Integrative Oncology: Using Evidence-Informed Medicine to Improve Patient Outcomes and Quality of Life – Cancer Therapy Advisor

Canceris among the leading causes of death worldwide. New cancer cases per year mayrise to 23.6 million by 2030.1 Yet, The American Institute forCancer Research (AICR) estimates that at least half of cancer cases in the UScould be prevented by lifestyle changes.2

According to the results of a survey that waspublished in JNCI Monographs, integrative oncology can be defined as a patient-centered,evidence-informed field of cancer care that utilizes mind and body practices,natural products, and/or lifestyle modifications from different traditionsalongside conventional cancer treatments,including chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and immunotherapy. 3

Thenomenclature could be problematic, as the term integrative is often confusedwith alternative or complementary, despite the fact that these terms are notinterchangeable. Alternative practices not derived from Western medicine are modalitiesused in lieu of any conventionaltreatments. Complementary medicine is the use of supportive practicesas interventional add-ons to conventional treatment. Integrative care, on theother hand a whole-systems approach judiciously and strategically mergesmainstream and complementary interventions.

Approximately30% to 50% of cancer patients use complementary and integrative medicine, in largepart to mitigate symptoms and enhancequality of life.3 Although the use of alternative medicine alone, inplace of conventional treatment, has been shown to shorten survival and theaddition of medicine considered complementary to conventional therapy doesnot appear to influence mortality rate compared with conventional treatmentalone patient-reported measures may tell researchers about quality of lifeand more holistic aspects of care.

Expertsadvise patients exercise caution when considering the use of antioxidant andother dietary supplements prior to or during chemotherapy, as some of these productscause drug-drug interactions and have the potential to negatively affectsurvival or increase the risk of recurrence.4

Thatsaid, interventions such as acupuncture, massage, meditation, yoga, tai chi, orqi gong, for example, are procedures that could increase patient quality oflife and improve physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being. In turn,these improvements have the potential to positively influence clinical outcomes.

‘I See That as Sacred Ground’: Canby Clinic Has Grown through Patient-Centered Approach to Health Care – Canby Now Podcast

This article originally appeared in the December 2019 edition of Canby Living Magazine.

Smoking piles of incense and clusters of dried herbs hanging from the ceiling. Wood shelves lined with tiny bottles of essential oils and glass jars full of acupuncture needles.

Thick, dark tapestries, ancient scrolls of mysterious knowledge and bead curtains. Lots and lots of bead curtains.

These are some of the misconceived images Dr. Erin Walker, of the Canby Clinic, said the term naturopathic medicine may bring to mind.

Andno. Its not like that. (Sorry to disappoint.)

In the state of Oregon, naturopathic physicians are primary care providers, Dr. Walker explained. So, Im licensed and practice as a primary care provider.

Dr. Walker said naturopathic doctors, or NDs, share a set of foundational tenets similar to those of traditional medicine, including the familiar preset First, do no harm. In naturopathic terms, this also tends to mean favoring the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies.

But they also follow some principals that are more unique to naturopathic medicine, including docere, or doctor as teacher.

That means that naturopathic physicians take time to educate patients on their basic physiology and biochemistry, explaining why they have the symptoms that they have, how the body heals, what a healing therapy is vs. a palliative therapy, and so on, she said. So, theres a lot of instruction and teaching that I do with patients, helping them get to know their bodies.

She said another core principle of naturopathic medicine is to identify and treat the root causes of patients ailments, rather than focusing on the symptoms.

Were very much detectives, she said. We like to find the cause of the disease or disease state. We do a lot of investigating to find the cause, when we can.

Dr. Walker first discovered natural medicine while working with her aunt, a chiropractor in Minnesota. She says she knew instantly that natural medicine was her calling.

She moved to Portland to attend the National College of Natural Medicine, earning her doctorate in 2007. She completed her residency at Salem Naturopathic Clinic in 2009.

The following year, she founded the Canby Clinic with her husband, Brant. She had been offered a permanent position with the Salem clinic following her residency, but she was interested in something closer to home, and a more community-centered approach to care.

