Acupuncture has been shown and in many cases proven through double blind studies to be one of the best adjunctive (complementary) therapies in holistically aiding the body to combat this disease. But perhaps even more important is it’s role in reducing stress and promoting well being during the roller coaster ride to full recovery. Many cancer patients benefit immensely from acupuncture’s ability to improve mood due to the release of endorphins and regulation of seretonin levels that this therapy provides. Frustration and depression both can be treated and alleviated with Oriental Medicine.
Cancer treatment in Traditional Chinese Medicine follows the Fu Zheng Gu Gen principle:
Strengthen what is correct, fortify and support the body to make it stronger and more resistant to disease.
Lao Zi said:
“Between Heaven and Earth — is it not like a bellows? When emptied, it is still inexhaustible. When activated, it wants only to continue.”
It is this basic principle that drives Oriental Medicine’s approach to holistic healing – “Restoring the Harmony” of the body. This, in turn, gives rise to inexhaustible vitality and wellness!
