Treating lung cancer with alternative treatments is often an effective complementary therapy alongside traditional Western medical approaches of radiation and chemotherapy. In fact, a 2007 study by the American College of Chest Physicians found alternative treatments helpful in treating the symptoms of lung cancer. Specifically, one of the most popular complementary therapies for lung cancer treatment is regular acupuncture sessions to treat cancer symptoms such as pain and nausea. Other alternative treatments deemed helpful include massage, meditation, and yoga. These treatments provided relief of pain, nausea, anxiety, and fatigue.
