Adjunctive (Supportive) Cancer Care

Cancer treatment is generally based on a “tumour-oriented model,” which tries to fight cancer by attacking the tumour through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.  Adjunctive cancer care at the RSNC takes a whole-person approach to supporting those living with cancer.  Naturopathic medicines, based on methods grounded in science, can help individuals undergoing conventional cancer treatment, with the goals of:

  • Decreasing side effects of cancer treatment
  • Improving energy, well-being and overall quality of health
  • Balancing the body’s immune system
  • Providing strategies for cancer prevention and health maintenance

Our supervising naturopathic doctors Dr. Dan Lander, ND and Dr. Payam Kiani, ND and their senior interns, will together develop an individualized plan for your adjunctive cancer treatment.