A bit of a callback to the trusted country doctor, making house calls and knowing the whole family by name.

That therapeutic relationship between doctor and patient, I see that as sacred ground, she said. In the modern medical landscape, the way things are now, were really losing that in many communities.

Word of mouth spread, and it is wont to do in small towns, and the Canby Clinic soon grew. Today, its a full-time and full-service clinic serving many patients with a variety of conditions, and hosting multiple physicians.

In addition to Dr. Walker, who still practices at the clinics and serves as its medical director, one of the clinics primary providers is Dr. Harris Waters, a traditionally trained practitioner with a doctorate in medicine from UCLA.

Dr. Waters was in practice for 30 years as a general and vascular surgeon when he began to notice a disturbing trend: the overall health of his patients was worsening. Conventional medicine, to him, had become sick care, rather than health care, more about managing symptoms than truly achieving wellness.

Dr. Waters began investigating complementary, integrative medicine, incorporating a wellness/health care philosophy into his own life and his patients liveswith amazing results.

Ultimately, he received a Master of Science in nutritional and metabolic medicine from the University of South Florida School of Medicine, and also completed a fellowship in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. He joined the team at the Canby Clinic in 2017.

As the Canby Clinic looks forward to celebrating its 10th anniversary in June, they continue to adapt to serve their patients as best they can in an ever-changing medical and economic environment.

One of the biggest developments is their pivot to a membership-based, non-insurance practice, a model that has been successfully adopted by medical clinics across the United States, but which the Canby Clinic was the first to offer in Oregon.

For more information, check out the Canby Clinic online at canbyclinic.com, or call them at 503-266-7443. Or, hear more from Dr. Walker on Episode 138 of the Canby Now Podcast: Natural.

16 Ways To Practice Self-Care That Cost Next To Nothing – HuffPost

In the age of Instagram, self-care has become synonymous with indulgences like massages, facials, fancy products, boutique workout classes and lavish vacations.

That all sounds great if you have tons of disposable income. But for most of us, spending serious cash on self-care just isnt realistic.

The whole concept of self-care has really strayed from the original intent, and become a meme unto itself, said Kathleen Dahlen deVos, a psychotherapist in San Francisco. When I talk with my clients about self-care, rarely am I encouraging practices and habits that cost money. In fact, spending excessive money or funds we dont have In the name of self-care can actually be distressing, destructive and work against our mental and emotional wellbeing.

We asked experts in the wellness space to share some of the best ways to practice self-care that are basically free. Heres what they told us:

1. Spend some time outside.

Take a walk around the block, sit in the grass, hike a local trail or just let the sun shine on your face for a few minutes.

No matter where you live, you likely have access to an outside space, said Tiffany Lester, an integrative medicine doctor in San Francisco. If its not in your neighborhood, think of a close space you can get to within 10 to 30 minutes. Getting outside and away from our devices calms our nervous system from the negative effects of everyday stressors.

2. Clean and organize your living space.

When your apartment or office is a mess, it can take a toll on your mental state, making you feel more stressed, anxious and overwhelmed.

For some, a messy or disorganized space can activate their nervous systems and impact mental health wellness, said therapist Jesse Kahn, director of The Gender & Sexuality Therapy Center in New York. If thats you, taking time to clean up your space can be an act of self-care and self-love, and may feel healing rather than like a chore you dont want to do.

3. Reduce the amount of time you spend on social media.

Mindlessly scrolling through your social media feeds for hours on end is not only a time suck, but is also linked to lower self-esteem, sleep issues and an increased fear of missing out, or FOMO.

Social media and the internet is a great resource to connect, cultivate support and community, but it can also be a place of overconsumption, distraction, and numbing out to what we truly may need in our lives, said McKel Hill Kooienga, a registered dietitian in Nashville, Tennessee, and founder of the site Nutrition Stripped.

The iPhones Screen Time feature, Androids Digital Wellbeing tools or apps like Moment can monitor your social media usage and help you cut back. Other tricks that may be useful include disabling certain push notifications, switching to grayscale mode or hiding your most enticing apps in a folder thats not on your home screen.

