Book Description :

This new clinical resource clearly explains how to approach integrated care in a way that combines Chinese herbal medicine with Western medicine to enhance and improve medical care for patients with cancer - without undermining or negatively impacting patients' medical treatment. Each chapter covers a different type of cancer, first introducing the conventional medical understanding of that cancer including its etiology, diagnosis, and treatment according to staging and type. The chapter then covers that cancer from the perspective of Oriental medicine. Case studies illustrate the integration of treatment for each cancer type, raising important issues and considerations associated with specific cancers and treatments. Formulas are presented within the context of conventional treatment, intended to enhance the effectiveness of treatment and/or treat side effects without undermining the treatment's function. Each formula is followed by a discussion of how and why the herbs are used, including classical Chinese theory and relevant pharmaceutical studies. Staging and the age and performance status of various patients is used as a means by which to explain how formulas are changed. Case studies explore issues related to the integration of treatment for each type of cancer.

Book Description :

This is the third edition of a highly successful guide to using massage therapy through all stages of the birth process, from pregnancy, through labor and birth, and into the long postpartum period. It is primarily for massage therapists but is also intended for physical therapists, other manual therapists and bodyworkers, nurses and midwives, physicians and doulas - any professional who wants to integrate more therapeutic touch in their work. The text combines what anyone who works with pregnant people needs: an exhaustive distillation of current scientific knowledge, alongside hands-on recommendations, specific techniques and business success from almost a century of the authors' combined experience. The reader will gaina detailed understanding of what is happening to the body during pregnancy and beyond, how massage techniques can impact those changes, and very concrete, applicable strategies for how to work with maternity clients to make them feel better. Amidst this abundance of detail about what to do, the authors also explore the flipside - what therapists need to modify and avoid to ensure that their work with pregnant and postpartum clients is safe; how to recognize high-risk factors or other complications; how best to adjust treatment; and how to work with medical healthcare providers throughout the process.

Book Description :

Cancer is one of the leading killers in the world and the incidence is increasing, but most cancer patients and cancer survivors suffer much from the disease and its conventional treatments’ side effects. In the past, clinical data showed that some complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) possessed anticancer abilities, but some clinicians and scientists have queried about the scientific validity of CAM due to the lack of scientific evidence. There is great demand in narrowing the knowledge gap to explore the scientific and evidence-based knowledge of CAM in the anticancer field. With this aim, an unparalleled undertaking of a book series is launched to structurally consolidate this area. Although acupuncture and moxibustion have been practiced for millennia, they have come under scientific investigation only recently. Acupuncture and moxibustion have been used clinically to treat cancer-related symptoms (e.g. cancer pain, anxiety, depression and insomnia), manage treatment-induced side effects (e.g. hot flashes, nausea and vomiting) and enhance immunity (e.g. blood cell count, lymphocyte and natural killer cell activity). This is the first book manages to provide comprehensive and updated scientific evidence of the effectiveness of acupuncture and moxibustion intervention for cancer care. Laboratory and animal studies have uncovered the mechanisms of acupuncture and moxibustion for cancer therapy. Promising results of most clinical trials show the efficacy and safety of acupuncture and moxibustion in cancer management. This book consists of fifteen chapters which address a range of important aspects that will impact on the application of acupuncture and moxibustion. An overview of the safety and side effects of acupuncture and moxibustion for cancer care are also covered. In addition, the integration of acupuncture with Western medicine in cancer treatment and recent clinical trials are included as well. Opinion leaders around the world have teamed up to pursue a thorough and up-to-date review of the area, this volume will contribute great to the cancer, clinical and academic community by providing evidence-based information on the efficacy of acupuncture and moxibustion as an anticancer therapy.

Book Description :

Cancer is a chronic disease. There are increasing cancer survivors after curative cancer treatment and this makes supportive cancer care an important area that more attention is needed. Chinese medicine has a long history of practice; it has aroused much interest from both Oriental and Western countries. A number of laboratory evidences and clinical trials demonstrated the effectiveness and ef?cacies of Chinese medicine for supportive cancer care. This book attempts to take a comprehensive approach to overview the different areas of Chinese medicine for supportive cancer care. This book not only serves as an introduction to novices to the area and a useful reference for those already involved, but also serves as a stimulus to these and others to employ alternative approaches to current cancer care.

Book Description :

