Complementary Treatment for Side Effects

Dedicated mesothelioma attorneys Williams Kherkher do not only care about your legal rights. We also want our clients to feel as healthy as possible while coping with the difficulties of cancer. Whether you are undergoing surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, or a combination of treatments, you may be facing serious side effects that almost feel worse than the disease. This article will offer advice to help you cope with them.

Your doctor will be able to prescribe your drugs to help with pain, nausea, and other problems you may experience over the course of your treatment. You may not feel that these meds are adequate, however. Here are a few tips for treatments you can try in addition to the medicine that your doctor recommends.

Acupuncture

This practice originated in China as long ago as 3000 BC. In this treatment, needles are placed in strategic places around a person’s body to relieve tension and ease pain. The needles used are very thin, and most people report moderate to no pain from them. Many mesothelioma patients use acupuncture to relieve pain after surgery or during radiation treatment.

Massage

A gentle massage can be a great way to ease the anxiety, stress and pain that most mesothelioma patients struggle with. There are many different massage techniques using a wide variety of tools, from hot stones to scented oils to nothing but the therapist’s hands. A professional massage therapist will be able to help you choose the best technique for your body.

Herbal Teas

Mesothelioma patients have reported positive effects from a variety of teas. Ginger and peppermint are each reportedly good for treating nausea. Chamomile can help with insomnia. Talk to your doctor before taking any vitamins, new herbs, or dietary supplements.
