Today's medicine has gained incomparable results in its different branches. New alternative medicines and approaches to treatment of one or another diseases change almost every day, more and more new innovations and discoveries let thousands and millions of people get better and sometimes even stay alive thanks to our medical innovations. Nevertheless, there still exist a certain number of illnesses that are extremely serious and dangerous and some of them are still incurable. One of such serious diseases, which are a great problem for all doctors and the whole world of medicine, is cancer. Unfortunately, this disease has taken a great amount of people's lives during the whole period of our history and still it does not stop its awful work.
A countless number of different medicines and different approaches have been used to cope with the problem but most of them were and still are helpless. A few people are lucky to return to normal life after cancer but most of such victims left our world. Despite such situation doctors of the whole world never stay blankly on their feet and constantly try one or another new treatment. Such innovations are called alternative cancer treatments and take part in our medicine up to these days. The number of alternative cancer treatments is countless but it would be useful to note the most popular and interesting kinds of them.
One of alternative cancer treatments is thermal treatment. The basic principle of such kind of treatment is using of heat, in the other words heat shock. It can be explained by the focusing of the power of heat on the certain part of the body and serious influencing it. Such a kind of alternative cancer treatments is widely used for treatment of people who are ill with cancer. There are several kinds of thermal treatment as focused ultrasound, induction heating, microwave heating and others. Each of them is used in a particular situation and for the particular case of the patient. It depends on different factors as the level of disease development, procedures used for the patient before thermal treatment and so on.
The other kind of alternative cancer treatments is bacterial treatment. For such a treatment in most cases certain amount of magnetic resonance is used. It is used to certain parts of the whole body of the patient. That is why this procedure is almost harmless to the rest of the body. Also the basic element of such kinds of treatment is usage of anaerobic bacteria, which gives good results. Explaining of the process is rather difficult and is closely connected with biology and chemistry.
In general it must be said that the fight with cancer is constantly in process and millions of people all over the world try to take part in this process. Recently, in 2000 in the USA appeared a new publication connected with this topic. That was American Cancer Society's idea to publish American Cancer Society's Guide to Complementary and Alternative Cancer Methods. That was a great event in the whole history of cancer treatment. Now all new alternative cancer treatments are gathered together in this book and anyone who has come across the problem or interested in it is able to get the needed information.
Cancer is all around us and there is no guarantee that anyone will not be ill with it. There are numbers of different movements and organizations engaged in this question. A countless number of money is gathered annually for treatment of cancer and for producing of new medicines for it. That is why it is very important and almost obvious to know more about the disease and the ways of its treatment.
