"So when do you think they'll finally figure out how to cure cancer?" This simple question posed during dinner one evening sparks a conversation that will change the lives of four lifelong friends forever. What starts as a simple discussion about the high cost of cancer and the merits of early detection quickly evolves into a much deeper and more informed dialogue about the benefits of complementary cancer therapies. Sam, a New York City holistic practitioner, has decades of alternative medicine experience to share with his best friend, Mike, and their wives. He can talk knowledgeably about a variety of topics, ranging from how to prevent cancer, boost your immune system naturally, and avoid environmental toxins to what vitamins, nutrients, and hormones can best support cancer management. From a functional medicine perspective, Sam's position is clear. Complementary cancer treatments are just that-ways to complement traditional therapies such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Because they address the root cause of patients' problems, holistic approaches are a whole-body, medically sound way of managing this very insidious and painful disease. Could alternative cancer treatments work for you?
