Dr. Umeda is an Integrative Medicine specialist with an interest in cancer, Oriental Medicine and root cause assessment. He is originally from Japan, where the average life expectancy is the longest in the world. He has more than six years of experience providing Integrative Medicine for cancer patients (Integrative Oncology). After receiving his medical degree from a national medical school in Tokyo, Japan, Dr. Umeda trained as an Internal Medicine resident and Gastroenterology fellow in Tokyo. He then completed an advanced fellowship of Hepatology (liver disease) and a fellowship of Gastroenterology Oncology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. In October of 2019, he successfully completed a fellowship in Integrative Health & Medicine from The Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine (AIHM).
Based on his experience of treating patients in "clinically tough situations" such as liver transplant recipients and cancer patients in advanced stage, Dr. Umeda became more interested in "whole person" and "Body - Mind - Spirit" care. He worked as an Integrative Medicine staff physician, and he combined Western Medicine with Eastern/Traditional Medicine such as Chinese herbal therapy and Ayurveda. He realized this blend would produce a beautiful and great "synergy effect" to relieve both physical and spiritual pain, and to improve quality of life of cancer patients.
Dr. Umeda is board-certified in Internal Medicine, Gasteroenterology and Hepatology, and Integrative Medicine in Japan. His strong points include his wide experience of Integrative Oncology for all types of cancer; his knowledge of Japanese healthy food culture, such as fermented foods, tofu, or green tea; and his understanding of both the advantage and disadvantage of Western and Eastern Medicine. His aim is to maximize patients’ “self-healing power” and “self-adjustment function”, and he respects each individual’s belief and uniqueness. Dr. Umeda will tailor the personalized treatment plan not only for cancer patients but also for chronic disease patients including fatigue syndrome, migraine, gastrointestinal disorders, allergy disorders, and mood disorders.
Dr. Umeda provides one-hour Integrative Medicine consultations to create personalized treatment plans for patients at the Cleveland Clinic Lyndhurst Campus.
