Chinese treatment to prevent recurrence?


Question from Chat: I had my chemo and radiation therapies 3 months back. Is there Chinese treatment for prevention of recurrence?
Answers - Raymond Chang Potentially there are herbs one can take either for bolstering the immune system or that have direct anti-cancer properties. Again the herbal formulas will depend on the individual, the characteristics of the particular tumor, how invasive or aggressive it may be, the stage, etc. But in a nutshell there certainly can be treatments appropriate for secondary prevention.
