Why should I work with an expert?

If at all possible, it is important to work with a natural integrative cancer treatment expert because they are highly educated and researched in their field and can formulate a treatment plan that suits each patient based on their individual needs.

How do I find a good doctor?

Finding a doctor open to natural and integrative cancer treatments can be challenging. Cancer Tutor has a searchable list of Natural Health Clinics that offer cancer treatments. Several of these clinics are “Cancer Tutor Certified” meaning we have sent our Clinics Team to visit the clinic and see how it runs and what it offers directly. You can find our list here: Also, here is some good advice:

What questions do I ask my healthcare team?

There is a handy list of questions here:

My family member doesn't want natural treatment. What can I do?

While everyone wants what they feel is best for a patient, it is rarely successful to force a patient to do something they don't want to do. The best advice we have is to give them as much accurate information as possible so they have the tools they need to make an informed decision. In the end, it is their decision to make. Even if they decide to go with more traditional treatments, you can always offer them information on integrative treatments to help them through. For example, see:


Are there rules for using natural cancer treatments?

Yes! Most natural cancer treatments include very detailed directions on how to use the treatment. We encourage you to fully understand any treatment you will use before starting.

Can natural cancer treatment interfere with your prescription drugs?

Yes. They absolutely can. There are many contraindications and side effects that can accompany any type of cancer treatment. We do address many of the rules on our treatment-specific pages, but because each patient's situation is different, there is no way to cover it all. This is why it's so important for a patient to do as much research as they can before starting.

Why should I use only one highly alkaline product at a time?

Too much alkalinity in the body can cause “alkalosis” which can be very dangerous.

Why shouldn't I use antioxidants within 4 hours of the Budwig Diet?

Some supplements, especially high amounts of antioxidants, can interfere with how well the diet works.
