Integrative oncology is a new and growing field of cancer care. Integrative oncology is a patient-centered, evidence-based field of comprehensive cancer care that utilizes integrative therapies which simply means it’s an integration of various cancer treatments with or without conventional treatments for cancer.
The central focus of integrative oncology is to optimize your health, quality of life and clinical outcomes across the many stages of cancer care — and to support you in being an active participant in your cancer care.
Benefits of Integrative Oncology
Growing evidence indicates the important role of integrative oncology on outcomes in cancer care, with most studies indicating improvement in symptoms and quality of life including pain, nausea/vomiting, anxiety, hot flashes, insomnia, neuropathy, and dry mouth. As a result, integrative therapies are now being incorporated in national guidelines from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and the American Society for Clinical Oncology.
