Naturopathic Medicine for Cervical Cancer
Every cervical cancer patient who comes to Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) has the opportunity to see a naturopathic clinician to support their cancer treatment. Our naturopathic medicine team consults with the oncologists in your care team and are committed to advancing your overall health, so you can maintain the strength you need to fight cervical cancer.
Your Naturopathic Treatment Plan
During your first visit to CTCA, your naturopath will conduct a consultation with you. During this time, you’ll discuss your health history, as well as any side effects you are experiencing.
Your naturopath will also explain the goals of naturopathic medicine, which aim to:
- Support normal metabolism and digestion for optimal nutrition during cervical cancer treatment.
- Manage any side effects of cancer treatment, such as nausea or fatigue.
- Boost immune function.
- Support long-term health and wellness.
Easing Treatment Side Effects
The naturopathic clinicians at CTCA have comprehensive knowledge of all cancer-fighting therapies. Throughout your cervical cancer treatment, your naturopath will suggest remedies to help to minimize any foreseen side effects of upcoming therapies.
Common side effects of chemotherapy, surgery and other common cervical cancer treatments may include gastrointestinal problems, hot flashes and fatigue. Your naturopath will tailor a personalized naturopathic treatment plan for you with a goal of decreasing treatment-related side effects.
Care Under One Roof
Your naturopathic medicine team communicates regularly with your oncologists and the other members of your cervical cancer team. Our Patient Empowered Care® clinic brings your medical oncologist, clinic nurse, registered dietitian, naturopathic clinician and nurse care manager to you. With this approach, you enjoy greater comfort, convenience and privacy, by meeting with your cancer care team in one room.
Working together in close proximity allows for a fully integrated approach to treating cervical cancer. Your naturopath is able to share any specific nutrition challenges with other members of your care team, such as your gynecologic oncologist and dietitian, and work together to find solutions that meet your individual needs.
Throughout your cervical cancer treatment, your naturopath will also monitor your supplement and vitamin intake to ensure safety from potential drug-herb and drug-nutrient interactions. Once home, the naturopathic treatment team is available for 30-minute and one-hour phone consultations.
