Integrative Oncology is a developing field, in which highly skilled practitioners address patient demand for cancer care by providing evidenced-based complementary and alternative medicine, (EBCAM). The NIH reports that complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) use by oncology patients is at 80%, with less than 50% reporting their use to their physician. It is essential that we find a way to offer safe, evidence-based, cost effective, natural medicine to our patients.
One of the major concerns about CAM has been the lack of data substantiating its benefits. The tide has shifted, and there are now many substantiated reports. In providing cancer care for his patients, Dr. Moses Goldberg develops a protocol for each patient, based on scientific research articles, clinical-peer review journals, and clinical experience of natural therapies to help throughout their conventional treatment.
