The integrative approach to cancer attempts to combine the healing and supportive benefits of complementary alternative medicine with the destructive power of conventional treatments. The advantage of this approach, is that many complementary cancer treatments can help reduce the toxicity of conventional chemotherapy and radiotherapy to normal cells. There is some medical research studies demonstrating an improvement in the chemotherapy effect following a combination with vitamin C or other supplements.
In some cases, they can also augment the effect of conventional treatment. A study at Duke University found that a combination of hyperthermia and chemotherapy improves the oxygenation of breast tumors. Thus, tumor hypoxia can be prevented which would otherwise lead to the tumour’s resistance to radiation.
Almost always, holistic cancer treatments help maintain quality of life. Having a plan and being in control of your effect following a combination with vitamin C or other supplements.
