As herbalists, we can offer holistic care to people going through different stages and types of cancers. Individually tailored nutritional and herbal protocols can help to reduce side effects and improve efficacy of conventional medical interventions, support the person’s overall resilience, and may reduce risk of recurrence. This class will include an overview of the physiological mechanisms of cancer, therapeutic goals and herbal actions, the core herbal materia medica and dietary support. From a client-centered approach, we will discuss end of life care, working with oncologists, and supporting our clients in framing realistic goals and expectations for working with herbs.
