There has been a great deal of interest as to whether Chinese medicine has anything of value to offer for the treatment of cancer. GreenMedInfo writes that scientists have proved with thousands of studies using hundreds of thousands of cancer patients that Chinese herbal medicine can offer significant treatment for most types of cancers.
Chinese medicine is thousands of years old, and well-respected worldwide as an alternative to conventional Western medicine. According to acupuncturist and TCM practitioner Simon Becker, a clinical study conducted by Zhang Ming and Tiao Rong [in China] comparing the efficacy of Western gout treatments with Chinese herbs for gout indicated the outcomes of:
… both treatment groups receiving Chinese medicinals and the control group receiving standard Western medicines was essentially equal (94.2 percent vs. 94 percent). The only notable difference between the two groups was that the control group which received the Western medicine suffered from many side effects, whereas the treatment group did not.
According to Becker, Chinese herbs are free of dangerous side effects when used under proper supervision by a knowledgeable natural health care practitioner.
