A commonly used definition of Integrative Oncology is: “a patient-centered, evidence-informed field of cancer care that utilizes mind and body practices, natural products, and/or lifestyle modifications from different traditions alongside conventional cancer treatments. It aims to optimize health, quality of life, and clinical outcomes across the cancer care continuum, and to empower people to prevent cancer and become active participants before, during, and beyond cancer treatment.”

For patients interested only in mistletoe, Dr Tavakkoli offers a separate programme for this, which includes:
– How to make future orders for Iscador;
– Purchasing supplies (appropriate needles, sharps box etc);
– Subcutaneous injection training videos.
Fee for mistletoe programme: £250
Fee for future prescriptions for Iscador: £20

Please feel free to call the clinic if you have any questions about the integrative cancer programme or would like to know whether it is right for you.
Due to a high demand for appointments, we request that you cancel at least 48 hours before an appointment.
Late cancellation may result in appointment slots remaining unfilled if another patient cannot attend at very short notice.
Unless there are extenuating circumstances, cancellations made within 48 hours to the appointment will incur a 50% appointment fee (£175).
When sessions are booked for oncothermia and/or IVC, 7 days’ cancellation notice is required.
This is because patients travel from all over the UK for our services, and require adequate time to organise accommodation, travel arrangements, childcare etc. Cancelling these appointments at short notice does not always allow time for these arrangements and thus, the appointments may remain unfilled.
Unless there are extenuating circumstances, cancellations to physical therapy sessions without providing 7 days’ notice will incur a fee of 50% of the programme cost.
Please note that when you book appointments, you must agree to these terms.
Disclaimer: Please be aware that Dr Tavakkoli is not an oncologist. No claim can be made for cure or improvement. Your cancer treatment and ongoing care will remain under your specialist medical team.
