“While palliative care is not a primary part of my practice, it sometimes is an inevitable part of working with oncology patients. At Cancer Treatment Centers of America, I use naturopathic medicine every day, modalities that are gentle but effective that can help improve quality of life for these patients. Naturopathic medicine encompasses many healing practices including botanical, homeopathic remedies, stress management, and nutritional therapies. Naturopathic doctors can safely recommend these therapies while avoiding drug-herb interactions. Many clinical studies show the safety and efficacy of natural therapies to help with symptoms like fatigue, dry mouth, grief, anxiety, pain, and wound healing.”
