Naturopathic oncology is a medical specialty that focuses on diagnosing and treating cancer. By specializing in naturopathic oncology, your oncologist curates your treatment to alleviate your cancer symptoms using natural approaches.
Your oncologist oversees your treatment, which may include immunotherapy, nutritional support, pain management, and other methods, and makes any necessary adjustments to your plan.
Integrative naturopathic oncology complements traditional cancer treatments to help manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
Chemotherapy and other conventional cancer treatments can take a toll on your physical and mental health. Integrative naturopathic oncology takes a whole-body approach to care that may reduce cancer pain, relieve nausea, and improve treatment outcomes.
A personalized, integrative naturopathic oncology plan may include:
Intravenous (IV) therapy uses a catheter to deliver fluids, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and medications directly into your bloodstream. By bypassing your digestive system, IV therapy’s effects reach you immediately with maximum potency.
Acupuncture is a type of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that involves inserting thin metal needles into predetermined areas of your body. It can help relieve pain, promote healthy digestion function, improve sleep quality, and enhance your energy levels.
Tumor genetics takes a closer look at your cancer to detect changes in its progression and inform the best treatment approach. At Precision Integrative Oncology, the team utilizes multiple molecular testing platforms, including Guardant360® and Caris®, to analyze tumor genetics and develop conventional and naturopathic therapy plans.
Naturopathic pain management focuses on nonsurgical and medication-free treatments for pain and discomfort. From IV therapy to acupuncture, Precision Integrative Oncology offers high-quality pain management techniques to complement traditional cancer treatments.
