Almost 50% of us will develop cancer in our lifetime. Cancer will soon become the leading cause of death.
Attacking cancer with chemotherapy or radiation will kill a great number of the fast-growing cancer cells, but not all. There will always be a certain percentage that will survive. Focusing only on the immediate gratification of tumor shrinkage can leave you handicapped in fighting the long-term battle. The strategy cannot just focus on the cancer, it needs to take into account the individual in which it develops.
Cancer is a multifactorial, complex, intelligent, and adaptive disease.
How Naturopathic Oncology Treats The Person And The Cancer
Each cancer patient is unique and every cancer type must be treated specifically. A naturopathic doctor will evaluate the individual terrain of the patient that may be contributing to the cancer growth, such as: toxic emotions and belief systems, chemical exposures, chronic infections, nutritional deficiencies, microbiome integrity, sensitivities, and pathogens.
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 well-being of the patient.
