Children’s Integrated Oncology, also called Integrated Paediatric Cancer Care, is the study and treatment of cancer in children by a combination of ‘Eastern’ and ‘Western’ methods. Cancer and related illnesses are always difficult, but they are particularly tragic for young patients and their families.
At Wellbeing Medical Group, we seek to use integrated medicine to support traditional chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery and immunotherapy techniques. These are areas where Western medicine truly excels, but these treatments still have substantial limitations, drawbacks and side effects.
Perhaps equally importantly, we seek to improve the wellbeing of the entire family, not just the patient. Parents, siblings and other family members can be equally devastated by a cancer diagnosis as the patient, 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.
