“The Textbook of Naturopathic Oncology will certainly stand the test of time as one of this century’s most important contributions to integrative oncology”
Lise Alschuler, ND, FABNO
“Using the shared standard of scientific validation and focused on the shared goal of optimizing patient wellness and outcomes, the Textbook of Naturopathic Oncology is a truly landmark contribution to oncology… Both Dr. Gurdev Parmar and Dr. Tina Kaczor are well-respected founders of the field of naturopathic oncology, established naturopathic oncology practitioners, and are sought after internationally for their clinical acumen. I can think of no others who are more qualified to offer a textbook on naturopathic oncology… Suffice it to say that this textbook will provide every practitioner of integrative oncology with a trustworthy guide to safe and effective practice. This will not gather dust on a bookshelf, but rather will become care worn, dog-eared and fingerprinted with its many uses. I know that I will have this within arm’s reach during my clinical consultations and that I will be a better practitioner because of it. I am deeply grateful to Dr. Gurdev Parmar for writing this book and Dr. Tina Kaczor for her meticulous editing. Creating this text was years in the making, and it shows.”
