Complementary Therapies: Free Teleconfer
This looks like a particularly interesting free teleconference from our friends at Living Beyond Breast Cancer (www.lbbc.org). I have known many women who used complementary medicine to help with chemotherapy side effects. The most frequently used, in my experience, is acupuncture with many women finding it very helpful for the relief of nausea and fatigue. As you know, there is always a concern about anything that you ingest (herbs, pills, etc), so do speak with your doctor before embarking on that kind of program. Often the advice will be to wait until chemo is done and then feel free to take whatever you want.
Here is the information re the teleconference:
