Bastyr University Launches Integrative Outpatient Cancer Research Center

  [ Not Yet Rated ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • June 25, 2009


Bastyr University, just north of Seattle, Washington, is one of the world’s leading academic centers dedicated to clinical degree programs and research with a focus on the holistic and natural health sciences - including nutritional and herbal medicine.

Utilizing epidemiological and basic science studies and clinical trials, Bastyr has played a large role in increasing the amount of research activity in the field of natural health sciences.

Expanding Involvement in Natural Cancer Therapies
Through collaborations with government and private research agencies such as the NIH and various foundations, as well as natural products industries, Bastyr’s Research Institute has undertaken more than 80 studies in the field of natural health care. One example being trials of T. versicolor (turkey tail) mushroom extract as an immune-modulator in women undergoing radiation therapy for breast cancer – in partnership with the University of Minnesota.

Now, to extend its work in this field, the University recently opened the Bastyr Integrative Oncology Research Center (BIORC), an outpatient clinic that provides comprehensive support and care to those with cancer. Through the BIORC, leading oncologists specialized in nutritional, Chinese herbal, and mind/body/energy medicine partner in therapy & research with their patients’ conventional oncologists to support their general health while addressing the negative effects of surgery, chemo, and radiation.

Q&A with the BIORC’s Lead Experts
For a deeper look into how BIORC functions, what patients can expect when they visit, and the types of therapies offered, the website offers interviews with three of its lead oncologists.

Pushing the Envelope
To quote the BIORC, “Although cancer is still the second leading cause of death in the U.S., recent statistics show headway being made in the battle against the disease. Less than half of the approximately 1.4 million Americans diagnosed with cancer each year die from it (about 560,000), and the rate at which Americans get cancer decreased in 2008 for the first time since the early 1990s. “Bastyr University believes those numbers could improve even further through the continued integration of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies into conventional cancer treatment programs.”
