Traditional cancer treatments have numerous side effects that can cause patients great discomfort. In fact, many cancer patients have to undergo additional medical treatment just to manage the side effects of their chemotherapy or radiation therapy. However, alternative treatments that supplement traditional ones are available. One medical practice that can complement traditional cancer treatments is naturopathic medicine.
The Type-2 diabetes drug Actos was recently linked to a drastically increased risk of bladder cancer. If you took prescription Actos (pioglitazone) and have been diagnosed with bladder cancer, the two may be related. The Actos attorneys of Williams Kherkher may be able to help you seek compensation from the drug’s manufacturer for your medical bills and other expenses related to your bladder cancer diagnosis.

What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is a style of treatment that focuses on using all-natural, non-invasive treatments that utilize the body’s natural healing processes to promote health and wellness. Naturopaths use techniques and medications that reduce the risk of damaging or harmful side effects. A naturopath’s goal is to help you get past obstacles in your recovery while aiding the body’s natural healing processes. Naturopathic doctors follow six fundamental principles:
- They believe in nature’s healing abilities
- Their treatments do not harm their patients
- They teach patients how to maintain their health
- They identify and treat causes, not symptoms
- They treat both mind and body
- Their focus is prevention of disease
While the primary goal of naturopathic medicine is to prevent illness, a naturopath can be a valuable addition to your cancer treatment team. Their insight can promote your body’s natural healing mechanisms, minimizing the side effects caused by traditional treatments and boosting overall health.
