Cancer touches us all, whether directly or indirectly. Based on current incidence rates, 39% of Canadian women and 44% of Canadian men will develop cancer during their lifetime. In an effort to stay well or to manage chronic diseases such as cancer, more and more Canadians are exploring a wide range of natural, complementary and alternative therapies. What is known about the efficacy of these products and therapies, and their potential role in the prevention and management of cancer?
Find out at an upcoming educational event for the public and health professionals that explores the potential of evidence-based natural therapies.
Hosted by The Holistic Health Research Foundation of Canada, the two-day lecture series brings together an impressive roster of leading physicians, specialists, researchers, naturopaths and other complementary practitioners to discuss and debate these essential questions across the entire continuum of cancer care, from prevention and preventing cancer recurrence, to treatment, management and palliative care.
