Managing Radiation Therapy Side effects

We would like to open a bright new window to an approach that integrates complementary/ integrative medicine with conventional cancer care in a balanced and responsible way. 

This approach is directed to:
*People touched by cancer,their families, and friends


*I
nstitutions that wish to add integrative oncology service to their care


Cancer and Complementary/Integrative Medicine

Cancer is a word that relates to a great deal of emotions and despair. This illness is slowly becoming the leading cause of death in the US. The risk of developing cancer during lifetime is 1:2 in men and 1:3 in women. Current statistics suggest that conventional care achieves a cure in 65% of patients. But this process is not easy, it is accompanied with great deal of uncertainty and the treatments can have a major effect on patients and their families. As a result, a large number of patients are using complementary/integrative medicine as a support to their care. A guiding hand from a professional who understands the conventional view point, as well as the appropriate complementary/integrative medicine perspective, may be helpful in this journey. 

Our Mission
We strive to provide high quality educational services to patients touched by cancer, their families, friends and others affected by this illness. Our main goal is to improve quality of life and wellbeing, provide hope and reduce hopelessness, and possibly improve survival of patients touched by cancer. Our services do not come to replace conventional care but rather to enhance the benefit of this care.

The Process
This is an educational process that covers what we can do in addition to conventional care.   It covers multiple aspects of life including 
  
nutrition, supplements, physical activity, and complementary therapies. These approaches can be beneficial to patients and family members, while also addressing very important issues related to mind- body and spirit
.

The service is directed by Moshe Frenkel MD  a world renown expert in integrative oncology, clinical associate professor in University of Texas and founder of the integrative oncology clinic in MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.
