As the new publisher of Natural Medicine Journal, we are pleased to present this special issue on the important topic of oncology.

In the following pages, you will find a range of content by leading integrative healthcare practitioners including results from a prospective, observational study evaluating coffee and tea consumption and the risk of invasive breast cancer in postmenopausal women, the supplementation of vitamin D and its impacts on gastrointestinal cancers, and the benefits of antibiotics in pancreatic cancer. We also invite you to listen to the podcast interview with Aminah Keats, ND, FABNO, featuring a discussion on racial disparities in breast cancer care.

This is the first special issue under Diversified Communications, and we would like to take the opportunity to express our sincere appreciation of the authors, editorial board, and staff for their valuable time and insights to make these publications possible. We also thank our sponsors and advertisers for their ongoing support.

As an addition to our integrative healthcare portfolio, including the digital online resource Integrative Practitioner and the annual in-person conference the Integrative Healthcare Symposium, Natural Medicine Journal will remain a standalone entity and continue to produce the high-value, informative content that you’ve come to rely on. As we get to know the NMJ community, we invite you to share your feedback concerning content, including proposed topics and preferred formats. We would love to hear from you at editor@naturalmedicinejournal.com.

Lastly, please share this special issue with other colleagues who may find this material of interest to meet the evolving needs of their patients. We thank you for your continued support of Natural Medicine Journal and to integrative, whole-patient care.

Kind regards,

Liz Plizga

Group Vice President
