What is Adjunctive Oncology Care?
Adjunctive oncology care is designed to be used alongside conventional treatments such as surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
Research shows that many people going through cancer treatments are often taking herbal medicine and nutritional supplements but not telling their oncologist or receiving qualified advice about what is safe.
Just because a medicine might be ‘natural’ it doesn’t mean that it is inherently safe or suitable for your situation. It is important to have a comprehensive assessment of what is beneficial and not going to interfere with your conventional treatments.
At ReMed, we recognise that conventional treatment should be the primary approach to treating cancer but that adjunctive care can play an important role in supporting quality of life during treatment.
