Cancer Care Program:
Patients who are pre or post cancer will be supported with individualized treatment care programs, client centered -person care with the support with naturopathic medicine, massage, acupuncture, nutrition, and various body work (access bars/body work). These therapies can be supportive in cancer care prevention, through all types of conventional treatment including chemotherapy and radiation therapy, into active survival and palliative care. Integrative Cancer Care is complementary with conventional care provided by oncologists, and always welcomes a collaborative approach.
I consider each person’s unique needs and offer individualized treatment recommendations based on lab assessments, physical examinations, a full medical history, and review of current health challenges. The naturopathic therapeutic toolbox for cancer care is comprehensive and involves modification in diet and lifestyle as well as herbal and supplemental regimes, and acupuncture. In the future, intravenous infusion therapy might be added to our cancer care toolbox at KIHC.
