It is important to understand that cancer is not difficult to treat. What conventional mainstreet medicine pushes on everyone is what makes it difficult. It can be physically and mentally draining for the patient, as well as their family members. The best way to combat cancer is with integrative oncology. Integrative oncology which uses a combination of traditional medicine with alternative cancer therapies that are designed to help people heal from cancer and help eliminate the desvastating side effects of conventional treatments such as chemothertapy and radiation. Integrative Oncology also helps patients by addressing any underlying issues they may have before they start treatment. This approach not only helps them feel better during their diagnosis and treatment but can also make them more successful in eliminating cancer cells now or in the future.

Integrative treatments are often less expensive than conventional methods alone because they do not use synthetic drugs, meaning you need fewer prescriptions and fewer co-pays. Most importantly, the integrative approach increases the likelihood that you will be in a stronger position to heal from cancer and prevent recurrence of the disease. Integrative treatments encourage your body’s natural defenses to begin working again, making it more likely that they succeed at their task when health restoration is achieved.

 

Integrative Oncology Is The Use Of Alternative Cancer Therapies And Conventional Treatments

Integrative Oncology is the use of alternative cancer therapies and conventional approaches to cancer treatment. This approach provides a comprehensive, holistic treatment for cancer patients that considers the whole person by including their physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs. Integrative oncology practices are typically found in hospitals or clinics that specialize in integrative medicine, such as the Dr. Thomas Lodi Center for Integrative Medicine.

Integrative oncology can be practiced by qualified medical professionals that have been trained properly, including doctors, nurses, naturopathic physicians, and other therapists. Patients benefit from an integrative approach to cancer treatment as it is a more holistic approach to their overall health with little to no side effects. Some patients say that alternative therapies help them heal from cancer as well as having less stress and fatigue in their lives.

Cancer Treatments Can Cause Side Effects, Which Are Avoided With Integrative Oncology

Cancer can be a frightening diagnosis for anyone that is unaware of how to heal from it naturally. What makes it difficult is when you have to deal with the harsh realities of chemotherapy and radiation therapy that are recommended by conventional medicine. They’re not just uncomfortable – they can be devastatingly debilitating, too. That’s why many cancer patients turn to integrative oncology as a way to heal from cancer and feel better and stronger after each day of treatment. Have you ever visited a chemo ward? Each day of chemotherapy treatment makes the patient feel worse but it doesn’t have to be that way. 

What is integrative oncology? It’s an approach that combines alternative cancer treatments with traditional medicine such as Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, Acupuncture, etc. This helps people improve their quality of life and feel better about themselves again.

The Goal Of Integrative Oncology Is To Treat Both The Physical And Emotional Aspects Of Cancer

When it comes to conventional cancer treatment, the most common approach is focused on treating the physical symptoms of the disease. The goal of Integrative Oncology is to treat both the physical and emotional aspects of cancer to provide a more holistic approach that can help patients heal not just their bodies but also their minds. Integrative cancer treatments treat the root cause of why the symptoms occur, conventional treatments do not do this. This type of treatment takes into account any co-existing conditions or mental health issues that may be present in addition to cancer diagnosis. It also includes treatments such as acupuncture, metabolic medicine, meditation, lymphatic massage therapy, nutrition counselling, and various intravenous therapies such as high dose vitamin c, artesunate and B17.

Evidence has shown that this type of approach can improve the quality of life for many people with cancer while also decreasing the risk of cancer recurrence and death. While Integrative Oncology is a growing field, it still has limitations due to a lack of funding and support from the medical community. Insurance providers also do not offer reimbursement for many of these treatments. As such, conventional oncologists may only recommend one or two modalities such as yoga or acupuncture while ignoring more important aspects of care that can greatly improve patients’ physical and emotional well-being. Patients who wish to receive more comprehensive treatment often have to pay out of pocket which presents a financial hardship for some people who already face high medical bills due to cancer diagnoses.

Some Integrative Therapies Include Acupuncture, Meditation, Lymphatic Massage Therapy, Tai Chi, Or Qi Gong

Some integrative therapies include acupuncture, meditation, massage therapy, yoga, Tai Chi, or Qi Gong. Integrative therapies are widely used in the treatment of chronic pain and illness including cancer. One study found that patients with multiple myeloma who underwent an integrative therapy program had a better quality of life than those who did not undergo the same program. These treatments also allow for people to heal at their own pace which can be especially important for children or elderly people.

Integrative therapies offer benefits beyond just physical health as well; they can help promote relaxation and stress relief by improving moods and reducing anxiety levels. They have been shown to reduce blood pressure levels as well. One review found that these therapies can help with many symptoms experienced by people living with a chronic illness including pain, nausea, fatigue, and depression.

Integrative Oncology Has Been Shown To Improve Cancer Survival Rates And Quality Of Life

Integrative Oncology is a medical approach that combines alternative cancer treatments with traditional medicine and in some cases uses the best treatments from the conventional world of medicine. This includes IPTLD or insulin potentiated therapy low-dose chemotherapy. IPTLD targets only cancer cells and has only 5-10% of the toxicity of a regular chemotherapy treatment. So, no hair loss, no nausea, no metal taste in the mouth and most important, the immune system is not destroyed. 

This will also include the use of nutrition throw green juicing, and a raw/vegan diet. Physical activity along with meditation techniques, yoga practices, and other mind-body interventions are included. Integrative oncology has been shown to improve cancer survival rates and quality of life by reducing stress levels in patients. Integrative oncology also included adjunctive treatment for many types of cancers including breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer among others. It has also been found beneficial in eliminating cancer as well as helping prevent the recurrence of cancer.

The benefits are not only felt by the patient but also their loved ones who experience reduced anxiety and improved moods. There are many different ways integrative oncology helps people heal from cancer. Some of the most common include using mind-body interventions such as yoga or meditation, using nutritional therapies such or a vegan ketogenic diet, and using physical activity to improve overall health. Each patient’s situation is unique and will require a tailored approach from the oncologist and integrative health practitioner.
