Are you interested in preventing or treating cancer for yourself or a loved one?
What kind of care would you want for a loved one who is fighting cancer?
What can you do to help yourself or a loved one get the best possible current information about the risks and/or benefits of combining various medications with complementary therapies?
These are the questions that I ask at the Canadian Integrative Cancer Centre ask every day. These questions are what motivates me to continually research and understand the available options for care for all patients. My entire focus is driven by whole-person treatment options and by providing the kind of care I would want for my own family members. Here, I intend to care for you like family.
At CICC I understand that cancer doesn't just affect one part of the body or one person in a family. It affects everything in your life. I am not just treating cancer but also symptoms such as insomnia, hormone imbalances, and anxiety in the individual affected or in his/her family members as well. And we know that cancer often does not occur in isolation. Many people are also struggling with sleep concerns, hormone imbalances, appetite changes, muscle aches/pains and nerve symptoms which may be related to, or completely unrelated to cancer. I'm here to work with the whole person.
Often, having a close friend or family member affected by cancer creates a desire to promote personal choices in health care to help prevent any personal experiences with chronic illness. I am here to help guide you in these healthy choices. See the "frequently asked questions" (FAQ) page for more information about this. I am focused on understanding your own personal needs before suggesting treatments. Whether you are working with cancer and trying to support your I believe in your fundamental right to be informed about, and to choose among, the best available options for your cancer treatment/prevention. Rather than telling you what you need, at CICC I will listen to you and provide clear, well-defined options for your care.
When you visit, I hope to offer you a positive experience with clear suggestions to
help you to focus on how you can improve and/or maintain your good health.
