Naturopathy For Cancer: Weighing The Pros And Cons
Claiming more than a million lives worldwide every year, cancer still remains the world's most feared diseases. New drugs and treatments could not tarnish its sheen of threat, and that's probably why everyone is looking around in newspapers and the internet to find that one single cure that makes cancer go away.
Fantasies aside, though, there's no single one-size-fits-all drug or medication to treat cancer. For every different case, there's a different treatment.
Over the years, the use of alternative medicine practices such as Ayurveda, Homeopathic medicine, TCM and Naturopathy has been gaining an increasing popularity all around the world, probably due to their lower risk of side effects and their easy, non-invasive approach.
Naturopathy in particular, is being used as a treatment for cancer all over the world, which is why skeptics have probably lost interest with this one. Naturopathic practices work by changing the basic lifestyle of the individual suffering from cancer, suggesting different healing foods to be incorporated in the diet, and encouraging moderate physical activity.
Naturopathy works on the basic principle that the vital life force energy, which flows through all living beings and keeps us all alive, is responsible for the health or disease of an individual. A healthy life force energy keeps the body functioning properly and keeps one fit and healthy. A disturbance or interruption in the flow of the energy, on the other hand, causes disease and imbalances in the body.
Treatment for cancer patients may be done effectively using naturopathy; however, most of the time, naturopathy is used for lowering the intensity of the after-effects of cancer treatments. End-stage cancer patients, or those undergoing aggressive cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery have a significantly lowered immune response, and often turn fragile and weak due to the violent nature of the treatments. To combat this, naturopathic practices are often used to restore the healthy flow of vital life force energy flowing within the body, thereby strengthening the immune system, and helping the body naturally fight cancer.
Yet another approach, which most modern scientists particularly believe is that naturopathy works by aiding the elimination of toxins from the body, thereby lowering the risk of individuals having a family history of cancer, and also strengthening the body from within and naturally stimulating the body to fight cancer.
Belive it or not, physicians and oncologists have noticed shrunken tumors and reduced metastasis of cancer after the patients have undergone naturopathy as a part of their cancer treatment process.
Naturopathy makes use of various sub-therapies specialized according to the cancer patient's requirements, such as botanical medicine, physical medicine, diet therapy, color therapy, acupuncture and more.
Most of these therapies already have a valid scientific basis, and have caused a positive change in many cancer patients.
Looks like the age-old therapies are finally making a comeback!
