Alternative and Complementary Cancer care Services

Integrated Cancer Care

Cancer treatment today often focuses solely on aggressively attacking tumour cells through surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. While these conventional methods remain crucial components of an effective medical treatment plan, they frequently fail to address how cancer and its treatments impact a patient holistically.

An integrative approach to cancer care aims to treat the whole person, not just the disease. At our clinic, we combine mainstream cancer therapies with evidence-based complementary treatments that support patients physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The goal is to optimize health, quality of life, and healing throughout the cancer journey.

Integrative cancer care views you as a whole human being rather than just a diagnosis. We take the time to understand each patient’s unique circumstances, health history, priorities, and concerns. This enables us to develop a personalized integrative treatment plan suited to your individual needs and situation.

Our integrative care team works closely with you while providing access to the most current scientific research on complementary cancer therapies. You are empowered to take an active role in the healing process with our support and guidance.

We believe this is the future of effective cancer care – integrating conventional and complementary modalities to address all aspects of your health. With our integrative approach, you can face cancer with resilience, strength, and hope.

Our Integrative Cancer Care Philosophy

At our clinic, we believe integrative cancer care should address the whole person - body, mind and spirit. Cancer is not just a disease of mutated cells, but one that impacts every aspect of a patient's life. We aim to care for the entire being.

The physical distress of cancer and conventional treatments like chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery can be immense. Pain, fatigue, nausea, peripheral neuropathy, and other debilitating symptoms often significantly diminish quality of life. We integrate complementary therapies like acupuncture, massage, and nutrition to reduce these physical issues.

Emotional health is profoundly affected after a cancer diagnosis. Anxiety, depression, fear, anger, and isolation often arise. Counseling, support groups, stress management techniques, and other therapies can foster emotional healing.

Spiritual wellbeing also requires nurturing. A diagnosis frequently triggers deep introspection of life's meaning. Meditation, yoga, journaling, and chaplain visits can help support spiritual health during the cancer journey.

We believe the best way to optimize healing is through integrative care that nourishes a patient’s entire being. The body depends on the mind, the mind impacts the body, and spiritual health underlies both. Our philosophy recognizes this interconnectivity.

True healing means more than just attacking tumour cells. It means supporting all facets of a patient's health – not just the physical, but mental, emotional and spiritual as well. Our integrative approach strives to do just this.

Benefits of Integrative Cancer Care

Integrative cancer care offers patients many evidence-based benefits, including:

  • Improved quality of life – Complementary therapies reduce side effects of conventional treatment like pain, fatigue, nausea, that impair daily living. Integrative care supports overall wellness.
  • Strengthened immune system – Certain natural therapies boost immune function weakened by cancer treatments. This enhances the body's ability to fight cancer.
  • Decreased inflammation – Chronic inflammation can fuel cancer growth. Integrative treatments like diet, supplements, acupuncture, and meditation reduce inflammatory responses.
  • Supported emotional health – Therapies like counseling, support groups, and stress management techniques help patients cope with the emotional trauma of a cancer diagnosis.
  • Enhanced spiritual wellbeing – Complementary therapies like meditation, yoga, art therapy, and chaplain visits can nourish spiritual health to give meaning and inner peace.
  • Patient empowerment – Integrative care encourages patients to take an active role in their treatment. This instils a sense of control and confidence.
  • Improved treatment tolerance – Therapies to reduce side effects allow patients to better withstand the rigours of conventional treatments like surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.
  • Long term health – Integrative care not only helps during active cancer treatment, but promotes lasting health by addressing root causes that optimize whole person health.

The goal of integrative cancer care is to support patients physically, emotionally and spiritually during treatment while empowering lasting wellness. By harmonizing conventional and complementary therapies, integrative medicine delivers outstanding benefits.

Cancer Care Treatment Modalities Offered

We offer a wide range of integrative cancer therapies that can be used alongside conventional treatment to provide comprehensive whole person care. Some of our main treatment approaches include:

Integrative Medicine 

Our physicians develop fully customized integrative treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs and goals. These integrate appropriate conventional cancer treatments with evidence-based complementary therapies.

Mistletoe Therapy

Mistletoe extracts have shown promising benefits for quality of life, immune system stimulation, and potential anti-tumor effects. Our clinic utilizes therapeutic protocols to provide the best possible dosages and applications of mistletoe.

Ozone Therapy

Medical-grade ozone administered via methods like autohemotherapy has been shown to stimulate the immune system, reduce inflammation, improve oxygenation, and promote healing.

IV Therapies

Intravenous delivery of agents like high-dose vitamin C, antioxidants, minerals, and glutathione can directly boost immune function and help manage treatment side effects.

Medicinal Mushrooms 

Compounds isolated from mushrooms like turkey tail, reishi and cordyceps have demonstrated anti-cancer, immunomodulating and inflammation-reducing properties that can complement conventional treatment.

We also offer additional complementary modalities such as hypnotherapy, homeopathy, counseling, and nutrition planning. Our team works closely with patients to create truly comprehensive integrative cancer care plans.

The goal of all our cancer care therapies is to support the whole patient while working synergistically with primary cancer treatments.
