Getting to the Root of the Problem

Integrative Oncology uses The Metabolic Approach to treating cancer, by treating the root cause and symptoms of each person’s unique cancer process. 

Focusing on the WHY

Using the Metabolic Approach we target the altered metabolic pathways exhibited by cancer cells. Unlike traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation, which primarily focuses on killing rapidly dividing cells, the metabolic approach aims to exploit the unique metabolic vulnerabilities of cancer cells while sparing healthy cells. 

HOW does it work?

The metabolic approach to treating cancer leverages the distinctive metabolic characteristics of cancer cells to develop personalized, targeted therapies. By exploiting the metabolic vulnerabilities exhibited by tumors, this approach holds promise for more effective and less toxic treatments, ultimately contributing to the evolution of cancer care.

  • Metabolic Reprogramming of Cancer Cells
  • Targeting Metabolic Vulnerabilities
  • Personalized Medicine
  • Combination Therapies

Key Benefits

The metabolic approach to treating cancer offers benefits such as precision targeting, reduced toxicity, personalized treatment plans, synergy with other therapies, resistance prevention, diverse therapeutic targets, and potential for early detection. While the field is still evolving, these advantages highlight the potential of the metabolic approach to revolutionize cancer treatment and improve patient care.

Frequently asked questions

What does metabolic flexibility mean?2024-06-13T18:04:16-05:00

Metabolic flexibility refers to the ability of the body to switch from one fuel to another depending on fuel availability  and the demands of energy throughout the day.  A healthy, flexible metabolism can switch between carbohydrates to proteins to fats easily as needed. The body seems to lose this ability as we get sicker and sicker. Impaired metabolic flexibility is associated with metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, liver disease, brain disorders and cancer. Some recommendations for improving and restoring metabolic flexibility are daily exercise, fasting, time restricted eating and ketosis.

 

Can integrative oncology help manage treatment-related side effects?2023-12-01T10:17:09-06:00

Yes, many complementary therapies used in integrative oncology can help manage treatment-related side effects such as pain, nausea, fatigue, anxiety, and depression.

Can integrative oncology treat cancer itself?2023-12-01T10:20:08-06:00

Integrative oncology means that there is an integration, or, a combination of both alternative therapies and conventional treatment being implemented in the overall management of the cancer. Over 70% of people who are diagnosed with cancer choose some form of integrative approach.
