Many will not know what integrative oncology or an integrative cancer coach is, as it is not widely known, even though it has been practised for over 25 years, but with statistics showing that 1 in every 2 men and 1 in every 3 women will get cancer and as these statistics are rising integrative cancer coaching and care is becoming an appreciated field of support for those coping with this dread disease.
In 2017 integrative oncology (integrative cancer care) was defined as:
Integrative oncology is a patient-centred, evidence-informed field of cancer care that utilizes mind and body practices, natural products, and/or lifestyle modifications alongside conventional cancer treatments. Integrative oncology aims to optimize health, quality of life and clinical outcomes across the cancer care continuum, and to empower people to prevent cancer and become active participants before, during and beyond cancer treatment.

What integrative cancer care does is to provide a health plan for you, in cooperation with your oncologist, complementing his disease management plan. The two work hand in hand to help people not only survive but thrive after treatment.
Another way an integrative cancer coach can help, is to reduce the risk in people concerned that they may get this terrible disease.
Having first-hand experience of the horror of a cancer diagnosis and the effect it can have on a person, their family, and friends, my greatest wish is to spare everyone the trauma caused by this dread disease.

Hi, I’m Meme. I’m passionate about helping others prevent cancer and other diseases.
When I discovered how an integrative cancer coach could help those with cancer, I knew I had found my calling. Having been through the horrific trauma of losing my mom to cancer at a young age, my best friend, many other friends, my brother diagnosed with lymphoma and my husband with melanoma, I knew as an integrative cancer coach I could give hope to many.
With this in mind, I founded Integrative Cancer Coach – integrative cancer care that uses evidence based, natural means to enhance the efficacy of mainstream treatments and reduce the side effects.
