Mesothelioma Alternative Therapy

In recent years, patients and medical researchers have both taken an increased interest in alternative therapy – treatments that fall outside the realm of conventional medicine. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be interested in some of these options. For some patients, alternative or complementary treatments can have many benefits, often without harsh side effects.

It is very important to note that alternative treatments have not been shown to cure mesothelioma. However, they can be useful in many ways for some patients. Some choose to use alternative treatments alongside chemotherapy, radiation, or whatever else their doctors recommend – a practice known as complementary medicine. Other patients with untreatable illnesses rely solely on alternative medicine to relieve their pain.

Common Alternative and Complementary Therapies

Mesothelioma is a painful condition that can severely interrupt your life. In addition, even the treatments for it often have very uncomfortable side effects, including fatigue and nausea. Many patients have reported reductions in these symptoms through the use of alternative or complementary mesothelioma treatments, such as:

  • Mesothelioma Nutrition: Diet is a large concern for many mesothelioma patients and the doctors who treat them. Eating well can be a real struggle while coping with the effects of cancer and its treatment side effects. Fortunately, there is a good deal of information available for patients who want to receive the nutrients they need through dishes and products that are not too difficult to eat.
  • Acupuncture for Mesothelioma: Some cultures have been using acupuncture to treat a variety of ailments for thousands of years. This practice involves gently inserting thin needles into certain areas of the body to relieve various symptoms. Many mesothelioma patients have used acupuncture to relieve pain, nausea, and stress.
  • Holistic Medicine for Mesothelioma: Holistic medicine is based on the theory that physical, emotional, and spiritual health are closely tied together. These treatments focus on caring for the body and mind as a whole, rather than focusing on one medical problem while ignoring other issues.

These are just a few examples of non-traditional treatments for the symptoms of mesothelioma. Massage, herbal treatments, pet therapy, and more are options that may be worthwhile for you to explore. Contact the mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Hart today with any questions you may have.
