Alternative Treatments & Healings for Mesothelioma
[I was contacted by www.TreatMesothelioma.org, and they wanted to write an article informing people on mesothelioma and alternative treatments. I found this interesting and informative. I am hopeful you will enjoy and even use this information to help someone you know. Much love, Lynn]

Alternative mesothelioma treatments are non-conventional treatment approaches for mesothelioma. When alternative treatments and conventional treatments are used together, they form complementary treatments. Basically, most alternative treatments for mesothelioma are alternative medicines, integrative treatments or complementary medicine. Alternative medicine is any non-traditional treatment that replaces traditional medicine. Integrative treatment also sometimes referred to as a type of therapy refers to approaches like yoga, reiki and spiritual healing.
Complementary medicine on the other hand refers to treatment approaches that are used alongside traditional treatments to enhance treatment.
Here are some of the major alternative treatments that might benefit mesothelioma patients:
The basis of ayurvedic medicine is the traditional Hindu and Indian beliefs that the overall health of a person has a direct tie with imbalance. Although some mesothelioma patients have reported pain relief after using ayurdic strategies and supplements, more research is required to determine whether they are actually effective. Nevertheless, some studies have shown that ayurvedic medicine has minimal effectiveness when it comes to reduction or elimination of mesothelioma cancers. Generally, ayurvedic medicine includes advice on special diets, taking ayurvedic medicine, relaxation and breathing techniques among others. An ayurvedic practitioner suggests the most appropriate treatment depending on the health condition of the patient.
Herbs have been used to heal the mind and the body for many years. When backed by information and research, herbal medicines provide an important adjunct to mesothelioma treatment. In several cases, antioxidants have been proven effective in preventing and treating illnesses including cancer. For instance, mint tea helps patients with stomach issues. Chamomile enhances relaxation. Ginger on the other hand helps with nausea. Nevertheless, it is important that mesothelioma patients use herbal products cautiously. Unlike over-the-counter and prescription drugs, most herbal products are not regulated. Therefore, these products can cause harm when used inappropriately.
Being diagnosed with any form of mesothelioma can prompt patients to question their belief system or faith. Spiritual therapy focuses on supporting the patient’s belief as well as their individual right to evaluate and question those beliefs. Spiritual therapies for mesothelioma include religious ceremonies, rituals, counseling, engaging in different religious and spiritual practices as well as learning to be mindful and present. Spiritual therapy may require guidance of a pastor, rabbi, or priest. It can also be self-directed. This alternative therapy should be approached in a manner that is supportive and sensitive to the spiritual values of the patient. Although there are numerous studies on this approach to mesothelioma treatment, the topic has not been generalized since it is personalized to every patient.
This is a form of spiritual healing but patients heal through the management of body energy. The focus of this treatment is on the use of palm healing. Patients manipulate energies while lying on their hands. These energies are believed to contribute to their healing and overall health. Although reiki has not been proven effective in treating mesothelioma directly, it promotes relaxation thereby benefiting the patient indirectly and directly at the same time.
Alternative or complementary mesothelioma treatment options comfort patients while providing certain benefits. Understanding each alternative mesothelioma treatment before you try it is very important. It is also important that you talk to your doctor about the alternative medicines and therapies that you want to try in order to make the best, most informed decision to improve not just the health in your body, but in your mind, soul, and spirit.
