Integrative Oncology Q & A

What is integrative oncology?

Integrative oncology involves the use of alternative, holistic, and complementary therapies to assist with the treatment of cancer. Integrative oncology effectively integrates alternative and conventional medicine options to treat cancer, relieve or diminish symptoms, and enhance wellness, mindset, and quality of life.

Integrative oncology involves looking at the whole body as one interconnected system. With integrative oncology at Integrative Medica, Dr. Schmutz looks at your physical and emotional symptoms and provides treatment options to boost your immune system and enhance your physical and emotional strength and resilience.

The right alternative therapies can assist you during and after your conventional cancer treatment. Integrative oncology also involves preventive treatments to keep the cancer from returning.
