n-3 Fatty Acids and Cancer Therapy
The research supporting the use of natural medicine along with traditional cancer therapies is, to say the least, overwhelming. And yet, I have a patient that is currently undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. Her oncologist said he wants her taking NOTHING during the chemotherapy so it will not interfere. I’m sorry, but this is an ignorant, dangerous and narrow minded approach.
Physicians entrusted to the care of patients in their most vulnerable time of their life should read medical journals in their sleep. But, the comments of this oncologist suggests to me that he reads none. This should be considered malpractice. As a physician, you have an OBLIGATION to stay current with the medical literature so you can provide your patient with the absolute best care. Sorry…I’ll get off my soapbox now.
