Integrative oncology is really a patient, non-tumor centric treatment protocol. It leverages the benefits of many disciplines such as yoga, traditional Chinese medicine and exercise, working in conjunction with conventional medicine.
Medicinal mushrooms have been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Among their many benefits, they are a powerful tool to stimulate cancer immunity. We invite you to explore more thoroughly the various types of mushrooms and their uses in extracts, teas and foods in this video by Dr Jen Green.
