Cancer is a systemic illness, not just a problem at the site of the cancer. The answer lies of course on the stage of cancer, the type of cancer and the state of the patient’s health or vitality. Each case should be individually evaluated . It would be wisest to bring in many supportive therapies if diagnosed with cancer; naturopathic care would be very important to support immune function, provide stellar nutrition, and other supportive modalities. Many ND’s are well trained in cancer care via residencies in cancer centers in the U.S. and would be the ideal practitioner. Naturopathic care alone may not be enough. Seek advice and create a health team for best results.
