Integrative oncology is the study and treatment of cancer in adults by a combination of ‘Eastern’ and ‘Western’ methods. Cancer and related illnesses are always difficult, but their effects on the holistic wellbeing of the patient and their family are often under-addressed by purely western medical approaches.
At the Wellbeing Medical Group, we seek to use integrative medicine to support traditional chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery and immunotherapy. These are areas where Western medicine truly excels, but these treatments still have substantial limitations, drawbacks and side effects.
In addition to treating the primary patient, we seek to improve the wellbeing of the entire family. Family members can be devastated by a cancer diagnosis as well, and our holistic and psychological treatments seek to improve the mental and physical health of the entire family, improving the quality of life for all.
