8. Complementary Therapy
It has become common for some breast cancer patients to consider implementing a holistic treatment while undergoing conventional treatments. The goal of complementary therapies is to improve a person’s overall health by relieving the toxic effects of stress and emotional components associated to the disease. These at-home remedies may include besides healthy dietary changes and exercise, vitamins, and the use of essential oils, to name a few. Techniques like acupuncture and massages might have lasting, positive effects. Complementary therapies may not cure breast cancer, but they can attenuate symptoms, ease the adverse side effects of the drugs, and improve the patient’s quality of life. Make sure you discuss any avenues of complementary therapy you wish to explore because certain natural products may interact with pharmaceutical drugs.
