UC Health Cancer Wellness Clinic Physician Consultation
UC Health Integrative Medicine and the University of Cincinnati (UC) Cancer Center’s Survivorship Program have partnered together to form a new UC Health Cancer Wellness Clinic.
Our wellness team, consisting of experts in survivorship, lifestyle and integrative medicine therapies, will provide guidance on a comprehensive approach to patients with cancer. Our physicians will develop a holistic treatment plan that complements therapies prescribed by your oncologist.
The mind-body and social aspects of health are explored during your visit with an emphasis on self-care and prevention. The consultation will focus on a variety of options, including lifestyle modifications, nutrition, acupuncture, medical massage, meditation/mindfulness-based stress reduction, tai chi, yoga and other complementary therapies as deemed appropriate. Using an evidence-based approach, we aim to strengthen your inner self-healing capacities and help you live to your fullest potential. Depending on your needs, you may be referred to other integrative services available at UC Health.

Lifestyle Medicine Cancer Physician Consultation
Lifestyle medicine is the use of a whole food, plant-predominant dietary lifestyle, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connection as a primary therapeutic modality for treatment of chronic disease, including lifestyle-related cancers.
At your lifestyle medicine consultation, you will initially meet with your physician for one hour. They will learn about your personal, medical and family history; your dietary, exercise and sleep habits; your sources of stress and coping mechanisms; assess your health concerns and evaluate your symptoms, order any necessary tests and create mutually agreed upon lifestyle prescriptions.
Our goal is to work with you to create a personalized lifestyle self-care plan that you can implement and sustain.
