Cancer Truth Note: #243
Eastern and western medicine practices can be great partners for treating cancer patients and managing side effects.
In many eastern traditions, practices like acupuncture and massage therapy are part of the medical system. In the United States these practices are becoming more respected by the medical community as helpful tools for patients. As practitioners of these interventions, we also have to respect the interventions of western medicine. These two approaches to healing can be used well together.
Whenever I meet alternative practitioners I am curious to learn how they view the work they do in relation to our western medicine practices. Do they view them as complementary or do they think their approach is better?
Have you tried a combination of eastern and western medicine?
