What is cancer integrative rehab?

At Atlantic W.I.S.H. Clinic, we combine cancer rehabilitation with integrative medicine and health, delivering a holistic approach to improving and maintaining your overall health and wellness. 

Cancer integrative rehab focuses on improving your physical fitness, mobility, and emotional well-being. Our physician aims to help you return to your regular daily activities and increase your chances of beating cancer. 

What is included in integrative cancer rehab?

Your integrative cancer rehabilitation program is tailored to address your individual needs so you can return to your personal and professional pursuits. Our physician might combine integrative and functional therapies such as:

Nutritional assessments and nutritional genomics

Our physician analyses your diet and performs tests to evaluate your specific nutritional needs. Atlantic W.I.S.H. Clinic uses nutritional genomics to identify how your body’s genetic makeup responds to certain nutrients. 

This information allows our provider to create a specific nutritional plan to optimize your health. 

Alternative medicine

Acupuncture, energy medicine (microcurrent and Alpha-Stim®), electroacupuncture, acupressure, or cupping might be part of your integrative cancer rehab program.

Mindfulness

Practicing mindfulness and other meditative techniques that combine breathing and movement, such as yoga, tai chi, and qigong, can relieve pain and other symptoms while restoring your emotional and mental wellness.

Movement therapy

Movement therapy includes passive and active exercise, stretching, balance training, sports-specific training, and modalities such as taping to promote healing and alleviate pain and other symptoms.

What are the benefits of integrative cancer rehab?

Integrative cancer rehab enhances your well-being, which supports your fight against cancer in a variety of ways. Improving your overall health makes conventional cancer treatments more bearable and helps you stay positive and healthy throughout your treatment. 

The Atlantic W.I.S.H. Clinic approach also helps reduce related symptoms of pain, fatigue, nausea, brain fog, and other side effects of both cancer and its treatments.
