Integrative cancer care focuses on keeping your immune system strong.

Although quality of life is one of the most important aspects of cancer care, it often can get lost in the shuffle as patients, family and health care professionals focus on eradicating the cancer.

But maintaining a good quality of life throughout treatment can actually help you achieve that goal. Integrative cancer care puts its focus on keeping your immune system strong throughout the entire process, from diagnosis and treatment decisions to restoration of immune function and health after completion of standard treatments.

Learn more about how integrative cancer support can help cancer patients throughout the treatment process at the free talk “How Integrative Cancer Care Improves Quality of Life” from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 8, at Bastyr Center for Natural Health.

In addition to helping you cope with difficult side effects, chronic pain, fatigue and more, integrative cancer care also aims to help you reduce the risk of cancer recurrence.
