Alternative treatment can relieve the side effects of mainstream cancer such as minimizing confusion disturbed mentation, behavioral changes, nausea and constipation. the approach of pain control will enhance the patient sense of well-being and decrease the malaise associated with this chronic disease.

treatment methods

Energetic acupuncture repletes energy level to the organism as a whole, reestablishes homeostasis by re-balancing energy distribution and un-blocking energy flow. This systems approach to deal with system wide patho-physiology can be complemented by distinct meridian acupuncture, which directs healing energy to specific organ pathology and is a routine approach in treating diseased organs such as liver, pancreas kidney, including those ravaged by cancers.
Needling a variety of trigger and painful points, percutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, and osteo-puncture, along with whole body energetic acupuncture support, are approaches available to the acupuncturists. In the acupuncture paradigm, any chronic disease process depletes the energy level in the organism. Such depletion can be ameliorated, at least temporarily, by tonification, a process of imparting energy into the system. This is deemed necessary for more durable, successful pain control. It can also add to the patients’ sense of well being and decrease the malaise associated with any chronic disease, especially cancer.

Reducing side effects of chemotherapy

Acupuncture is safe for all age groups, making it an excellent therapy to consider if you or your loved one is overwhelmed by the effects of cancer and traditional treatments. In palliative cancer care, acupuncture is evaluated as an intervention to reduce cachexia and unintentional weight loss. Its use has also been associated with increased appetite. Various forms of acupuncture have been found to alleviate pain, xerostomia following head and neck radiotherapy, fatigue, and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV).

After care for cancer treatment

​In breast cancer patients, acupuncture alleviated aromatase inhibitor-induced joint pain and stiffness, improving physical well-being. EA (electroacupuncture, EA) significantly improved fatigue, anxiety, and depression as well as arthralgia compared with usual care. Acupuncture was also as effective as standard care for hot flashes, and EA may be more effective than gabapentin with fewer side effects. Early phase studies also suggest that acupuncture may relieve hot flashes in prostate cancer patients. Effects of acupuncture for menopausal hot flashes in non-cancer patients are mixed. Acupuncture can improve pain and well-being in lung cancer patients and benefits have also been observed for peripheral neuropathy, including that associated with diabetes, AIDS, and chemotherapy. Acupuncture did not reduce postoperative ileus from standard surgery, but EA did reduce postoperative ileus and analgesic use after laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer.

Use acupuncture to fight cancer

  • Helps to minimize pain caused by cancer
  • Manages the side effects of radiation and chemotherapy such as vomiting, nausea, poor appetite, weight loss, fatigue, depression, xerostomia (dry mouth), and anxiety
  • Increases white blood cell count
  • Improves immune and lymphocyte cell activity

Purported uses

Cancer treatment-related symptoms
A number of clinical trials support the use of acupuncture in relieving pain, nausea and vomiting, dry mouth, fatigue, and hot flashes resulting from cancer treatments. It is also being evaluated to stimulate appetite, and reduce general physical wasting and unintended weight loss.

Certain gene mutations and some inherited conditions are considered stomach cancer risk factors. They include:

  • BRCA1 & BRCA2: Inherited mutations on the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are often associated with higher risks for breast cancer. Individuals who have inherited these genetic mutations are also at an increased risk for stomach cancer
  • E-cadherin/CDH1: Though rare, people who inherit this genetic mutation have a 70 to 80 percent chance of developing stomach cancer in their lifetime. Also, women with this genetic defect have an increased risk of breast cancer.
  • Lynch syndrome: This condition may also be referred to as hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC), a genetic condition that runs in families. More commonly, this condition is associated with an increased risk for colon cancer. HNPCC also predisposes people to stomach cancers.
  • Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP): This syndrome causes polyps in the colon, stomach and intestines. Often caused by mutations of the gene APC, this syndrome greatly increases a person’s risk of colorectal cancer and may play a small role in increasing a person’s stomach cancer risk.


  • Smoking: There is evidence linking cigarette smoking to many types of cancer, including stomach cancer. Smokers have been found to be at greater risk of developing cancer than non-smokers.
  • Diet: Scientists believe that eating foods preserved in these ways may play a role in the development of stomach cancer. On the other hand, fresh foods (especially fresh fruits and vegetables and properly frozen or refrigerated fresh foods) may protect against this disease.
  • Working in the coal, metal or rubber industries: Chemicals that are released in these environments have been linked to the development of stomach cancer.


  • H. pylori infection: Doctors have found that a long-term H. pylori infection may lead to inflammation and pre-cancerous changes to the stomach lining. In fact, stomach cancer patients typically have a higher incidence of H. pylori infections than people who do not have stomach cancer.
  • Pernicious anemia: Some people with pernicious anemia may have gastric polyps, which can increase the risk of stomach cancer.
  • Epstein-Barr virus infection: According to the American Cancer Society, Epstein-Barr virus is found in the cancer cells of about 5% to 10% of people with stomach cancer.

About Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of treatment in traditional Chinese medicine. It is performed by applying very thin needles to certain points on your body. Research has shown that acupuncture can reduce some side effects of cancer and cancer treatment.
How Acupuncture Is PerformedAcupuncture is usually performed by a licensed acupuncturist, who is a person with special training in this field. During your treatment, you will lie on a padded table, while your acupuncturist inserts thin, disposable needles into your skin at specific points. Your acupuncturist may use different points on your body, based on the problem that he or she is treating. Although needles are used, most people feel little or no pain.
Once the needles are in place, you will rest for about 30 minutes. Your acupuncturist will remove the needles at the end of your session.
People have different experiences with acupuncture. Some people feel relaxed after their treatment, while others have more energy.
