Chinese Herbal Therapy May Help Advanced Colon Cancer

Chuck is in his early forty who has been battling advanced colon cancer (spread to the liver) for more than four years.

His cancer has progressed again recently and he is out of treatment options.  His complaints include chronic fatigue, poor concentration, sleep disturbance, heavy sensation of limbs, and abdominal bloating.  With herbal therapy specifically prepared for him, his symptoms disappear quickly.  He remains in stable conditions for months after his first visit, yet quality of life is much better.

In the past several years, I have treated several patients with advanced colon cancer with a combination of herbs and acupuncture.  On the average, disease stabilization lasts for 6-8 months.  This maybe another option which deserves further exploration besides chemotherapy and targeted therapy.
