Adjunctive therapy is performed alongside your primary cancer treatments. It is a supportive approach that is designed to improve your long-term health and promote a positive prognosis.
Understanding adjunctive cancer therapy
When our functional medicine specialists perform adjunctive cancer therapy, our goal is to:
- Promote healing
- Restore optimal balance to the body
- Prevent damage to the heart, brain, nerves and vital tissues during chemotherapy and radiation
Restoring balance during cancer treatment
When an inflammatory process sets in, the body can quickly become out of balance. If this continues for years without intervention, changes can develop that give way to cancerous cells.
At Angel Longevity Medical Center, we focus on restoring your body’s natural, balanced state, which can help you win the fight against cancer.
To begin, we will thoroughly evaluate your body for:
- Detoxification issues
- Heavy metals
- Hormonal imbalances
- Problematic diet
- Environmental toxins
- Genetic predisposition
- Inflammatory markers
Based on this assessment, we will identify the factors that are contributing to and exacerbating your disease. From there, we can re-establish a healthy balance with a custom blend of holistic therapies, lifestyle changes, and dietary modifications. All of these approaches are intended to complement your primary cancer treatment – which may include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.

The cancer-fighting team: The professionals you need in your corner
Winning the fight against cancer requires a comprehensive approach that takes into account all aspects of your wellbeing. As such, you will need the following medical professionals on your team:
Your radiologist uses technology to assess the size of your tumor and the stage of your cancer. He or she can also determine whether the disease is progressing or in remission.
Your oncologist focuses on treating cancer with chemotherapy.
Your surgeon is responsible for removing tumors from the body.
Functional medicine specialist
A functional medicine specialist, like our physicians at Angel Longevity Medical Center, supports your cancer treatment by correcting the underlying imbalance that allowed the disease to flourish. They perform adjunctive therapies that can protect your body and prevent damage to your vital organs during chemotherapy and radiation.
The treatment experience What to expect during adjunctive therapy for cancer
If you or a loved one has received a cancer diagnosis, adjunctive therapy can be extremely beneficial.
At Angel Longevity Medical Center in Los Angeles, we will work in conjunction with the rest of your cancer-fighting team – including your radiologist, oncologist, and surgeon – to help treat the disease, prevent a recurrence, and support your body throughout this journey.
During treatment, we may recommend administering supportive nutrients directly to your bloodstream via an IV to:
- Protect your organs during chemotherapy and radiation
- Detoxify the body after receiving toxic medications
- Enhance the efficacy of your primary cancer treatments
Depending on the type and stage of your cancer, we also offer a number of other therapies that can help you prevent the disease from progressing, heal after surgery, and avoid common treatment side effects. These will be discussed in detail during your initial consultation.
