Herbs and Other Dietary Supplements in Cancer Care

For TCM practitioners and other therapists, this course addresses important issues regarding herbal medicines and cancer treatment. While some herbal products can enhance the effect of chemotherapy, others can cause harmful adverse effects. This course addresses the safety and efficacy of herbal remedies in the cancer setting. It also provides a more general overview of herbs and other dietary supplements.

This course provides practitioners with the knowledge and skills to:

  • Understand the historical perspective of herbal use
  • Identify supplements most commonly used by cancer patients
  • Recognize challenges associated with supplement use
