Scientific research shows that complementary therapies based on healthy dietary and lifestyle factors can optimise cancer treatment and positively influence both quality of life and prognoses. They are more than just complementary – they are an essential part of treatment.
Our basic book ‘Full steam ahead against cancer: What you can do to aid your own recovery’ familiarises patients with these methods, so that they themselves can make an active contribution to their recovery.
As practitioners, doctors are the right people to advise patients and guide them in the use of supportive therapies.
‘Full steam ahead against cancer: Addendum for doctors and care providers’ goes deeper into the impact of nutritional supplements on conventional treatment. It contains scientifically supported information on the mechanisms by which nutrients produce their effects and on potential interactions with chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or immunotherapy. It also offers practical guidelines for the use of supplements before, during and/or after treatment. With the knowledge in this book, you can work with your patients to optimise their treatment and increase their chances of recovery.
