What does integrative cancer treatment mean?
Over the past decades, tremendous progress has been made in the field of standard conventional therapies. Nowadays, cancer therapies are far more effective and specific than just a mere decade ago. However, affected individuals often continue to suffer from the side effects of these therapies for a long time, and their quality of life can be significantly impaired. In a holistic or integrative therapeutic approach, various procedures are combined, such as conventional medical treatment methods, naturopathic treatments, anthroposophic medicine, psychooncology, etc.
This allows for a cancer therapy tailored to the needs of each patient individually, often resulting in a tremendous improvement of the overall quality of life. The patient is always the center of attention. In terms of this holistic or integrative medicine, cancer can be treated comprehensively and individually at the same time, as all useful therapeutic measures are combined.
