Dr. Maoshing Ni explains how Chinese Medicine can be effective in helping women suffering from cancer.
In our work, we work with a lot of patients undergoing cancer therapy, for example, breast cancer, uterine cancer and ovarian cancer, a lot of women, because we do specialize in women’s health, we get a lot of these patients and we work with many oncologists in our city here and one of the things we do is acupuncture really helps to relieve a lot of these symptoms, the side effects from chemotherapy and radiation. Fatigue is a big one. Nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, neuropathy where they have nerve damage in their fingers and their toes, constipation, I mean, the list goes on and on, you know, brain fog, they cannot, they cannot concentrate.
Well, we do in my opinion a very critical job in supporting the patients so that they suffer minimally and get rid of many of the side effects and symptoms, and more importantly we seek to support their immune system so that their immune system can be mobilized to fight, to participate in the healing process. Throughout this whole treatment, it is a wonderful collaboration of East and West where we come together and really help patients become sustained through the process of their chemo, radiation, surgery, so they can complete the program and oftentimes these patients who do this, they have, we have done some studies actually tracking this in China, the integrated approach, that they have much higher survival rate, cure rate, as well as better quality of life. So Chinese medicine is very, very important and very useful during women’s anticancer therapies.
