We use integrative medicine to naturally support the aspects of your health that must be strengthened to prevent or fight cancer more effectively. Although we don’t directly treat cancer, you can use integrative therapies during traditional cancer therapy, such as chemotherapy or radiation.
Extensive evaluation and specialized testing uncover toxins, weaknesses in immune function, metabolic dysfunctions, or nutritional and hormonal deficiencies in your body that may increase the risk for cancer. Then, targeted natural treatments can be implemented to strengthen your defense.
We support your well-being with integrative therapies that relieve side effects of cancer treatment and promote optimal health during recovery and beyond.
We focus on diagnosing and treating underlying problems such as:
Cellular stress: Chronic inflammation and oxidative stress are just two of the possible health problems that give rise to cancer and make it difficult for healthy cells to fight cancerous changes.
Weak immune system: Many factors weaken your immune system -- toxins, stress, lack of sleep, infections, obesity, excessive sugar consumption -- and a weak immune system makes you susceptible to cancer.
Environmental toxins: Whether you work around chemicals, eat pesticide-containing food, smoke cigarettes, or breathe secondhand smoke, virtually everyone is exposed to some type of environmental toxins, which can cause cancer.
Nutritional status: Adequate nutrition that supports your immune system and fights cancer is important, whether you’ve been diagnosed with cancer or want to maximize your body’s ability to stop cancer from developing.
Depending on the results of tests, your individualized plan may include:
In addition to long-standing blood tests that detect cancer markers, new blood tests are available that identify enzymes secreted by cancers, antibodies your immune system makes against cancer and substances that allow cancer cells to grow. If you test positive for these factors, we can develop an integrative treatment plan to help prevent the disease.
Low-dose naltrexone increases the number of endorphins in your body. These beneficial substances modulate your immune system, inhibit the growth of some types of cancer, and enhance the effect of cancer treatment. We offer low-dose naltrexone therapy when appropriate for your individual health.
