Basic Oncology, Early Warning Signs, and Regional Review from Head to Toe. Addressing Conventional vs. Integrative Approaches
By: SideCar, LLC

Course Description

Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide. Genes are blamed for cancer development and play an integral part as a risk factor for the evolution of cancer from a benign lesion to a malignant one. However, environmental factors affect the epigenetics of those genes and can meddle in the outcome of the disease. The role of functional medicine is to identify the relationship between genetic predisposition, environmental risk factors, and disease development to treat the root cause of the disease, aiming at cancer prevention or prevention of its recurrence after initial treatment. Conventional cancer treatments are crucial to controlling cancer, but they also have to be tailored for each patient where no chemotherapy fits all, even if they have the same diagnosis. That’s when integrative oncology comes to help the patient choose what’s best for his healthcare while ameliorating the side effects of conventional treatment and augmenting its effect at the same time.
