Integrative Prostate Cancer Care
HOLISTIC PROSTATE CANCER CARE
Our naturopathic doctors provide caring and effective integrative prostate cancer care in downtown Toronto. Many of our patients use our treatment in-tandem with their conventional prostate cancer treatments. The combination of both conventional and alternative treatments has been shown to be extremely effective.
Our holistic prostate cancer treatments are designed to fight prostate cancer, strengthen your immune system, and change the underlying conditions of the body so it can manifest its full healing potential. We also work on the underlying reasons why your body may have become predisposed in the first place.
Healing Prostate Cancer Effectively
Don’t mistake our holistic approach to fighting prostate cancer care for being too gentle. It’s actually very aggressive against prostate cancer but much gentler on your body. The program is tailor-made for you, to aggressively and swiftly kill prostate cancer.
In tandem with attacking the prostate cancer itself, we integrate complementary therapies to support your entire body. These prostate treatments & therapies are restorative and work together with the cancer treatment protocol to increase your body’s natural energy production to fight harder, repair and heal.
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 Integrative Prostate Cancer Care Protocols:
Mistletoe IV Therapy for Prostate 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 prostate cancer treatment and it has been shown to improve immune system functioning in people with prostate cancer, which is one of our most important anti-cancer defenses. In women with prostate 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.
High Dose Vitamin C IV for Prostate 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 prostate cancer, IVC may help to improve cancer-related symptoms and various treatment side effects.
Nutritional/Herbal Supplementation for Prostate Cancer
During prostate 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 prostate 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.
Prostate Cancer Diet/Lifestyle Coaching
Dietary and lifestyle changes are integral parts of a prostate cancer care healing protocol. Research has shown that specific ways of eating and certain foods have anti-prostate cancer effects and may help to reduce risk of prostate 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!
