Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine has helped numerous people in the battle of cancer. This is not to say that we cure cancer, but the extra help can mean the difference between life and death sometimes, as it did in my own mother's case. My mother recovered much faster from the chemo and she regained health, energy and good spirit also much faster then anyone that she met who had the same illness and did not use complementary medicine. I attempt to work together with western doctors, not to replace them. Medical doctors are not necessarily better acupuncturists then licensed acupuncturists who completed the 4 year Masters of Science program. Also, I studied Chinese Herbal Medicine which is a big part of complementary cancer care.
