Naturopathic Oncology is a cutting-edge field of cancer medicine that supplements conventional therapies like surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy with non-invasive approaches. Naturopathic Oncology employs objective data via modern specialized lab testing to evaluate cancer metabolism and tumor characteristics that are specific to the patient, and uses that information to guide integrative treatment decisions in step with the conventional oncology treatment.
What is naturopathic oncology?
Naturopathic oncology is a subspecialty of naturopathic medicine that employs a whole-person, immune and metabolism focused approach to cancer care. The extensive training in cancer treatment covering both conventional and integrative oncology allows naturopathic oncologists to provide additional layers of care to address the whole person.
Modern and traditional approaches to treatment of all types of cancer are both incorporated into naturopathic oncology. Moreover, naturopathic oncology focusses on supporting the conventional treatment plan with evidence-based Botanical Medicine, Dietary, Nutraceutical, Homeopathic, IV, Laser, Acupuncture, and Exercise/movement recommendations to maintain quality of life, augment conventional care and minimize side effects.
What are the benefits of naturopathic oncology?
Undergoing cancer treatment can be a rigorous and draining experience, with adverse effects on one’s body and mind. Traditional treatments, while sometimes successful, can occasionally result in chronic problems or a decline in quality of life. These issues are addressed by naturopathic oncology, which takes a more integrative and individualized approach to cancer treatment.
Naturopathic care can help reduce cancer treatment side effects, such as
- Digestive issues.
- Mucositis and mouth sores.
- Nausea and vomiting.
- Peripheral neuropathy.
- Radiation burns.
- Weight loss.
– Supporting the immune system
Naturopathic oncology can aid in the body’s resistance to cancer and recovery from therapy by boosting the immune system.
– Improving the quality of life
The goal of naturopathic oncology is to enhance the well-being of cancer patients by enhancing their physical, mental, and emotional health before, during, and after therapy.
– Individual attention
To provide a personalized and patient-focused approach to cancer therapy, naturopathic oncologists develop individualized treatment programs that take into account each patient’s distinct needs, desires, and circumstances.
