Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine for Cancer patients

January 5, 2012

Since I deal with many cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy, as well as surgery, and my position as Clinical Supervisor for Emperor’s College Acupuncture externs at the Roy and Patricia Disney Cancer Center in Burbank, as well as in my own Pasadena private practice, I am often asked, what can Acupuncture do for cancer patients?

My response is typically we can promote a sense of well being and quality of life, boost the immunity system, and treat naturally the signs and symptoms of those undergoing conventional treatment and their side effects, including:

Anxiety

Back Pain and Sciatica

Constipation

Diarrhea

Dizziness

Ear Pain and Ringing

Eczema and other Skin Problems or rashes

Edema

Headaches

Infections

Insomnia

Migraines

Nausea and Vomiting

Numbness and Neuropathy

PAIN of all types

Stress

Weight problems

The advantage is huge – offering patients to empower themselves in their treatment, treating side effects without additional drugs, and overall, giving them a better quality of life.
