Integrative Oncology Q&A

What is integrative oncology?

Integrative oncology is a holistic approach to caring for patients with cancer. It combines the highest quality evidence-based medicine with the best aspects of complementary and alternative medical treatments.

With this hybrid approach, the naturopathic physicians at Be Well Medical Primary Care can create a personalized care plan that matches your exact needs.

Receiving a diagnosis of cancer can be frightening and overwhelming, but with integrative oncology, you can be sure of the best possible care during your treatment and recovery.

What might be in my integrative oncology program?

The aim of integrative oncology is to care for you as an individual rather than focusing solely on your cancer and its effects. The treatments in your integrative oncology program reflect the fact that no two cancers and no two patients are the same. 

This means that your program could include various combinations of treatments such as:

  • Herbal supplements
  • Botanical medicines
  • Nutritional support
  • Intravenous (IV) therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Counseling
  • Physical therapy

Complementary therapies promote recovery from cancer and play a significant role in easing the effects of essential treatments like surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.

The integrative oncology providers at Be Well Medical Primary Care work in partnership with your medical oncology team to make sure you receive the most comprehensive and effective integrative oncology care.

Why should I consider integrative oncology?

If you or your child has cancer, it's vital to have the support of someone who's on your side and pays attention to your concerns. 

The integrative oncology providers at Be Well Medical Primary Care offer this invaluable support to help you negotiate the stressful and often bewildering process of conventional cancer care.

Be Well Medical Primary Care takes a patient-centered approach that begins with a detailed explanation of your diagnosis and the conventional treatments your oncologist recommends. 

Your provider takes time to understand your health care needs and helps you make informed decisions about the kind of cancer care you or your child receives.

Cancer doesn't stay the same – it alters throughout your treatment, and you change with it. Integrative oncology addresses all your needs, from physical and mental to emotional and spiritual.
