Cancer Treatment

Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care. While not a licensed medical art in some states, naturopathic medicine is an art, a science, a philosophy and a practice of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of illness. Naturopathic medicine uses the least invasive, most physiologically supportive methods possible. Methods used are consistent with these principles, and are chosen on an individualized analysis of your needs. Naturopathic physicians are primary health care practitioners, whose diverse techniques include modern and traditional, scientific and empirical methods.

There is a strong indication that many forms of cancer may result from the immune system's failure to "block" or inhibit the early growth of cancer cells. After comprehensive testing, a naturopathic practitioner, working in conjunction with nutritionists and physicians, may formulate a therapeutic dietary program, including vitamin and mineral supplements, to help stimulate your immune system. A naturopathic practitioner can work with your physician to customize treatment programs to assist in maintaining your physical well being, lessening the side effects of treatments that help avoid physical weakness.
