Effective complementary care helps patients to better manage conventional treatment side effects, improve response to treatment, lower the risk of recurrence, and optimise health.
We speak to Dr Lise Alshuler to find out; What are the real facts about safety when it comes to supplements alongside cancer therapies?
This seminar will provide an overview of cancer as the result of a confluence of multiple factors. The process of carcinogenesis will be assessed as one influenced by both extrinsic systemic conditions as well as by intrinsic cellular aberrations. Armed with this holistic understanding, practitioners will be equipped to identify individual risk factors and will have the underlying rationale for comprehensive prevention and management strategies.
In this podcast we learn: What are telomeres? and what can they tell us about the state of our health and resilience to disease?
In conjunction with Endeavour College of Natural Health and ARCCIM, University of Technology Sydney, Blackmores Institute invites healthcare professionals and students of complementary medicine to hear the latest on the big questions relating to integrative topics in complementary therapies with a series of Quarterly Scientific Meetings.
Cancer is a disease that continues to baffle even the most advanced research institutes. Exhaustive studies continue to be conducted in a desperate attempt to understand the disease and how we may effectively prevent and treat it.
Lise explores the emotional impact which patients have to endure when faced with a cancer diagnosis and the strategies to maintain optimism, she reveals some of the newer diagnostic criteria and tumour-activity markers, and discusses the place of safe, supportive care in cancer patients to aid in the orthodox treatment, including exercise, stress management, sleep and healthy, vegetable-based diet.
