Mounting medical research is showing that, for the treatment of cancer, healthy people do better and debilitated people do worse...an integrative medicine approach can help.
Although there are no proven alternative cancer therapies that can cure cancer, select supplements (vitamins, herbs, mushrooms) may reduce side effects, improve outcomes and long term survival.
There are many therapies - acupuncture, vitamins/supplements, massage, tai chi and qigong - that fight the side effects that are common in the traditional medical approach including fatigue, malnutrition and hot flashes.
For two decades, Dr. Massey has been treating cancer patients during and after chemotherapy and radiation therapy. As medical director for complementay and alternative medicine, he works closely with the Alexian Brothers Hospital Network Cancer Institute.

If I had not entered in this back pain program, I told for sure that I would have to have had back surgery for my three herniated disc's. I have talk to a few coworkers... They had back surgery and I cannot believe the shape they're in... Some are never going to be the same. Some had less severe problems than me and are now on permanent disability. I feel the 99.5% back to normal before the accident.
