Cancer Support

Functional medicine takes a comprehensive approach to cancer by identifying the underlying causes, then providing whole-body support to maximize the effectiveness of conventional treatments while reducing side effects and improving outcomes.

A whole-body approach is needed to combat a complex disease like cancer. Integrative medicine provides personalized care often missing with a conventional approach. 

Today, conventional and integrative practitioners alike recognize that patients benefit from both natural therapies, lifestyle-based therapies, and conventional treatment with fully informed choices that they can make every step of the way. When people combine lifestyle-based therapies with conventional treatment, they feel better, respond better, and their risk of recurrence lowers.

Explore common integrative therapies that may be beneficial during cancer treatment.


Acupuncture may be helpful in managing cancer-related pain & fatigue, supporting white blood cell count, and alleviating some side effects from radiation.

IV Therapy

IV hydration therapy delivers fluids, electrolytes, and nutrients directly into the bloodstream for instant results. IV therapy provides the minerals and vitamins necessary after chemotherapy and its side effects.

Chinese Medicine

Documented in ancient medical texts, Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) utilizes the principle of homeostasis and balance to promote healthy body function.

Defense & Repair

Conventional mainstays of cancer treatment may include surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and targeted therapy. Lifestyle-based interventions may enhance the efficacy of conventional treatments, and may help with side effects of these treatments, which can be severe in some cases. 

Supporting cancer patients with healthy changes to their nutrition, exercise, and mind-body wellness may help reduce side effects of cancer treatments and improve outcomes.

Integrative medicine helps to:

Reduce Side Effects

Prevent autoimmune-type related side effects, and mediate pain & discomfort.

Protect immune health & digestive function

Supplements to balance immune function and protect gut health & the microbiome.

Provide mental, emotional, and spiritual support

Mind-body therapies boost resilience & enhance treatment effectiveness.

Early Detection with Thermography

Functional medicine offers innovative diagnostic tools to help you stay proactive against cancer. Thermography is an FDA-approved procedure that can detect abnormal cell activity earlier than many other tests. Thermography is painless, non-invasive, and does not involve radiation.

More benefits of thermography

  • Detects abnormal cell activity
  • Early detection of illness & inflammation
  • Pain-free alternative to invasive diagnostics
  • Radiation-free cancer screening
  • Visibly detects health issues

Cancer Prevention with Functional Medicine

Up to 10% of all cancers are genetic, which means the majority of cancer cases may be a result of negative impacts of diet, environment, and lifestyle on the body. At CentreSpringMD we’ll help you identify the risk factors that may allow for abnormal cell growth.

An in-depth health history will examine dietary habits, stress level, activity levels, and underlying conditions such as autoimmune disease. Lab testing provides information about important biomarkers, including:

  • Chronic inflammation
  • Oxidative stress
  • Glucose metabolism, or insulin resistance
  • Various hormonal issues

Supporting Services Alongside Cancer Treatment

Therapeutic Massage

Massage therapy is a helpful tool for cancer patients experiencing side effects from treatment, provided there are no contraindications. Massage therapy cannot treat cancer, but it can help patients manage the side effects of treatment by providing:

  • Pain relief
  • Reduction in fatigue
  • Stress reduction
  • Reduction in anxiety/depression
  • Nausea relief
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved circulation

Relaxation and the comforting use of human touch likely play a role in providing relief for cancer treatment symptoms.


Acupuncture has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. Acupuncture releases neurotransmitters called endorphins and enkephalins, which scientists believe reduce the sensation of pain. Research also shows that inserting an acupuncture needle induces the production of cortisol, a hormone that helps control inflammation. Acupuncture may stimulate activity of other pain-relieving chemicals in the body as well.

Benefits of acupuncture for cancer support: 

  • Pain relief
  • Immune system support
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Improved mood

Our treatments are exquisitely designed to bring clinical relief while providing you the opportunity to relax and refresh your body and mind.
