What is Integrative Cancer Care?

Receiving cancer treatment can be taxing on the body, causing side effects including nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, and more. Integrative cancer care involves the combination of integrative medicine and therapies alongside conventional cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and surgery. While the conventional cancer treatments work to attack the disease itself, the integrative treatments are implemented to help ease the symptoms, side effects and fallout from conventional cancer treatments.


Our Approach to Integrative Cancer Care

The word cancer can bring up a vast array of fears, concerns, and confusion. Nowadays, modern science has come far to support and care for someone with integrative medicine therapies to address immediate concerns of cancer. This is important and should not be overlooked. Cancer treatment is a long journey, but we are here to help you every step of the way.

At Horizons of Health in Albany, NY, Jennifer Baer and our team believe in a multi-system approach to cancer treatments. The cause often can be overlooked if one is not asking the right questions or doing the right testing. We will support you through this time with treatments to detoxify, cleanse and regenerate based on your individual health issues.

Many of our treatments are not FDA-approved. Our treatments are based on integrative health approaches, and we use alternative therapies rather than conventional ones. The treatments are used to support the body in healing or in managing symptoms associated with conventional treatments for cancer. We do not claim to cure any illness although it is our intention to make your body as healthy as possible.

Besides Functional Medicine testing, we use herbs, homeopathic remedies, and multiple intravenous therapies such as intravenous Vitamin CMistletoe, and Glutathione as well as RGCC testing and Supportive Olglionucleotide Therapy. If you are looking for Integrative or adjunctive or supportive care for a cancer diagnosis, call us today to learn more about how Horizons of Health can help

Benefits of Receiving Integrative Cancer Care

Receiving integrative cancer care helps to maintain and improve your mental and physical wellbeing while receiving conventional cancer treatment. Receiving integrative cancer care can help to ease anxiety, depression, a loss of appetite, insomnia, and others. Integrative medicine can include the use of massage therapy, acupuncture, nutrition therapy, herbal medicine, and more.

Integrative care recognizes that each person's experience with cancer is unique, and as such, treatment plans should be tailored to the individual's specific needs and preferences. This personalized approach might include a blend of chemotherapy or radiation with the many therapies we offer that can be complimentary to cancer care you are already receiving.

The goal with these therapies is to improve both the patient’s quality of life and clinical outcomes by minimizing symptoms, enhancing immune function, reducing treatment side effects, and fostering resilience throughout and beyond cancer treatment.
