Integrative Oncology

What Is Integrative Oncology?

Integrative oncology is the use of complementary therapies along with conventional cancer treatment methods. We know cancer and its treatments can have major effects on the patient and those who are close to the patient. Our integrative oncology program helps treat the mind, body and spirit.

The James M. Cox Foundation Center for Cancer Prevention and Integrative Oncology uses a system of health care that fosters a cooperative relationship among all those involved, with an emphasis on the need to look at the whole person. This integrated approach includes analysis of physical, nutritional, environmental, emotional, social, spiritual and lifestyle values.

Consultations with our team may be very helpful for patients getting cancer treatment, as well as cancer survivors. During your visit, you will undergo a full assessment and be educated on how to best incorporate integrative therapies (sometimes called integrated oncology therapies) into your conventional cancer care. 

Our integrative oncology services include:
