The body has an innate gift for healing itself. So, naturopathic medicine is applied in a manner which respects the nature of the human being.
Naturopathy is biologically sound, wholesome, and tailored to the individual patient. Naturopathic oncology includes measures to increase the effectiveness of medical therapies such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, and reduce their harm. Naturopathic Doctors have a potent armamentarium to tackle many of the problems of the cancer patient at all stages of disease and at all stages of therapy. At the Karlfeldt Center we recognize that cancer is not a localized disease, it is a systemic condition that stems from a breakdown of our spiritual, emotional and physical intelligence. One of the main principles of naturopathic oncology is to treat the person who has cancer, not cancer itself.
Each cancer patient is unique and at the Karlfeldt Center we will tailor a comprehensive program that is cancer type specific and evaluates the individual terrain of the patient (toxic emotions and belief systems, chemicals, chronic infections and nutritional deficiencies) that the cancer grows in. In order for the body to defeat cancer, the body must be supported at every level and with every method necessary to reverse cancer’s multi-pronged assault on the body. All this must be done while maintaining the maximum possible wellbeing of the patient.
