Traditional Chinese Medicine and Cancer

I noticed a passage in David Winston and Steven Maimes' book Adaptogens about Fu Zheng Treatment: "fu zheng pei ben (support the normal qi and strengthen resistance)". This treatment is an adjunct to chemo and radiation-therapies that complements the treatment and also helps mitigate the nasty side effects. Hu Zheng therapies will employ adaptogens and thus their reference in the book.

This paper provides some context: CANCER – THE TCM PERSPECTIVE:

This thread will be used to discuss TCM and its perspectives on cancer.
