What Is Integrative Cancer Treatment?
We at the Block Center believe that your health care should focus on each of your unique needs. This is the philosophical foundation upon which all our medical treatment and complementary care regimens are based.
The care provided a Block Center patient embodies the highest level of conventional medicine and integrates those conventional protocols with advanced complementary therapies that address the physical, nutritional, psychosocial, and spiritual aspects of healing and recovery.
We use every potential strategy to strengthen your body with the goal of eradicating the cancer with which you’ve been diagnosed; and, then, we work with you to build your body and its defenses to help you protect against cancer in the future.
Not only do we integrate all these strategies into a single unique program of care for you, but we integrate you and your thoughts and wishes into the formulation of that treatment plan.
For us, integrative cancer care means:
"The best cancer care strives not only to increase tumor killing potential with the prudent use of anticancer agents like chemotherapy, but also to prevent damage to healthy tissue through nutritional intervention, mind-body therapies and the use of specific supplements as directed by our physicians and registered dietitians."
