Integrative Medicine does what is best for the patient. I am not especially attached to pharmaceuticals. I am not especially attached to natural medicines. I want to use what is best for the patient. I want to use treatments that do the most good and the least harm. Integrative medicine broadens conventional medicine. Sometimes we use Integrative Medicine, maybe we don’t need such strong medicines. Maybe we do not have to use risky medicines. Or maybe doses of medications can come down sometimes we use Integrative Medicine. I will give you a great example of use of Integrative Medicine. We have more options sometimes we use Integrative Medicine. Sometimes patient is going through conventional cancer treatment – like chemotherapy or radiotherapy – Chinese medicine, acupuncture and herbs, often can be very helpful. Chinese medicine is very supportive of patient who undergoes chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment. And we are not abandoning the conventional modern medical healthcare. It is chemotherapy and radiotherapy which is probably saving the patient’s life. But patients can tolerate chemotherapy much better. Patients feel much better, they have a better quality of life sometimes patients are also being supported by Chinese medicine. Dr. Kevin Barrows, MD. So to me that is an exquisite marriage of conventional and Integrative Medicine. We are doing the best thing for the patient. Integrative medicine benefits in chemotherapy.
