What Is Complementary and Alternative Medicine for Cervical cancer?

Q:

What is complementary and alternative medicine for cervical cancer?

A:

Medicines used by health professionals and doctors are known as part of standard medical care. Complementary and alternative medicines are different.

Complementary medicines, such as acupuncture, are used along with standard medical treatments, but they are not regarded as standard treatments. Alternative medicines are not used with standard ones to enhance the effect or to relieve the side effects. They are used to entirely take the place of standard medical treatments.

Many people think that complementary and alternative medicines are much safer than standard treatments. However, it’s not true. Some are safer, while others could be harmful, especially when they are used with standard treatment.

When you are considering a complementary or an alternative medicine, you must ask a health professional or doctor for advice in case of unexpected side effects.
