Help for Vaccination Side-Effects, Breast Thermography News

What do you think of when you hear “Spring cleaning”?

I think of dust bunnies and stacks of paper, trips to Goodwill, expired food, oven cleanings, and an endless to-do list of chores.

But spring cleaning also means cleansing our inner world, and in an upcoming series of revealing articles we’ll address the ways and means for accomplishing those changes.


As we recently mentioned, Pacific Naturopathic has become a family business. While Dr. Marcel and Dr. Connie continue as docs, our son Gabe now manages the front desk and runs the show, and Gabe’s wife Marina is our thermography tech. Dr. Marcel’s sister Jane is our mind/body specialist, and our baby grandson Quinn is Minister of Joy.


While we aren’t actively promoting Covid vaccination, we realize that our patients may choose to protect themselves by being vaccinated. We just want to let you know that we have homeopathic protocols to help prevent adverse vaccine reactions, and to address reactions when they occur. (Consult with Dr. Connie for more information: (650) 961-1660.)

Marina Hernandez


Breast thermography at Pacific Naturopathic is up and running again, with updated equipment and a new technician trained by Dr. Robert Kane. The front desk is working to schedule the backlog of patients who’ve contacted us for thermographic appointments during this brief hiatus.  

Our new technician is Marina Day Hernandez, wife of our front-desk and practice manager Gabe Hernandez, and mother of our grandson Quinn.

Marina reminds us that thermography isn’t just for breasts. When baby Quinn was being uncharacteristically fussy, a thermographic image of his face revealed the inflammation characteristic of tiny teeth irritating gums. You may remember that Dr. Marcel also had a tooth problem diagnosed by thermography, before the problem could manifest as dental pain.

More to follow on other medical uses of thermographic imaging – stay tuned!

We offer Thermography most Wednesdays. Read more HERE. To schedule an appointment, call us at (650) 961-1660.