Over the past nearly two decades, thoracic oncology has evolved into a highly complex oncologic subspecialty. Elaborate multimodality treatment regimens utilizing chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and increasingly more complex biological agents, including targeted and immunologic therapies are now standard for a group of malignancies that themselves have become more complex due to increasingly detailed and discriminating staging and genetic evaluation standards. A rapidly advancing knowledgebase has led to dramatic improvements in individualized or "personalized" care; but the myriad of rapid changes also have created a challenge for oncologists to comprehend and incorporate into daily practice. This staggering rapidity of change highlights the need for a comprehensive thoracic oncology textbook designed to be frequently updated in order to keep clinicians, be they pulmonologists, pathologists, radiologists, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, or gastroenterologists, up-to-date in the most current care. Modern Thoracic Oncology utilizes a strategy designed to overcome the traditionally slow production timeline of textbook publication to keep abreast of the pace of change. To overcome this hurdle, we have recruited world experts, who have agreed to author a very small and concise topic (rather than a whole book chapter) so that the information can be frequently updated, reviewed, and published rapidly -- thereby keeping this book relevant and current. Whether one desires information regarding lung cancer screening, esophageal cancer staging, mutational analysis, targeted therapies, stereotactic ablative radiation with real-time imaging, minimally-invasive and robotic surgery, combination immunotherapy, microwave/cryoablation, or methods of early cancer detection, we have endeavored to encompass all of the latest information in the field of thoracic oncology. With frequent future updates, we hope that this ambitious reference textbook will become your sourcebook for thoracic oncology. Modern Thoracic Oncology is published in 3 volumes: Volume 1 entitled "General Principles of Thoracic Oncology" is a comprehensive introduction to thoracic oncology. Principles of thoracic oncology care are discussed and include topics, such as thoracic anatomy and embryology; medical evaluation of cancer patients, appropriate imaging modalities with a specific discussion of lung cancer screening, and the basic principles underlying the various treatment modalities. Under thoracic surgical oncology, details regarding the appropriate choice of staging as well as surgical resection of thoracic tumors are discussed with an emphasis on minimally-invasive and robotic surgery. In the radiation oncology section, treatment focusing on planning, specific types of radiation delivery, from conventional radiation to Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy (SABR), and radiation-induced toxicities (and their management) are outlines in great detail. Basic tenets of precision medical oncology also are detailed including the genetic basis of 1st through 3rd line standard cytotoxic chemotherapy, targeted biological agents, and immunotherapy along with specific guidance regarding immune-related toxicities. The principles of other therapy options, including percutaneous image-guided ablative therapy and photodynamic therapy complete invasive options. Treatment of cancer patients does not stop at invasive therapies, however. Quality of life issues for patients and their families are discussed as well as topics such as nutrition, Chinese herbal medicine, pain management, acupuncture, and end of life care. Volume 2 entitled "Trachea, Lung, and Pleura" addresses lung cancer, one of the most common and deadliest malignancies in the world as well as two relatively rare respiratory tumors. The care of lung cancer patients is highly complex and inclu

Written by one of the country's leading authorities on alternative and complementary cancer treatments, Choices in Healing is designed for the cancer patient or health professional who seeks a comprehensive overview of the available choices, both in treatments and in living with cancer. Choices in Healing offers valuable information and guidance for the whole life cycle of cancer—from the initial shock of diagnosis to decisions about choosing a physician and conventional therapies, selecting complementary therapies, coping with treatment, and the art of living fully with the possibility of recurrence. There are detailed explanations and evaluations of a wide range of complementary therapy programs, including spiritual and psychological approaches, nutritional therapies, physical therapies, pharmacological therapies, and traditional medicines from around the world. There are sections on prayer and other forms of spiritual healing; psychotherapy, support groups, visual imagery and hypnosis; massage, therapeutic touch, yoga, and Qi Gong; macrobiotic diet and other cancer diets; acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicines; and numerous other unconventional therapies used by American cancer patients. With an unusual combination of compassion and objectivity, Michael Lerner describes his conclusions following more than a decade of study of unconventional cancer treatments in North America, Europe, India, and Japan. He also draws extensively on his work with hundreds of cancer patients who have participated in the Commonweal Cancer Help Programs, the residential support program depicted by Bill Moyers in his 1993 PBS documentary Healing and the Mind.

Book Description :

Cancer treatment has enjoyed half a century of healthy development, relying mainly on surgery, cytotoxic therapy and radiation. Achievements and successes are well reflected in the longer survival period and better quality of life. Nonetheless, cancer still spreads locally, recurs, metastasizes and remains one of the top killers.Instead of concentrating on cancer removal, it has become obvious that supportive measures are also important. These include the means to improve quality of life during treatment and to contain tumor growth. To this end, herbal medicine appears to offer holistic support via as yet unknown pathways.This volume reveals the practice of cancer treatment using herbs from all over the world, including China, India and Japan. It provides comprehensive information about the herbs commonly used, the logic of using the herbs, some of the mechanisms of action and other means of palliative treatment. While cancer victims have a thirst for choosing their own supplementary treatment, health providers have a duty to explain to them the justifications and the options.

Usati is a four year old growing up in Sunnyvale, a small, poor and remote sugar cane farming village in Trinidad in the 1940’s. He describes the world he sees, and captures the language and culture of the mainly illiterate peasant workers who live around him. There is widespread belief in black magic, and nearby is the infamous silk-cotton tree which houses the evil spirits who are responsible for all the ills of the village. Usati looks after his two younger siblings. Even as a four year old he has to be a human shield for the neighbour on several occasions in the face of domestic violence. Life is hard and brutal with constant fear of violence and beatings. Following his mother’s death the children are brought up by their grandparents, but there are further constant upheavals within the family. Violence remains within all parts of this society, as is crime and suffering. Usati observes how his family suffers through their illiteracy and the society within which they live. Usati battles for a good education. He vows to bring literacy to the village and to fight against the cruelty that surrounds him. Usati and B started as teenage lovers, but can their love survive and endure a lifetime from the wicked curse and traumas of the intervening years?
