Description

THE ONCOLOGY MASTERCLASS

10 Module Online Webinar Series

Advances in Natural Oncology care have been significant over recent years and this updated Masterclass will give you lots of new concepts and tools for the most common tumour types. *This Course is an update, with the addition of Breast Cancer, to our previous Oncology Masterclass (2014) and includes the 8 webinars from that course as a bonus.

Cancer remains the most feared disease and is still the second largest cause of death in the World with much of this preventable and a lot predictable. We can do a great deal to improve the prospects of those people who have cancer. There’s gut function, immune support, hepatic protection and many other strategies that will be covered in detail. Importantly, some tumour recommendations are contradicted for others. Getting the right plan for the right patient is critical in cancer care.

Your presenters are experts in natural oncology, particularly in their individual tumours that they discuss in detail in this Masterclass. Their brief is to give you what you need to do, to give your patients with cancer the best care.
