Getting Well Again

Conventional and Natural Therapies can work powerfully when used together wisely.

During 40 yrs of cancer service, Grace Gawler, found evidence-based natural therapies can dramatically increase the effectiveness of cancer treatment as well as reducing side effects.

Oncologists noted that Grace’s patients ‘sailed’ through chemo & radiation with reduced side effects & greater efficacy of the treatment.

With so many natural therapies on the internet, the challenge is not in finding more options, but in choosing the best options & using them correctly. Most alternative regimes are general and not personalized. E.G. Stating – ‘We should all be raw vegans’ may not be applicable to you, in your current state, with your disease, at your age etc.

Nutrition and medicine must be personalised.

For minor illnesses naturopathy may be effective when used alone.
However when a serious illness such as cancer is involved naturopathy is best as an adjunct to conventional medicine. When the naturopath works closely in collaboration with the patient’s doctors and specialists best outcomes can be achieved – there is a synthesis between treatments. Sadly this situation is all too rare in Australia. We advise cancer patients that their naturopath must collaborate with the patient’s oncology team. Although this is crucial – it rqarely happens!

Minimising risks of Recurrence & Extending Remission

There are many ways to reduce risks of recurrence. Personalized laboratory tests can identify how well the body is able to regulate cancer cell growth. Key systems include inflammation, immune function, insulin sensitivity, hormonal balance, digestion, and detoxification.
Imbalances that lab tests detect can be corrected with natural therapies, creating an optimal environment in the body to fight cancer and restore good health.

Survival Tips:
  1. If your naturopath will not communicate and collaborate with your doctors and oncologists – beware
  2. If your naturopath does not understand the mechanisms of cancer – beware
  3. If your naturopath is not familiar with herb-drug interactions – beware
