“What integrative cancer care should be doing is integrating knowledge from all aspects of medicine and health – epidemiology and public health, nutritional medicine, endocrinology, as well as oncology and complementary medicine – into the care of cancer patient. The key is not to think ‘outside the box,’ but to create a ‘bigger box.’”
- Dr. Barry Boyd
