Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death in men. Only 25% of men with early prostate cancer are cured by prostatectomy and no effective conventional treatment exists for advanced disease. Naturopathic medicine has many ways to reduce risk of prostate cancer and to slow its development once it does occur. In this presentation, Dr. Reilly will discuss the basics of epidemiology, pathology, current debate regarding value of conventional treatment, and naturopathic treatments to either stand alone or be used in conjunction with conventional care.
Dr. Lamson will moderate a panel of naturopathic physicians who specialize in treating cancer patients. Each panelist will discuss a specific cancer topic. Questions from the audience will be answered.
