Oncology

 

In every stage of cancer, a variety of therapy or disease associated symptoms can occur, such as cancer fatigue and chemotherapy side effects, which can be effectively improved with anthroposophic medications and symptom-specific interdisciplinary treatment concepts.

Here we offer practical recommendations for medication and therapy.

It is important to ask how patients can become active co-creators on their path to healing. Meeting them on equal terms enables us to find appropriate forms of treatment for each individual disease situation.

Anthroposophic Medicine is an evaluated part of CRF treatment   
Cancer-realted fatigue (CRF) is one of the most frequent and prevalent symptoms expressed by cancer patients and cancer survivors. A current systematic review aimed to identify different clinical evaluation scales and interventions available for fatigue associated with cancer. Therefore, 2611 research articles were screened and revealed also non-pharmacological interventions such as exercise, complementary therapies, nutritional and psychoeducational interventions, sleep therapy, Anthroposophic Medicine, and various pharmacological agents effective in managing CRF. The results are published open access:
