Alternative and Complimentary Therapies

Complementary and alternative medicine are the terms for medical products and practices which are not part of standard medical care.

People with cancer may use complementary and alternative medicines to:

  • Help to cope up with the side effects of cancer treatments, such as nausea, pain, and fatigue
  • Comfort themselves and ease the worries of cancer treatment and related stress
  • They feel they are taking care for themselves
  • Try to medicate or cure their cancer

Complementary medicine is used along with standard medical treatment but is not considered by itself to be standard treatment.

Alternative medicine is used instead of standard medical treatment.
