Description

All healthcare practitioners, regardless of clinical emphasis, are likely to have cancer survivors in their practice – it is reported that within the next decade, there will be more than 18 million cancer survivors in the United States. Naturopathic doctors are uniquely positioned to guide this population to optimal health using their knowledge of preventive medicine, nutritional counseling and natural medicine. This presentation will review the fundamentals for supporting key pathways for optimal wellness and risk reduction for cancer survivors. Specifically, evidence-­ informed, oncology-­‐specific strategies to address common after-­‐effects of conventional treatment such as fatigue, peripheral neuropathy, chemobrain and insomnia will be presented. Finally, the talk will include an overview of key nutrient indications and contraindications that are important to manage for cancer survivors.
