Complementary therapies

Sometimes called holistic medicine, the goal of complementary medicine is to pay attention to the person as a whole and not just the disease.  Complementary therapies can help to reduce the distress of symptoms and side-effects associated with breast cancer and its treatments, as well as the emotional aspects of coping with this traumatic experience.

For many people diagnosed with breast cancer, complementary medicine has helped to:

  • Focus on wellness rather than the illness.
  • Ease treatment related side effects.
  • Reduce the anxiety and stress associated with the diagnosis and treatment.

Complementary therapies will soothe you and enhance the sense of well being. These therapies work best as part of your total treatment plan, combined with conventional medical treatments.  Also, what works for one patient may not work for another patient. Do not feel pressurized to do it because somebody else did it.

There are literally hundreds of complementary treatments. While some treatments have been studied in breast cancer patients, others have not.

At Chennai Breast Centre, we help you with your need for holistic medical assessment and treatment.
