Abstract

More and more people living with and beyond cancer seek integrative interventions to complement their conventional cancer care. This second edition of this online resource provides the most updated information available with new chapters on Music and Expressive Arts Therapies, Naturopathic Oncology, and an integrative approach to Lung Cancer. Integrative medicine is defined as healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person (body, mind, and spirit) as well as all aspects of lifestyle; it emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative. This online resource is presented in an easy-to-read format featuring case histories, clinical pearls, and useful tables, with all key information highlighted.
