‘Introduction to Integrative Oncology’ presents herbs, compounds and supplements, which have research and proven clinical application to support patients in cancer recovery. Many cancer patients seek out complementary treatments, by some estimates up to 80%. In many cases the solutions are either ineffective or dangerous. This Introduction to Integrative Oncology book looks only at those complementary medicines, which have research to show their efficacy as well as their application in treatment.

Daniel Weber gives a comprehensive background to orthodox Western scientific understanding of cancer biology. Studies of CAM in cancer treatment are also described in detail with both positive and negative reports clearly catalogued. The book tables a comprehensive annotated listing of CAM methods and medicinals from both ‘Western’ and Chinese practice for use both with cancer, chemotherapy and radiotherapy as well as for Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy side effects.

What practitioners have said about this book

In this book, Daniel presents a significant contribution to the use of TCM and CAM in cancer management. It is a book every integrative practitioner would want in his or her reference library”. Dr. Hilton Lowe, MBBS/MD

Chinese herbal medicine has a long history of use in oncology. Over the last 50 years it has been successfully integrated into Western oncology protocols in many hospitals and Universities in China. Daniel Weber’s research and translation of much of this literature brings important information to Western practitioners, both orthodox and complementary”. Daniel Deng, B.TCM, Ma. Acu, O.M.D., MAACMA

The occurrence of tumours is a complex biological phenomenon, which involves multiple factors, multiple bases, multiple procedures and multiple stages. This book systematically elaborates the seven stochastic events of cancer, and the close relation between inflammation and cancer.

Though the relation between inflammation and cancer is clear according to current research, the potential mechanism of inflammation’s role in cancer is still unclear, and there are still many questions left unanswered. This book explores the role of inflammation in the occurrence and development of cancers, as well as its relationship to stress, angiogenesis, cell-to-cell communication and metastasis. Especially, this book introduces the applications of Chinese herbal medicine and their compounds to cancer and inflammation, and the mechanisms, which contribute to the integration of traditional Chinese medicine and modern oncology medicine.

‘Chinese Herbal Medicine and Psychophysiology’ continues Daniel Weber’s work at integrating traditional and orthodox medicines, of bringing rational scientific understandings to ancient insights.

In this book Daniel examines the parallels between traditional medicines of the East and the emerging science of Psychophysiology. In particular, Daniel discusses the theories of vagaltone forwarded by Porges and Cozolino, and the traditional Chinese medicine concept of san jiao.

When examining psychological distress, we now understand that the psyche/soma is a multilevel system, which embraces the whole human. Daniel’s latest book contributes to the development of this new era of medicine by bringing together the best of East and West and the best of ancient and modern.

A unique approach to creating variations on classic herbal formulas. This simple yet elegant system allows practitioners to create exacting prescriptions for their patients and more precisely treat the individual patient’s needs.

The presenting problems of the modern clinic differ considerably from the theoretical training most practitioners received in their schooling. Many practitioners may find themselves limited in their ability to address these conflicting patterns. Chronic conditions and the half-treated or half-resolved conditions require a truly innovative approach to treatment.

This modular System has a complete bio-medical index, which is cross-referenced to TCM pattern discrimination. Each formula gives both Western and Chinese indications for use, discuses formula differentiation and gives Dui Yao variations. This volume is designed for daily use in a busy Health Professional’s Practice and dramatically shortens the time required to construct complex formulas. It allows fast and accurate prescribing with a high degree of confidence.

Included with the book is access to a fully searchable online version of the book,, with comprehensive background research on formulas, dui yao, and herbs for cancer treatment.
