NATUROPATHIC ONCOLOGY

The naturopathic oncologists at AIM seek to support and improve the health of the person with cancer. In general, the healthier and stronger you are, the better your quality of life, as well as your treatment options. naturopathic oncology

Our physicians understand that every cancer diagnosis is unique; we work as a part of your medical team to meet your individual needs, providing care that continues even after your conventional cancer treatment is complete.

Some areas of our focus include:

Prevention of recurrence of cancer

Individualized nutrition programs

Immune system management

Managing symptoms of chemotherapy, radiation or other conventional treatments

Alternatives to aromatase inhibitors

Non-conventional treatment options

Naturopathic oncology focuses on your health as an individual, lays the groundwork for your treatments to be as effective as possible and offers care that stays with you for a lifetime.

How do you know if someone is qualified as a naturopathic oncologist?

You should look for someone who is board certified and has been awarded the status of Fellow by the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology (FABNO). “The OncANP (Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians) supports advanced training of Naturopathic Doctors in Oncology.  Successfully board-certified members are awarded the status of Fellow by the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology (FABNO). These Fellows meet the highest standard of the profession.” – (OncANP description of Naturopathic Oncology).

At AIM, we are proud to have two FABNO physicians in our midst, including the Founding President of the OncANP, Dr. Dan Rubin.

Dr. Melissa Coats has also been awarded FABNO status.

Through our years of experience, we’ve come to know how important quality of life is when someone is fighting or recovering from cancer. Necessary medicines or the disease itself can cause side effects that totally change how life works and sometimes those changes are debilitating.

We don’t just want to help people live, we want to help them live well!  We have a host of therapies that are designed to build strength, the ability to stay active, improve appetite, and to have the strength to be with and enjoy loved ones. No matter how it feels sometimes, remember, life is so much more than just the treatments you go through or the diagnosis you have.

AIM offers an integrative approach to the person with cancer and our physicians are experts at helping you achieve a safe and effective combination of natural therapies with conventional treatments, reduced side effects, as well as restored health and vitality after completion of cancer treatments. However, our clinic also has programs for those that cannot tolerate conventional therapy, those for which conventional therapy has failed them, and for those that have chosen not to undergo any conventional therapy.

Invest in your health!
