Complementary and Adjunctive Cancer Care is about recognizing the importance that patients receive the best in supportive therapy, and to supplement conventional cancer treatment. It is about using the most successful natural cancer therapies available globally to encourage healing of the body without doing harm. Conventional treatment often focusses solely on treating the tumor with little emphasis on the entirety of health of the patient. The goal of Integrative Cancer Care is to bridge conventional medicine with natural support before, during and after treatment.
The outcomes of addressing a patient's goals include facilitating the body's ability to heal, improving quality of life, providing counselling support, and making the journey as comfortable as possible. Taking the time to understand the patient's condition, prognosis and mental/emotional state is key to creating an individualized plan for all patients.
