Benefits of an Integrative Natural Medicine Consult
A coordinated, integrative, naturopathic medical treatment plan that uses complementary and alternative therapies has many benefits. An initial consultation with one of our naturopathic physicians can help you in several ways, including:
- Keeping you as strong and healthy as possible before, during and after conventional medical treatment, including managing side effects of treatment as well as the cancer.
- Safely and effectively incorporating nutritional, botanical and other complementary therapies that have been shown to positively affect your health.
- Supporting your nutritional needs and strengthening your system to help your body fight cancer and other diseases, and to prevent future problems.
- Ensuring that any vitamins, herbs or other treatments you use do not interfere with conventional medical treatments prescribed by your physicians. It is not uncommon for cancer and other patients to use supplements and other treatments that reduce the effectiveness of their medical treatment or increase adverse effects.
