Why consider integrative oncology and complementary medicine when faced with a breast cancer diagnosis? Sometimes called holistic medicine, integrative oncology and complementary medicine addresses how this disease affects the whole person: physically, emotionally, spiritually, and socially. In the face of a cancer diagnosis, most people understandably head straight to surgeons who cut out tumors and to oncologists who use potent chemotherapies and radiation. And for many patients, the treatment ends there – leaving the patient feeling like: what the heck just happened to me? But many experts, including our own Paige Valdiserri, are now saying that it’s time to take a more holistic, long-term approach to the disease, and to pay closer attention to the overall health of patients suffering from cancer. That is why many practitioners, including medical doctors, have embraced the growing field of integrative oncology, which combines the best of conventional and alternative treatments to help in healing the body, mind and spirit of the whole person!
