Naturopathic medicine focuses on getting to the root of health problems rather than just treating symptoms. A naturopathic doctor treats conditions using holistic treatments such as acupuncture, nutritional medicine and allergy testing. A naturopathic physician will take your health history and ask questions about your lifestyle, recommending a customized treatment plan. In treating patients a naturopath can also educate them on intravenous therapy, chelation therapy, supplements and pregnancy health.
Acupuncture is also another great treatment option expecting mothers can use to help alleviate some of their symptoms. In addition to treating nausea and vomiting, it can be used to help manage stress levels as well as treat heartburn and other gastrointestinal disorders.
As with all treatment, especially during pregnancy, it’s really important to discuss with your healthcare provider or your midwife to ensure that these are right for you. If you have any other questions or concerns, please consult with your naturopathic doctor or your midwife.
Oncotherm is one of the most exciting frontiers of cancer treatment and research namely because it’s a very noninvasive form of complimentary cancer therapy, and because it doesn’t cause any additional toxicity to the treatment in addition to the toxicity from standard therapies.
It also improves the outcomes that truly matter to the patient, namely it improves overall survival and it improves quality of life. From a patient experience perspective, Oncotherm is a very comfortable treatment.
Treatments can last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes depending on the area to be treated. And the number of treatments varies depending on what the treatment plan is overall for the patient in the short and long term.
So it depends on what types of other treatments might be integrated as part of the overall plan. It typically can vary anywhere from 12 to up to 24 treatments of Oncotherm. Temporary redness after treatment is quite common, and sometimes there can be some minor burns resembling a sunburn and that’s very easily managed and treatable.
For more information on oncothermia or local regional hyperthermia, find a naturopathic doctor who specializes in integrative cancer care.Presenter: Local Practitioners: Naturopathic Doctor
