Here’s a link to Dr. Shainhouse’s blog post: Using Naturopathic Medicine to Combat Side Effects of Cancer Treatment to go along with the video previously posted!  She discusses managing the side effects after treatment for breast cancer.  Dr. Shainhouse has been practicing naturopathic oncology for 11 years out of her private practice and the teaching clinic of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine.  She also is a regular lecturer at Wellspring Cancer Support Centre.  In the last few years, she has attempted to bridge the gap further by starting an observation program for her interns at Sunnybrook Hospital.
