Can Relieve The Side Effects Of Chemotherapy
Cancer patients often turn to alternative forms of medicine and therapy when Western medicine fails to cure their cancer or relieve the side effects of their treatments. Chemotherapy, one of the most common cancer treatments, involves bombarding the body with a cocktail of toxins, poisons, and even radioactive substances in an attempt to kill tumors. Chemotherapy often causes nausea and loss of appetite in patients, resulting in weight loss and reduced rates of healing. Acupuncture was found in several clinical trials to help relieve these symptoms and allow individuals to regain their appetites after chemotherapy, but, more data is needed before Western doctors confirm these results.
