Dalal Akoury, MD recently participated in the 12th Annual International Integrative Oncology Conference “A New Caring Standard” in Reno, Nevada for health care professionals to learn about integrative oncology from doctors who have pioneered the field. The conference was produced by The Best Answer for Cancer Foundation of Austin, TX.
Integrative Oncology is a patient centered approach to managing cancer using therapies that include everything needed to administer to the whole body, treating from the inside out in most cases. The annual conference features best practices, case studies, and evolving techniques of integrative oncology.
Speakers and instructors came to Reno from all over the world to participate in teaching fellow doctors and health care professionals the nuances of new medical procedures that target the cancer, not the patient.
Dalal Akoury, MD spoke at the conference on The Mind/Body/Spirit Connection and Cancer. Dr. Akoury has used several new, evolving standards of care for cancer patients in her Myrtle Beach, SC clinic, AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, with good success.
Dr. Akoury says, “Aligning all of the aspects of the human spirit, mind, and body correctly will provide a much more successful outcome for most cancer patients. One day we would like to be the place of first resort for cancer therapies, instead of often repairing damage done by conventional cancer treatments when they have failed the patient.”
The Best Answer for Cancer Foundation is the official certifying body for the International Organization of Integrative Cancer Physicians (IOICP) which coordinates the training, research, communication, and on-going education of integrative cancer physicians and IPT/IPTLD providers world-wide.
