Yes, Cancer Sucks!
Find out how Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine can help…
First and foremost, getting a timely diagnosis is most important. I have patients often say to me, ” I hate going to the doctor” or “My doctor does not help me anyway”. We all have had those moments where we were frustrated with our health care professionals, but don’t let that stop you from having a health concern checked out by your doctor.
In the beginning stages of your treatments, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicinal Herbs will help keep your immune system strong. How does this work?
Acupuncture will help to balance your body’s neurological and meridian systems to help prevent or decrease the intensity of the possible side effects from the treatments. Acupuncture, as well as Chinese Medicine, will help with any pain post-surgery, and help to detox your body of the anesthesia from surgery. They will also help improve your mental and emotional well-being for the path ahead. Acupuncture will improve your immune system and have you strong and ready for your treatments!
Are you wondering how this can improve your immune system?
Acupuncture has 12 main meridians. Each meridian has many functions that they govern over such as: organ functions, neurological functions, emotions, bones, muscles, etc…. 80% of your immune system is in your GI tract. Acupuncture will help balance your GI tract to support your immune system. Even if you do not have digestive issues that you know of, if you poop twice a day, and even if your cancer is nowhere near your GI tract- a strong immune system is key to staying healthy while undergoing treatments.
Acupuncture will help to keep your GI tract healthy, support your immune system, and help you stay on the path to recovery.
At TCM Wellness Acupuncture Clinic we offer more than Acupuncture, here are four tips to follow while undergoing treatment and during recovery.
◊Wash hands before preparing your food
◊ Cook your meat products well – avoid rare cooked meat or raw meat (sushi included)
◊ Do not microwave your food, microwaves strip away the nutrients of the food
◊Avoid dining out- the nutritional value is very low, fast food will affect the “GOOD” bacteria in your gut needed to fight against infection, and fast food will cause inflammation which can cause respiratory health issues.
At TCM Wellness Clinic we are here to help you before, during, and after your cancer treatments.
