Next » « Previous


So called "alternative" or "complementary" treatments should only be considered in addition to medical treatments - not instead of them. There is no scientific evidence that any such treatments work on their own.

An excellent source of reliable information about each therapy and what medical evidence indicates with respect to cancer, is American Cancer Society Complete Guide To Complementary & Alternative Cancer Therapies $24.95 including shipping. (Available from or call 800.ACS.2345)

Discuss any complementary treatments you are considering with your doctor before starting them.

NOTE: Cutting edge drugs are available through clinical trials if existing treatments are not adequate. There may also be treatments in use in other medically advanced countries that may be of interest.
