The Association for Research on Integrative Oncological Therapies (ARTOI) is a non-profit multidisciplinary organization, devoted to the study and application of cancer treatments through the integrative use of multiple therapeutic options. In combination with conventional oncological therapies, such as surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and hyperthermia, to name only a few, ARTOI offers therapeutic options such as natural and botanical products, nutrition, acupuncture, mind-body therapy and other integrative modes. The association makes available to doctors and patients the knowledge and research on methods able to reduce side effects and at the same time have a synergistic effect with conventional therapies, with the ultimate aim of prolonging the survival and quality of life of the cancer patient. ARTOI also pays great attention to the patient’s involvement in therapy and to its diet.

WHAT ARE INTEGRATIVE ONCOLOGICAL THERAPIES?
Integrative cancer therapies are the application of mental and body practices, natural products, and/or lifestyle changes in combination with conventional cancer treatments. These integrative oncology methods aim at improving the quality of life and clinical outcomes of the cancer patient and aim at enabling people to participate actively before, during and after cancer treatment.
