What is Naturopathic oncology?
Naturopathic Oncology integrates conventional medical strategies and naturopathic integrative therapies for assessing, treating and managing cancer diagnoses. Integrative Oncology research and its clinical applications to patient cases is already flourishing in hospitals and medical centres across the globe for decades. Germany is on the forefront of incorporating naturopathic and conventional medical approaches to increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiation, while reducing side effects, prolonging lifespan and increasing overall quality of life. Clinical research enthusiasts come from a variety of backgrounds and include: oncologists, radiologists, naturopathic oncologists and other specialists, depending on the type of cancer being researched.
Benefits of integrative oncology include improved quality of life, reduction in the risk of recurrence, reduction in side effects from chemotherapy and radiation and increased efficacy of cancer treatments. It is also important to note that naturopathic doctors officially trained in Integrative Oncology are sure to not recommend any agents that would reduce the effectiveness of conventional medical therapies.
Naturopathic oncology treatments are also effective in having a direct impact on tumour cells. Targeted therapies such as these can include oral, intravenous and other injection therapies, which can ultimately affect tumour cells at the molecular level. These therapies work on tumours to prevent what we call cell proliferation or growth and some agents can be used to help induce apoptosis or killing of cancer cells.
