Many complementary therapies, used along with conventional medicine, can support cancer treatments, reduce some of the adverse effects of cancer treatment, ease tension and pain, and contribute to overall health. This is known as integrative medicine. Integrative medicine can be a part of your plan throughout the entire treatment and survivorship experience.  In this webinar, we will talk about how integration can be helpful to you after a colorectal cancer diagnosis and your journey forward.
