Can­cer Patients In Canada Receive Chi­ro­prac­tic

A study pub­lished in the Jour­nal of Clin­i­cal Oncol­ogy, July 18, 2000 shows that Ontario women diag­nosed with breast can­cer in 1994 or 1995 elected to use some form of what the study termed, “Complementary/​Alternative Med­i­cine” includ­ing chi­ro­prac­tic. The study con­ducted at the Cen­tre for Stud­ies in Fam­ily Med­i­cine, Fac­ulty of Med­i­cine and Den­tistry, Uni­ver­sity of West­ern Ontario, ran­domly sur­veyed women from Ontario diag­nosed with breast cancer.

Over­all, 66.7% of the respon­dents reported using some form of Alter­na­tive Med­i­cine most often in an attempt to boost the immune sys­tem. The most com­mon form of what the study clas­si­fied as alter­na­tive med­i­cine was chi­ro­prac­tic. In addi­tion, 62.0% reported use of home alter­na­tive prod­ucts, most fre­quently vitamins/​minerals, herbal med­i­cines, green tea, spe­cial foods, and essiac. Inter­est­ingly though was that slightly less than half of the patients using these pro­ce­dures informed their med­ical doctors.
