Integrative Cancer Options
Gain confidence in what you can do as a naturopathic practitioner to support clients who have cancer
Many practitioners feel intimidated when approached with a cancer client. Cancer is a health experience during which a well-trained practitioner can make a tremendous difference to the overall outcome for their client. Patricia Peat, founder of Cancer Options, has been working with cancer patients for over 20 years. In this 90 minute lecture, Patricia will outline the therapies and nutraceuticals that she has used successfully to bring relief for her clients. With this information, practitioners will gain the confidence they need to confidently approach experiences such as nausea, fatigue, weight loss and anxiety for clients experiencing cancer.
In her 20 years as an oncology nurse, Cancer Options founder Patricia Peat saw thousands of cancer patients struggle with difficult emotions: shock, fear, anxiety, grief, trepidation, uncertainty.
But for many people, the worst feeling was of not being in control – of their treatment, their future, their health outcomes.
Also of not being listened to when they wanted to find ways to help themselves, “the sense of disempowerment was palpable”.
Patricia recognised that what people needed was access to quality, up-to-date information and research about all the latest and best approaches to the treatment and management of their illness so they could take charge of their cancer decisions – and reclaim their health choices for themselves.
