What are natural treatments for leukemia?

Naturopathic medicine uses non-invasive, non-toxic therapies to strengthen the body’s ability to heal itself. When used throughout your care, naturopathic treatments can help to do the following:
  • Strengthen your immune system.
  • Boost your energy level.
  • Support normal metabolism and digestion.
  • Reduce treatment-related side effects.
  • Support long-term health and wellness.
A naturopathic treatment plan should support your medical care. Your individualized plan may include any of the following naturopathic medicines:
  • Nutritional supplements (e.g., vitamins)
  • Botanical medicine (e.g., herbs)
  • Homeopathic medicines
  • Acupuncture
  • Auricular acupressure
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Detoxification therapies
  • Essential oils (e.g., aromatherapy inhalers or topical products)
Throughout your leukemia treatment, your naturopath should monitor your supplement and vitamin intake to ensure safety from potential drug-herb and drug-nutrient interactions.
