Post-Cancer Treatment Patient
Even though treatment for cancer is improving on a daily basis, not many efforts are going towards treating patients with severe side effects from the harsh effects of chemotherapy and such. This is because Western medicine treats only in removing cancer but does not consider the harsh aftermath of the treatment. Post-cancer treatment patients all suffer from: Malaise, diarrhea, constipation, poor appetite, abdominal distension, fever, feeling of cold, insomnia, loss of taste, body ache, stomatitis, nausea, edema, due to the side effect of chemotherapy.
Through the effective application of acupuncture and herbal medicine, we can alleviate and treat the side effects of these patients. By using natural treatments of boosting the patients’ body’s ability to heal and strengthen itself, our treatment promotes a healthier and better quality of life.
Integrative Oncology is a whole-body therapy that aims to improve quality of a patient’s life by enhancing the effectiveness and response rate of conventional cancer treatments with less side-effects. Through a multi-disciplinary approach combined with oriental, functional, nutrition, and mind-body medicine, integrative oncology is an adjunct to standard medical care such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Integrative oncology has already been widely used in few countries including the United States, Germany, and Japan for years and numerous studies and clinical research have been published.
However, the reality is that even though cancer patients are interested in accessing Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) therapy, they only get vague advice and restriction from their doctors, which leads them to listen and follow advice from people who lack medical knowledge.
It is common to get confused between Integrative Oncology and CAM. Integrative Oncology is parallel with modern medicine which is evidence-based, since it’s a combination of both conventional medicine and alternative medicine. However, it does not embrace all alternative medicine treatments, but only embrace evidence-based treatments that have been shown to be safe and effective.
