HOUSTON, July 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mesothelioma.us, a free and educational website that features a wide range of in-depth articles and resources for people who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, has just posted a new article that discusses some of the alternative medicine treatments people can use to treat the disease.
As the article on http://mesothelioma.us/ noted, in some cases, mesothelioma is responding positively to alternative medicine.
"Due to the relatively unsuccessful results of conventional medicine in treating mesothelioma and the lack of a definitive cure, some patients have turned to alternative treatments," the article said, adding that these treatments include holistic forms such as acupuncture, homeopathy, herbs, and other forms of Eastern medicine.
"Some of these approaches can be used alone or together with conventional treatments."
Although most hospitals to not offer these alternative forms of treatment, and insurance companies do not typically provide coverage for holistic alternatives, the article said there are doctors who have used these treatments on mesothelioma patients. People who wish to give these alternative treatments a try may call 1-800 747-4060 to receive a free listing of alternative Mesothelioma treatment doctors and centers.
The new article also explains what some of the alternative medicine treatments involve. For example, acupuncture is a Chinese tradition where fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body to improve health and well-being.
Mesothelioma.us also offers helpful information about other treatment options, including clinical trials and the traditional methods to combat the disease. For example, while surgeries like a pneumonectomy or pleurectomy are often recommended, some patients also receive chemotherapy and/or radiation.
"Certain factors will determine the type of treatment you will receive including the extent of the disease, your age, your medical history, the location, and type of mesothelioma," noted a spokesperson for Mesothelioma.us.
