Dr. Walter Lemmo ND, FABNO, states in the Spring 2010 Health Action Publication
that when patients are monitored after deciding to receive combination treatments,
he finds that they feel empowered about their decisions, respond better to all their
treatments and have fewer side effects than when just one treatment is used. Patients
often report that their medical oncologist has told them that they are doing great
and to "keep doing whatever they are doing".
Dr. Lemmo also mentions that in the United States, progressive hospitals are incorporating
Naturopathic doctors to work as a part of the oncology team. In Canada, integrated
cancer facilities are doing the same and leading the way. Naturopathic oncology
can safely be incorporated at any stage of a treatment program and can be utilized
by those wanting to rebuild health and support recovery.
