Alternative Mesothelioma Treatments
Mesothelioma, like other cancers, has no instant cure. Treatments kill off cancer cells, leaving patients with the hope that they do not return. Unfortunately, there are many instances in which these treatments do not work. Traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation damage cancer cells and healthy, non-cancerous cells alike. Alternative treatments aim to mediate and alleviate the pain and discomforts that come with traditional mesothelioma treatment.
Mesothelioma is an incredibly deadly cancer. Asbestos exposure has been shown to be a direct cause of mesothelioma and other health problems including lung cancer and asbestosis. If you have been diagnosed with any of these conditions, asbestos exposure may be to blame. The Mesothelioma and Asbestos Help Center is dedicated to helping people whose lives have been affected by this dangerous substance. Please take a moment to fill out our contact form if you have any questions or would like to learn more about the dangers of asbestos.
In addition to traditional medical cancer treatments, alternative treatments can help a mesothelioma patient feel more comfort and experience an improved quality of life. Many of the treatments are designed around helping patients cope with their disease in a natural way that helps relieve anxiety. Some alternative mesothelioma treatments include:
- Sound Therapy
- Light Therapy
- Dance Therapy
- Feng Shui
Many alternative treatments include exercise to help patients become more active. Even light exercise is known to promote general health and help mesothelioma patients survive longer. Many alternative treatments do not have FDA approval. However, that does not mean they cannot have an impact. Alternative treatments are designed to synergize with traditional treatments and promote health.
