Traditional Western medicine treats breast cancer – the most commonly occurring cancer in women with some combination of surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. Few doctors’ council their patients to use complementary modalities and some forbid their use. However, complementary therapies in the form of agents or activities that minimize exposure to toxins, detoxify the body, strengthen the immune system, increase cellular energy, promote circulation, reduce inflammation, alleviate pain and create a hostile internal environment for the growth of cancerous cells without damage to normal healthy cells have been shown to enhance survival and reduce morbidity of cancer patients. Some of these complementary modalities are presented here as options for both oncologists and patients to consider.
