Most people are not aware of the difficulties patients, and families have when one of their members contracts cancer. Cancer is the silent disease, but when it matures and rears its ugly head it can be a very devastating disease. We have come a long way in treating cancer, but there is still a long way to go, and Cancer Treatment Centers of America is leading the charge.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) not only treats the disease fo cancer, but it also treats the rest of the individual as well as those who are involved such as family and friends. In addition to the physical problems that cancer creates there is also the emotional and mental issues that not only affect the patient but family and friends as well.
When most people think of cancer, they think about the effects of chemotherapy, the ravages that radiation treatment can evoke, and how difficult cancer can be. But in addition to traditional treatments for cancer such as chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation, CTCA also uses many alternative methods that treat the whole person as well.
There are no two cancers that are exactly alike, and no two patients react to cancer in the same manner either. Therefore, there are may different remedies that can be used, many in combination with one another. Such treatments as acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, hormone therapy, immunotherapy, nutrition therapy, mind-body medicine, pain management and many others.
80 percent of adults who are going through cancer treatment are malnourished because the stress of the disease and treatments steals their appetite. Roughly 70 percent of these folks are suffering from severe fatigue most of the time. At CTCA the patient is assigned to a team of experts who carefully design a treatment plan that is designed just for that individual. There is no better way to treat the disease than in a way that treats the whole person instead of just the disease.
