Integrative Medicine Assists in Chemotherapy and Recovery: Cancer Survivor Reveals


PERTH, Australia September 2014 – When symptoms of a brain tumour began to emerge, business owner, investor and director Paul Curtis was originally told that what he had experienced was an unexplained seizure. With further scans and investigations, the brain tumour was identified, and after surgery was performed to remove the bulk of it, Paul began chemotherapy treatment. As part of his recovery and to minimise the side effects of the chemotherapy, Paul saw the value of integrative medicine and sought extra assistance from Cura Integrative Medicine naturopath and herbalist, Shannon Burford.

At first, Paul found the dietary changes that Shannon recommended challenging after decades of eating the food he always loved. But even though making juices and eating more wholefood was completely new, he grew to love it. He started exercising more and incorporating new healthier strategies into his life, like riding his bike around instead of driving.

Since using integrative medicine, Paul’s health has been completely restored, and Paul and his whole family continue to see Shannon. “Shannon knows what you don’t know that you don’t know! He also knows a lot of things your doctors don’t know either,” says Paul.

“I’ve been amazed by his insights and the humble manner in which he discovers and recommends health solutions. He is someone who truly cares for your situation, who communicates really clearly and always finds a constructive way forward. We should all have a naturopath, and if you don’t have one yet, you should contact Shannon.”

Perth health professional Shannon Burford is a naturopath and herbalist. Naturopaths aid in expediting the body’s natural ability to repair and maintain optimum health. It’s the role of a naturopath to determine and eliminate obstacles to good health by assisting in creating a healing inner and outer environment. As a naturopathic doctor, Shannon tailors a personalised wellness plan for his clients, and uses an eclectic blend of mind body medicine – diet, herbs, lifestyle, testing, and nutrition – for the best results.

Naturopathy is a type of alternative medicine that employs an extensive selection of natural therapies, a holistic approach and non-invasive treatments. It holds the core idea that the body can heal itself through a special blend of alternative therapies and mind body medicine. Through his experience and knowledge, Shannon has made an impact on people experiencing allergies, asthma, depression, infertility and cancer.

Medical and natural therapy can work well together during the treatment and recovery process for people diagnosed with cancer. Those who undergo surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment may also benefit from natural and alternative therapies that can be used to complement regular cancer treatments. Whilst medical therapy physically removes and attacks the cancer, natural rehabilitation supports and reinforces the mind and the body and relieves adverse effects. Together they work well as an integrative medicine.*
