Asian Medicine - Asian medicine is based on balancing the flow of Chi (energy) through the meridian pathways that includes the use of acupuncture and Oriental herbs.
Lifestyle Counselling - Physical, emotional, nutritional & environmental factors affect overall health. NDs help in making effective lifestyle choices.
Intravenous (IV) Therapy - Although this does not replace optimal lifestyle choices, exercise, and diet, IV therapy delivers vitamins and minerals in concentrations that are not achievable via oral means. This becomes even more important for those who may have chronic digestive concerns or malabsorbtion issues. IV drips of high amounts of Vitamin C (25-50g) are an excellent supportive measure for those undergoing chemo/radiation for the treatment of cancer.
Emerging research has shown that intravenous vitamin C actually helps to enhance the effects of chemo while minimizing its side effects. It can be used between chemo treatments to maximize the process of treating cancer successfully!
