Naturopathy combines the latest developments in modern medicine with time-tested, evidence-based, noninvasive, natural strategies for achieving total health and wellness. While the goal of both conventional and naturopathic medicine is to treat and cure cancer, the primary strategy of naturopathy is to strengthen the body’s own internal disease-fighting abilities to heal itself, not just fight the illness.
Naturopathic recommendations will vary with the specific cancer diagnosis, treatment plan and personal health history. Based on this information, a variety of strategies may be used, blending natural therapies with current advances in leading-edge conventional therapies.
• Supports the immune system in its ability to recognize and destroy cancer cells.
• Inhibits the spread of cancer cells by encouraging the immune system’s natural ability to produce cancer-fighting cells.
• Stops the development of blood vessels that supply nutrients to tumors.
• Encourages normal cell growth.
• Reduces the side effects often associated with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Nutritional Supplements - Many medical conditions can be treated more effectively with foods and nutritional supplements than they can by other means, and with fewer complications and side effects. They may also be used to help enhance the effects of conventional treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation.
Homeopathy - Homeopathy is based on the understanding that natural substances, prepared in diluted doses, can stimulate the natural defenses in the body and help restore health. Some conditions that don’t respond well to conventional medicine may respond to homeopathic therapies.
Botanical Medicine - Many plant substances are powerful medicines when used properly. Where single chemically derived drugs may address a single problem, botanical medicines are often able to address a variety of problems simultaneously. Their organic nature makes botanicals compatible with the body’s own chemistry, and they can be gently effective with few toxic side effects.
Hydrotherapy - Hydrotherapy recognizes the recuperative and healing properties of water through its mechanical and/or thermal effects to treat cancer. It exploits the body’s reaction to hot and cold stimuli, the application of heat, pressure exerted by water and the sensation it gives to lessen the effects of disease.
