III Oral Cancer Support
(64 year old female, Supervisor at Major Ins Co for over 37 years
prior to Retirement 2007).
"I was diagnosed with Stage III oral cancer in Sept of
2010 and began Acupuncture treatments with Chung-Hu Tao after
an initial surgical procedure in October of 2010 to assist with
relaxation. I was also treated with herbs that were known to assist
with cancer treatments. Both treatments were of great assistance
in 2010, I was given 7 weeks of targeted radiation to attempt
to eradicate any lingering oral cancer. During this time I used
Acupuncture on a weekly basis along with herbs and Chinese teas
to sustain my energy level during the final weeks of my treatments
when my throat was so sore I was unable to swallow. The treatments
allowed me to complete my radiation treatment without a feeding
tube being inserted for my nourishment.
continue to use acupuncture and herbs to help relieve the lingering
side effects of the radiation treatments.
While I have always used and relied on traditional Western medicine,
I believe that the alternative treatments I received were crucial
in helping me cope with the effects of my cancer treatments."
