Integrative Cancer Care

It is our belief that the centre of cancer care should be the patient.

All of their health care providers should strive to work together to support them.  Both Angela Warburton R.TCMP and David Denis ND are very open to working with other healthcare providers including oncologists, surgeons, Traditional Chinese Practitioners, Naturopathic Doctors, chiropractors, therapists, and other allied health professionals.  Patient treatment goals are most often met when all members of the healthcare team strive to work together.

All the members of our team understand the importance of the relationship between the patient and the medical oncology team, but respect the wishes of the patients. Many oncologists are open to discussing treatment when they understand the evidence supporting the treatments being recommended.  Great care is taken to ensure that whatever treatments are used do not negatively interfere with conventional treatments.

Integration also applies to the integration of specific treatments.  As more and more research is done in the areas of nutrition, herbal medicine, supplements, and stress reduction the scientific community is finding that many natural therapies have the capacity to enhance the efficacy of chemotherapeutic agents, radiation, and other targeted therapies.  We believe that an effective treatment plan brings together modalities that work together in a synergistic way, helping each to be more effective than working in isolation.

We work together to help you get the best results from all treatment options while helping to maintain your quality of life in the process.
