Cancer is growing at epidemic proportions today. It is the second leading cause of death among Americans and one of the most feared diseases. Some statistics suggest that cancer has become as common as acne and male pattern baldness. With such alarming statistics, people around the world are definitely on a lookout for ways to keep away from cancer. While there are some common rules in anti cancer strategies like putting a full stop to cigarette and alcohol, it is a fact that even those who keep away from cigarettes and alcohol are not perfectly protected from begetting cancer.
Alternative medicinal techniques such as naturopathy effectively assist in preventing cancer, treating cancer and also to cope with the side effects of cancer. Certified naturopaths have been able to lower the risk of getting cancer and this typically involves certain dietary and lifestyle changes, including nutrient supplementation. Naturopathy believes in the body's intrinsic ability to heal itself when supplemented with necessary inputs such as food and exercise.
Naturopathy, in addition to helping cancer prevention, also leads to the rejuvenation of the overall health of the individual.
Many people also seek to cure cancer through naturopathy. Some others, who have been treated with allopathic medicine, also seek to cope with the side effects of chemotherapy through naturopathy. The success of naturopathy treatment in the prevention, cure and coping the disease has been immense and more and more people are resting to naturopathy treatment of this deadly disease.
Naturopathy treatment is completely safe and does not bring with it certain side effects that are common with chemotherapy. In fact many cancer people who have been treated with chemotherapy wish to cope with some of the side effects of chemotherapy such as fatigue, weight loss, hair loss, drop in blood count and other side effects. However, it is important to remember that naturopathy treatment is time consuming, at least in its comparison to allopathic treatments. However, a good naturopath, by combining other alternative healing techniques such as acupressure helps in hastening the process of recovery in the patient.
In an era where the threat of cancer looms everywhere, naturopathy has been a ray of hope in the prevention, treatment and in the recovery process after cancer treatment.
