Summary
While cancer causes more than one in four deaths in the UK, many cancers are increasingly chronic diseases, and holistic management is common. Up to a half of all cancer patients admit to visiting CAM providers; more use complementary therapies. Holistic health isn’t a quick fix, but many CAMs are now established, respected and effective parts of the treatment journey in cancer, and indeed many cancer drugs come from plants. This book is a balanced, informative look at how holistic methods may help in the cancer journey. Topics include:
Understanding cancer
Why does cancer arise?
Common symptoms
How holistic methods may help
Diet
CAM treatments such as acupressure, acupuncture and moxibustion, art therapy, aromatherapy,
An anti-cancer lifestyle
Spirituality and healing
How to ensure treatment is safe – never trust anyone who claims to cure cancer
