Cancer rates are rising everywhere. The average adult in North America or Europe today has a 30 to 50% chance of being diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. At the same time, more and more people are turning to natural medicine as part of their cancer treatment and management plan. Herbal medicine can be used to significant effect across this whole continuum to support normal metabolic functions. Herbs can promote foundational or constitutional wellness, building resilience and immune functions. Herbs can also help manage symptoms such as skin lesions or neuropathy, among other benefits, and exert direct cytotoxic anti-cancer activities. In this way, herbal medicine plays a key role in the practice of holistic oncology.
Some of these approaches require professional guidance from a qualified herbalist, but the patients themselves can do a lot at home. From choosing specific foods for their anti-cancer actions to making your tea blends for managing symptoms of chemo to increasing the benefits of radiotherapy with specific supplements, herbal medicine can be used by all cancer patients to promote wellness and empower the healing journey.
