Learn helpful strategies for prevention, treatment, and recovery. Chinese medicine can be a powerful component of integrative care in the West as it is in China. Participants will learn:
• How the holistic framework of TCM fills gaps in cancer prevention and treatment
• What herbs and supplements are safe and beneficial during conventional care
• How mind-body techniques are beneficial for more than symptom relief
