Integrative Medicine in cancer care
Lung cancer

Integrative Medicine and Patients affected by Lung Cancer

Patients with lung cancer are particularly vulnerable to heavily promoted claims for unproved or disproved “alternatives.” Integrative medicine options of care are getting increased attention in recent years by both patients and health care practitioners. Mind-body modalities and massage therapy can reduce anxiety, mood disturbance, and chronic pain. Acupuncture assists the control of pain and other side effects and helps reduce levels of pain medication required. Trials of acupuncture for chemotherapy-induced neuropathy and postthoracotomy pain show promising results.
An article in the journal Chest reviewed these options of care including some others.

The following foods might have some clues for benefit
