Supporting Your Treatment Plan

Naturopathic Medical Doctors (NMDs) trained in integrative cancer care do not offer alternative treatments to the conventional ones recommended by the American Cancer Society. 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 the 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. It is not designed to be an alternative to conventional treatment plans. 

Rather, your naturopathic oncologist would work with your medical team. By utilizing a shared-access approach to your full medical history and treatment plan, your doctors can prescribe the best combination of complementary therapies. Ultimately, this gives you the highest possible standard of safety and patient-centered care.

What are alternative cancer treatments?

The treatments and therapies offered by an NMD are not alternatives to traditional cancer treatments, such as radiation therapy. Rather, these therapies are offered as a support to conventional cancer treatment. 

Each therapy recommendation is personalized to the individual patient so it can be administered safely and effectively. It’s based on the current course of treatment recommended and being administered by your Medical Oncologist, Surgeon, and Radiation Oncologist.

Naturopathic Cancer Support FAQ

If you have any questions, please contact our office.

Do alternative cancer treatments work for breast cancer?

Yes. Naturopathic cancer treatment support can be an effective tool for your fight against breast cancer. It can promote healing, reduce stress, and improve your overall quality of life.

Do alternative cancer treatments work for prostate cancer?

Just like fighting breast cancer, naturopathic cancer treatments can provide effective support for your fight against prostate cancer. The medicines used to fight cancer can wreak havoc on your body. From weight loss and diminished sex drive to trouble sleeping and stress, your NMD can help you mitigate these symptoms and live the life you want.

Will alternative cancer treatments keep me from losing my hair?

Naturopathic cancer treatment support is not a guarantee against symptoms related to cancer treatments. Radiation and chemotherapy can be lifesaving. They also come with some side effects that can be unavoidable. The therapies recommended by your NMD can help lessen these symptoms, speed your recovery, and reduce the chance of recurrence.
