Our medical team cares for the entire person during prostate cancer treatment. This means that nutritional and alternative treatment often plays a valuable role in our cancer care. These methods can help alleviate symptoms during the healing process or when more aggressive efforts are impractical.
For your immune system to fight cancer at its best, it needs proper nutrients. We work with you to monitor your diet and recommend the right foods and supplements to boost your immune response. Dietary adjustments can also help manage treatment side effects, such as fatigue from radiation therapy.
Alternative therapy emphasizes health and wellbeing and is complimentary to other treatment options. In addition to dietary and nutritional adjustments, alternative techniques include stress management, exercise and physical therapy, chiropractic care, herbal supplements, prescription medication and much more.
Your Advanced Urology Institute physician will help you select the complimentary or alternative care that is right for you.
