Whole-Person Cancer Care
``Managing cancer requires an approach in which all aspects of a person's life are considered``
On these pages you’ll find a set of resources focused on whole-person cancer care and how to make it routine.
Through the inclusion of evidence-based therapies such as nutrition, movement, meditation and others, patients will activate their individual ability to heal as they go through cancer treatment and into survivorship.
Personalized Care Across the Cancer Journey
From the point of diagnosis, patients are thrust into an unknown and overwhelming situation.
In the throes of cancer treatment, patients find themselves coping with a variety of side effects.
Integrative oncology supports conventional care by empowering and engaging patients to take an active and preventative role in their health. Integrative oncology combines conventional care (chemotherapy, radiation and surgery) with complementary and lifestyle therapies such as nutrition, exercise, acupuncture and yoga and supports whole-person healing.
Conventional care is needed to treat the disease and complementary therapies are there to support the individual’s quality of life during and beyond treatment.
