A Naturopath’s stance on cancer. Possible naturopathic treatments to support chemotherapy

Naturopathy has the ability to pull back the progression of a cancer and prolong one’s life expectancy

A diagnosis of cancer brings with it profound shock, fear, sadness, sometimes denial, and many other strong emotions. It is common for people to try and gain some control over their newly reconfigured lives by investigating treatments themselves.

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a form of cancer that starts in the bone marrow and affects the blood. And while a diagnosis of this disease is shocking, it’s important to remember that many people will not actually require treatment. In diagnosis, it is critical that a person takes the advice of their medical professional or a naturopath.

Natural treatments for cancer should not be seen as a cure, but as a way of addressing the reason why the body developed cancer. Natural health products can also insist in terminally ill people, to insist in helping the body through the horror of chemotherapy.

A diagnosis may come from natural therapies or not. The ability to diagnose is not the issue. The ability to pull back the cancer in time is the crucial question. The treatment by a natural therapist is very feasible, as more often than not, there is no treatment taken by western medicine at a terminally ill stage. High dose antioxidants can support the body to heal and the most important naturopathic treatment for cancer is to alkalize the body with natural products and nutritional supplementation in foods.
