Cancer Alternative Medicine
Today, cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. While many patients receive surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation for the cure of the disease, the treatment itself may cause further side effects and morbidity. Patients receiving intensive treatments may experience a decline in quality of life due to nausea, vomiting, fatigue, lack of appetite, and so on. Integrative approach of fighting cancer expands the boundaries of conventional care by bringing together traditional tools for fighting cancer with complementary/alternative therapies. A significant and increasing cancer patient population seek out alternatives to conventional care by practitioners of complementary medicine or self prescribed alternative therapies. Yet, there are so many options out there, now you have more questions:
- Which one is for me?
- How much do I take?
- How long do I take it?
- Will it interact with my therapy?
- Do the practitioners know anything about cancer?
Integrative Medicine and Cancer Care – Tailored to your specific needs
Western medicine, through use of surgery advanced drugs and technology, offers swift cure for acute problems, but frequently fail to address the chronic diseases.
The traditional Chinese medicine, with a history of thousands of years, recognizes the importance of our intrinsic healing power. The maintenance of a natural and harmonious balance among the vital energies within our body is the key to optimal health. Many common ailments are due to insufficient levels and inferior quality of vital energy in our body. Herbs are used traditionally to restore the balance and harmony of our system.
It is dangerous to suggest that either Chinese herbal medicine or Western medicine is superior in their own right. Each has its own strengths and weakness. Clinical studies conducted in China suggest that a combination of herbal medicine with conventional treatment may increase survival and improve quality of life of cancer patients.
