Naturopathic Medicine for Soft Tissue Sarcoma
Every soft tissue sarcoma patient who comes to Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) has the opportunity to see a member of our naturopathic medicine team.
As part of your CTCA care team, naturopathic clinicians work alongside your oncologists to assist with maintaining your overall health and wellness during treatment. Your naturopath will examine your individualized soft tissue sarcoma treatment plan and suggest natural therapies to support your immune system and reduce any treatment-related side effects that may occur along the way.
Your Naturopathic Treatment Plan for Soft Tissue Sarcoma
During your first visit to CTCA, you will meet with a naturopath to discuss your health history, as well as any side effects or symptoms you are experiencing from your soft tissue sarcoma or as a result of previous treatments from other facilities.
The goals of naturopathic treatment for soft tissue sarcoma are to:
- Support normal metabolism and digestion for optimal nutrition during soft tissue sarcoma treatment.
- Manage any side effects of cancer treatment, such as nausea or fatigue.
- Boost immune function.
- Support long-term health and wellness.
Encouraging Healing and Easing Side Effects
The naturopathic medicine teams at CTCA have comprehensive knowledge of all cancer-fighting therapies. Throughout your soft tissue sarcoma treatment, your naturopath will suggest remedies to help to minimize or eliminate any foreseen side effects of upcoming therapies.
Surgery is often the cornerstone of soft tissue sarcoma treatment, and your naturopath can recommend supplements that help you prepare for surgery, keep you strong during surgery and help with healing after your procedure.
After surgery for soft tissue sarcoma, your naturopathic medicine team will focus on supplements that can assist with wound healing, as well as supplements to ease potential side effects, such as excessive bleeding and inflammation. Your clinician can also suggest remedies that may help to prevent metastasis.
If radiation therapy is a part of your treatment plan, your naturopathic medicine team can recommend supplements to help prevent or ease fatigue and reduce the potential risk of radiation dermatitis (skin irritation).
Your naturopath is prepared to assist in alleviating side effects that may occur with chemotherapy, such as nausea, vomiting or fatigue.
Regardless of what type, grade or stage of soft tissue sarcoma you may have, your clinician will tailor a personalized naturopathic treatment plan for you with a goal of decreasing treatment-related side effects.
Soft Tissue Sarcoma Care Under One Roof
Your soft tissue sarcoma naturopathic medicine team will communicate regularly with your oncologists and care providers to make sure that all of your treatments are working together properly to enhance your quality of life and help you in your recovery.
At CTCA, we focus on whole-person care, treating you in mind, body and spirit, all under one roof. By having your care team working together in close proximity, we can create a fully integrated approach to treating your soft tissue sarcoma, and find solutions that meet your individual needs.
