What’s Integrative Medicine?

Integrative medicine offers complementary, evidence-based services that can help boost your quality of life during or after you receive cancer treatments. Adding integrative medicine can help you:

  • Live a healthier lifestyle
  • Reduce side effects of treatment
  • Strengthen your immune system to help your body fight cancer and lower the risk of it coming back
  • Take an active role in your health

  • History of cancer and cancer treatments
  • Physical activity level and exercise abilities
  • Sleeping habits
  • Spiritual concerns
  • Stress level and coping skills
