Integrative Oncology

Dr. Bye is a Naturopathic physician who is board certified in Naturopathic Oncology.

She works with Cancer patients and those who want to reduce their risk factors for Cancer, through a holistic and complementary approach.

Dr. Bye works with her patients to improve general health and to establish customized protocols to complement and minimize side effects from standard Oncology treatments. She has been working predominantly with cancer patients since 2001.

For patients in remission, she works to help them to recover from their cancer treatments and stay as healthy as possible with a customized patient-centered remission retention program. This program helps to reduce recurrence rates, long-term side effects of Oncology care, and improve quality of life.

The majority of Oncology patients are using some form of complementary or alternative care, most of which is garnered from the internet and they are not telling their Oncologist. This can be dangerous. As such, Dr. Bye works with her patients to make sure that they are getting the best coordination of Integrative Oncology (also known as Alternative Oncology or Complementary Oncology) care from a qualified source.

From the Society of Integrative Oncology

“Integrative oncology is a patient-centered, evidence-informed field of cancer care that utilizes mind and body practices, natural products, and/or lifestyle modifications from different traditions alongside conventional cancer treatments. Integrative oncology aims to optimize health, quality of life, and clinical outcomes across the cancer care continuum and to empower people to prevent cancer and become active participants before, during, and beyond cancer treatment.”

Integrative Oncology is a fast growing field and changing every day. Dr. Bye attends several integrative Oncology conferences each year and is a member of the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians (OncAnp). OncAnp is one of many sources used to provide access to the latest current research.

Dr. Bye also works with family members of cancer patients and those that just want to be proactive to help reduce their risk factors for cancer.
