Can you think of anyone who has not been intimately affected by cancer? We can’t.
But, the good news is we can think of a number of people who are surviving cancer and thriving due to the advancement of treatments, early dectection, better nutrition, as well as incredible care and support. More and more cancer treatment centres are including a holistic approach of treating the patient as a whole person instead of just treating the disease.
A pioneer in this field is Inspire Health – Integrative Cancer Care, with locations in Vancouver, Victoria and Kelowna.
Here is an excerpt from their website Inspire Health
“Why it works
The Benefits of Integrative Cancer Care
We offer options for better health and a better recovery. Growing scientific evidence confirms that stress reduction, eating a healthy diet, exercise and a positive support network can substantially improve quality of life and optimize recovery and survival, while reducing the risk of recurrence.
We can provide you with the knowledge, tools and services to support your overall health during and after cancer treatment. Our doctors value standard cancer treatments, and working with your family doctor and oncologist, we provide the best cancer care possible.”
