 Management of Cancer With Chinese Medicine (View larger image)

Living with cancer can be a distressing experience both for those directly affected and for their family, relatives and friends. Integration of Chinese medicine in a cancer treatment strategy offers major advantages in dealing with commonly seen complications of the disease and in combating the side-effects of treatment by conventional medicine methods such as surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Drawing on the author's wide experience in one of Beijing's leading hospitals, Management of Cancer with Chinese Medicine provides a unique insight into the Chinese approach to treating cancer, emphasizing the roles played by acupuncture, herbal medicine, Qigong therapy and diet therapy in strengthening the body and acting synergistically with conventional medicine to radically improve the quality of life of cancer patients.
