You may be considering alternative cancer treatments like herbal medicines or nutritional medicine in combination with conventional medicine for a recently diagnosed cancer. Oncology medicines can interact with natural therapies so please contact the clinic to discuss your options. I’d like to help you get the best treatment outcome by using a holistic approach. It is very important to understand the interactions between oncology drugs, nutrients and herbal medicines.
The Cura clinic uses a supportive role to help you with the effective and correct use of holistic medicine in assisting to limit the side effects of surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and hormonal treatments. We also use natural therapies, diet and lifestyle to attempt to reduce the risk of the cancer returning after remission.
Medical and naturopathic treatments can work well in combination and give the best possible outcome. Medical treatment is effective at physically removing or attacking the cancer, whereas natural therapies strengthen and support the mind and the body, and alleviate any side effects. Together they work well as an integrative medicine.
It is important to tailor a treatment for you as an individual and support for you during and after your medical treatments. To achieve the best possible outcome it is recommended to work with both an oncologist and a integrative medical practitioner. We can liaise with your doctor, specialists and hospital pharmacy team to ensure that the natural remedies are compatible and supportive to your medical treatments.
Some patients consider cancer without treatment. It is important to discuss all treatment options to identify the most effective and appropriate for the patient.
