NDs who focus on cancer support can help you live better with cancer.
Naturopathic doctors with training in cancer care are equipped with tools, such as acupuncture, cancer-specific nutrition knowledge, nutrient IV therapy, and herbal medicine to support your health during cancer treatment.
Research shows that cancer patients who receive support from qualified complementary health professionals (such as an ND, acupuncturist, or registered massage therapist) during treatment have improved quality of life and outcomes.
Naturopathic doctors with additional cancer care knowledge are highly trained in managing low appetite, pain, fatigue, stress, brain fog, diarrhea, and constipation caused from treatment.
Using a personalized approach that suits your health goals and needs, NDs can help you to feel your best while living with a cancer diagnosis
