A local naturopathic physician focuses on treating the root causes of health problems rather than just treating symptoms. A local naturopathic physician may use holistic treatments such as nutritional medicine, homeopathy and acupuncture to treat patients of all ages. If you’re managing a chronic health condition such as celiac disease or are recovering from a surgery or injury such as an ankle sprain or a concussion, you may benefit from working with a local naturopathic physician as well as a local physiotherapist. A local physiotherapist will use non-invasive techniques such as manual therapy, exercise and spinal adjustment to treat your condition.
Oncotherm is one of the most exciting frontiers of cancer treatment and research namely because it’s a very noninvasive form of complimentary cancer therapy, and because it doesn’t cause any additional toxicity to the treatment in addition to the toxicity from standard therapies. It also improves the outcomes that truly matter to the patient, namely it improves overall survival and it improves quality of life. From a patient experience perspective, Oncotherm is a very comfortable treatment.
Treatments can last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes depending on the area to be treated. And the number of treatments varies depending on what the treatment plan is overall for the patient in the short and long term.
So it depends on what types of other treatments might be integrated as part of the overall plan. It typically can vary anywhere from 12 to up to 24 treatments of Oncotherm. Temporary redness after treatment is quite common, and sometimes there can be some minor burns resembling a sunburn and that’s very easily managed and treatable.
