Cancer: There is no evidence that Chinese Medicine can remove cancer from the body. What we can do is help strengthen the immune system while a patient is undergoing chemotherapy or radiation. Western Medicine is capable of killing cancer but weakens the immune system. Chinese Medicine has proven itself to be effective in strengthening the body’s immune system and restoring vitality to the patient. It also helps to improve the side effects of radiation and chemo therapy like:- nausea, vomiting etc.
Chronic Fatigue: If the fatigue is not drug-related, then Chinese medicine is an excellent solution. Either the patient has too much toxicity in their system, or they are simply devoid of nutrients and low-level anemia is present. In either case, these problems can be improved using Acupuncture and nutritional counseling. An analogy we often use is one of a garden hose which has no water coming out at the nozzle. Either the hose is pinched (too much toxicity) causing a reduction in water flow, or there simply is not enough water in the hose (weakness and anemia). Even though the complaint, fatigue, is the same for both problems, the methods of fixing the problems are completely different.
