Free Access: Seminal Paper on Integrating Top 10 Dietary Supplements Into Cancer Care

ICT CoverGreen Med Info – by Glenn Sabin

A new paper titled Integrating Dietary Supplements Into Cancer Care, authored by the Clinical Practice Committee of the Society for Integrative Oncology, will be published in the October/November 2013 edition of SAGE’s Integrative Cancer Therapies, edited by Keith I Block, MD.

SAGE has graciously made the article available, accessible here for 30 days, starting September 1, 2013.  

A significant portion of cancer patients are now using dietary supplements. However, patients often don’t report their use of supplementation to their providers. Moreover, physicians have varying levels of understanding and experience with supplements and their use with oncology patients.

“Today’s informed patients truly value physicians who appreciate them as equal participants in making their healthcare choices.” ~Moshe Frenkel, MD

This important paper, written by leading researchers and clinicians with extensive experience using supplements, features the following 10 natural agents as having some of the strongest suggested benefits and evidence of effectiveness for cancer care:

1. Curcumin
2. Glutamine
3. Vitamin D
4. Maitake Mushrooms
5. Fish Oil
6. Green Tea
7. Milk Thistle
8. Astragalus
9. Melatonin
10. Probiotics

As the article states, “The information was constructed to provide an up-to-date base of knowledge, so that physicians and other healthcare providers would be aware of the supplements and be able to discuss realistic expectations and potential benefits and risks.” Read the entire paper here.

This article will be discussed during session conducted by lead author Dr. Moshe Frenkel during 10th International Conference of the Society for Integrative Oncology (SIO) in Vancouver.

An excerpt from the Conference website is as follows….

Multidisciplinary oncology practitioners from around the globe, including stakeholders from virtually every major cancer center in the US and Canada, will convene to discuss the translation and evolution of evidence-based integrative oncology in practice, the steadily growing science base, and its continued rise in popularity as patients demand a whole person approach to cancer care that addresses the mind, body and spirit.

  1. Who is lieing to who now. Herbal meds do work, it is just that they take a little longer to work. Study herbal medicine and you will be better off using herbal meds.

    1. Do some personal research and study Mark. It would be worth your time Ithink. They used to say that herbal med didn`t worlk because they take a lot longer to see results and people always want imediate results ya know. Herbal meds do work Mark, it is a real good study – it is kind of a way of life, and by the way by herbal I mean all herbals not just marijuana 🙂 🙂 . I know by first hand long term personal experience.

        1. Yes Hi there Mark. Ya know Mark that with my past life style I would have been dead 30 – 40 yr.s ago if it wasn`t for herbal med.s. I am getting old now, but atleast I am getting old gracefully, and I wouldnt`t have it any other way bro. 🙂 🙂 🙂

        2. Hi Mark
          If its cancer thats dug in and getting you, you must knowingly or unknowingly get your body fluids ph to normal or at first slightly above, and keep it there….cancer cells can not….proven can not grow or live in a normal body ph…..of course your stomach fluids will be acidic….so disregard that i am talking about blood, urine, saliva and there must be someone you can find who can assist in this it is not expensive nor is testing yourself expensive…..also there are inexpensive water machines which turn drinkable water to something like 9,0 ph which I believe would be helpful….ck it out….

    2. You’re very welcome. There’s additional information on the downloadable pdf, which is free only until September 30, so get it now.

      I find it very interesting how natural alternatives are now starting to be a driver in healthcare, as they should have been all along.

    1. Tumeric is a whole food or whole herb, whereas curcumin is an extracted component of tumeric. Curcumin is one of the hundreds of constituents found in the root of the tumeric plant.
