Oncology It is the branch of medicine that deals with cancer from all its aspects such as diagnosis, treatment, and supportive care. Naturopathic care is an emerging new practice that supports medical treatment of cancer.
Scope of practice
In oncology, many practitioners support cancer patients with different tools and medical skill. A medical oncologist is specialized in the treatment of cancer using systemic therapies such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy and tumour vaccines. A radiation oncologist uses high frequency and energy electromagnetic radiation for cancer treatment. A surgical oncologist treats cancer by surgical resection. A naturopathic doctor is able to support the different treatments a cancer patient may be receiving through the use of essential nutrients, herbals, and intravenous therapies. These interventions work in harmony with other systemic therapies or local radiation therapy. A palliative care physician uses his/her experience to mitigate the medical problems that cancer patient may develop.
