IntegrativeOncology-Essentials (“IOE”) was founded by Dr. Brian Lawenda, in June 2010, as a resource for patients, caregivers and healthcare practitioners to learn more about integrative approaches to cancer prevention and care.
If this is your first time on IOE, please visit our Start Here page.
The content on the IOE is produced by members of the Society for Integrative Oncology, and are recognized experts in their respective areas of integrative oncology practice:
We don’t intend for the IOE to be encyclopedic. Instead, our mission is focusing on being your ‘go to’ site for learning useful, timely, practical and easy to understand information on key topics in integrative cancer care (thus our slogan, “Integrative Answers to Cancer”.)
The IOE logo was designed around the “prevention symbol,” as we believe that prevention serves as one of the core concept of integrative oncology:
- prevention of cancer development
- prevention of cancer growth
- prevention of cancer recurrence
- prevention of side effects and complications
- prevention of new cancers
The IOE is a labor of love, and we hope you enjoy your frequent visits to our site. Please contact us if you have any suggestions for improvement or additions you would like for us to consider.
