What would you recommend?

Pam is a 48-year-old nurse who served in Iraq during Desert Storm. She was diagnosed with breast cancer that metastasized to her lymph nodes. Her oncologist explained that treatment plan includes chemotherapy and radiation, and she is concerned about the long-term and short-term side effects. As a single mom, she is also worried about what will happen to her teenage sons. She wants to know how she can continue to fulfill her duty as a mother and nurse while she goes through treatment.

What would you tell Pam and how would you implement a Whole Health approach to care?

Our Cancer Care overview provides additional information about Pam and explains how to incorporate dietary supplements, yoga, meditation, acupuncture, and other integrative and complementary practices to empower patients like Pam and their families. We also offer Whole Health tools on specific topics related to cancer care below.
