Alternative therapies for mesothelioma

Those living with mesothelioma may want to explore some alternative treatment approaches in conjunction with more traditional medical care.

Some surveys indicate than more than 70 percent of patients battling advanced cancer turn to one or more kinds of alternative therapies. One longtime mesothelioma survivor recommends the following:

-- Iscador. This is an extract from a type of mistletoe that originated in Europe. Some claim that it can reduce the size of tumors and stimulate patients' immune systems.

-- Ukrain. This is a partially synthetic compound that comes from a weed known as celandine. It's uncertain how effective it is with mesothelioma, but may improve patients' quality of life.

-- Vitamin C can be a weapon in the cancer-fighting arsenal in some cases. It is involved with producing the collagen that fights cancer metastases.

-- Astragalus membranaceus is grown in China. When the roots are from 4- to 6-years-old, they can be harvested in the spring and dried. The Chinese believe it increases energy naturally.

-- Ozone therapy is based on data that shows cancer cells don't thrive in aerobic environments. Ozone is a fungicide that also has bactericidal and germicidal properties.

It's important to note that no alternative therapies should be started without first seeking the approval of the oncologist responsible for your treatment plan. Some doctors may have reservations about their patients trying non-traditional methods, and this is something that can be explored together. Ultimately, however, the patient is at the helm of one's own treatment regimen.

Turning your claim for damages over to an experienced legal professional in Illinois allows patients to focus more fully on pressing health concerns.
