We offer acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine to patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy to reduce nausea, fatigue and discomfort of treatment. Studies indicate the effectiveness of acupuncture for the nausea that may accompany various chemotherapy agents. Research also demonstrates relief from depression, improved psychology and reduction in the perception of pain.
Recent studies verify the effectiveness of properly prescribed Chinese Herbal Formulas at reducing toxicity associated with chemotherapy. These herbs maybe used in conjunction with chemotherapy to reduce toxicity of the chemotherapy. For patients who require stronger treatment, it allows doctors to prescribe a higher level of medication without the danger and unwanted side effects.
The National Cancer Institute reported that 30 to 40 percent of cancer patients suffer peripheral neuropathy and other neurological problems as side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. These problems may be alleviated when treated in the early stages with acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. Sometimes this means treatment while undergoing chemo or radiation treatments.
The diagnosis of cancer causes a great deal of stress and can result in emotional imbalances, insomnia and depression in the patient and their family. In addition to the toxic effect on the heart of chemotherapy and radiation, fear may create both physical and emotional disorders of the heart.
Overwhelming fatigue is a common in patients undergoing Chemotherapy. Research shows certain Chinese Herbal Formulas reduce fatigue while normalize blood chemistry.
Research also indicates significant changes in red and white blood cells, interferon, Killer T Cells, eight different immuno-factors, hormones and secretions as it moves the body back homeostasis (normal functioning).
