Dr. Alison Anstaett

Class of 2013


CUKC solidified my views on whole body health care, and offered ICPA classes on campus to further my passion in preventative pediatric care. It helped shape who I am as a person, and how I care for my patients. Being a five-year cancer survivor myself has opened a completely new door of care for other cancer fighters, survivors, thrivers, and their loved ones. Being able to talk the talk, and walk the walk with them has not only been physically helpful, but has also helped with the emotional side of cancer.

I have impacted the lives of others by helping little babies breast feed with cranial adjustments, influencing their nervous system so they can be at ease, and rest/digest. It’s very humbling and special to witness. Coming from a place of compassion and understanding while working with cancer patients and working on the emotional side of the VSC.

I can continue to make a difference by continuing to expand my knowledge of care for pediatrics, pregnancy and cancer patients while constantly thinking outside the box about ways to help. I’ve used pregnancy pillows and turned them the other direction to help those that have undergone bilateral mastectomies. This way they can be prone comfortably during an adjustment. I can also continue to volunteer in the community.
