In this webinar, Dr. Donald Abrams, integrative oncologist at UCSF and editor of the book Integrative Oncology, will review the benefits of an integrative approach in the prevention and treatment of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the most common malignant diagnosis in men, and lifestyle behaviors seem to impact its development.
In addition, once a diagnosis of prostate cancer has been made, lifestyle choices may alter outcomes. This often indolent disease, with its long overall survival, provides a unique opportunity for men to explore diet and other behavioral interventions. Typical treatments, such as surgery, radiation, and hormone therapy, can all produce physical and psychological side effects that may be helped by complementary therapies.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- The role of a plant-based diet and regular physical activity in reducing the risk of prostate cancer
- The role of integrative therapies and lifestyle choices in the management of prostate cancer
- Whether supplements can be useful
- The benefits of acupuncture
- The potential of mind-body interventions to reduce stress associated with living with a cancer diagnosis
This webinar will take place on Thursday, June 24 at 11 AM PST / 2 PM EST.
