CancerGuide: Alternative and Complementary Therapies
Evaluating Alternative Therapies
Information on Specific Therapies
These are in three groups. First, I list things that I consider promising - I put these first because I am first and foremost interested in what might actually help cancer patients. Second, I list therapies I happen to have come across which are little known where the information here might be relatively unique. Third, I list some popular therapies I happen to have looked into. I make no attempt to be comprehensive in this area.
Please understand that my opinion that something is "promising" only means I think it might have some efficacy. It absolutely doesn't mean I think it's a guaranteed miracle cure and, in fact, I know of no alternative therapy that has a proven high rate of success. I strongly believe that it is a potentially lethal error to substitute alternative therapy for other treatment in any case where effective proven therapy is known.
Note: Will Need to Make Medline Searches into Pages

Mind-Body medicine is a major branch of complementary medicine. See CancerGuide's Mind & Attitude section for my take on it and more.
