INTEGRATIVE CANCER SUPPORT
One of the most important things you can do to help your fight against cancer is to regain as much control as you feel you are able to handle.
The focus of our integrative cancer support programme (also known as integrative oncology) is to improve results of conventional treatment (e.g. radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy) by improving diet, adding supplements and complementary therapies (acupuncture, meditation, reflexology)
By taking an integrative approach, the whole body is supported whilst undergoing medical treatments and research shows how this positively affects outcomes of treatments side effects and better protected against what can be debilitating side effects.
The Bertram Clinic’s Integrative Cancer Support Programme is a nutrition-based multi-step approach, based upon Gillian’s personal experience of using nutrition and lifestyle interventions alongside standard cancer treatments to overcome malignant brain cancer.
What to expect
Gillian encourages you to take control of your healthcare decisions, your choice of treatment, and is there to empower you with knowledge so that you can feel confident that you are doing everything in your power to support your health and live a long and healthy life.
Through her experience, Gillian truly believes that taking control can improve your chances in three main ways:
• You can make better treatment choices – this means choices that are best for you, your body and your circumstances.
• You can achieve better results.
• You have the opportunity to gain an inner source of strength and courage as well as a psychological edge.
Who can benefit?
Wherever you you are in your journey with cancer, it is never too late to start using nutrition and lifestyle medicine to improve your quality of life and well-being.
Almost everyone at any stage in life can benefit from this programme, but especially if:
- You’ve just been diagnosed with cancer.
- You are undergoing cancer treatment.
- You have had treatment but are experiencing a recurrence of cancer.
- You have been told there are no other treatment options available for you.
- You are in remission and wish to prevent recurrence and continue to live a long and healthy life without fear of recurrence.
Consultations and Commitment
We offer one-to-one support, over a minimum of 3 months. Your investment in the programme is £450 per month which includes four sessions per month, with continual contact via email and whatsapp. You will benefit from a 20% discount for all nutritional supplement recommendations.
Integrative cancer care is personalised care. Gillian’s approach uses one-on-one appointments, in depth analysis and advanced testing to help you uncover your imbalances which may be holding you back from achieving vibrant health.
The Bertram Clinic of Nutrition’s Integrative Health Programme requires a minimum commitment of 12 weeks, and can be extended for a further 3, 6 or 9 months, based upon individual needs. Single appointments may be requested but are not advised due to the complexity of chronic health issues, and most people will benefit from a longer term approach to achieve their best possible health outcomes and prevent long-term chronic illness.
All appointments take place online during the COVID-19 pandemic
Blood tests may be recommended to clarify underlying causes, nutritional deficiencies and functional imbalances. Gillian, as a fully qualified phlebotomist, takes care of her London based clients’ blood tests in the comfort of their own home or office.
