Cancer and Chinese Medicine
Nobody wants to hear they have cancer. Despite all of the western medical advances in detection and treatment, there is no magic bullet when treating cancer. The same can be said for Chinese Medicine. However, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicines have been shown to:
- Decrease the damaging side effects of radiation and chemotherapy
- Benefit the immune system
- Improve energy for daily activities and work
- Aid in the reduction of tumors
Many cancer patients find their quality of life greatly improves with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine while undergoing various treatments for cancer. As always, the goal of Chinese medicine is to correct any underlying imbalances in the individual and restore harmony.
