Research shows that Chinese medicine can be very effective in supporting the treatment of cancer by orthodox Western methods, and is particularly effective in alleviating the side effects of treatment. it is never appropriate to substitute Western approaches to Cancer with Chinese Medicine. This book. by Henry McGrath explains how this support takes shape.
Henry McGrath draws on his many years as a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine to explain how Chinese medicine approaches cancer in terms of understanding and treatment.
He presents the wide range of approaches that Chinese medicine has to offer people with cancer, and offers practical strategies to promote the health of the body as well as methods with which to cultivate the mind, helping the patient develop both physical and mental wellbeing
He covers a wide range of treatments, from acupuncture to Qigong, giving readers a sound basis on which to explore further specific treatment.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Approaches to Cancer will be an invaluable book for people with cancer and the medical professionals who work with them.’Chinese medicine has several important tools to offer in cancer management, but the cultural language and unique medical diagnosis can be a barrier to understanding the correct use of these tools. Henry McGrath has an excellent grasp on the true principles of Chinese medicine and he has managed to present it in a way that can be readily understood by cancer sufferers or specialists who seek to view this disease from another perspective.’
