Cancer was the second leading cause of death in 2020 and outside of chemotherapy and radiation there still are few options conventionally. In this episode we talk about how prognosis and quality of life are improved when combining Naturopathic and conventional medicine.
IN THIS EPISODE: I interview an esteemed colleague, Dr. Gurdev Parmar.
Dr. Gurdev Parmar is co-founder and medical director of the largest integrated health care facility in Canada, the Integrated Health Clinic (IHC). He is licensed in both British Columbia, Canada and Washington State, USA. IHC was chosen as one of seven original clinics to participate in the Canadian and U.S. Integrative Oncology Study (CUSIOS), an ongoing, multi-clinic, prospective trial. Dr. Parmar has also completed an eight-year retrospective study on his treatment approach, which has been presented internationally, and has recently been published by Cambridge Scholars.
Dr. Parmar is residency director and primary teaching supervisor of a naturopathic oncology residency at IHC, a CNME-approved post-doctoral training facility for Bastyr University. Dr. Parmar established locoregional hyperthermia treatment in Canada in 2009, and in 2018, he was nominated President of the International Clinical Hyperthermia Society (ICHS). He has served on numerous boards over the years, including the OncANP Delphi Panel, with the resulting document published in Integrative Cancer Therapies. Dr. Parmar writes and lectures internationally on a wide variety of topics, including clinical hyperthermia, the tumour microenvironment, and integrative cancer care. He has served on the editorial board of several medical journals and is the Lead Author and Editor-in-Chief of the Textbook of Naturopathic Oncology: A Desktop Guide to Integrative Oncology, as well as the Pearlz Clinical eBook Series.
