FAQ

Alternative Medicine and Mesothelioma: Soothing symptoms

    Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation form the three prongs of common mesothelioma treatment, but they often cause pain, and don't treat all mesothelioma symptoms in the short term. Alternative medicine can fill in the gaps in conventional treatment, and can provide soothing care to the symptoms that mesothelioma sufferers face, along with ways to generally improve a person's health and outlook. Alternative medicine has it's limits though, and hasn't been proven effective at curing mesothelioma, so is best used when combined with conventional treatments.

Pleural mesothelioma can cause breathlessness due to fluid or tissue build-up around the lungs, and alternative medicine can help with that feeling in a number of ways. Breathing exercises can make a huge difference in controlling the feeling of breathlessness, especially when that training kicks in during a crisis. These techniques can be taught, sometimes by an RN or other medical professional. Relaxation exercises, some of which may involve breathing, can make a huge difference in slowing things down, and allowing the panic of breathlessness to pass. Simple things like sitting near a fan can make a huge difference in the feeling of breathlessness for some.

Ask a mesothelioma patient what they go through, and odds are good that they will mention pain, because pain is associated with all types of the illness, luckily it too can be soothed with alternative medicine. Many patients make use of acupuncture in order to help deal with pain, and it can also be helpful for breathlessness. Relaxation techniques, such as deep centered breathing and yoga, can be used to minimize feelings of pain, and to calm a pain-wracked body. For some patients with addiction concerns, these therapies can be beneficial for managing pain with reduced use of powerful narcotic medications, although they needn’t replace these medications entirely.

Alternative medicine can be a very powerful tool for pain reduction, but like any method, it has limits. While alternative medicines can be very effective at treating pain and breathlessness; there are no known alternative treatments which can cure mesothelioma at this time. Using skepticism is important here, if a claim seems too good to be true, there’s a good likelihood that it is. Any treatment that a patient undergoes should be known by their entire treatment team, especially their oncologist, in order to avoid any spurious claims or harmful interactions.

Mesothelioma is complex and aggressive; conventional treatments can be life-saving or life-extending, but might not do enough for pain and breathlessness. This article has briefly covered what alternative therapies can do, as well as what they can’t. Using these therapies together with standard treatments can lead to healthier patients in the long term.
