Pre-Conference Workshop presented by Paul Anderson, ND, and Virginia Osborne, ND

A full-day workshop on intravenous therapies designed to prepare attendees with a firm foundation of how nutrients can be used for cancer care. Virginia Osborne and Paul Anderson will share techniques for orthomolecular “rehydration,” post chemotherapy and/or radiation. They will explain how a practitioner can identify a patient that is in need of special care and a quality of life, and what IV approaches can help them achieve that improved quality of life. They will identify safety and specific considerations in IV therapies for cancer patients. Their workshop will describe the use of labs and imaging in primary assessment, potential directions such as oral therapies, diet, and how to troubleshooting and reassess when the treatment program should be altered.
