Medical Herbal Strategies for Integrative Cancer Therapies
Cancer is not a single disease. It is a group of many diseases all characterized by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. For cancer to occur it takes several mutations to happen to a single cell before it can become a cancer cell. In this class we will study the aberrant cell and how individual herbal therapies can target these cells. We will also discuss integrative strategies that include herbal formulas to treat as well as reduce side effects of conventional chemotherapy and radiation therapeutics currently used in cancer treatment. This class is a very fast, advanced level class where we will not only understand the underlying causes of the development of cancer, genetics and epigenetics but also therapeutic strategies at each level. The class will include cancer fighter diet strategies, herbal therapeutic and integrative strategies as well as survivorship and long term prevention strategies for the cancer fighter.
