Integrated Cancer Care
Have you recently been diagnosed with cancer?
Have you completed your conventional cancer treatment and want to know what you can do to support healing and prevent recurrence? Are you concerned about cancer due to family history or other personal risk factors and seek a preventive program?
Dr. Baron has a special interest in treating people with cancer and brings many years of experience to her practice. She is a member of the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians.
Her approach is always holistic, treating you as a whole person, while applying safe and effective natural cancer therapies to support you at whatever stage you are at in the cancer process. Using evidence-based natural therapies, the goal of care is to empower people, enhance quality of life, and improve survival. This model can be safely incorporated at any stage of cancer treatment.
The majority of her patients choose integrative cancer care services in combination with conventional treatment. Naturopathic medicine can alleviate side effects of chemo and radiation, while at the same time enhancing their efficacy. Natural therapies can speed healing after surgery and reduce the risk of infection and other complications.
