Breast cancer is all too common among women (and some men) today. At Eastern Healing we provide breast cancer support to patients in Joliet, Wheaton and throughout the Chicago area in an effort to promote healing and wellness in the body while reducing the negative symptoms and side effects many patients experience when undergoing chemotherapy or other treatment for cancer. Holistic or “natural” medicine is extremely beneficial when used in support of modern or conventional medicine.
Natural breast cancer treatment may involve modalities of traditional Chinese medicine including acupuncture, herbal and plant-based medicine, dietary therapy, massage and other tools that reduce stress, promote well-being, fight depression, help balance hormones and more. Many cancer patients who are treated with chemotherapy and/or radiation experience nausea, loss of appetite, pain, hot flashes, insomnia and other negative side effects that impact quality of life.
A positive outlook is critical when fighting any type of cancer, however it is hard to be upbeat and positive when you feel like the life has been sucked out of you. Our breast cancer support is, focused on empowering your body, and promoting physical, emotional and spiritual health. Acupuncture works to reduce stress, enhance blood flow, and encourages the release of endorphins or “feel good” hormones in the brain. Chemotherapy weakens the immune system, making it even more important to adhere to a, healthy diet, and consider herbal medicine or other natural supplements to help restore mineral or vitamin deficiencies and strengthen immunity.
Natural Breast Cancer Treatment
Today, nearly all of us know someone or have a family member or friend who has had breast cancer. While it is often difficult to pinpoint the cause, this is a disease that is often hereditary or may be contributed to environmental toxins, an unhealthy lifestyle, even exposure to radiation. Natural breast cancer treatment when combined with modern medicine boosts health and immunity and helps reduce toxicity in the body, making the fight one you are strong enough to take part in. Holistic medicine takes the whole body into account; overall health and wellness is vital in overcoming any type of illness or disease. The body has an inert ability to heal itself naturally. Our services help promote healing of the body, mind and spirit in a way that is non-invasive and non-toxic.
When holistic medicine supports the efforts of traditional medicine it is known as “integrative” medicine. Oncologists across the country are recognizing the value of acupuncture, nutrition, herbal medicine and other modalities of holistic practice for improved health outcomes for patients undergoing breast cancer treatment. We tailor our treatment and therapy to the individual needs and issues of each patient, as every person who develops breast cancer has different symptoms, side effects, pain, or other issues.
Chemotherapy, radiation and other traditional treatments often leave patients weak, nauseous, tired, depressed and even unable to function normally. In fighting breast cancer, traditional medicine often takes its toll on the body and mind. At Eastern Healing, our goal is to provide breast cancer support for women in Joliet, Wheaton and throughout the Chicago area who desire to improve their quality of life and do everything possible to overcome this so they can look forward to the future.
