Over 1.5 million people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the Unites States. A cancer diagnosis is life-changing. Treatment can be physically, emotionally and financially taxing. Naturopathic physicians work together with patients through every step of this journey:
Drawing on their decades of combined experience in the field of naturopathic oncology, Dr. Prenguber and Dr. Winters will review the role of a naturopathic physician through each of these phases of cancer care. Some basic research will be reviewed and cases will be discussed.
