If you have been diagnosed with cancer, you might be interested to find out more about alternative therapies.
There are many of them, some more studied than others, and although they are not cures for cancer, they can often make the symptoms less invasive and help people feel better in general.
If you think you want to explore alternative therapies for cancer, we have some interesting ideas for you below.
Remember, however, that you must speak to your medical doctor about these therapies to make sure that none of them are going to interfere with any treatments you are already undergoing.
Plus, you should not forgo scientific intervention altogether; these alternative therapies should be seen as complementary.
#1 Bemer Treatment
Bemer treatment or Bemer therapy is something that can be carried out at a clinic after a consultation with a professional.
Bemer is an abbreviation of bio-electromagnetic energy regulation. The treatment essentially increases the blood flow through small blood vessels within the body by using a low-frequency electromagnetic pulse.
The more blood that circulates throughout the body (and the additional oxygen that goes with it), the more the body is able to cope with pain and discomfort.
Cells and tissues can start to repair themselves, and although Bemer therapy may not remove the cancer cells entirely, it can help to make the patient feel better and give them the energy they need to fight the disease.
Yoga is a practice that combines deep breathing with stretching exercises. The body is positioned in various ways that mean you have to twist, stretch, and bend.
There are all kinds of different yoga practices, so it is worth taking some time to think about which one might be best for you. Why not try some out to determine which one you enjoy the most?
However, it is important to note that if you don’t enjoy yoga, then you shouldn’t practice it as you will not feel the benefits.
Yoga can provide relief for people living with cancer as it allows the body to stretch out and reduce pain. Plus, the deep breathing element can help to reduce stress which can prevent the body from trying to heal itself.
Hypnosis isn’t going to remove your cancer; a therapist won’t be able to hypany longer having the disease. However, what they can do is to help you to focus on the issues that cancer is causing, specifically pain and stress.
The therapist can then talk to you about being calm, being less stressed, allowing the pain to reduce and so on.
Hypnosis only works when the patient is open to it and wants it to work; if you are fighting against it, then the results will be disappointing.
Therefore if you are going to try hypnosis, you must be ready to hear what is going to be said and allow your body and mind to relax enough to take it all in.
If you are feeling unwell due to your cancer, then exercise might be the last thing you feel like doing, but it really can help you.
You only need to do light exercise if you are not up to anything more strenuous, and just 30 minutes or so can make a big difference in how you are feeling.
Exercise means you are focusing on something other than your illness, and it reduces stress. It also helps you to feel more awake and alert.
