We believe that cancer patients treated concurrently with nutrition support, IV Vitamin Therapy, Acupuncture for Chemo induced nausea, vomiting, and pain are far better off.
Cancer Support & Risk Evaluation
We know that organic fruits and vegetables are expensive, but they are the best choices for cancer patients; not just because they're grown without pesticides and other agricultural chemicals, but because plants grown outdoors organically need to protect themselves from other plants, predators (insects, birds and animals) and the sun. Organically grown plants do this by producing more intense protective chemicals, known as phytonutrients, which are beneficial to us.
Seasoning food with ginger, garlic, onions, turmeric, drinking green tea, all of which have anti-inflammatory effects. If you drink alcohol, stick to red wine. Excessive alcohol consumption is a cancer risk, men who drink alcohol should limit themselves to a maximum of two drinks daily and women to a maximum of one. For women at risk for breast cancer, one drink a week is safest.
What about IM strategies to counter the side effects of conventional cancer treatment?
See a integrative medicine family practitioner that believes that cancer patients treated concurrently with nutrition support, IV Vitamin Therapy, Acupuncture for Chemo induced nausea, vomiting. For pain management we use state of the art technology, Prolozone. In fact, the National Institutes of Health had a consensus conference on acupuncture in 2007 and found that it was useful in treating side effects of chemotherapy, including chemotherapy associated nausea and vomiting. I think it may also be useful for increasing energy, decreasing dry mouth and relieving hormonally induced hot flashes. Integrative Medicine is all about supporting good.
