Chinese Breast Protection Formula
Chinese Herbal Breast Protection Formula (Chinese Cancer Herbs) plus Homeopathic Formula
Chinese medicinal herbs are traditionally used to prevent and treat a variety of diseases, including cancer. These herbal preparations have many biological effects including direct antiproliferative effects on cancer cells, anti-mutagenic activity, and stimulatory or suppressive effects on immune responses.
There are hundreds of anecdotal case reports of breast cancer cures using traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) as a sole therapy. Chinese medicine is useful in all stages of the disease to augment the benefits of conventional treatments, to prevent recurrence and metastasis in early stages of breast cancer, and to promote health, improve quality of life and prolong life in advanced stages.
Both the University of California San Francisco and the University of Connecticut are currently researching Chinese Herbs and Herbal Formulas for Breast Cancer.
The recommendation for post lumpectomy and mastectomy care includes monthly breast self-examination, an annual mammogram, a careful history and physical exam every 3 to 6 months for 3 years, then every 6 to 12 months for 2 years, then annually.
There are large numbers of patients for whom there are no effective allopathic treatments or for whom the available therapies are either poorly tolerated or only partially helpful. A physician who has the knowledge to help these patients is working with a tremendous advantage.
