Totally not on subject of cancer, but I went the acupuncture route to stop smoking and it certainly worked. Seventeen years ago I was a three pack a day smoker. My lungs were so compromised that I would sit up in the middle of the night to clear them and then just go back to sleep. Realized if I didn’t stop smoking my time here would be cut short. I am all for trying different healing routes.
I go to an acupuncturist who has received training in TCM (initially educated in western medicine – MD from Ohio State). There is no way to objectively evaluate the benefit, but it makes me feel better knowing that I am not limiting myself to conventional medicine. Too bad insurance does not recognize acupuncture except as used as anesthesia.
Up to now, I have never mentioned anywhere or anyone for the patients as well as caregiver for acupuncture or TCM(Traditional Chinese Medicine_) practitioner.
I was told 2 days ago by a nursing manager in my hospital that some of her patients get good result from acupuncture and treatment from Dr. GUO and ask do I know him and his organization. I said no. But I look up his bio and found he meets my previous requirement of being experienced (ie: older>60, trained in Mainland China among others) .
Therefore if anyone wants to go or try this route, below is the link for their home page.
Their business organizations are also located throughout 25 states,I believe.
but if you are in the Chicago area, I will ask him specifically by name.
As usual, I do not have any financial interest in putting out their name on this board. I just want people to have this option if they choose to do so.
