Integrative Oncologyis a whole-body therapy that aims to improve quality of a patient’s life by enhancing the effectiveness and response rate of conventional cancer treatments with less side-effect through a multi-disciplinary approach combined with oriental, functional, nutrition, and mind-body medicine as adjunct to standard medical care such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Integrative oncology has already been widely used in a few countries including the United States, German, and Japan for years and numerous studies and clinical research have been published.
However, the reality is that even though cancer patients are interested in accessing Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) therapy, they only get vague advice and restriction from their doctors, which lead them to listen and follow advice from people who lack medical knowledge.
It is common to get confused between Integrative Oncology and CAM . We can say that Integrative Oncology has a parallel with modern medicine which is evidence-based since integrative oncology is a combination of both conventional medicine and alternative medicine, yet it does not embrace all alternative medicine treatments, but only embrace evidence-based treatments that have been shown to be safe and effective.
