Integrative Oncology: The Future of Cancer Care Treatment

 
Integrative Oncology: The Future of Cancer Care Treatment

Integrative medicine treats the whole person - mind, body, and spirit – using evidence-informed modalities. Integrative oncology synergistically merges integrative medicine and conventional oncology. People with cancer benefit greatly from integrative medicine techniques that optimize health during and after conventional cancer treatment and that make the body as inhospitable to cancer as possible. 
 
This class will discuss major integrative oncology modalities. We will explore: 

· mind-body techniques such as meditation, guided imagery and hypnotherapy
· massage/healing touch
· traditional Chinese medicine including acupuncture
· oncologic nutrition
· botanicals such as cannabis, CBD oil, milk thistle and mushrooms
· aromatherapy
· oncologic Yoga, Qigong and Tai Chi.
