Right Healing And Therapy For Cancer

The first step to managing cancer: understanding it

The news of cancer can be traumatic for patients as well as their families. Which is why, whether you are at risk of the disease or actually facing it, we are here to tell you that there is still hope to get better.
Healing begins with listening to what your body needs and making essential changes in your lifestyle. And that’s where CARER can help you get it right – with comprehensive methods, expert guidance and a whole lot of care.

In 2016, CARER started as an integrative platform to provide all the resources one might need to manage cancer effectively. Along the way, we came to realise the urgent need for personalised cancer care that is delivered with a human touch.

By 2018 CARER grew to offer its own team of nutritionists, yoga practitioners, physiotherapists and mental health counselors. With their combined expertise and experience, the platform evolved into a structured, scientifically validated program widely supported by oncologists and medical institutions.

Over time, our patients have come to trust our expertise for safe, effective cancer care – from prevention to diagnosis and in many cases, full recovery.

Using food, body and mind, CARER’s Guidebooks and Integrative Therapy programs for cancer are scientifically proven to reduce your cancer risk, improve your well-being and boost your treatment outcomes – against all odds.

OUR PILLARS OF INTEGRATIVE CARE

Conventional treatment methods that are intended to eliminate cancer cells often take away the good with the bad. With proof that cancer is predominantly a lifestyle-related condition, CARER’s lifestyle-focused therapies are aimed at resolving the root cause of the disease through three key areas:

Food is medicine, but the wrong food can impede recovery. CARER’s Clinical Nutrition protocol offers access to a personal nutritionist who empowers the patient and their caretakers with the right knowledge about cancer nutrition, a customised diet plan, recipes and nutritional advice.
