Choosing Integrative Cancer Care 

In today's information-rich society, many seek out their own health answers rather than relying solely on traditional medical advice. The internet offers a vast array of medical resources, and while it's empowering to research, it can also be difficult to navigate.

Partnering with a naturopathic doctor trained in integrative cancer care offers a deeper understanding of your diagnosis and treatment options. It bridges the gap between self-investigation and professional guidance, ensuring you're well-informed and confident in your health choices, including complementary therapies tailored for you.

How Naturopathic Care Enhances and Integrates with Traditional Cancer Treatments

While current research doesn't recommend natural treatments as a replacement for conventional methods (typically surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation), there's strong evidence supporting their combination with naturopathic care. Working alongside the oncology team, a naturopathic doctor can enhance your treatment journey. This partnership can mitigate the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, manage potential treatment delays, and uplift your overall well-being during the process. Once conventional treatments conclude, integrative care can also address lingering effects, such as brain fog, fatigue, and pain, while also aiming to reduce the risk of recurrence.
