Evidence Based Care
In this era of "evidence based medicine" Belle endeavors to use natural medicines supported by scientific literature. Globally this evidence continues to accumulate. Natural medicines are being shown to be of particular use in supporting patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy. For example gastrointestinal integrity, immunity, stress coping ability and emotional stability can all be supported with a combination of nutritional and herbal medicine. Following medical treatment natural medicine approaches can be of benefit particularly to support natural detoxification as well as physical, psychological and emotional recovery.
A diagnosis of cancer affects well-being on multiple levels: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual & social. Belle offers a holistic care approach to cancer which considers all these levels - this approach nurtures well-being with both natural medicines & counselling support.
