Cancer. The six lettered word that carries the weight of the earth. It's a leading cause of death in New Zealand and Australia, touching everyone in some way. For patients, the journey from the presentation of the first puzzling symptoms, through investigation, diagnosis and treatment is daunting and terrifying. Professionally qualified Naturopathic Practitioners have the opportunity to be partners in this journey, approaching the challenge with curiosity and humility. Within this environment, the right naturopath will work safely alongside powerful cancer treatments and unexpected surgeries. An understanding of the characteristics driving unchecked growth and the mechanisms used to address it, gives naturopaths the confidence to support patients through treatment.
As stressors rise, repair-growth and healing shut down.
At Holistic Health & Wellness we work effectively within our boundary of therapy for integrative oncology and update/inform our clients on the latest cancer research within natural medicines, lifestyle and nutritional sciences. We don’t make any claims of treating/curing cancer and our services are not meant in any way to replace any medical advice or treatment. Rather, we work with the individual (not the disease) and focus on the following:
- Help the body work as efficiently as possible
- Increase energy levels
- Improve immune system function (unless prescribed immunosuppressants)
- Help with recovery from medical interventions
- Decrease side effects of treatments
- Minimise pain
- Maximise quality of life
- Support coach and guide
Healing is not something we get from a prescription, a medication/supplement, a doctor or any health practitioner. Healing is what our bodies do naturally at every second of every day. Sometimes however, we simply need a little guidance in the right direction.
We are authentically here to help, not to make false claims or cause any further suffering. We understand which natural treatments are contraindicated to which medication, as this is our profession and area of expertise. Holistic Health & Wellness work confidently in safe prescribing for every cancer patient.
