Oscar Sierra is the founder and head practitioner of Sierra Botanica & Collaborative Medicine (SBCM), a full-service compounding apothecary and clinic based in Atlanta. SBCM specializes in working with patients with chronic diseases, such as cancer, by combining ancient botanical medicine with modern functional medicine analytics.
Oscar earned a bachelor’s degree in nutrition science & minored in anthropology with a focus on Traditional Medicine at the University of Georgia. After 3,000+ hours of hands-on apprenticeship training and national board exams, Oscar earned his Herbal Medicine & Acupuncture National Board Certifications (2009) and became a Registered Herbalist with the American Herbalists Guild (2021).
In addition to the valuable seminar, conference, and workshop continuing education in ancient Traditional Medicines with plant, animal, and fungal-based pharmacopoeias, Oscar also continued studies in the more biomedical and systems engineering fields of Functional Medicine and wholistic oncology. Since 2012, he has been a regular speaker at regional and national symposia on dentistry, functional medicine, and traditional medicine where he presents on incorporating plant- and fungal-based therapies into clinical practice.
The amalgamative zenith of these areas of study is called the Eclectic Triphasic Medical System (ETMS), an approach created by master herbalist Donnie Yance, one of Oscar’s mentors. In the ETMS, ancient wisdom of Traditional Medicine (Chinese, Ayurvedic, American Eclectic, Southern Folk) informs modern functional analytics to produce patient-centered care.
