Integrative Cancer Care
Integrative cancer care brings all available scientific and traditionally tested therapeutics together for optimal outcomes and quality of life. This approach to care also concentrates on the whole person and how to create an internal environment that is not only optimized during and after cancer treatment, but is also inhospitable to recurrence. Incorporating naturopathic medicine into cancer treatment uses complementary therapies and modalities that not only support conventional medical treatment, but also employ strategies that minimize the amount of harm to the body during treatment.
In the setting of cancer diagnosis and treatment, patients are faced with an overwhelming multitude of information ranging from very eclectic to research-based sources. A naturopathic doctor such as Dr. Cooluris can guide a patient through this confusing informational marketplace to identify the best- targeted treatment plan for specific and individualized cancer care needs.
Dr. Cooluris views the cancer setting to be a deeply personal journey for her patients and respects individual preferences in navigating through this process. She works collaboratively with all practitioners within the oncology community to help create the optimal team of providers for each of her patients. She strives to help her patients feel confident in their course of action and believes strongly that every decision should be based on a well-informed and well-educated foundation.
