When diagnosed with cancer in 2014, Dr. Rothenberg sought and received state-of-the-art care at a renowned teaching hospital and had her own naturopathic medical team to help her best handle treatment, and rebound afterward. Her book, You Finished Treatment, Now What? A Field Guide for Cancer Survivors is a roadmap for lifestyle and natural medicine approaches to address health challenges that persist after cancer care, and to reduce the risk of recurrence.
Her first book, The A Cappella Singer Who Lost Her Voice & Other Stories from Natural Medicine highlights patient experiences as a way to share information and inspiration about her beloved profession of naturopathic medicine.
Her writing is evidence-informed, while also bringing her personal experience as a doctor, patient, mother, and wife. Offering a natural, integrative medicine perspective on items in the news, Dr. Rothenberg’s writing can be found on the Huff Po, Medium, Thrive Global, Elephant Journal and more. Dr. Rothenberg is an invited speaker to events, podcasts, and interviews for medical providers, the general public, and industry on the value of whole person, natural and integrative medicine and for her lively and engaging presentation style.
