About Naturopathic Integrative Oncology

Published by Dr. Jennifer Nardella

Naturopathic Integrative Oncology is the assessment and treatment of cancer by using both natural and conventional medicine. Naturopathic oncology treatments can increase the efficacy of conventional medical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation and can also help to prevent and manage side effects from those treatments quickly and effectively. Other naturopathic oncology treatments can also help target specific receptors and attack cancer cells by preventing further multiplication and shrinking the size of tumors. Cancer is ultimately a result of an unbalanced immune system in which checkpoints in cell growth and multiplication are disturbed and, therefore, cells uncontrollably grow to form tumors. Naturopathic integrative cancer treatments at the Calgary Nardella clinic include: hyperbaric oxygen therapy, oxidative therapies, intravenous therapies, oral supplemental therapies, specific diet therapy, lifestyle and psychological support. At the Nardella Clinic in Calgary, we are happy to meet patients where they are at in regards to their health journey. Our Calgary Naturopathic Integrative Oncology practice considers the whole patient and focuses on getting positive results.
