“Become the Creator of Your Own Health”
By understanding and addressing issues that patients with cancer see as important, compassionate care can be tailored to each patient, and oncology will reach the noble goal of treating each patient as a person with cancer, rather than treating only the cancer in a patient.
Managing Drivers of Cancer
Carcinogenesis is a dynamically complex process driven by dysregulated metabolism which is as central to carcinogenesis. Metabolic coupling between tumour cells and stromal cells occurs if the tumour microenvironment is like a unhealed, inflamed wound with inherent proliferative and invasive components. There are lifestyle, nutrient and botanical strategies that can lessen the metabolic drivers of cancer.
Daniel provides a personalised platform for Integrative cancer approach with abundance of wealth in the form of clinical expertise and experience, helping to reduce those metabolic drivers. Understanding to components of the tumour microenvironment that influences carcinogenesis and tumourigenesis.

Integrative oncology provides patients with safe options for combining conventional cancer treatment with natural and supportive therapies. The goal of this collaboration among multi-disciplinary health care providers is to best support optimal health and well-being: physically, mentally and emotionally.
Integrative oncology, the diagnosis-specific field of integrative medicine, addresses symptom control with nonpharmacologic therapies. Known commonly as “complementary therapies” these are evidence-based adjuncts to mainstream care that effectively control physical and emotional symptoms, enhance physical and emotional strength, and provide patients with skills enabling them to help themselves throughout and following mainstream cancer treatment.
Within this model of integrative oncology, all providers work together to improve quality of life. Patients benefit from a coordinated approach to care as Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) collaborate with conventional providers at all stages:
- At the time of diagnosis: to prepare the patient physiologically and mentally for what lies ahead.
- During active treatment: to reduce side effects and potentially improve response to conventional care.
- Post-treatment: to help with recovery and support prevention of recurrence with healthy lifestyle education.
Medical oncologists, surgeons and radiation oncologists focus their conventional, standard of care treatment on targeting tumour eradication.
Daniel combines complementary therapies with mainstream oncology care to address his patients’ physical, psychologic and spiritual needs by practicing integrative cancer care using natural and supportive therapies to reduce side effects, to help optimize conventional care, prevent recurrence and educating how to implement an evidence based life-style medicine into patients life. He beliefs that it is very important to involve his clients in their healing journey, teaching them life-style medicine skills where they can become the creator of their on health.

I have been extremely well cared for and any questions I have had are taken seriously and considered carefully – I feel like I am in a partnership toward my wellbeing.Kate Bills
“I as diagnosed with stage IV Brain Tumour, I have really enjoyed Daniel’s approach to healing. His approach helped me to tap into body innate ability to heal. The lifestyle medicine changes are wonderful, it helped me to stay on the path to healing, instead of getting stuck in negative rumination, that doesn’t help me at all.
Daniel has given me a more positive and calm approach to my healing journey, including lifestyle medicine advice, that I can incorporate into me daily routine to enhance my recovery. His education towards mindfulness has encouraged me to be more hopeful and less fearful in everyday life, also integrate and digest my emotions in the way that supported me.
Thank you Daniel”

I first met Daniel at a 5 day cancer retreat at Yarra Valley Living Centre shortly after I had been diagnosed with Breast Cancer . At that stage, 3 months after my diagnosis, I had had a lymph node biopsy, a mastectomy, DIEP flap surgery and I was 6 weeks into 6 months of chemotherapy. After my diagnosis, I was looking to learn as much as I could about my cancer, its effect on my body and more than anything what I could do to help myself and live well going forward. Daniel was instrumental in my journey . His professional and personal experience, his deep belief in the power of the body to heal itself given the opportunity and his kind, nurturing approach instilled a confidence in me that has set me on a life changing path of discovery and learning. With his help, I now know that there is so much I can do to enable my body to continue to heal itself and live well. I have embraced an organic whole food diet and practice yoga and meditation not because I think I should but because I want to. I’m excited for the future. I would highly recommend his guidance.Leesa McDonald
