How Alternative Medicine Can Help Prevent and Treat Cancer
Cancer is the leading cause of death and can be a very frightening disease to deal with. However, many don’t realize that there are alternative methods to prevent and treat cancer. Alternative cancer treatments can also help you cope with symptoms caused by cancer care and treatment.
Preventing cancer, in theory, is relatively simple. Eat a clean diet, exercise regularly, manage stress and avoid pollutants. However, most people are unable to commit 100% to these lifestyle choices. A naturopathic physician can help fill in any gaps and help reduce the effects of certain vices. For example, if red meat is a particularly hard food to avoid for you, a naturopath can recommend supplements to help with inflammation. Most negative food choices can be minimized with the right corresponding supplement. Or for maximum support, a naturopath can prescribe an intravenous regime. High doses of certain nutrients can support the immune system greatly and help fight off diseases like cancer.
It’s imperative to fight cancer with a multi-faceted treatment plan, because one direction of cancer care is not enough to cure this disease. This is why alternative medicine creates a treatment plan specific to each patient and his/her diagnoses. Many things must be taken into consideration when creating a treatment plan, such as cancer type, stage, overall health, lifestyle and the emotional state of the patient.
Common treatment options for cancer, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy, can be expensive and sometimes ineffective. Alternative treatment like intravenous therapies can help defeat cancer when combined with conventional medicine. For instance, research showed that patients who received combined treatment of conventional and intravenous Vitamin C therapy had a slower progression of the disease, while others stated that the side effects of chemotherapy were less pronounced.
Ozone Therapy can also be used to treat cancer. Ozone is a colorless gas made up of three oxygen atoms. It is used as an alternative therapy to improve the body’s intake and use of oxygen and to activate the immune system. In medicine, ozone therapy is used to disinfect and treat diseases by limiting the effects of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa. This creates an undesirable environment for diseases like cancer.
