Chinese medicine helps cancer patients enjoy life after treatment

Chinese medicine helps cancer patients enjoy life after treatment image

Cancer patients can be helped by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) such as herbs, Tai chi, Qigong and acupuncture, a new study has discovered.

Cancer patients can be helped by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) such as herbs, Tai chi, Qigong and acupuncture, a new study has discovered. The therapies can lift depression, and reduce fatigue, pain, anxiety, insomnia and stomach problems.

Acupuncture and Chinese massage reduce gastro-intestinal problems, and acupuncture also reduces fatigue, especially after cancer treatment, such as chemotherapy or surgery.

Researchers at Dalian Medical University in China say there is strong evidence that TCM can reduce suffering in the cancer patient and improve the quality of life.

They looked at 67 studies, involving 6,806 patients, and although most had positive results, none could explain the physiological mechanisms at play that made TCM so effective.
