Your selection of an oncologist is important because this doctor will be involved in your care for many years.
- Your selection of a conventional oncologist must be open to your desire for an integrated approach to treatment (as stated in our Believe Big First Steps Guide).
- We recommend setting up appointments with THREE different oncologists for your type of cancer.
- PRINT the “Key Questions to Ask Oncologists” for EACH appointment to help you select the best oncologist for your specific needs and care.
Integrative Practitioners listed on this page are another strategic aspect to your care. Each of these natural medicine physicians has had additional training with mistletoe therapy and many have had additional certifications in oncology. They can effectively guide you on your cancer journey.
These practitioners can help you:
- Find the best diet and supplementation to reduce and prevent chronic inflammation.
- Stimulate natural killer cells.
- Promote a healthy digestive and immune system.
- Effectively remove free radicals and toxins from your system.
- Discover the best alternative therapies to compliment your conventional treatments.
Please use the key below to note the varying degrees of experience, qualifications and methods of practice of each practitioner.

DO: Doctors of Osteopathic medicine and MD’s (Doctor of Medicine) are licensed to practice in all 50 states. They are similarly educated and certified, but the difference is in their training in philosophy of patient care. Osteopathic philosophy involves treating the mind, the body, and the spirit which is very similar to anthroposophical physicians who are MD’s.
