About this course

Cancer care is an exciting and rapidly advanced field in natural medicine. To provide you with the latest in natural oncology we have developed a new webinar series with the leaders in this field sharing their most recent thoughts, protocols and research updates.

We have a vast range of remedies and techniques that we can apply in natural medicine and many of these are useful in oncology. In this series, we investigate some very interesting and potentially potent therapies. If you have discounted cancer care in your practice in the past, or put it in the too-hard basket, then this series is also for you.

Dr Janet Schloss opens with a thorough discussion on diets. There are many dietary options available and also many diet theories. Some of these don’t measure up and some are highly valuable. Janet shares the latest on the potential of specific foods, supplements and dietary modifications and how they affect tumour incidence and treatment.

Fever therapy has potent effects on immune activity and can enhance many treatments. Dr Gurdev Parmar’s first presentation for us delves into this novel and impressive therapy. There is substantial support for fever therapy for a variety of common conditions and it is especially useful in oncology.

Lise Alschuler returns with another oncology topic that investigates the nutritional opportunities to reduce the risk of specific tumours. She will discuss nutritional preventive options for several cancers including colorectal, breast, lung and prostate cancer.

Tina Kaczor will address the very interesting role of alkalinity in metabolic function with a specific focus on cancer. She will review pH physiology and how acidity can benefit the tumour. This area is receiving research attention and Tina will share some ‘buffer therapy’ options.

Dr Sasha Winters will cover a hot topic in oncology right now... off-label drugs which are well worth considering for many tumours. In many cases they are achieving outstanding results.
