103 Naturopathic Oncology

Jenna Bailey is a Naturopathic doctor who works with Oncology. She is a wonderful guide in this part of the big picture.

At the very beginning, we were looking at all kinds of additional modalities.  Western medicine tends to leave out parts of the big picture.  Spirituality, prayer.  Naturopathy, diet, supplements.  Mind, in the methods of support and counseling. Jenna Bailey is a Naturopathic doctor who works with Oncology.  She is a wonderful guide in this part of the big picture. 

I admit that pills are not my forte.  I forget to take them.  I don’t trust them.  In some ways, I normally don’t “believe in them”.

And supplements can be a game of large corporate gain.  People are convinced to take extracts and powders and pills that have no quality or health advantage whatsoever, just because the company that makes them has no integrity, or because the one who ingests them is clueless (about the combinations, the quality, or the need).

This is where a professional is important.  I trust Dr. Bailey to sort this out for me.  And she does.  She directs me to the right things to take, the brands that are trusted, and to the correct combinations and times to take the concoctions.  There are days for this powder and times for that pill.  It is not the simplicity of having read an article or listened to a podcast. 

The prescriptions are adjusted as the situation shifts.  When I started the chemo drug, Avastin, an additional powder joined the mix.  The wound wasn’t healing, so we added a supplement that supports the assimilation of protein.  When chemotherapy paused for wound healing, several of the supportive supplements were halted.  I couldn’t do this on my own!

What does she have me take on a regular basis?  Vitamin C and Zinc.  Likely, everyone should do that right now for support against viruses.  And a strong antioxidant. 

I am so grateful for the Naturopathic eye on the challenges of the body.
