Naturopathic Physicians diagnose, treat, and help prevent diseases using a system of practice that is based on the natural healing capacity of individuals.
Naturopathic oncology is the application of the art and science of naturopathic medicine to the field of cancer care and treatment.
The Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians (OncANP) is a specialty society created by naturopathic physicians who either specialize in naturopathic oncology or who desire to further their knowledge and understanding of the field.
Naturopathic Oncologists: OncANP initiated a credentialing process for naturopathic doctors in 2006. A separate and independent board, the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology (ABNO) was established that oversees the process.
FABNO: (Fellow of the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology) - Naturopathic physicians who meet standards representative of advanced experience and knowledge in cancer care are eligible for board certification in Naturopathic Oncology.
The Need for Naturopathic Oncology: Aware that modern medicine has made little advance in its War on Cancer, many people with cancer choose to also include complementary and alternative medicine in their fight against cancer.
