What are Supplements & Nutraceuticals?
Nutraceuticals are dietary supplements that combine nutrition with medicine. The word itself is a combination of these two terms: nutrition and pharmaceutical. These dietary supplements provide the health and medical benefits found in certain foods.
Some of the most common categories of nutraceuticals include:
- Soluble fiber
- Omega acids
- Plant oils
Not all nutraceuticals have cancer-inhibiting properties. It's crucial to speak to a integrative cancer therapy doctor before beginning any nutraceutical regimen.
How do Supplements & Nutraceuticals Treat Cancer?
Integrative cancer therapy utilizes a special blend of nutraceuticals (only those derived from natural sources) to inhibit cancer growth. Some of the most common integrative cancer therapy nutraceuticals include:
- Avemar (fermented wheat germ extract)
- Trametes versicolor (Turkey Tail)
- Vitamin D3
- EGCG (from green tea extract)
This list represents just a small subset of the dietary supplements that may be used as a part of integrative cancer protocol. Integrative cancer therapy is personalized to each individual patient, so no two patients will receive the exact same nutraceuticals.
In order to best receive the cancer-fighting properties of these nutraceuticals, they must be delivered in large doses. Nutraceuticals and supplements cannot inhibit cancer growth alone; as a part of an integrative cancer therapy treatment plan they will be combined with other treatments such as:
- Low-dose metronomic chemotherapy
- pH manipulation therapy
- Diet and nutrition
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
- IV therapy
- Pharmaceutical drugs (used in an “off-label” fashion)
