Introduction to Integrative Oncology presents herbs, compounds and supplements, which have research and proven clinical application to support patients in cancer recovery. Many cancer patients seek out complementary treatments, by some estimates up to 80%. In many cases the solutions are either ineffective or dangerous. This Introduction to Integrative Oncology book looks only at those complementary medicines, which have research to show their efficacy as well as their application in treatment.
Daniel Weber gives a comprehensive background to orthodox Western scientific understanding of cancer biology. Studies of CAM in cancer treatment are also described in detail with both positive and negative reports clearly catalogued. The book tables a comprehensive annotated listing of CAM methods and medicinals from both Western and Chinese practice for use both with cancer, chemotherapy and radiotherapy as well as for Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy side effects.
