Chapter 17 covers naturopathic oncology and discusses how it provides a scientifically sound and vital component to the holistic support of each person diagnosed with cancer—from prevention through treatment and into survivorship, that it is based on the core principle of the healing power of nature--the acceptance of the body's inherent ability to heal itself, how epidemiological evidence shows that 15–25% of cancers are said to be linked to chronic infection or chronic inflammation, thereby making the assessment and treatment of chronic inflammation a cornerstone of naturopathic oncology, and that insulin and insulin-like growth factor—1(IGF-1) are direct growth factors for cancer cells and therapies targeted to correction of this metabolic imbalance are paramount.
