Targeted Supplementation

Many natural medicines have proven cancer fighting properties. Many of these medicines also help with side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

These nutrients must be carefully selected based on your individual needs. It is important to see a naturopathic doctor before taking any of these supplements to discuss any possible interactions and to decide which medicines are right for you.

If you are already receiving, or planning to take chemotherapy treatment, the importance of immune system support is vital. Chemotherapy can be an effective treatment for many cancers but it is a treatment proven to be very hard on your body, resulting in often debilitating and life-threatening adverse effects. The greater the effort made before and during chemotherapy to strengthen your body to manage these side effects, the stronger you will be and the more effective the overall treatment regimen will be.
