Naturopathic Treatments Along with Your Conventional Cancer Treatment
Every day, our patients experience Patient Empowered Care®, integrated cancer treatment provided by a dedicated team of cancer experts, all of whom have the best interest of each patient in mind.
As a patient at our hospital, your care team will include a medical oncologist and naturopathic oncology provider, in addition to other clinicians. Your naturopathic oncology provider has a comprehensive knowledge of cancer-fighting drugs and naturopathic treatments. He or she will consult with your medical oncologist, and work closely with you to develop a treatment plan that’s unique to you and your needs. The naturopathic treatments your naturopathic oncology provider will recommend are appropriate to pair with your conventional treatment and designed to improve your quality of life.
Some of the cancer treatment side effects your naturopathic oncology provider can help prevent or minimize include:
- Mouth sores
- Diarrhea, constipation
- Neuropathy (numbness and tingling)
- Muscle weakness
- Difficulty sleeping or insomnia
- Stress, anxiety
- Difficulty concentrating
