Herbal Therapy for Lung Cancer
Living Longer and Better

Living Longer and Better

There have been exciting news in lung cancer in recent years.  However, as a group, the 5 year survival is only 16%, not a whole lot better than 3 decades ago.  Studies show that front line chemotherapy helps more and more people.  Nevertheless, response rate is still way under 50%.  If one progresses on first line treatment, the chances of responding to a second line treatment is less that 10%.  Lung cancer patients with advanced disease do live longer, but the average survival is still about 8-12 months.

Why herbal therapy?

  • In east Asia people have used traditional Chinese herbs to fight cancer for a very long time.
  • Although no good clinical data yet, there is an abundance of preclinical evidence in cell culture and in lab animals that many herbs do have anti-tumor properties.
  • As a medical oncologist, I have provided herbal therapy to many lung cancer patients.  They report better quality of life, and some appear to live longer than their life expectancy.

Testimonial My cancer was diagnosed in Feb. of 2009.  After 18 months of chemotherapy, I became very weak.  I was in the hospital in July of 2010 for pneumonia.  I then started Dr. Sheng's herbs for the past 6 months.  I am more energetic, my quality of life is definitely better.  I have not had any more chemotherapy.  I was able to cook for more than 20 family members on both Thanksgiving and Christmas day last year with some help.
