Alternative Treatments for Breast Cancer

8

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in women. Most women understand the importance of knowing about this type of cancer and finding out early if they have it or if they are at risk of contracting it in the future. It’s also important to be aware of all the options available when it comes to treatment, as finding the right treatment will go a long way in fighting breast cancer effectively.
Because the earlier breast cancer is detected, the earlier and more effective treatment will be, the first step is prevention and screening. A monthly breast self-exam is the easiest way to screen for breast cancer. This can be done at home after getting the proper instructions from your doctor. With this type of self-examination, special attention is paid to any changes in the breast: changes in color or size, the appearance of lumps or bumps, and pain or tenderness in certain areas. As soon as any of these problems are identified, you should notify your doctor or gynecologist immediately. They can then order further tests to confirm if it is indeed cancer.
A mammogram, which is usually recommended for all adult women, is another way to screen for breast cancer. The age at which you start mammography depends on your risk factors for developing breast cancer. The procedure also helps detect changes in the breast, such as B. the formation of tumors or cysts.
There is a possibility that the tests described above will result in a positive diagnosis of breast cancer. Should this scenario ever occur, it is important NOT to give up hope. Unlike in the past, there are now a wide range of treatment options available. The first to be offered will most likely be the traditional treatments. These include chemotherapy, radiation, hormone therapy, and mastectomy. However, these are risky, invasive and often have serious side effects.
It’s important to realize that there are now options beyond these traditional cancer treatments. There are a number of holistic approaches. There are now even clinics that cater to people looking for alternative treatments for breast cancer. Should you choose this option, you must first find a doctor to support you. Having the guidance of a licensed physician to oversee your care remains a must. Finding someone willing to try other treatment modalities will make the process easier and safer for you.
Diet is increasingly recognized as a way to treat breast cancer and its symptoms. This includes certain food types, vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Haelan is a type of liquid soybean extract that has been shown to help block the blood supply to cancer cells, boost the immune system, and reduce the size of tumors. Another is flaxseed oil, which is credited with slowing the growth of cancer cells and improving the health of the immune system. Removing certain things from a person’s diet has also been shown to help. For example, studies have shown that a low-sugar diet can help prevent cancer or stop cancer growth. Transitioning to a low-sugar diet may also help “starve” cancer.
Electronic or magnetic therapies are modalities that also show promise in the treatment of various types of cancer, not just breast cancer. These types of treatments include electrotherapy and magnetic resonance. Electrotherapy is used to treat breast tumors with the help of electrical stimulation. With this technique, the tumor is gently destroyed. The procedure is usually performed with local anesthesia and is not very invasive. Magnetic resonance, on the other hand, uses radio waves. These are tuned to a frequency that specifically resonates with cancer cells, which have a different frequency than normal, healthy cells.

This is just a sampling of all the alternative options currently available for breast cancer treatment. However, always remember that your specific treatment must be based on your beliefs, how aggressive your cancer is, and the condition of your body. Also, I cannot stress enough how important it is to find a doctor who will listen to your wishes and provide the therapy that feels right for you.
