Cancer

Cancer Treatment Program

The  majority of patients with cancer choose our services in combination with conventional cancer treatment. Naturopathic medicine prevents or alleviates the side effects of conventional treatments, while at the same time enhancing their efficacy. Naturopathic therapies are also directed towards strengthening the immune response to cancer.

Dr. Traub is board certified in naturopathic oncology by the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology (ABNO), and is a member of the ABNO Board of Medical Examiners. For more information about ABNO and the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians, see www.oncanp.org.

Treatment Programs

Based on a comprehensive medical history, Dr. Traub designs a personalized treatment protocol specific for the type and stage of cancer, its unique genetics, the specific chemotherapeutic agents or radiotherapy the patient may be receiving, and the individual aspects of the patient and their health.

Various natural therapies include:  dietary recommendations, exercise, stress management, nutritional and herbal supplements, homeopathy, high dose intravenous vitamin C and other IV treatments, detoxification, and psychospiritual support.

Protocols are extensively researched and largely based on published studies found in mainstream medical and scientific journals.  The purpose of the treatment plan is to:

• Enhance the effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiotherapy

• Decrease the toxicity and side effects of conventional treatment

• Destroy cancer cells and/or inhibit their growth

• Strengthen the immune response to cancer

• Reduce pain and other discomforts

• Decrease the risk of recurrence

Dr. Traub works in close collaboration with oncologists, and makes referrals to other specialists as necessary.
