Naturopathic medicine is well known for helping to prevent cancer using lifestyle counseling and detoxification, but can also complement conventional treatment modalities using clinical nutrition and botanical medicine. The integration of these treatment strategies improves the outcome of the cancer and the quality of life of the patient. This textbook is designed to introduce medical college and health science students to this integrative approach to oncology. Part 1 reviews basic cancer cell biology and inflammatory pathway biochemistry, tracing the development of an abnormal cell into a cancer cell. Various theories of cell mutation are examined with the focus on inflammatory pathway biochemistry. Conventional chemo- and radiation therapies are analyzed in this context, as are the key naturopathic cancer treatment modalities, clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, and lifestyle counseling.

Enemas and colonic irrigation are commonly used by naturopaths for a wide range of medical conditions, [40] for which there are no known health benefits.

According to the FDA , "Ozone is a toxic gas with no known useful medical application in specific, adjunctive, or preventive therapy. Atwood IV writes, in the journal Medscape General Medicine, Naturopathic physicians now claim to be primary care physicians proficient in the practice of both "conventional" and "natural" medicine. Their training, however, amounts to a small fraction of that of medical doctors who practice primary care.

An examination of their literature, moreover, reveals that it is replete with pseudoscientific, ineffective, unethical, and potentially dangerous practices. If naturopaths are not to be judged "nonscientific practitioners", the term has no useful meaning". Relman , the Textbook of Natural Medicine is inadequate as a teaching tool, as it omits to mention or treat in detail many common ailments, improperly emphasizes treatments "not likely to be effective" over those that are, and promotes unproven herbal remedies at the expense of pharmaceuticals.

He concludes that "the risks to many sick patients seeking care from the average naturopathic practitioner would far outweigh any possible benefits".


Naturopaths claim that these natural treatments help restore the body's innate ability to heal itself without the adverse effects of conventional medicine. However, "natural" methods and chemicals are not necessarily safer or more effective than "artificial" or "synthetic" ones, and any treatment capable of eliciting an effect may also have deleterious side effects.

Quackery not only harms people, it undermines the ability to conduct scientific research and should be opposed by scientists", says William T.

The reasons for this opposition are based, in part, on the early views which shaped the foundation of this profession. In general, they can be categorized into three groups: 1 those with a government issued license; 2 those who practice outside of an official status "traditional naturopaths" ; 3 those who are primarily another kind of health professional who also practices naturopathy. Coverage of syndromes and therapies helps in understanding the underlying causes of diseases by discussing topics such as food reactions, functional toxicology, sports nutrition, stress management, and breathing pattern disorders.

Coverage of the philosophy of natural medicine includes its history and background, with discussions of toxicity, detoxification, and scientific documentation of the healing actions of nature and natural substances. Internationally known authors Joseph Pizzorno and Michael Murray and more than 90 expert contributors provide material that is up to date, accurate, and informed.

More than 10, research literature citations show that the content is based on science rather than opinions or anecdotes. Table of Contents 1.
