For those interested in late breaking research and clinical pearls in naturopathic oncology I feel compelled to let you know about two opportunities this month.
First, the OncANP conference is coming up this weekend in Phoenix. Jacob Schor has recently sent out a post outlining the quality of speakers from our community as well as prominent thought leaders in fasting, ketogenic diets, copper reduction, and IV Vitamin C, among many other topics. This year, we will have Dr. Seyfried, author of Cancer as a Metabolic Disease
, as one of our invited guest speakers. Oh, and Heather Greenley, ND, PhD, will also be speaking. For those not up to date, she is the new president of the Society of Integrative Oncology
(SIO)... (Yes, an ND is the head of this research minded integrative organization. wha-ho!!) There are too many great speakers to list here, so check out the website for more info: www.oncanp.org
. Last, I have to mention that reviews of years past have been stellar, and this year we have raised the bar. (19 hours of CE in one weekend? Yes, we did.)

Second, there is an upcoming special oncology issue of the Natural Medicine Journal (www.naturalmedicinejournal.com
). If for some reason you do not already get this in your email box, then use the link to sign up- it's free! (no worries, your email is never distributed.) In this special issue, our own Paul Anderson and Michael Traub give an update on IV Vitamin C protocols in cancer care. There is an interview with Heather Zwickey, PhD, regarding immune function and chemotherapy. And the ever opinionated triad that includes Jacob Schor, Lise Alschuler and myself have commentaries on recent research publications. In short, I dare you to read this issue without learning something.
That's my (somewhat) public service announcement. For full disclosure: I am the senior medical editor of Natural Medicine Journal, and a member of the speaker committee for the OncANP. I hope you enjoy the content of both of these educational offerings!
