    No. Some sort of Indian traditional medicine. Know nothing about it.

    Splinter,

    If your still looking for a practitioner, send me a PM let me know what part of the country you're in and ill see if i know anyone. If nothing else I can give ideas for herbs but that'd require personal info bout your brother.



    What the chinese and californians have found most effective in cancer treatment is called Fu Zhen therapy, (all "fusion" puns aside) which is essentially following the allopathic oncology protocol of radiation/surgery/chemo as directed by one's oncologist while simultaneously using chinese medicine (acupuncture to some extent but a heavy emphasis on herbs and nutrition) to work with 3 principle things.

    Building the wei qi, defensive qi, or immune system.

    Building spleen qi and harmonizing digestion.

    Building blood.

    Other things are addressed as the patients pattern differentiates itself, but these three things are very important for any one undergoing chemo or radiotherapy. Including but not limited to clearing heat, draining damp or phlegm, dispelling stagnations of blood qi food and or phlegm, all as appropriate depending on the patient.

    If these can be kept up, the patient can survive the chemotherapy long enough for it to work.



    The problem with the chemotherapy is that while destroying fast growing cells it will take its toll not only on the cancer tissue but on the GI tract and the blood as well. Given the intimate relationship between the immune system, the circulation of healthy blood, and the GI tract, the failure of the latter will quickly become the failure of the former. And one of the most important aspects of recovering from cancer if it does go into remission, is maintaining a strong immune system.


    But as Doc said it is of incredible importance even if he intends to treat the issue entirely without western medicine to see a dr, and a specialist at that, to find out exactly what he's dealing with. And do so immediatly.
    Show me a man who has forgotten words, so that I can have a word with him.
