Acupuncture Cancer Treatment
There are a couple of main ways in which using acupuncture cancer treatment for cancer patients can bring benefits.
Firstly, studies indicate that acupuncture treatment decreases the amount of pain suffered by patients suffering from cancer. This will help the patients to go off pain medication or decrease the dosage of pain medication.

A note about Acupuncture Cancer Treatment
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. Taking these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of certain holistic remedies.
Similarly, studies also suggest that acupuncture reduces nausea and vomiting in cancer patients post chemotherapy. It has been found to be extremely effective in decreasing vomiting when compared to nausea.
Other associated symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment that acupuncture provides relief from include persistent cough, chest pain, anxiety, night sweats, dry mouth, depression, and fluid retention in the upper and lower extremities.
Findings show that patients suffering breast cancer also benefited from acupuncture treatment by experiencing high energy levels, increased sex drive, and also an increased sense of wellness.
Acupuncture cancer treatment during various stages of the disease
In situations where there is early detection of cancer, acupuncture for cancer treatment can control and facilitate regular and normal body functioning. Studies conducted on animals indicate the ability of acupuncture to strengthen and boost the immune system thereby producing healthy and normal functioning cells. This particular function will be beneficial in counteracting cancer treatments like radiation and chemotherapy where both normal and abnormal cells are destroyed. Also, acupuncture brings about a sense of relaxation and relief from physical and emotional pressures.
In the second stage of cancer where the tumor has been formed, acupuncture can be conducted both pre and postoperativerly in addition to surgery, radiation or chemotherapy to help patients recovery quickly since it has been noticed that recovery time is shorter in patients who underwent acupuncture treatment before and after cancer treatment. Side effects of cancer treatment also are known to reduce considerably because of acupuncture treatment.
In advanced stages of cancer, acupuncture could be used along with other forms of cancer treatment to decrease the sensation to pain. This will help them decrease their pain medication intake, thereby reducing the levels of toxicity caused by pain medication.
Thus, depending upon the stage of cancer and in an attempt to provide pain relief and relief from associated symptoms of cancer and side effects arising from the treatment of cancer, a supplementary acupuncture cancer treatment could be considered.
Do note that, generally, we do not endorse the conventional cancer therapies of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. They only target the tumor, and totally fail to address the various causes and circumstances leading to the development of cancer. Even then, their results are miserably poor.
Having said that, using only an acupuncture cancer treatment is very unlikely to be good or strong enough. We urge cancer patients to undertake a holistic approach to battling the disease, which include in particular wholesale lifestyle and dietary changes.
