Unbelievable! Patient + Doctor Testify About the Benefits of Acupuncture in Cancer Treatment
Can acupuncture play an effective role in the treatment of cancer? The doctor and patient featured in this video from CNN certainly are convinced that it can. Unfortunately, many traditional medical professionals scoff at the idea. They remain skeptical that any alternative healing practice can be effective for a serious disease like this.
For the most part, cancer centers that offer “integrative care” provide only the least controversial complementary services. Things like massage, therapy for stress reduction, and various forms of counseling are common. The very idea of considering the benefits of acupuncture, or a Chinese herbal remedy, would typically be rejected immediately.
In the USA, it isn’t unusual for oncologists to advise their patients against using any dietary supplements or natural remedies during the course of treatment. If they don’t explicitly advise against using supplements or natural remedies, they make it clear that they believe such is a waste of time. Sooner or later these attitudes will change, but for now it is what it is.
