Cancer has become the No.1 killer of human beings. What can doctors do to help cancer patients? Surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy are the three main traditional cancer treatments. However, these three treatments only work on 20%~30% of cancer patients. American journal Science has evaluated the anticancer battle in the past 40 years, “Traditional technology, few breakthroughs, huge disappointments”.
Recently at Traditional Chinese Medical Oncology Forum held in Macau, Xu Kecheng-- president of Guangzhou Fuda Cancer Hospital of Jinan University and President Niu Lizhi reached a consensus with other experts on new ways of treating cancer—“China’s Way of Anti-Cancer ”.
The concept of “China’s Way of Anti-Cancer” lays emphasis on “eliminating and improving”. Traditional treatments (surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy) and new treatments (ablation treatment, microvascular intervention), traditional medicine (traditional Chinese medicine, natural medicine) and modern medicine are combined to make cancer a controllable chronic disease, aiming at prolong cancer patient’s survival time and allowing cancer patient living with cancer.
Chinese medicine Master Zhu Liangchun thought that Chinese medicine has its advantages in treating cancer. For example, it could improve cancer patient’s immunity and make up the defects of surgery and chemotherapy. The combination of Chinese medicine and modern medicine can help patients live with cancer, improve life quality and prolong survival time.
Successor of Chinese medicine Master Zhu Liangchun and Prof. Xu Kecheng.
At the workshop How Chinese Medicine Master Zhu Liangchun Treats Cancer held on 28th Nov, Master Zhu Liangchun’s successor—Professor Zhu Wanhua explained how Zhu Liangchun treated cancer. She brought up that there were two means of treating cancer in Chinese medicine: strengthening body resistance and eliminating evil (risk factors). In early stage of disease, eliminating evil is stressed. In middle stage, strengthening body resistance and eliminating evil are both implemented. And in its late stage, strengthening body resistance as the core and eliminating evil to complement.
Usually when cancer is diagnosed, it’s in middle or late stage. You have to kill cancer but not harm the body. You need to pay attention to the harmonization of Yin and Yang, Qi and blood. Especially you should focus on tonifying spleen and kidney, which can relieve symptoms and prolong lifetime.
Cancer is a common chronic disease. Anti-cancer treatment takes a long time. First patients shall know cancer, learn how to face death and choose an appropriate treatment. Keeping in good mood is the key to overcoming this disease.
Chinese medicine Master Zhu Liangchun
Master Zhu Liangchun summarized a Chinese-styled cancer treatment ideas basing on his lifelong study. He thought doctors could apply treating body and soul simultaneously, talk therapy, food therapy, drug therapy, etc to help patients, finally achieving the purpose of living peacefully with cancer and prolonging lifespan.
Professor Xu Kecheng said, “It is common in applying the idea ‘China’s Way of Anti-Cancer t’ at Fuda. Applying advanced minimally invasive techniques like cryosurgery and nanoknife ablation to treat cancer, supplemented by Chinese medicine, makes cancer patients live with cancer. ‘Green treatment’ which has less damage to body should be the direction of cancer treatment”.
