Dr Keith Block

Keith I. Block, MD, widely regarded as the “father” of integrative oncology, combines cutting-edge conventional treatments with individualised and scientifically-based innovative, complementary and nutraceutical therapies. In 1980, he co-founded the Block Center for Integrative Cancer Treatment in Skokie, Illinois, the first such facility in North America. This model continues to set the standard for the practice of a comprehensive, individualised approach to cancer treatment in the U.S.

At the Block Center, Keith Block, MD, Penny Block, PhD and their team are pioneers in integrative treatment who are recognised for setting the national standard in this fighting-on-all-fronts approach to cancer treatment. The Block Center offers a holistic approach to cancer offering an individualised treatment plan, including cutting-edge forms of traditional treatments in combination with complementary and alternative therapies.

Dr Block has more than 150 publications in scientific journals and books relevant to nutritional and integrative oncology. In his breakthrough book, Life Over Cancer Dr Block presents the unique Block Program for fighting cancer to people who are at different places along the cancer continuum; for those who’ve been recently diagnosed, in treatment, concluded treatment and need to prevent recurrence. Block’s meticulously researched program is laid out and explained in an easy-to-understand language that patients can implement both by themselves, as well as with the assistance of their healthcare provider.
