From Living Beyond Breast Cancer: For hundreds, and in some cases thousands, of years, people with cancer have relied on complementary therapies to manage the toxic effects of cancer and its treatment. But only in the last few decades have these methods, now collectively termed integrative care, become an accepted part of mainstream Western medical care.
As these integrative therapies grow more available at treatment centers and elsewhere, how do you determine what’s safe and most helpful to you? Our panel of experts and people who’ve been impacted by breast cancer will explore the movement toward integrative cancer care and offer practical advice for making daily choices – in food, exercise, supplements, environmental exposures and more – that could improve your quality of life and increase your sense of control over your health.
