  • Cancer is a metabolic process that develops within a complex biological environment. We will review the unique differences between healthy cells and cancer cells.

  • Strategies will be provided for modulating immune function, supporting overall health and managing the bioterrain to prevent the development, growth and spread of cancer cells with the targeted use of nutritional and botanical therapies.

  • Examples of an integrative multidisciplinary team approach will be presented to demonstrate that the inclusion of a functional medicine plan, in collaboration and coordination with conventional oncology treatment during all stages of cancer care, may protect and support normal healthy function and enhance quality of life for cancer patients and cancer survivors.
