Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have been used for thousands of years to relieve symptoms, maintain health and stay well. These non-invasive medical treatments have evolved into a complete holistic healthcare system. We believe that cancer patients treated concurrently with acupuncture tend to do better. In fact, the National Institutes of Health had a consensus conference on acupuncture in 1997 and found that it was useful in treating side effects of chemotherapy, including chemotherapy associated nausea and vomiting.We believe that it is useful for increasing energy, decreasing dry mouth and relieving hormonally induced hot flashes.We believe that the treatment efficacy of conventional medicines can be enhanced when used in combination with supportive therapies such as a acupuncture, personalized nutrition plan, nutritional pharmacology, and botanical medicine.
The team at Integrative Acupuncture has been working directly with cancer patients for 7 years, as part of an Integrative team. We are dedicated to supporting each patient wherever they are in their cancer diagnosis. We work with patients in every phase of their treatment. Acupuncture and Holistic Health Care is appropriate for newly diagnosed patients as well as patients who have finished all traditional treatment and are wondering what they can do to put their health back on track.We are confident that the best cancer care strives not only to increase tumor killing potential with the prudent use of anticancer agents like chemotherapy, but also to prevent damage to healthy tissue through nutritional intervention, mind-body therapies and the use of specific supplements as directed by our Licensed Acupunctuista and registered dietitians. We will combine the best of natural medicine with modern science and modern medicine for a better overall outcome.
