Event description

Description

We will look to understand the effect of medicinal mushrooms within integrative oncology.

Integrative oncology can be defined as the evidence based combination of conventional therapy with complementary interventions. Today there is ample research on the ability of medicinal mushrooms to modulate the immune system and improve the quality of life of cancer patients.

Join us at this exclusive event to learn more about the important work being done on the impact of medicinal mushrooms in cancer including the latest information regarding the scientific research underway on the effects of mycotherapy in integrative medicine.

Learn how mushrooms can not only reduce the toxic effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy but also improve drug outcomes.

The event will include evidence based research and trials, case studies and tested protocols. Professionals will also discuss their clinical experience in supporting cancer patients with medicinal mushrooms.
