Cancer Care Q & A

What role does naturopathic medicine play in cancer care?

Naturopathic practitioners like Dr. Aussems and Dr. Nagallo at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic can play an important part in supporting people who have cancer, using natural and complementary therapies to support conventional cancer treatments.

Many people who receive a cancer diagnosis are anxious to try any type of therapy that could help them, but unfortunately, there is a great deal of misinformation and fake cures aimed at cancer patients, particularly on the internet. Dr. Aussems and Dr. Nagallo can guide you towards evidence-based information to ensure you’re using safe, effective natural therapies and not ineffective, unverified treatments.

What naturopathic treatments does cancer care use?

Naturopathy is a field of medicine that works in harmony with conventional cancer treatments rather than attempting to replace them. Dr. Aussems and Dr. Nagallo work to optimize the health of every cancer patient’s mind and body in all respects, to boost general well-being, and strengthen patients, so they are better able to withstand their cancer treatments. Some of the approaches used at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Botanical medicine
  • Physical medicine
  • Clinical nutrition
  • Lifestyle counseling

Dr. Aussems and Dr. Nagallo work with other health care providers like your oncologist to improve your quality of life from diagnosis onwards.

They can provide counseling and support to prepare you for what happens following a cancer diagnosis, and help you cope with the side effects of treatments like radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Naturopathic medicine can not only reduce side effects but potentially improve your response to conventional cancer treatments.

Does naturopathic cancer care continue in remission?

Even when you’re in remission or clear of cancer, Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic’s compassionate naturopathic doctors are always there to keep you well and help you stay in the best of health.

Dr. Aussems and Dr. Nagallo continue to support you when your conventional cancer treatments come to an end, making sure you have everything you need to optimize your recovery. They provide ongoing support concerning nutrition and other lifestyle issues that could impact on your recovery and help you adopt healthy habits to reduce the chances of cancer recurring.
