Reducing the Toxicity of Modern Treatments
Acupuncture of Chinese medicine is a good adjuvant therapy for reducing the toxicity of modern treatments （RTMT) such as cancer patients. In patients with cancer treated by Western medicine, acupuncture can relieve symptoms of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery, and physical discomfort during recovery.
Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy often experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, constipation, hot flashes, and insomnia. Patients may consider coordinating acupuncture treatment to relieve these symptoms. Acupuncture may even suppress these side effects.
Acupuncture has good adjuvant effects on general malaise, poor blood circulation, joint pain, skin eczema, peripheral nerve inflammation and other chemotherapy or radiotherapy sequelae. The analgesic effect is particularly remarkable. Patients can also improve their immunity through acupuncture and health care.
