Integrative Cancer Therapy in Austin, TX

Integrative Cancer Therapy in Austin, TX

The purpose of integrative cancer therapy is to support you during every stage of your treatment and to provide you with emotional and physical strength to cope with your symptoms. If you need help dealing with cancer, reach out to one of our doctors.

Cancer treatments can save your life, but they also take a toll on your physical and emotional well-being. The focus of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiology is to remove tumors and prevent their return. Because of this, the other aspects of healing tend to be overlooked.

Integrating Physical Fitness

Exercise is an important part of maintaining your health at any point in your life, but it takes on a new meaning during cancer treatment. Building your endurance can help you cope with the cancer symptoms, along with the side effects of chemotherapy and other treatments designed to remove it.

Your doctor may help you manage stress with exercises that strengthen the link between mind and body. Some of these styles and techniques include:

  • Yoga
  • Tai chi
  • The Lebed Method

These use a blend of gentle and socially engaging exercises to stimulate the flow of lymphatic fluid and help flush out toxins.

Making Nutrition Easy

Balanced nutrition is crucial to a well-designed healing plan. In addition to improving your overall health, there are a number foods and supplements your doctor may recommend to boost the strength of your immune system.

Your doctor may help you develop a meal plan that emphasizes the consumption of:

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Whole grains
  • Nuts
  • Fish

Many of which are rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

Certain dietary supplements not only bolster your immune system, but also help prevent the recurrence of cancer by eliminating DNA-damaging free radicals from your system.

Uniting the Mind and Body

Maintaining your mental and emotional health is every bit as vital as physical fitness.

Some of the techniques doctors use for helping a patient manage their stress and anxieties are:

  • Meditation
  • Massage therapy
  • Acupuncture

Treatment plans also incorporate the creative arts, including activities such as:

  • Playing music
  • Painting
  • Writing
  • Making jewelry

From acupuncture's tension-liberating needles to the simple rhythm of music, these can be a powerful tool in sorting through the wide range of emotions that cancer invokes.
