Naturopathic Medicine for Melanoma Cancer
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), we use the healing benefits of a variety of complementary medicines, including naturopathic medicine, as part of our integrative approach to melanoma cancer treatment.
During your treatment, your oncologists will consult with naturopathic clinicians to help you maintain your physical well-being, reduce the side effects of cancer treatment and strengthen your immune system. Through the use of naturopathic medicine, our clinicians use gentle, natural therapies to support you and encourage the self-healing process as you go through treatment. Their goal is to help to build your overall health.
Your Personalized Naturopathic Program
When you arrive at CTCA, you will meet with a naturopathic clinician who will become part of your personal care team. Your naturopath will discuss your health history and current symptoms. In addition, they will explain the goals of naturopathic medicine, which include using natural, non-toxic therapies to:
- Support normal metabolism and digestion.
- Manage any side effects of cancer treatment.
- Boost immune function.
- Support long-term health and wellness.
Your naturopathic clinician may make recommendations drawing from a range of therapies, including:
- Herbal and botanical preparations
- Natural therapies
- Homeopathic remedies
- Physical therapy and exercise therapy
- Lifestyle counseling
Throughout your treatment for melanoma cancer, your naturopath will work with your team of doctors to ensure that any natural remedies you receive support and complement your more conventional treatments, and to avoid any negative interactions between drugs and supplements.
