What is cancer?
Cancer is a condition wherein abnormal cells grow in an uncontrolled manner throughout the body. These cells grow because the normal’s control mechanism has stopped working, and old cells stop dying and grow out of control to form new, abnormal cells. These new cells often create a tumor, which is a mass of tissue. Cancer can occur due to a number of factors, including genetics, age, and environmental risks like carcinogens.
How can acupuncture and Oriental medicine help treat cancer?
Oriental medicine and acupuncture address the cancer patient as a whole, and the treatment will be specialized to the needs of the patient, rather than the prescribed recommendations of the medical community. The focus for acupuncture and Oriental medicine is to relieve the pain a patient may be going through, which can improve a prognosis exponentially. Many patients with cancer, especially those with late-stage or terminal cancer, choose to undergo Western treatment and Oriental medicine at the same time to find a balance between their benefits.
Where does Western medicine’s approach to cancer treatment fall short?
There are many productive aspects of traditional Western medicine, especially when it comes to treatment of cancer. However, Western approaches to treating cancer can be counterproductive, as well as a limitation on therapeutic approaches. The ongoing fear of malpractice lawsuits can keep medical doctors from offering treatments that can help a cancer patient heal in alternative ways, particularly in the case of late-stage or terminal cancer patients. Western medicine often treats all patients in the same way, offering the same treatment for patients in varying states of conditions, without emphasizing communication between the doctor and patient.
