Chronic Fatigue Q & A

What is cancer therapy?

Cancer therapy is a service provided by the Live Well Wellness Center team to help support patients receiving traditional cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation therapy. It can also be valuable for those who've already undergone their treatment and are recuperating.

Cancer therapy combines conventional and naturopathic medicine to ensure you receive more personalized care and benefit from better treatment outcomes. This integrated approach is one with which the Live Well Wellness Center team has had great success.

They work with you to create a suitable treatment plan that helps fight cancer and improves your quality of life.

Why would I need cancer therapy?

You might benefit from cancer therapy if you're undergoing treatment for cancer or are in the recovery stages. Cancer and its conventional treatment can cause a variety of problems, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Weight loss
  • Decreased appetite
  • Constipation and/or diarrhea
  • Muscle weakness
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Increased likelihood of infection
  • Bruising and bleeding easily
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Decreased libido
  • Depression and anxiety

Cancer therapy can ease these symptoms and improve your overall health so you're better able to get over your illness.

What treatments are used in cancer therapy?

Some of the treatments Live Well Wellness Center offers as part of its integrative cancer therapy programs include:

IV (intravenous) therapies

IV therapy involves having micronutrients and medicines delivered directly into your bloodstream through a catheter (small, flexible pipe) inserted in an arm vein. Live Well Wellness Center offers a range of therapies, including high-dose vitamin C.

Studies show that receiving IV vitamin C before and after chemotherapy reduces the severity of symptoms like fatigue, insomnia, nausea, pain, and loss of appetite.

Hydrogen peroxide treatments

Low levels of hydrogen peroxide given intravenously help to fight infections and destroy cancer cells.

Ozone therapy

Ozone therapy is a way of boosting oxygen levels in your blood. Live Well Wellness Center uses autohemotherapy, taking a small amount of your blood, infusing it with ozone, and returning it to your body intravenously.

Lifestyle counseling

Healthy lifestyle habits are never more important than when you're fighting cancer. The Live Well Wellness Center team helps optimize your immune system by providing dietary advice and support with healthy living options.

XYMOGEN® supplements

XYMOGEN produces physician-formulated nutritional supplements designed for specific purposes, including cancer therapy.

These therapies are all effective ways of combating cancer. They improve the outcomes from chemotherapy and radiation therapy, reduce symptoms that conventional cancer treatments can cause, and enhance your quality of life.
