Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States, with the overall estimate of new cases of invasive cancer expected in 2018 to be over 1.7 million—or what is the equivalent of 4,700 new cancers diagnosed each day.
Although conventional cancer treatments have substantially reduced cancer-related deaths, these therapies often produce adverse side-effects that negatively impact patients’ quality of life (QOL). Consequently, many cancer patients suffer from both the symptoms of cancer itself and, even as if not more painful, the side-effects related to conventional treatments.
Integrative oncology—a patient-centered approach to cancer care that utilizes mind and body practices, natural products, and/or lifestyle modifications from different traditions alongside conventional care—has emerged to address these concerns. Its primary aim is to optimize patient health, QOL, and clinical outcomes across the cancer care continuum, essentially empowering people to become more active participants in their healthcare before, during, and beyond cancer treatment.
WholeHealth deploys various complementary treatments to create a supportive environment as cancer patients undergo chemotherapy and radiation, toward reducing pain, anxiety, nausea, fatigue and other side-effects.
