“What people call 'natural medicine' includes a tremendous range of forms and flavors. There is certainly no shortage of new 'things to do' for your cancer,” he says. “The bigger challenge is, just how much science is behind that new approach? I focus on helping patients identify proven, science-based natural medicine steps that are appropriate for their current needs."
