Integrative Oncology is the use of evidence informed natural medicines alongside conventional treatment to promote:
- Enhance treatment outcomes from standard oncology
- Side effect prevention and management
- Personalised treatment to improve long term health and wellbeing
- Patient empowerment and support
I offer evidence informed Naturopathic support for Oncology side effects including:
Anemia, Anxiety/Stress, Arthralgia/Myalgia, Bone density, Constipation/Diarrhoea, Depression, Digestive issues, Eating Difficulties, Fatigue, Headaches, Hot flushes, Immune support, Insomnia, Libido/Vaginal dryness, Loss of appetite, Lymphedema, Memory/Cognition, Malnutrition/Weight loss, Mucositis/Dry mouth, Nausea/Vomiting, Neutropenia, Numbness, Pain, Palmar-plantar erythrodysesthaesia (PPE), Peripheral neuropathy, Radiation burns, Taste/Smell deficiencies and more...
Often this requires some very simple dietary, nutritional or lifestyle modifications or evidence based herbal medicine and the symptom is resolved. With so much good science endorsing the use of complementary medicines to support oncology patients I can't wait for the day this forms part of the standard oncology care system as it does in much of Europe, UK, Canada and USA.
If you would like to learn more about how Integrative Oncology could help you or you are a Naturopathic Practitioner looking for support in this area please don't hesitate to contact me.
