Acupuncture For Cancer Patients
Our body regularly replaces cells through dividing and growing process. When a patient develops cancer, his body struggles to control it. Chemotherapy targets the cancer cells and interferes the dividing and growing process. While chemo can control the cancer cells, it also can cause some side effects, like nausea, vomiting, hair loss, fatigue and etc. Neuropathy is one of the side effects, too. For cancer patients with neuropathy, body acupuncture combined with scalp acupuncture is always my first choice. I will also integrate herbal medicine to tonify and upright the Qi. Usually patients would feel less pain and regain energy level after several treatments.
An article released from BBC News last January 21, 2020 about cancer patients trial finds acupuncture lessens chemotheraphy neuropathy.
