Alternative and complementary therapies

Transcript

So when I met with the medical oncologist he outlined the treatment plan for me, talked to me about a chemotherapy plan and how long it would take and I told him I would think about it and then left it at that. I’m quite into natural medicine and alternative therapies and I wanted to do some investigation that way. I actually started to see a naturopath and started to do vitamin C intravenous and started to take some supplements and with a number of alternative caregivers. My children were quite upset with that and wanted me to do the medical treatment and so we, had a lot of discussions about that, a lot of hard discussions and then I agreed. I said “Okay we would do it.” I thought I didn’t want to leave any stone unturned. I was doing a number of natural treatments and thought it would complement the medical treatment.
