Fall 2021 Term Guest Lecture

Topic: Cancer Stem Cells and Botanicals

With: Dr. Holly Lucille, ND, RN

When: Thursday, October 28th at 4 pm EST

Whether practitioners have had additional post graduate training in oncology or not, we all see patients who are going through conventional cancer treatments. How can we, as practitioners, offer best practices to support our patient/client’s best outcomes? Part of it, of course, is continuing to recommend proper diets and lifestyle measures – still two of the best preventative measures of cancer. But it also requires being open to new discoveries that botanicals – possibly more than conventional drugs – can target chemo-resistant cancer stem cells that spark recurring metastasis. Even when patients respond well to conventional treatment, cancer stem cells can instigate return of tumors even more aggressive than the original condition. However, recent leading-edge research of botanical extracts and their actions on cancer stem cells may provide patients and practitioners alike with better – and truly effective – integrative treatment options.
