The Block Center for Integrative Cancer CareWe want you to know about The Block Center for Integrative Cancer Care in Evanston, Illinois. Founded 2 decades ago by Keith Block MD, an internationally recognized integrative cancer-care specialist and Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Integrative Cancer Therapies, The Center cares for people with cancer through the integration of research-based complementary therapies with conventional medicine. Dietary modulation and nutritional pharmacology are interwoven with mind-body stress strategies and hardcore allopathic medicine to maximize healing results.

Dr. Block and his team offer full, diagnostic profiling, using precise lab testing to help tailor an approach that maximizes a person’s immune function while encouraging cellular repair and regeneration. From there, they recommend supplementation with botanical compounds and hormone modulators, to help the body accelerate the process of recovery, provide preventative immune support, inhibit disease progression, enhance treatment efficacy, bolster cancer-fighting capacity and diminish the yucky side effects that often accompany chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. Care is taken to match the approach with 1) the unique biochemistry of the individual, 2) the disease itself, and 3) the treatment protocol.

In addition, the center offers a wide selection of critically important CAM therapies, such as guided imagery, yoga, physical therapy, qigong, biofeedback, hypnosis, relaxation, massage, lymphatic drainage and much more.

Both Andy Weil and Henry Dreher defer to Keith Block’s approach to integrative cancer care and nutritional know-how, and, as far as I’m concerned, that constitutes a serious, heavy duty endorsement. The Block Center is at 1800 Sherman Ave, Suite 515, Evanston, IL 60201, phone: 847.493.3040. The Website’s home page is at http://www.blockmd.com/home.html .