4. Do some journaling.

All you need is a pen and some paper to get started. Journaling can be a therapeutic practice that helps you understand thought patterns, work through difficult emotions, reflect on certain events or cultivate more gratitude in your everyday life.

Sometimes I find it just as helpful as therapy and Im very pro-therapy; Im studying to be a therapist, said Lauren Donelson, a writer and yoga teacher based in Seattle. Journaling helps us externalize whats going on inside our heads, and it helps us to look at our thoughts more objectively.

5. Get better sleep.

Making an effort to get the recommended seven to nine hours of quality shuteye can make a huge difference when it comes to your overall wellbeing. Getting a good nights sleep on a consistent basis offers benefits such as better immune function, improved mood and better performance at work. (If you need some tips on how to make it happen, weve got you covered.)

Maybe the self-care practice here is getting a certain number of hours a night, not exceeding a certain number of hours, getting to sleep by a certain time so youre able to wake up by a certain time or creating a ritual to help you calm your body, relax and go to sleep, Kahn said.

6. Meditate.

Practicing meditation is one of the best ways to restore and reconnect with our mind and body, said Tamara Levitt, a Toronto-based meditation instructor and head of mindfulness at Calm.

As (writer) Anne Lamott said: Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, Lamott said. There is immense value in giving ourselves time and space to shift from doing mode to being mode. Meditation allows us to reconnect with the needs of our mind and body.

If you prefer guided meditations, you can check out the free version of apps like Headspace or Calm, or find videos on YouTube. And, of course, meditating in silence is another great option that doesnt cost a dime.

7. Check in with yourself.

At least once a day, if not more, take some time to check in with yourself. Pause to assess how hungry or full you are, any emotions you may be feeling or scan your body for areas of tightness.

Simply asking yourself the question, How am I doing right now? is a gentle reminder to take care of yourself, Hill Kooienga said.

8. Move your body.

It might be dancing in your bedroom to a fire playlist, doing squats in your living room or participating in a community yoga class (which is generally less costly than a boutique fitness class).

However, if that still doesnt fit in your budget, there are many free online yoga videos on YouTube, Kahn said. One of my favorites is Yoga With Adriene.

9. Connect with loved ones offline.

Texting and email are convenient forms of communication, but they dont satisfy our deep need for connection in the way more personal interactions do.

Call a friend, take a walk with a colleague or cook dinner with a family member, Dahlen deVos said. Connecting with others we care for helps to shift us out of our heads, regulates our nervous systems and elevates our moods.

10. Invest time in a hobby.

The demands of work, family and other obligations take up most of our time and energy, leaving barely any room in our schedules for activities we truly enjoy. But carving out some time for our hobbies even when we have a lot on our plate matters.

Most of us are too busy to make time for activities that are joy-filled and feel nurturing, Levitt said. Find a time each week to shut off your electronics, and engage in a hobby that rejuvenates your spirit; play music, write in a journal, take a cooking class. While electronics deplete us, our favorite activities nourish us.

11. Take some deep breaths.

During high-stress periods, we may go hours or even a whole day without taking a full, grounding breath if were not intentional about it.

I like to take a few deep breaths in the morning and also throughout the day because it helps me to recenter and connect more with the present moment, said Jessica Jones, a San Francisco-based registered dietitian and co-founder of Food Heaven. One strategy that I use to remind myself to do this is to take three deep breaths every time I go to the bathroom and wash my hands. Its easy, free and makes a huge difference in my daily stress levels.

12. Volunteer your time with an organization you care about.

Choose your cause, whatever it may be, and then figure out a way you can pitch in.

Engaging in altruistic acts and seeing our actions make a direct and positive impact in the lives of others is a surefire way to shift your mood and feel part of something bigger than yourself, Dahlen deVos said. This can help put our problems in context, or at least give us a break from stressors without numbing out.

13. Eat more vegetables.

Malte Mueller via Getty Images

Aim to put more of your grocery budget toward veggies and less towards ultra-processed snack foods. Then, to up your intake, cut up some vegetables at the beginning of the week and store them in your fridge that way you can easily grab them when you need a snack or throw in a handful or two to spruce up your meals.

