In the eyes of many people, taking Chinese medicine when suffering from cancer is to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy. Since there is no chemotherapy, the significance of taking Chinese medicine is naturally not significant. In fact, this is a misunderstanding of Chinese medicine in treating cancer.
Cancer is a tumor formed by the accumulation of cancer cells. Early cancers are generally small tumors. When its diameter is less than 1 cm, ordinary X-rays are difficult to see clearly. When cancer is discovered by imaging, the patient's body has formed an environment suitable for the growth and reproduction of cancer cells. If the environment does not change, the cancer will worsen. From this perspective, surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy change the "local environment", which is mainly for the treatment of cancer itself. It is difficult to change its "survival environment". The advantage of traditional Chinese medicine is to change this by regulating the whole body. surroundings".
There is a saying in Chinese medicine that "the righteousness is in the inside, and evil cannot be done." The principle of "immunotherapy" in modern medicine is similar.
"Immunotherapy" refers to the separation of patients' cells from the blood, and the centralized "training" of them to turn them into a "killing" cell, which is then transfused back into the blood. "Killer cells" can identify tumor cells and "destroy" them, or directly use immune preparations, etc. These are to strengthen the body's own immune system to fight disease.
After a diagnosis of cancer, even in the early stages, you should take Chinese medicine to improve your physique as prescribed by your doctor. This is a time-consuming process.
