Cancer Care Q&A

What is adjunctive cancer care?

Adjunctive cancer care is treatment that supports your primary cancer treatment, such as chemotherapy and radiation. At Quantum Functional Medicine, Dr. Winkler designs adjunctive cancer care plans for every individual.

The goals of adjunctive cancer care include:

  • Supporting immune function
  • Reducing chemotherapy and radiation side effects
  • Reducing your discomfort and pain
  • Secondary prevention: Identifying and treating new threats early in the disease process

Dr. Winkler uses innovative methods of supportive cancer care that can maximize your health and quality of life as you fight cancer. 

What is targeted low-dose chemotherapy cancer care?

In addition to adjunctive cancer care for conventional treatments, Quantum Functional Medicine offers targeted low-dose chemotherapy, a cancer treatment approach in which you take continuous low doses of chemo drugs. 

Traditionally, chemotherapy involves very high doses of medications for a set period of time. For example, an average chemo course may last 3-6 months, with several cycles within that time period. However, while the high dose of chemo drugs can destroy cancer, it can also cause severe side effects. 

Low-dose chemotherapy gives you the cancer-fighting drugs you need in much smaller amounts, over a far longer period of time than traditional chemo. 

With the low-dose approach, you can avoid some of the most severe side effects of traditional chemotherapy while still receiving the drugs you need to curb cancer growth. 

What kind of cancer care might I need?

Whether you choose traditional cancer care or low-dose chemo, Quantum Functional Medicine offers innovative solutions to support your health and wellness. Some of the many treatment options include:

  • Nutritional guidance and support
  • Intravenous (IV) nutrition
  • Medical grade dietary supplements
  • IV detoxification
  • Immunotherapy
  • Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF)
  • Peptide therapy
  • Oxygen therapy

Quantum Functional Medicine offers an extensive array of treatments that can improve your relaxation, ease your pain, reduce your stress, and help you fight cancer more effectively. 

Dr. Winkler tailors every treatment plan for the unique individual, always keeping your long-term health and current comfort equally in mind.
