Healthcare for Family and Caregivers
The OICC goes far beyond cancer in its goal to minimize disease and ill health. Family members and caregivers are treated by our naturopathic doctors and associate practitioners for a multitude of health issues outside
Ensuring optimal health of family and caregivers, also helps to improve outcomes for those living with cancer.
Our supportive therapies help family members and caregivers feel cared for
OICC therapies such as acupuncture, massage, reflexology, yoga, physiotherapy, counseling services and naturopathic consultations, if not specifically treating a particular disease, will promote a sense of well-being.
Maintaining the health and well-being of family and caregivers is essential yet this is often put aside in the midst of caring for their loved one with cancer.
What are the various conditions we treat?
Obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, gastro intestinal disorders, cardiovascular disease, endocrine and hormonal disorders, nervous system disorders, edema, allergies and asthma, sleep disorders, stress and much more.
“Over the course of the last two and a half years since my husband’s cancer diagnosis, I have felt positively supported by the amazing team of caring professionals at the OICC. Starting with compassionate case management and following all the way through to nutrition counselling, yoga therapy, reflexology, acupuncture, and psychotherapy, I have felt accompanied every step of the way. While my husband benefitted from the wonderful naturopathic and complementary care modalities to deal with his symptoms,
I too received the care I needed during this difficult journey.“ - Judy Charles
