It is no secret that effective cancer treatments can be hard on the body. In this episode, my guest and I address the myth that treatment is over after the last round of chemo or radiation. There are evidence-based Integrative medicine approaches that can be used to address symptoms from conventional care and to lower the risk of recurrence.
