Integrative Cancer Care With the WHOLE YOU in Mind
A cancer diagnosis can be emotionally, physically and financially devastating on patients with cancer, their family and their friends too. Deciding which combination of treatments are right for you can be overwhelming and integrative oncology helps you navigate the often uncertain waters on your journey and educate you about both natural and conventional treatments available to you.
Whether it be through the use of targeted supplementation, lifestyle changes, intravenous nutritional therapy or hyperbaric oxygen, integrative oncologists offer you personalized, effective treatments that are only just part of a holistic plan in the fight against cancer.
Regardless of your diagnosis, there is absolutely no question that your lifestyle (which goes much beyond your diet) has a dramatic impact on your health. This indicates that changing and improving your lifestyle can help to improve your health. At Conscious Human Medicine, we always prioritize lifestyle improvements and a quality supplementation regimen that is both personalized and targeted to your needs and complements all the other amazing treatment modalities that we offer.

Intravenous Nutritional Therapy
One of the mainstays of integrative cancer care at Conscious Human Medicine is Intravenous (IV) Nutritional Therapy. IV Nutritional Therapy uses the healing power of vitamins, minerals and other powerhouse nutrients to reduce unwanted side effects of conventional therapies, like chemotherapy and radiation, improves quality of life and helps in the fight against cancer. We offer infusions of High-dose Intravenous Vitamin C (IVC) that have been shown in research trials to be an effective treatment in improving immune function and providing support in eradicating some forms of cancer. Other treatments that are often recommended include Alpha-Lipoic Acid infusions, intravenous Glutathione, Myer’s Infusions and many more! Learn More
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Did you know that many forms of cancer are unable to survive when exposed to higher than normal oxygen levels in the body? Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) uses pressure to supersaturate the blood with oxygen. As the increased oxygen circulates throughout the body in the bloodstream, it goes to the site of tumors and may be able to speed up healing. While HBOT may not be right for every type of cancer and every person, it should be at least considered as part of an integrative cancer treatment plan. Learn More
Helping You Take Care of Your Mental AND Physical Health
Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be life altering not just for you but also for your loved ones. You may be feeling stress, overwhelm, constant uncertainty, hopelessness and even fear about your condition. Did you know that your mental and emotional well-being has a direct impact on your physical health and vice versa?
Regardless of the type of cancer and severity of the diagnosis, developing emotional resilience can have a significant positive impact on your journey and even potentially the outcome. And you do not have to do this alone! At Conscious Human Medicine, we offer a number of tools, techniques and modalities to support your mental and emotional well-being and help cultivate resilience.
Do you feel exhausted, anxious, overwhelmed with a much lower threshold to deal with stress in your life? Biofeedback is an amazing treatment that can improve your mood, boost your energy, help you sleep better and give you tools to tackle even the most stressful situations. Receiving a cancer diagnosis often means your life is going to turn upside down and you feel like you’re drowning in the chaos. Biofeedback allows you to regulate your physiology and as a result be able to change/shift your psychology and state of mind. You will learn to shift your nervous system such that you can reside in a state that is more conducive to healing and recovery. Learn More
Craniosacral therapy is a very gentle form of bodywork. Light touch is applied throughout the body, with emphasis on the head, lower back and pelvis. It helps to regulate your nervous system, reduce pain and inflammation, produce a deep state of relaxation and restore vitality. Sometimes, you just need to lie down comfortably and let someone else do the work! Through regulating your nervous system, without having to try or do anything you will be able to achieve a deep state of relaxation during which your body can have the opportunity to heal and recover.
Some conventional treatments, like chemotherapy and radiation, and the process of cancer itself, can cause undesirable effects in your body. Fatigue, weakness, neuropathy, gastrointestinal upset are very common and can make an impact on your quality of life. Biopuncture, just like acupuncture, uses very thin needles that are inserted in specific points along the body and can dramatically improve many of the unwanted symptoms that you may be facing because of cancer or conventional treatments. When combined with some of the other integrative treatments that we offer, it can be even more impactful! Learn More
Guiding You On Your Path Towards Health With Confidence
Navigating the waters when it comes to your health or the health of your loved ones after receiving a cancer diagnosis can be very challenging. You may feel stressed and overwhelmed about making many time-sensitive and crucial decisions or feel like you are not properly informed while being rushed and pressured into making these life-changing choices.