Most of us are not consuming near enough whole foods let alone vegetables, which keep us nice and full because of prolonged satiety from the fiber, Hill Kooienga said. Vegetables nourish our physical bodies on a cellular level with fiber, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants, and they can taste really delicious too.

14. Cuddle with someone you love.

Snuggle up next to your partner, your child or even your BFF.

Cuddling releases oxytocin, a feel good hormone, that also helps with reducing stress, said Lynsie Seely, a marriage and family therapist in San Francisco.

Pets make great cuddle buddies, too. Plus, spending time with our furry friends has been shown to alleviate anxiety, depression and feelings of loneliness.

If you dont have access to a pet, go visit adoptable animals at the local shelter, sign up to walk dogs for a service such as WAG or sip tea at a cat cafe, Dahlen deVos said.

15. Say no more often.

We often think of self-care as doing something extra for ourselves on top of our normal day-to-day activities. But self-care can also be about what you choose not to do, Seely said.

One way to give a healthy no? Start setting boundaries with the people in your life.

So many of us are people pleasers and spend a lot of time doing things out of feelings of guilt and obligation, causing us to feel energetically drained and lacking the ability to focus on ourselves and what we truly want, said Sara Groton, a nutrition and eating psychology coach in San Francisco. Any time I find myself thinking I should do that or I have to do that, I take a moment to question and challenge that thought.

16. Practice self-compassion.

All the face masks, manicures and massages in the world cant undo the damage of that harsh inner voice criticizing, judging and berating yourself all day long.

If you dont know where to begin with self-compassion, Allison Hart a mental health professional in San Francisco recommended putting your hand over your heart and saying to yourself: I am struggling right now. Im in pain, Im angry or feeling out of the flow. May I be gentle and flexible with myself. May I be kind to myself and may I take a break from problem-solving just for a moment.

From Disparaged to Doctorate, Once Displaced Immigrant Dr. Ezzat Moghazy, Partners with AYBOS as the The Rebuild Your Mind Initiative Assistant…

Once Displaced Immigrant Dr. Ezzat Moghazy, Partners with AYBOS as the The Rebuild Your Mind Initiative Assistant Director to launch the 50,000 Hour Mental Health Challenge to all mental health professionals. Dr. Moghazy learned the power of "self-healing" early in life as he came to America without a penny in his pocket nor a roof over his head; what Moghazy did have was an integrative approach to eastern philosophy that he learned from his father.

DENVER, Feb. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --Dr. Ezzat Moghazy began consulting AYBOS and the Rebuild Your Mind (RYM) Initiative in 2019 after Dr. Nina Minagawa sent out a message to her professional network calling for support of the initiative. Still in his pre-doctorate at the time, Dr. Moghazy answered the call. Both Moghazy and now RYM Director Dr. Minagawa have both been instrumental in providing clinical direction for RYM since then. With Minagawa on medical leave, Moghazy has been filling both positions in her absence. Moghazy has accomplished an impressive resume, to now include: a Doctorate and Ph.D. in Integrative Medicine, over 20 years of experience in the medical field, a Master's degree in Physical Therapy, Certified Kinesiology Taping Instructor (CKTI), Reiki Master Teacher (RMT) since 1999, and Registered Psychotherapist /Clinical Hypnotherapist a PhD in Integrative Medicine. He met the love of his life, Michelle and started to practice in Denver & Boulder Colorado, which has become a huge success.

Since receiving his Doctorate in late 2019, Moghazy has accepted the full responsibility of the Assistant Director role for RYM. Dr. Moghazy is also the founder of My Best Healer (MBH), and has already donated many hours of consultation, as well as therapy by pledging the support of his practice. MBH, has offices in Denver and Boulder Colorado, specializing in: Chronic Pain, Weight Management, Smoking Cessation, Trauma/PTSD, Relationships Anxiety/Stress, Confidence, and Handwriting Analysis, according to their website (mybesthealer.com). Moghazy explains, "My Best Healer means You are your own best healer. In medicine, we all know that we treat people, but they heal themselves."

