Life Over Cancer: A New Model of Integrative Cancer Treatment

Keith I.

Issues to be discussed include nutrition during and after treatment, supplements, and key strategies to address the significant psychological issues cancer patients often face that influence quality of life. Patients are provided with a systematic, research-based plan for developing the nutritional, physical and emotional vitality they need to meet the demands of treatment and recovery.
