Cancer treatment involves more than just routine medical diagnosis, hospitalised care or surgery. When confronted by cancer, patients seek professional help and advice from their doctors, and also rely on support from family members, peers and fellow patients. We believe correct information about the disease and all its available modes of treatment, together with the knowledge of the side effects of each modality, goes a long way in helping patients take informed decision and take active part in their treatment process.
There are several ways to treat lung cancer and the side effects that may accompany treatment. Each patient is different, and his or her course of treatment will be personalized. Before beginning treatment, it is important that you know: the options or choices you may have possible side effects ways to ease the discomfort that may come with treatment
Today medicine is thought of as a separate world - when we find that somebody is sick, they go to doctors and follow their advice. This is starting to change, with the increasing popularity of alternative and holistic approaches to overall health and well-being. Holistic approach to treating Lung Cancer focuses on how the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual elements of a person are interconnected to maintain health. When one part is not working well, it is believed to affect the whole person. Our approach focuses on the whole person rather than just on the illness or part of the body that is not healthy.
