DO YOU KNOW

What is Integrative Oncology?

Integrative oncology is the use of complementary, non-clinical therapeutic approaches in addition to conventional treatment to obtain optimum health and well-being for cancer patients. It is an ever-evolving field that aims at increasing the efficacy of conventional medical therapies and surgical procedures, reducing pain and suffering, controlling patient distress and other symptoms, and promoting positive mental health in patients. It addresses an individual’s needs as a whole, in a multidimensional manner – body, mind, spirit, and relationships. 

It combines the best of both worlds – conventional treatment along with complementary non-clinical therapies – which result in reduced long-term side effects and at the same time improve the overall sense of well-being.

Today, more than ever before, millions of people are seeking an approach to health care that is more comprehensive, holistic, compassionate, and sensitive to their needs as people. This is especially true for those dealing with cancer. It is essential to note that integrative oncology does not aim to be an alternative to conventional medical and surgical therapies. It instead aims at complementing conventional therapies to provide the best, all-around care to the patients.

Our Integrative Approach

Nutrition Therapy

Using food science and functional medicine to address nutritional deficiencies & cancer malnutrition

The food we eat plays a crucial role in a cancer patient’s recovery and immunity. Conventional cancer treatments often deplete the body of essential nutrients, leading to malnutrition and increased mortality rates. An integrative approach includes appropriate diet plans with anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory foods, along with dietary supplements, to correct these deficiencies. This helps manage weight loss and side effects of treatment, while boosting immunity and improving overall prognosis.

Mental well-being

Any cancer therapy works best only when the patient is in a positive mindset.

Studies have revealed that stress and depression fuel tumor growth and progression, harming overall quality of life. These mental health issues impact immune response, angiogenesis, invasion, anoikis, and inflammation, compromising the effectiveness of even top-notch medical care. That’s why our programs include individualized mind-body protocols for yoga, meditation, mindfulness etc during, and after treatment. These practices reduce risk factors and enhance treatment outcomes.

Yoga & Meditation

Relieve symptoms, reduce distress, enhance resilience.

Integrative oncology embraces yoga and meditation as essential tools in cancer care. Incorporating these practices into a patient’s treatment plan yields many benefits, from easing physical symptoms like pain, fatigue, and nausea, to reducing emotional distress and bolstering the immune system. Moreover, patients report feeling empowered and in control, contributing to overall well-being. To support the journey of recovery and wellness, we offer comprehensive programs that include yoga therapy, functional nutrition, holistic lifestyle guidance, and personalized mind-body practices.

Reduce overall toxicity

Less toxicity aids post-cancer recovery and wellness

Clinical nutrition and detoxification can effectively support the body’s natural detox processes and promote overall health. Chemotherapy and radiation expose the body to chemicals that accumulate and can cause toxicity. Hence, detoxification is an essential aspect of post cancer care. Targeted nutritional interventions can support tissue repair and regeneration post-treatment. Antioxidants can neutralize harmful free radicals generated during treatment, reducing oxidative stress and cellular damage. Awaana’s Integrative Onco Nutrition Programs prioritize reducing treatment-related toxicity for both patients undergoing treatment and post treatment.

Prevent cancer recurrence

Live better and disease-free longer with integrative nutrition.

Our priority is to prevent cancer recurrence right from the start. Our Post Cancer Nutrition Program is tailor-made to minimize the risk of cancer recurrence using a combination of therapeutic nutrition and lifestyle management protocols. By identifying and addressing the root causes of cancer development and progression, our clinical nutrition and integrative oncology protocols can promote long-term cancer remission and overall well-being.

This comprehensive approach includes optimal nutrition, stress management, immune system support, and complementary therapies that support healthy cellular function and reduce inflammation. By creating an environment that is less conducive to cancer development and recurrence, our goal is to provide a comprehensive approach to post-treatment care as well.

The Need for Nutrition Therapy in Cancer 

Nutrition is a critical component of cancer treatment that is frequently neglected. For cancer patients, a good diet is particularly crucial. Cancer and its therapies may affect your body’s ability to accept and utilize nutrients from some foods. That’s why an oncology nutritionist is an essential part of a cancer patient’s care team. Here are some key points to consider:

Nutrition plays a vital role in cancer treatment

When undergoing cancer treatment, the body needs proper nutrition to help fight the disease and promote healing. However, the side effects of treatment, such as nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite, can make it difficult to eat enough of the right foods. Our team works with the patient to develop a personalized nutrition plan that addresses their specific needs and preferences. Our programs are designed to assist in the integration of nutrition goals for better clinical outcomes. We help patients solve difficulties related to eating and food choices, provide guidance on proper food selections, and educate patients, family members, and caretakers on dietary intake and nutritional supplements. 

Manage treatment side effects

Many cancer treatments can cause side effects that affect a patient’s ability to eat and maintain proper nutrition. For example, chemotherapy can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, while radiation therapy can cause mouth sores and difficulty swallowing. Your Cancer Coach and nutritionist will provide guidance on how to manage these side effects with specific foods, supplements and simple protocols that can help alleviate symptoms and maintain nutritional balance.

Improve treatment outcomes

Studies have shown that proper nutrition during cancer treatment can improve outcomes and reduce the risk of complications. Patients who receive nutrition therapy have been found to have higher energy levels, improved immune function, and a reduced risk of infection. When we create a nutrition therapy plan we also ensure that it integrates well into their overall treatment plan.

Help with survivorship

After treatment, many cancer survivors struggle with ongoing nutritional issues, such as changes in appetite, digestive problems, and weight management. A cancer nutritionist can provide ongoing support and guidance to help survivors maintain a healthy diet and manage any ongoing nutritional issues.

What is integrative and functional medicine?

Integrative medicine evaluates a patient as a whole – including physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being to heal and optimize health. It uses a combination of modern healthcare practices to diagnose and treat a person.

Functional medicine, also sometimes known as the "root cause" medicine embraces  the philosophy of Integrative medicine as described above but also employs a system-oriented and science backed medical approach that works to identify and understand the underlying or root causes of a disease.

The functional medicine model integrates our understanding of the human body, genetics, and external factors to identify and treat the underlying causes of disease. So rather than focusing on suppressing and managing symptoms, functional medicine looks deeper. There is an emphasis on the relationship between patient and practitioner as a partnership where every aspect of a patient’s medical history is considered in detail.
