Complementary cancer care alongside conventional treatment

Many people living with cancer seek complementary support alongside their conventional treatments. Why? Complementary therapies can significantly improve a patient’s quality of life by decreasing toxicity and side effects, strengthening the immune system, and supporting the body’s healing ability. We work with our patients and where possible collaborate with their oncologists, surgeons, and family doctors to develop therapeutic programs that help sustain wellness during and after treatment.

We provide whole person cancer care

The OICC is a regional centre of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. We welcome patients at any stage of cancer and those wishing to prevent cancer or its recurrence. We believe in treating the whole person – the mind, body, and spirit – and ultimately, we take into account the environment in which people live.

Our naturopathic doctors have specialized training in integrative cancer care. They guide and monitor each patient through the right complementary therapies at the right time. Therapies may include naturopathic medicine, clinical nutrition, acupuncture, massage, reflexology, physiotherapy, exercise, yoga, conscious living coaching, occupational therapy and counseling.
