Once a diagnosis of cancer is made, many look to alternative therapies to increase the potential for a good outcome.  Unfortunately, most nontraditional practioners know little of chemotherapy medications and radiation therapy.  Similarly most oncologists and their staffs know little about the benefits of nontraditional medicine.  Integrative medicine physicians, like Dr. Massey, are able to walk in both worlds and make accurate and effective recommendations.

Mounting medical research is showing that, for the treatment of cancer, healthy people do better and debilitated people do 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.

I was one of the many people suffering with back pain plus a herniated disc. The pain was so bad that I could not walk very far or sit for too long. Through "word of mouth" I heard of Dr. Patrick Massey. So I had my daughter make an appointment with the doctor....he recommended some exercises that were tailored for my body (and condition). I highly recommend Dr. Patrick Massey for back pain. Go and see him. What can you lose , only your back pain.
