A cancer diagnosis can be a frightening and overwhelming event for both patient and friends and family. Integrative oncology is a new approach to treating patients from a holistic perspective and places the patient’s overall wellbeing at the core. Catherine Zollman MD is the medical director of Penny Brohn, a charity that supports cancer patients and those affected using such an approach. Catherine describes how looking at diet, exercise, mind, spirit and emotions can deeply influence a person’s cancer journey. She shares the various offerings available to patients, including short stay, residential visits to the centre in Bristol. It is always possible to help cancer patients in some way and offering a safe and supportive environment is a keystone service at Penny Brohn. All services are free of charge and any patient can self refer and receive help. At the forefront of true integrative oncology, Penny Brohn is a marvellous resource for any person affected by cancer.
