When you are dealing with cancer, you want to do everything you can to help treat this potentially devastating disease. That is why more and more people are engaging complementary medicine, alongside standard health care, for more complete cancer management and life extension.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, here are some of the common reasons why turning to an integrative cancer centre in Vancouver for treatment might be the right fit for you.

A Holistic Approach to Cancer Care

Health care providers working at an integrative cancer centre take a whole-person approach to treating cancer. Integrative doctors look at a wide range of factors, including the environment, lifestyle choices, personal relationships, and emotional well-being to determine the most effective treatment plan possible.

So, what you end up with is a comprehensive strategy that’ll not only diagnoses the issue, but also addresses the root of the illness.

Diverse Treatment Options

Visiting an integrative cancer centre in Vancouver means you’ll get the best of both worlds of medicine. By combining standard health care with Integrative Therapies, you’ll have a full arsenal of treatment options like Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at your fingertips. And that can make all the difference when it comes to effective cancer management.

At Port Moody Integrative Health we offer a number of different services inaccessible through your conventional healthcare providers including;

A Reduction of Side Effects

Chemotherapy and radiation have a long list of side effects, from fatigue and nausea to loss of appetite and pain. Fortunately, complementary and integrative medicine can help alleviate symptoms of conventional cancer treatments.

If you’re looking for a way to relieve sickness and reduce pain, receiving treatment at an integrative cancer centre can help you deal with the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

Greater Control in Your Health Care

Today’s patients want to be more proactive, taking greater control of decisions that affect their health—and ultimately, the outcomes of their cancer care.

With the work you and your integrative provider do, you’ll have a greater sense of empowerment knowing you got to fully participate in your own care.

Not all medicines are created equal—and that’s good news for battling cancer. While being diagnosed with this awful disease can seem frightening and overwhelming, there is something you can do about it. Adding Integrative Medicine to your cancer-treatment tool box can go a long way to helping you manage cancer more effectively.
