Overview

This edition of Naturopathic Oncology has been completely revised, reorganized, expanded and updated. It provides practical, useful information on all aspects of cancer care.

The entire repertory of natural medicines and drugs are introduced, and applied to all the major cancer types. Dietary, nutraceutical, botanical, mind-body and drug protocols are clearly described, and their rational basis explained, backed up by research references. Find how to apply integrative naturopathic medicines to support the standard of care in oncology - surgery, chemotherapy, targeted drugs and immunotherapy - to make these safer and more productive. Alternative medicines are also given for all cancer types, as well as for the care of adverse effects of therapies, complications, and emergencies. From diagnostics to psychology to prevention, it is an encyclopaedic and user-friendly guide to better outcomes in cancer.
