Hello. My father was recently diagnosed with esophageal cancer. He has an appointment with the oncologist tomorrow to further discuss his prognosis and treatment plan. He is not eligible for surgery because the cancer has advanced to his arm. He is a non Hodgkins lymphoma cancer survivor and has been cancer free for 30 years until now. I remain hopeful that he can fight this! The discussion boards have been extremely helpful--everyone has so much strength!
I've been a proponent of complementary medicine and have used naturopathic treatments for my own ailments with guidance from a licensed naturopathic doctor.
Does anyone have any experience using such treatments in fighting their cancer?
I've recommended that my parents explore this option, but I know SOME doctors don't fully understand the benefits and haven't been formally trained on this type of treatment.
I welcome your thoughts. Thank you.
