Alternative Mesothelioma Treatment

There are several new alternative treatments available to those who have certain types of cancer, including mesothelioma. The delay of widespread use of alternative medicine remains due to the fact that not enough is known about the efficacy of these new treatments as of yet. As more victims of mesothelioma and other cancers try different methods of treatment, studies can be done to confirm whether or not they are helpful in prolonging the life of a mesothelioma patient. These new alternatives that hopefully will show promise include non-conventional treatments with natural non-toxic supplements, which are easy on the body.

There are a few lesser known alternative medicines still being examined by alternative practitioners throughout the world. One of these is manufactured in Ukraine; it's a semi-synthetic compound, called Ukrain, which has shown promising results in efficacy and in improving the quality of life in patients with colorectal, bladder, pancreatic and breast cancer. More studies of this compound in clinical trials could result in the addition of its use for mesothelioma patients and in the conventional medical world as well.

Another natural plant, a European species of mistletoe, has been used for centuries in Europe and is known for its ability to treat acute and chronic health issues. In addition, there are claims that it can reduce tumor size, stimulate immunity and improve survival for patients with various forms of cancer including; breast, ovarian, cervical, stomach, colon and lung. Under the name of Iscador, this extract is from a semiparasitic plant, and offers fewer adverse reactions than some of the conventional medicines used to fight cancer.

Two other plants are becoming a popular focus in the fight against cancer as well: Cat's Claw, a vine native to South America, and Astragalus, a plant native to China. Both these plants have been used medicinally for centuries and in recent years have been under scientific scrutiny for their use in inhibiting cancer cell growth and also in boosting the immune system.

Vitamin C, one of the most popular vitamins available, is also becoming a topic for alternative treatment in the battle against cancer, albeit a controversial one. Some researchers claim that vitamin C is effective at eradicating cancer cells. Dr. Linus Pauling was a proponent of using vitamin C as a therapy against cancer; citing its ability to aid the synthesis of protein collagen and for stimulating the immune system. Dr. Pauling explained that collagen helps protect against cancer metastases, thereby, halting the spread of cancers.

On a different level of medicine, it has been long noted that cancer cells cannot thrive in an abundantly-oxygenated environment, which brings about the theory of using ozone therapy to fight cancer. Medical ozone is made from medical grade oxygen that is electrically activated. A study dating back to 1980 found that its use inhibited the growth of cancer cells in lung tumors.
