Cancer & Oncology
Although treatment for cancer has made significant advances, many cancer patients still experience significant symptoms associated with treatment. In order to improve quality of life, many require quality post-treatment care. Traditional Chinese Medicine offers this post-treatment care. Research shows that it improves the quality of life by relieving many of these symptoms, strengthening the body's resistance and improving the function of organs and tissues.
Below are a few treatments that can help;
Cancer & Oncology Acupuncture Treatment
Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for people experiencing certain symptoms of cancer. It can manage side effects of chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy, and hormone therapy. Most commonly, acupuncture addresses dry mouth, fatigue, constipation, nausea and vomiting, appetite, and peripheral neuropathy. Acupuncture stimulates the nervous system to release neurotransmitters, like endorphins and serotonin, which relieve pain and stimulate feelings of well-being. This stimulation also increases the amount of red and white blood cells in the body.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Various herbs have been used for cancer treatment in China and South and East Asia for thousands of years. They have been used to relieve the symptoms of cancer treatments, while also increasing the body's tolerance of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. For instance, curcumin which is found in turmeric, is the strongest anti-inflammatories found in nature. Curcumin can prevent cancer and have a positive effect on existing cancer by counteracting the network of blood vessels that feed cancer cells. Chinese Herbal Medicine has shown to reduce the toxicities of chemotherapy, alleviate it's the side effects, prevent recurrence, and improve the patient's quality of life.
