Oncofertility bridges the studies of oncology and reproductive medicine to expand fertility options for cancer survivors. Many cancer treatments effect the ability to conceive, but there are options.

Whether you're looking for help figuring out your path, looking for support while undergoing cancer treatments, or are in remission and ready to get pregnant, The Cancer Wellness Center and its sister clinic, Sage Acupuncture are able to help guide you through the process. We work integratively with your physicians to give you the best care possible.

Acupuncture benefits cancer and fertility patients by relieving side effects of treatments, like nausea, headaches, pain relief, and stress management as well as helping to balance hormones, reduce inflammation and prepare the body to support a healthy pregnancy.

Along with regular physical exams with your doctor and mammograms, regular breast self-examination is a helpful tool we can use to screen for breast cancer.

When and how often should self-exams be done?
Once a month, about a week after your period has ended and your breasts are no longer tender or swollen. If you don’t have a period, pick one day per month, and mark it in your calendar. Over time, a monthly check will help you get familiar with your breasts, so you’ll recognize when something is different.

When to call the doctor:
Most breasts have some lumps, however if you find any suspicious lumps or changes described above, don’t hesitate to call your doctor.

Have you done your self-exam this month?

When meeting with your cancer care providers, it can feel overwhelming. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out what questions to ask and then remembering all of those questions while at your appointment and answers afterwards.

We suggest bringing a list of questions so you don’t forget them and write down the answers your given, so you can review them at a later time as well. If you are able to, bring someone with you to your appointment and assign them with taking notes and listening to the doctor. They may be able to help clarify or catch things you may miss.

What questions to ask is another matter. These are some questions that may be helpful to you…

• How do I contact my doctor, and who should I call first if I need something?

• What type of cancer do I have? Is it common in people my age?

• What are my treatment options?

• What clinical trials are available for me?

• What changes should I expect in my body because of the cancer? Are any of these changes permanent? And how can I cope with these changes?

• How will cancer treatment affect how I feel or look?

• How can I feel better, or avoid feeling worse?

• Will I be able to work during treatment? Or should I plan to take time off?

• Should I consider taking a medical leave from work?

• Will I be able to go back to work after treatment?

• Are there any restrictions or limitations once I go back to work?

Does cancer run in your family? Hereditary cancer means that a person was born with a genetic mutation, or change, which makes this person at a greater risk of a cancer diagnosis. Hereditary cancer may also be called familial cancer or cancer in the family.


Information from your family’s cancer history may help your doctor determine whether you or others in your family may benefit from genetic counseling and testing. You should always share your health history with your doctors and re-review it with them at different stages of cancer treatment.

Have you collected your family cancer history yet?

For those of you suffering from chemo-related nausea, here are a few tips to get through it.

✅ Have a light snack every few hours. You may think eating makes it worse, but having and empty stomach can actually cause nausea to get worse. Try food like fruit or oatmeal, which are easier to digest.

✅ Avoid strong odors. Even if they are good ones, strong odors can trigger nausea.

✅ If it gets really bad, ask your doctor about anti-nausea medication. It could make the difference.

✅ Have acupuncture treatments. Research has shown that acupuncture can alleviate nausea and stimulate appetite.

It’s ice cream season and we have a delicious version that happens to be free from dairy, gluten and added sugar. It’s super easy to make and provides a cool, creamy option for those who may be having mouth sores, nausea, and other cancer treatment related issues. Bon appétit! 🍌🍦

Ingredients

🍌5 slightly overripe bananas (about one banana per person)

🥜2-4 tbsp nut butter (optional)

Instructions

🍦Slice the bananas and place them in the freezer until frozen, at least 2 hours.

🍦Place frozen banana slices in a heavy duty blender or food processor. Blend, scraping down the sides as needed until it’s a creamy texture.

🍦If adding a nut butter do that now and blend until incorporated. Alternatively, you could gently stir the nut butter into the “ice cream” to create a ripple or swirl effect.

For soft serve style, serve immediately. For a harder “ice cream,” place in a covered container and freeze. Let sit out for a few minutes to soften slightly before serving.

It’s ok to not be ok!

Did you know that the effectiveness of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is well documented to treat depression and anxiety? In addition, The World Health Organization (WHO) and National Cancer Institute lists many ailments that are successfully treated with acupuncture by releasing proteins, hormones, and brain chemicals that control a number of body functions. It is proposed that, in this way, acupuncture affects blood pressure and body temperature, boosts immune system activity, and causes the body’s natural pain killers, such as endorphins, to be released.
