Dr. Boyd is a pioneer in the field of integrative cancer care, with a targeted focus on nutritional support for cancer patents.

Dr. Boyd is the founding president of the Integrative Cancer Care Research Foundation and a board member of Environment and Human Health, Inc., a nonprofit organization made up of physicians and public health professionals dedicated to the purpose of protecting health from environmental harms.

 

“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.’”

The Cancer Recovery Plan

Increase the effectiveness of your cancer treatment and live a fuller, healthier life.


Controlling weight, becoming active, and reducing stress are not simply nuances of basic well-being; they are absolutely necessary for the successful treatment of cancer. Even with the best medical care, including chemotherapy, a patient's cancer treatment can be sabotaged if these areas are neglected.
 
In The Cancer Recovery Plan, Dr. Boyd presents his proven integrative program for maximizing the effectiveness of cancer treatment. He lays out a clear, practical nutrition and exercise plan to help cancer patients lose the weight that might impede their recovery, and describes how to reduce stress with such techniques as meditation, tai chi, massage, improving sleep, and building a support network. Along the way, stories from Dr. Boyd's patients - cancer survivors - provide motivation and inspiration. Cancer is not always a hopeless disease. The Cancer Recovery Plan offers readers the hope they need.
