Complementary Medicine

Many ovarian cancer survivors continue to explore the possibilities of complementary medicine as an adjunct to standard medical care. Examples are: acupuncture, naturopathy, massage, reflexology, etc.

If you would like to learn more about these options, here are some websites that we like:

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (New York)

Immune Enhancement Project in Portland, Oregon

In addition, the following resources are recommended by the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance. As with all treatments, the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance does not endorse any particular complementary or alternative therapy. All treatment styles should be discussed with a doctor.
