October Is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Did you know October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Therefore, we would like to shine a light on how acupuncture can help and show support.
When someone is diagnosed with cancer, they have to begin going to check-ups and treatments. Patient’s may need chemotherapy or radiation, for instance. These treatments may save lives, but as a result they come with a cost – side effects.
In addition, patients with cancer may experience fatigue, physically and mentally. As a result, affecting their quality of life and mental well-being.
In a study by the Journal of Clinical Oncology, patients who received weekly acupuncture and Western treatments showed significant results.
In conclusion, not only does acupuncture help with Cancer Related Fatigue (CRF). It also helps reduce anxiety and depression. Therefore, it has also improved patient's quality of life!
In this video, founder of Healing with Zen, Zen Tuan, shares her experience treating and working with cancer patients.
First, she discusses the side effects of chemotherapy and how acupuncture can help with the symptoms.
Additionally, Zen suggests other ways in which you or your loved one can continue care outside of the treatment room.
