Integrative Lung Cancer Care
HOLISTIC LUNG CANCER CARE
Integrative Lung Cancer Care
Lung cancer, with its continual cough and chest pains, is one of the biggest challenges a person can face. Our caring naturopathic doctors are here to help. We offer a life-changing approach with natural lung cancer treatment in downtown Toronto. We take a whole-body approach to cancer that works in-tandem to conventional therapies.
We work on the underlying reasons why your body may have become predisposed to lung cancer in the first place. Lung cancer is easier to trace than other types of cancer – and that gives us the power to specifically target and focus on supporting your body the way it needs to heal.
Healing Lung Cancer Effectively
Don’t mistake our holistic approach to fighting lung cancer care for being too gentle. It’s actually very aggressive against lung cancer but much gentler on your body. The program is tailor-made for you, to aggressively and swiftly kill lung cancer.
Our goal is to help your body get and stay fully healthy by:
Building up the immune system
Nourishing the body
Reducing the negative side-effects of radiation and chemotherapy
Our holistic lung cancer care program aims to supercharge the body’s most powerful defense, your immune system, and eliminate any toxic substances lodged within the system. After all, when the immune system is running at peak efficiency, it has the power to stop any disease process.
Our Integrative lung Cancer Care Protocols Include:
Nutritional/Herbal Supplementation for Lung Cancer
Herbal supplementation has been shown to be highly effective treating and relieving the symptoms of lung cancer. For example, berberine, a natural compound found in plants such as barberry and goldenseal, suppress the proliferation of lung cancer cells in the lab, new research shows. We use a blend of both Western and traditional Chinese herbs on our patients.
During lung cancer treatment, your safety is our #1 priority. That means any nutritional/herbal supplements we choose for you will not interact with your conventional cancer treatment. Various nutritional/herbal supplements may help to prevent side effects during lung cancer treatment or reduce their severity so that you can maintain a good quality of life and continue your prescribed cancer treatment without any dose delays/reductions. The nutritional/herbal supplements we choose for you will also help to support your body’s natural anti-cancer defenses by supporting immune function, reducing inflammation, and helping with hormonal balance, to name a few. Following treatment, we may also recommend some supplements to be taken long term (i.e. 1 or more years) to help reduce risk of recurrence.
High Dose Vitamin C IV for Lung Cancer
High dose intravenous vitamin C (IVC) has an anti-cancer effect by specifically targeting cancer cells. It is administered through IV because it is impossible to achieve doses high enough to have an anti-cancer effect if taken by mouth. It has a very good safety profile and is well tolerated by most patients. In lung cancer, IVC may help to improve cancer-related symptoms and various treatment side effects.
Mistletoe IV Therapy for Lung Cancer
The use of mistletoe therapy is quite prevalent in Germany and other parts of Europe but it has also been gaining popularity in North America. Mistletoe therapy is safe to use during lung cancer treatment and it has been shown to improve immune system functioning in people with lung cancer, which is one of our most important anti-cancer defenses. In women with lung cancer, mistletoe can also enhance quality of life by improving cognitive functioning, nausea/vomiting, pain, emotional functioning/mood, and digestive function. Some research has also shown that mistletoe may have an overall survival benefit.
Lung Cancer Diet/Lifestyle Coaching
Key dietary and lifestyle changes are integral parts of an integrative lung cancer care protocol. Research has shown that specific ways of eating and certain foods have anti-lung cancer effects and may help to reduce risk of lung cancer recurrence following treatment completion.
Exercise is another key lifestyle change that we incorporate into our treatment plans. All exercise recommendations are tailored to your current level of physical fitness and your preferences. Given that research shows exercise has tremendous anti-cancer effects, we strongly encourage our patients to find physical activities they enjoy and treat exercise like their medicine!
