The present work aimed to identify in the literature the productions that address the subject of integrative and complementary practices in oncologic treatment. It is a bibliographical research narrative with a qualitative approach. From the results obtained, two thematic axes emerged, being them: religious beliefs and their influence on cancer treatment and the need for studies on practices integrative and complementary. This study highlights the demand for alternative means directed towards beliefs, but without professional guidance. It should be noted that impediments occur to the routing of these practices due to the absence of scientific evidence and lack of professionals capable. It is noticeable that family members often look for alternative practices.
