Cancer survival rates are at an all time high. Modern medicine is finding more ways to treat and eliminate cancers of all kinds. However, as treatments become more effective against cancer itself, they become more taxing on the body and side effects are becoming more of a challenge.
Acupuncture has been proven to be an effective method in reducing and possibly eliminating some of the negative effects which accompany cancer such as nausea, vomiting, pain pre or post surgery, and increase energy which is often decreased by cancer medications. The National Institute of Health has openly endorsed the use of Acupuncture in cancer treatment.
Acupuncture is an age-old, time tested method of care which focuses on treatment of the person as a whole. Acupuncture is not a sole-treatment method for cancer. When used in conjunction with modern medicine it packs a powerful punch against the toxicity and symptoms which accompany cancer and modern medicine's treatments.
