BCCT is the most comprehensive science-informed source for integrative cancer therapies on the web.
We help you explore the best conventional and complementary cancer therapies based on your goals and values.
Complementary therapies include natural products, lifestyle therapies and more. They can help during conventional treatment, reduce side effects and improve quality of life, delay or prevent recurrence and potentially extend life.
Navigating conventional therapies, experimental therapies and re-purposed or off-label drugs is also a key part of integrative cancer care.
What are your options?
Search 91 (and counting) complementary cancer therapy summaries.
Explore handbooks on cancers. (More are under development.)
Read overviews of other cancers.
Or start with an overview of your options and the BCCT website.
Healthy lifestyle practices are a great place to start. Our 7 Healing Practices can make a real difference in fighting cancer. Research shows powerful impacts from these and other simple and inexpensive practices.
Fear, anxiety, depression, anger, uncertainty, confusion and sleeplessness are common after a cancer diagnosis. You can do a lot to reduce them, often without pharmaceuticals.
A cancer diagnosis is often isolating. We heal in community.
Where do you find others with whom you can share this experience?
The shock of a cancer diagnosis may close some doors and open others. What matters in your life may change. Religion, spirituality, love, nature and other ways of making meaning may open or deepen for you. We offer guidance—and stories.
