Welcome to IntegrativeOncology-Essentials

brianlawenda2012My name is Dr. Brian Lawenda and I founded IntegrativeOncology-Essentials (IOE“) and the AntiCancerize Me Programon January 1, 2009. Since that time we have proudly helped educate over a quarter-million individuals around the world on the use of evidence-informed, integrative approaches to cancer care and the anticancer lifestyle.

If you want to know what ELSE you can do (in addition to conventional cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, drugs, surgery) to optimize cancer outcomes and minimize side effects you’ve come to the right place.

I created IntegrativeOncology-Essentials and the AntiCancerize Me Program™ to teach you about “integrative oncology,” a comprehensive approach to cancer care based on combining anticancer lifestyle changes, evidence-informed complementary and alternative therapies and the latest, state of the art cancer treatments.

For those of you who are looking for a web-based program to help you make your body less conducive to cancer development, growth and recurrence check out the AntiCancerize Me Program.™ 


This program condenses the most important information I teach at conferences and lectures throughout the U.S. and I personalize it for you so you can immediately start ‘anticancerizing’ your body today.
