Complementary and Alternative Medicines 

Some patients use complementary medicines in addition to their standard procedures or decide to forgo usual treatments altogether in favor of these medicines as an alternative way of battling their cancer. Some examples include meditation, yoga and taking supplements like vitamins and herbs.

But note that while these tactics may lessen side effects from the cancer, many have not been scientifically tested. Take an active stance in your care, research all forms of treatments, and speak with your physician before undergoing any alternative regimen.
