Alternative Medicine

Alternative Medicine

Most patients when faced with the suggested treatment options of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, are not keen on getting treated. There are various other alternative medicine treatment options that are much less intimidating. However, these treatments lack scientific evidence to support their claim that it is effective for the treatment of cancer. While it may not be proven effective, there is no harm in trying alternative medicine, provided that cancer patients consult with their physicians first before beginning such treatments, as we do not want more complications to develop unnecessarily.
