Can anyone recommend any alternative cancer treatments...

Can anyone recommend any alternative products or services to help fight cancer, rather than chemotherapy or radiotherapy? In UK, happy to travel !

Re: Can anyone recommend any alternative cancer treatments...

I don't think there are any alternative products or services that have been proven to be effective in fighting cancer, although there may be some (vitamins, meditation, etc.) that have been proven to be effective in helping to minimize some of the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

While chemotherapy, especially, can be difficult to go through, it isn't always...it depends on the type of chemo. And even when it's difficult (as mine was definitely!) it is well worth it if you achieve either a cure (as I did) or even a long period of time in remission. Many people are afraid of chemo, especially, because they're afraid of being severely nauseous, but there are ways to prevent that now. Radiation therapy, too, can be easy or difficult, depending on the area that needs to be radiated.

The one thing I would strongly suggest is that you do not delay treatment.
