyr University, Dr. Anderson established AMSA in 2010, to focus on more intensive patient care and medical research.

As a physician-scientist, Dr. Anderson is interested in immunologic, genomic, and metabolic repair; fields that are considered to be at the leading edge of medical inquiry for many disease processes. His longtime work on the development and standardization of pharmacologically significant micronutrient IV therapies bridges naturopathic to conventional medicine, merging the benefits of both, from diagnosis to treatment, with an expert understanding of the underlying biochemical and genetic causes that contribute to illness. Dr. Anderson has collaborated with many notable physicians, researchers and professors in his career and continues to do so in his current work.

Dr. Anderson’s combined experience in teaching, clinical practice, and research equally informs AMSA’s approach to health care: treating the whole person and not just the disease, with evidence-based integrative medicine that is tailored to each patient’s unique constitution, history, and present needs.

Presentation Abstract

Orthomolecular Oncology: Assessment and Monitoring of Cancer Patients

In this presentation Dr. Anderson will address the “top down” level of testing, monitoring and assessment in the patient who has cancer.

  • What do we need to be concerned with as to patient safety?
  • What specific tests can we run to give us the best monitoring data?
  • What stages are more or less dangerous in cancer therapy?
  • What guidelines exist for patients in distress and those needing comfort care?

Dr. Anderson will also provide the keynote presentation for the Public Workshop on Sunday, June 2, based on his recently published book Outside the Box Cancer Therapies (Hay House, 2018). He will be joined by leading Canadian naturopathic oncologists for an interactive discussion on non-conventional cancer therapies and patient health.
