We’ll be building handbooks on broad cancer types. While we’re assembling the new handbooks, we share these from our predecessor site, Beyond Conventional Cancer Therapies. We expect to start publishing updates by the end of 2022.
Topics that may be included in handbooks:
- Quick Reference to integrative therapies
- Signs, symptoms and screening for this type of cancer
- Expert guidance on integrative care for this cancer type
- Examples of integrative approaches
- Integrative approaches with surgery
- Taking care of your heart: cardiac toxicity
- Other topics specific to cancer types
Find complementary therapies for each cancer type
You can search for therapies showing benefit for a specific cancer type in our reviews of complementary therapies. Select a cancer type from the filters along the left side of the page.
Integrative approaches to cancer treatment
Integrative approaches starting before surgery can improve your resilience, your response to surgery, and your recovery.
You may have reached a point where conventional treatments are not right for you. We help you assess your options.
Palliative care focuses on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness.
From guidance on how to assess your treatment options to finding practitioners and clinics, this handbook is a how-to guide.
Building your body terrainthe internal conditions of your body, including nutritional status, fitness, blood sugar balance, hormone balance, inflammation and more is an important complement to conventional treatments, extending the benefits of those treatments by reducing your risk of recurrence and improving your overall health.
More handbooks are under development
