InspireHealth’s programmes teach Canadians ways to prevent cancer, alleviate symptoms of cancer treatment, reduce the likelihood of recurrence, and optimise the body’s healing potential. Programming includes consultations with a team of health care providers, and classes that teach the benefits of nutrition, exercise, and emotional and immune support. Services are intended to complement conventional cancer treatments — chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.
Integrative Cancer Care Programmes: LIFE Program: InspireHealth’s signature two-day programme teaches participants about the body’s innate healing capacity, the latest scientific research in integrative care, and how to incorporate natural approaches to healing with conventional treatments. They use evidence-based natural approaches to recovery that can be safely integrated with conventional cancer treatments. The programming is led by physicians and other health care professionals.