Dr. Moghazy learned the power of "self-healing" early in life as he came to America from Egypt without a penny in his pocket nor a roof over his head. His English was severely broken and a distant second language. What Moghazy did have was an integrative approach to eastern philosophy that he learned from his father. He taught him to pull resources from within, and he did just that.

Moghazy says that he represents the American Dream and has experienced it firsthand. Coming from such humble beginnings to become the accredited doctor he worked so hard to be, he has a passion for others in similar or worse positions. This is the motivation behind his mission for thousands of people across the world to learn how to pull resources from within themselves as taught early by his father. Ezzat starts by finding the root trauma or talent and either diminishes it or helps it to blossom. Through the initiative and community outreach, RYM and MBH also help at-risk youth of Denver see their potential and give them a light to hold on to.

At the heart of this goal is teaching the youth how to find their inner resources and encourage them to lead a life of passion, thereby creating a positive everlasting impact in the world. When they have nothing to hold on to, Moghazy's modalities and RYM techniques can help them learn to do great in life for themselves. Moghazy not only practices, but also represents this model as a child himself that started from nothing and worked his American Dream into a PhD and his own practice. You can see this passion is Dr. Moghazy's RYM Challenge Support Video included here: https://youtu.be/7P4n4RjEtSo

Dr. Moghazy has created a unique Quantum Medical approach, meaning to become resourceful, that trains neural pathways in the mind to become resourceful in order to see the world from within. This is the vision and clinical direction Moghazy brings to the RYM Initiative overall. In addition to the local economy stimulation through MBH and AYBOS, the RYM Initiative keeps on track with their goal to destigmatize mental health experiences all together.

Story continues

To accomplish this and make these resources available to every individual & business, Dr. Moghazy and AYBOS have launched the 50,000 Hour Mental Health Challenge to all mental health professionals. Moghazy and Calyn Crow of Rocky Mountain Solutions are the first therapists to put their "modalities where their mouth is." Both have donated the first hours to the challenge in hopes that as many doctors, therapists and mental health professionals follow their example in droves.

Moghazy, Crow and AYBOS are working unceasingly to make Colorado the most efficient trauma-informed (education about the brain, body & mind), trauma-conscious (understanding how to utilize this education effectively), and lastly trauma-responsive (having the resources readily available to respond to trauma in each individual) state in the US.

Both Moghazy and Crow have filmed versions of their approaches for the challenge with AYBOS Video Team. You can see both videos here:

Scientists Study Sweat, the Small Stuff – UANews

Imagine if you could know the status of any molecule in your body without needing to get your blood drawn. Science fiction? Almost but researchers at the University of Arizona are working on ways to do this by measuring molecules in sweat.

When physicians take blood samples from patients, they send the samples to labs to be analyzed for biomarkers. These biological clues indicate everything from cholesterol levels to disease risks, and they can be used to monitor patient health or make diagnostic decisions. The same biomarkers also are found in sweat.

Using $519,000 in funding from the SEMI Nano-Bio Materials Consortium, or SEMI-NBMC, Erin Ratcliff, a materials science and engineering professor and head of the UArizona Laboratory for Interface Science of Printable Electronic Materials, is leading a project to develop new ways of collecting and analyzing the clues sweat has to offer. Ultimately, this work could allow physicians to use patient sweat samples in the same way they currently use blood samples, for a less invasive and more informative approach to establishing and monitoring patient health.

Whats unique about this is that we are combining biology and engineering expertise to develop a wearable device that will detect molecules in sweat, so you dont have to get your blood drawn to know the health status of your immune system, your nervous system, indeed, any system in the body, said co-investigator and sweat biomarker pioneer Esther Sternberg, M.D. The goal, eventually, is to create a device that will provide physicians and health care providers the ability to monitor your health status continuously and in real-time without needing to draw blood.

