When combined with conventional cancer treatments, integrative cancer care can help patients improve their quality of life.
Naturopathic Medical Doctors (NMDs) trained in integrative cancer care do not offer an alternative to conventional cancer treatment. Rather, NMDs serve as part of your experienced medical team. Working closely with your Medical Oncologist, Surgeon, and Radiation Oncologist, your NMD can help you in a variety of ways, including:
- Speeding Your Recovery
- Preventing Recurrence
- Managing Side Effects
- Improving quality of life
Integrative Cancer Treatment Offers a Holistic Alternative
To provide the best care possible, integrative oncology uses a shared approach to your medical records, so all your providers have access to your full medical history and treatment plan. This provides a high standard of safety and optimal patient-centered care.
Natural Therapies Offer Immune System Support
From diagnosis and treatment to recovery and prevention, your integrative oncologist can support you through every step of the process. By combining your conventional cancer treatment with natural and supportive therapies, you can support your immune system through non-invasive means. These therapeutic techniques include, but are not limited to:
- Botanical Medicine
- Physical Medicine
- Clinical Nutrition
- Lifestyle Counseling
- Drip IV
- B12 Injections
Evidence-Informed Guidance to Naturopathic Cancer Support
As with all naturopathic medicine, NMDs specializing in oncology take a holistic approach to your health and wellbeing. Providing evidence-informed guidance, NMDs can help you make strategic changes to your lifestyle and diet to improve the effectiveness of your treatment and reduce the symptoms.
