Conventional Treatment for Cancer



How to use conventional treatment for cancer once it has been diagnosed.

Conventional treatment once cancer has been diagnosed is with drugs, intravenous or locally applied chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery. Complementary treatments are best used in association with conventional ones following medical advice. These are:

  • Aromatherapy with chamomile for relieving anxiety and worry
  • Reflexology for pain and nausea
  • Healing with the laying on of hands
  • Acupuncture for pain and nausea
  • A good diet with antioxidants
  • Meditation and visualization for strengthening immunity
  • Astragalus, echinacea or aloe vera

Aloe vera has been used by many sufferers to help reduce the effects of cancer. It is difficult, however, to find many scientific research projects supporting these claims. Because the development of cancer depends on the health and efficiency of the immune system, and because aloe vera can boost the immune system, theoretically it can also affect the development of cancer. It can also fight infections which are frequent in patients suffering from cancer. It is not known whether it can prevent cancer from appearing, as some of its supporters claim.

A UK pioneer in the use of complementary treatments in cancer is the Bristol Cancer Help Center, which offers a complete range of treatments and help in all areas of fighting cancer.