We are pleased to sponsor and eager to complete this project with the University of Arizonas impressive team bridging the disciplines of engineering and life sciences, said Melissa Grupen-Shemansky, chief technology officer and executive director of SEMI-NBMC. A concerted interdisciplinary approach at the early stages of R & D is relatively new, and there is much learning on both sides. The University of Arizona team brings unique strengths in both areas, and we are excited to be partnering and collaborating with them.

Ratcliffs co-investigators are J. Ray Runyon, a research assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Science, and Sternberg, research director for the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine; director of the Institute on Place, Wellbeing, and Performance; and the Andrew Weil Inaugural Chair for Research in Integrative Medicine. All three researchers are members of the BIO5 Institute.

Standardized Sample Collection

In order to study sweat, researchers need to collect samples of it, and there are a number of ways to do so.

The obvious idea would be to make a patch that gets information from many pores at once, but the problem is that this creates a space between the patch and your skin, and you have to wait for it to fill up with sweat, Ratcliff said. We hypothesize that while youre waiting, these molecules the very molecules youre trying to detect and analyze are changing chemically.

The teamsfirst task is to develop new, continuous and hands-free collection devices that deliver high-quality, standardized sweat samples. This will allow health care professionals to gain a more holistic picture of a patient's bodily systems over an extended period, rather than the snapshot a blood draw can provide of a particular moment.

Currently, sweat labs across the world are using different methods to collect samples, which limits researchers ability to compare data. Standardizing the collection method could provide researchers, including medical device developers, with a new degree of confidence in sweat sample data.

High-quality data, with respect to different target molecular biomarkers in sweat, requires that a high-quality sample be collected, Runyon said. This will be the first hands-free method that will truly take into account the interplay of the chemistry of sweat, the target biomarker and the device material.

Low-level Detection

The team is also developing methods for researchers to detect and analyze neuropeptides in the collected samples. Used by neurons to communicate with each other, these small molecules are involved in biological functions, including metabolism, reproduction and memory.

Commercial wearable devices monitor metrics like heart rate, and some use sweat sensors to monitor dehydration level. Measuring neuropeptides, however, will allow researchers to zoom in millions of times closer to investigate stress and relaxation responses at the molecular level.

The idea is that your sweat is reflecting your nervous system all of the neurotransmitters your body uses to signal between the brain and the rest of the body, Ratcliff said. Monitoring this biochemical response continually, over a 24-hour cycle, can inform us about the health of the wearer and also act as a diagnostic tool.

A Western multidisciplinary healthcare facility in the heart of Kyiv – Kyiv Post

International Multi-Profile Clinic is committed to providing professional, compassionate and evidenced-based health care in a clean, modern, multidisciplinary, multilingual and multicultural environment in Ukraine.

The mission of the IMP Clinic is to provide our patients with innovative medical services applying the Western standard of medical care, delivered by English, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Arabic, Farsi, Hindu, Turkish, Ukrainian and Russian-speaking medical staff.

We are specialists in serving embassies, multi-national corporations and the expatriate community and offer international medical escorts and evacuations.

What makes the IMP Clinic different from the many other clinics in Kyiv?

The American futurist and social engineer have known worldwide, Jack Fresco, who recently passed away at the age of 101, took the view that science is the unification of all human knowledge geology, astronomy, anatomy, meteorology and many others are not separate from one another.

The same is true in medicine. There are so many wonderful specialists in the world, but they treat only a small piece of the human body. What we seek to create at the IMP Clinic is a new generation medical center entirely based on family medicine, which in Ukraine is an undeveloped specialization compared to other Western countries.

International Multi-Profile Clinic views Family Medicine as the future of medical practice; it unifies all medical knowledge in one setting. A good family physician treats their patients as a whole: body, mind and soul, using evidence-based, integrative medicine because in our opinion all methods are good if they help a patient to be healthy.

Another thing that makes IMP Clinic unique is the team of multi-disciplined, multilingual and multicultural physicians, nurses and healthcare workers who use an integrated approach to restore health and quality of life to our patients. We work closely with international and local insurances providers. Our ultimate goal is the prevention of disease, diagnosis and treatment of illness, the promotion of wellness and increases in patient functioning and quality of life.

This is what makes our clinic unique.
