Textbook of Naturopathic Oncology

“A masterpiece, a long-awaited comprehensive textbook which will establish its’ importance in the years to come. The current textbook as well as its future editions will influence generations, and guide patients through the ever-growing field of integrative cancer diagnosis and treatment for truly individualized care.”

Ralf Kleef, MD, Immunotherapy & Integrative Oncology, Vienna, Austria

I am extremely proud to be sharing with you today the upcoming publication of my book, the Textbook of Naturopathic Oncology: A Desktop Guide of Integrative Cancer Care. I started writing this book because I have long needed a “go to” desktop reference for the cancer focused work that I do every day in my practice. Despite there being good cancer care references out there, I couldn’t find a singular resource that pulled together all of the naturopathic and integrative treatments available and analyzed their efficacy against the current backdrop of best standard of care. So, I decided to create one. I have now been working on this textbook for the past five and half years. My goal was also to create a comprehensive reference text for naturopathic and integrative cancer care physicians worldwide, a tome that pulls from the most up to date studies in existence and presents the findings in a clear, concise, and organized manner. I am eager to share with you this canon, this current and complete synthesis of the knowledge of our profession. I sincerely hope that this textbook serves to further elevate our treatment protocols. Lastly and perhaps most importantly, I wanted to create an information hub to educate our beloved patients. I am constantly reminded about their thirst for information for both how to best manage their symptoms, and how best to treat their cancers, beyond standard of care. I am certain this text will further empower them to increasingly become more active participants in their own care.
