Dr. Lori Bouchard is on the Summit For Wellness Podcast to discuss treatment options for cancer

109- Effective Cancer Treatments (That Aren’t Chemo or Radiation) with Dr. Lori Bouchard

Getting a cancer diagnosis can be one of the most shocking and scary experiences someone goes through. Your mind starts to race through what you just heard, and you start to think about the tough questions.

"How am I going to support my family", "how much time do I have", "there is so much left to do in this world", and so on.

Typically, while your mind is racing, your doctor had continued the conversation about next steps and what to expect, but you probably missed most of it. Next thing you know, you are scheduling treatment appointments, and you have no time to think.

We all know about chemo and radiation at this point, but what if there were other treatment options that are less invasive and have a lot of impact on your success rate?

What Are Less Invasive Cancer Treatments?

When we are talking about less invasive treatments, these are treatments that do minimal damage to the body itself. When you compare it to radiation, radiation is used on a targeted area to kill anything in its path (ideally cancer cells).

Some less invasive treatments include colon hydrotherapy, high dose Vitamin C, and even mistletoe therapy.

In this episode we will be diving deeper into a lot of different treatments, so grab a pen and paper and get ready to write down some notes!
