Naturopathic Therapy for Thyroid Cancer
Director of Naturopathic Medicine Katherine Anderson discusses how naturopathic therapies can help people fighting thyroid cancer.
Naturopathic Medicine for Thyroid 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 thyroid cancer treatment.
Natural therapies support 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 natural options that will work to support the other treatments you are receiving for thyroid cancer.
Naturopathic Therapies During Thyroid 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 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, your naturopath will consult with your team of doctors to ensure that any natural remedies you receive support and complement your other treatments for thyroid cancer, and to avoid any negative interactions between drugs and supplements.
