Naturopathic Therapies for Testicular Cancer
Director of Naturopathic Medicine Katherine Anderson discusses how naturopathic therapies can help men fighting testicular cancer.
Naturopathic Medicine for Testicular Cancer
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), we use the healing benefits of a variety of non-invasive, non-toxic therapies as part of our integrative approach to testicular cancer treatment.
Naturopathic medicine supports your body’s ability to heal itself and can help to minimize the side effects of treatment, as well as increase energy levels, strengthen the immune system and improve overall health. These therapies may include homeopathic medicines, vitamins, minerals and herbs.
Your naturopathic clinician will work with your oncologist and the rest of your care team to identify naturopathic treatments that will work to support the other testicular cancer treatments you are receiving.
Naturopathic Therapies During Testicular Cancer Treatment
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 clinician may make recommendations drawing from a range of naturopathic treatment options, including:
- Herbal and botanical preparations
- Natural therapies
- Homeopathic remedies
- Physical therapy and exercise therapy
- Lifestyle counseling
Throughout your treatment, your naturopath will consult with your team of doctors to ensure that any natural remedies you receive support and complement your other testicular cancer treatments, and to avoid any negative interactions between drugs and supplements.
