What is the art involved in developing a personalized seamless IO approach that marries traditional local therapies with other complementary therapies from other traditions? In this podcast, Judith Lacey interviews Prof Ben Arye exploring the overlap between integration of traditional Medicines of the regions we work in and the more well-established complementary therapies from other traditions such as traditional Chinese medicine, yoga ( ayurvedic medicine, and other fields). Can we integrate traditional practices, herbs, and foods into holistic integrative oncology care? We also look at embedding research into clinical care and the developments of the global task force for the Society for Integrative Oncology and the vision of how we develop a global community in this rapidly growing and important field of cancer care. Prof Eran Ben Arye, director of Integrative oncology service in Haifa and the Western Galilee service, Israel, former chairperson of the Israel Society for complementary medicine, primary researcher for IO in the middle east cancer Consortium (MECC) and member of the board of Society for Integrative Oncology. Prof Ben Arye has published extensively in the field of Integrative oncology and co directs the SIO international and online taskforces and is a leader in the field. He works in the unique setting with a multicultural team in a multicultural community in the north of Israel working with Jewish and Arab populations and learning from their traditions of healing and the role of medicinal herbs and food in supporting patients living with cancer.
