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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The 14 chapters of this reference book sequentially address overviews of supportive cancer care with acupuncture, herbs and qigong ... and then approach the topic by TCM's application to side-effects associated with surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. ... The repetition of information and references across chapters from different angles of regard may well serve those readers interested in a subset of the book ... . a welcome and more complete contribution to the use of TCM as supportive care in cancer." (B. R. Cassileth and K. Simon Yeung, Focus on Alternative and Complementary Therapies, Vol. 15 (3), September, 2010)
