Abstract

Context: Arthralgia is common and debilitating for a significant proportion of breast cancer survivors (BCSs) and leads to poor adherence to aromatase inhibitors (AIs). Despite increased recognition of the negative impact of arthralgia on function and the poor adherence that results, very few interventions have been developed to target this side effect.

Objective: This study aimed to determine the feasibility of tai chi to improve well-being for women experiencing AI-associated arthralgias (AIAAs).

Design: The study was a pilot to (1) demonstrate the feasibility of recruitment and retention for read more…

Nutritional Approaches for Integrative Oncology (Slideshow)

by Tina Kaczor, ND, FABNO

Nutrition therapy is increasingly playing a bigger role in cancer prevention and treatment. The literature points to genetic causes of cancer at only 5-10%, while environmental influence is attributable to a dramatic 90-95% of all cancers. Diet alone accounts for up to 35% of all environmental influencers, which surprisingly exceeds tobacco (30%).

Topics in this slideshow:

  • Hallmarks of Carcinogenesis
  • Cancer Prevention and Diet
  • Fruits, Vegetables and Omega-3′s: The Anti-Cancer Toolbox
  • Nutrients and Cancer Cell Progression
  • Supporting Phase II Pathways as Chemoprevention
