Cancer Support Therapy
Can acupuncture help cancer patients?

Yes. Dr. Ding spent over three years on cancer treatment research by using Traditional Chinese Medicine and had 4 papers published by some core TCM journals. She has successfully improved the quality of life and lengthened lifetime of thousands of patients with cancer.

Cancer is one of the most difficult diseases to be treated. It requires a combination of many therapies, which may help.
  • Western Medicine Therapy
The aim of cancer therapy is the destruction of the tumors. These are treated with surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, bone marrow or stem cell transplantation singly or in combination. As we know the side effects of these treatments are often highly debilitating and also affect our immune system.
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine Therapy
    --Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
The role of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in the curative group is in its adjunctive use in anesthesia, in post-operative pain control, and in aiding and hastening recovery from the side effects of the various therapies. Such as confusion, disturbed mentation, behavioral changes, nausea and severe constipation

Cancer hospitals in China always use a combination of both Western & Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine to treat the cancers. The whole idea is to return the body to a state of harmony and ease!

Acupuncture can help lessen the side-effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy on the body, boost energy levels and enhance a sense of overall wellbeing. Acupuncture is effective for control of pain, of local swelling post-operatively, for shortening the resolution of hematoma and tissue swelling and for minimizing use of medications and their attendant side effects. Energetic acupuncture, an approach consisting of the use of needles with electricity and moxibustion (a form of local heating with herbs imparts a sense of wellbeing and accelerates patients' recovery). In conjunction with nutritional support, its use is routinely employed in some cancer institutions.

Acupuncture is a popular complementary therapy for patients with cancer. Many individuals with cancer have turned to acupuncture because their symptoms persisted with conventional treatments or as an alternative or complement to their ongoing treatments.
