I have been recently diagnosed with cancer and am undergoing chemotherapy, which causes incredible nausea. Is there anything that can help?
It has been reported that mind-body approaches to cancer have no known adverse effects, and often improve your quality of life and can calm the mind. People who receive acupuncture say that it gives them a better overall feeling of internal health and well-being.
A responsible practitioner can help establish a beneficial acupuncture treatment protocol in conjunction with your oncologist. Choosing your treatment options and utilizing whatever helps you is important. Supplementing conventional cancer therapy with acupuncture, an approach that addresses you as a whole person, can encourage the ideal outcome.
