Integrative Oncology

Integrative oncology puts patients front and center. It draws from scientific evidence and uses mind-body practices, natural products and lifestyle changes alongside your regular cancer treatments.

The central focus of integrative oncology is to optimize your health, quality of life and clinical outcomes across the many stages of cancer care — and to support you in being an active participant in your cancer care.

Integrative oncology services make patients happier with their care and can improve sleep and mood, reduce fatigue, relieve pain, and manage both short- and long-term symptoms associated with cancer treatment.

What to Expect from Integrative Care

Our integrative oncology specialist can help you with:

  • Lifestyle modifications to optimize survivorship
  • Support symptoms management related to your anti-cancer therapy
  • Improved post-operative or post-chemotherapy nausea and vomiting
  • Supplement and herb consultations to avoid drug-herb interactions
  • Improving mood, quality of sleep and quality of life
  • Reducing cancer related fatigue
  • Preventing and treating chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy
  • Reducing the toxicity of anti-cancer treatments to organs such as the liver and kidneys

Viraj Master, MD, PhD, director of Winship's Integrative Oncology and Survivorship Program, describes how integrative oncology can optimize health and improve quality of life for patients with cancer during and after their treatment.

These services aim to reduce side effects, improve recovery and bolster your body before, during and after your cancer treatments.
