Cancer is always a difficult diagnosis, but it is certainly not a death sentence. Combining traditional and non-traditional cancer treatment can improve your quality of life and help combat the disease. Think of it as a one-two punch. Here's what you need to know about some cancer treatment options.
Traditional cancer treatments have been used for decades and are the options most commonly prescribed for cancer patients.
Traditional cancer treatment can help to eliminate or reduce tumors within the body, but they may also come with unwanted side effects. Non-traditional treatments are designed to help ease the side effects and improve the quality of life while undergoing traditional cancer treatment.
While conventional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation remain the backbone of cancer therapy, there are many complementary therapies that can be used alongside standard treatment to improve patient outcomes. If you or a loved one are a cancer patient interested in combining traditional and non-traditional cancer treatment options, be sure to talk with your healthcare team about what options may be right for you.
During my first pregnancy, I spent a lot of time pushing pillows behind my back trying to find comfort. As the size of the baby grew, so did my discomfort. By the time she was born, I was more than ready to give birth. When I found out I was pregnant again, I was determined that I would not suffer through the same discomforts. I started researching ways to ease the symptoms of pregnancy, including back pain. I created this blog to help other expectant moms find remedies to deal with those symptoms that can be emotionally and physically draining.
