Naturopathic Integrative Cancer Care
Naturmend is one of the few Naturopathic clinics in Alberta that offers quality Naturopathic Integrative Cancer Care.
Naturopathic Integrative Cancer Care uses naturopathic medical principles to assist conventional medical therapies (surgery, chemotherapy and radiation) with the goal of treating the whole person.
Our NDs have received additional focused training in providing Naturopathic Integrative Cancer Care to patients undergoing conventional oncology treatments, to ensure that therapies recommended do not interact with conventional medical care (chemotherapy, radiation, hormonal therapy and other targeted therapy, and more). Our goal is to support conventional medical treatments, so that patients are able to complete treatment cycles with less side effects and without compromising the intended purpose of conventional medical treatments.
A big part of Naturopathic Integrative Cancer Care involves patient education. Please note that your ND may make recommendations to stop certain supplements that you may be taking, due to interactions with your conventional medical therapies and for your safety.
