Naturopathic Medicine for Esophageal Cancer
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) naturopathic medicine is an integral part of your overall esophageal cancer treatment. You will have a dedicated naturopathic oncology provider who works alongside your medical oncologist and the rest of your care team to provide whole-person care.
In naturopathic medicine, a variety of natural therapies are used to manage side effects and to improve your well-being, both during and after treatment. These may include herbal remedies, homeopathic remedies and even dietary changes.
Naturopathic medicine can help quicken healing times, and in some cases shorten your hospital stay and lower your risk of infection if you undergo surgery. Your naturopath also addresses lifestyle management, which includes tips on sleep, exercise and stress reduction.
Naturopathic medicine can help with many common side effects of esophageal cancer treatment, such as:
- Difficulty swallowing
In addition to providing you with the natural support you need, your naturopath will also keep track of your medications to help prevent complications.
