Additional options: alternative medicine can be used to treat asbestos-related lung cancer
“White tea extract increased a specific type of cell death in laboratory cultures of two different types of non-small cell lung cancer cells, indicating that the tea may have an anti-cancer effect, according to a study published in the journal Cancer Prevention Research.” This is the first paragraph of an article entitled Laboratory Study Suggests Potential Anti-Cancer Benefit of White Tea Extract on the website of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM).
NCCAM is dedicated to the promotion of alternative forms of treatment for everything from heartburn to asbestos-related lung cancer. The “Complementary” in their title suggests that some of these treatments should be used to complement more widely accepted treatment options.
Alternative and complementary medicine practices have become more and more integrated into treating cancer over the years. In fact, the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia is one of many centers that offer alternative treatments such as emotional support, vitamin therapy, spiritual support, and others (FCCC).
Weitz & Luxenberg believes that more information on asbestos-related lung cancer treatment options you have, the better. Whatever treatment works for you is the best treatment for you. We would also like to say that because you are suffering from a disease caused by asbestos, you are entitled to pursue compensation. Negligent asbestos companies put the health of American’s at risks for decades by intentionally withholding information about how dangerous asbestos is from the general public (Multinationalmonitor).
You have the right to take legal action against the companies that poisoned you or your family. Weitz & Luxenberg can help you track them down and prove that you were exposed to asbestos because of their negligence.

Common alternative medicine treatments
In a 2007 National Health Interview Survey, 4 out of 10 adults were reported to have used complementary and alternative medicine in the previous year. The common methods used were “natural products” that contain medicinal properties and deep breathing exercises.
Other common methods for treatment include:
- Chinese herbal therapy - Lilo Lu states that her terminal lung cancer was cured using this method. Lilo used a specific type of prepared mushroom formula in capsules that effectively shrunk her tumors. A doctor at Sloan Kettering (a New York cancer treatment center) was so amazed by her progress that he suggested that she continue her herbal therapy regimen. Her video testimony is available on YoutTube.
- Acupuncture – The Fox Chase Cancer Center states that “acupuncture has been found to be effective in the management of chemotherapy-associated nausea and vomiting and in controlling pain associated with surgery.” (FCCC)
- Maintaining a healthy diet – Paul Kraus, who has survived more than a decade with mesothelioma (another asbestos-related cancer), claims that most of his success has to do with maintaining a healthy diet. He eats organically and has converted to vegetarianism (Survivingmesothelioma).

It is good to have an optimistic, open-minded approach to battling a disease, but it is also important not to forget that your disease was caused by someone’s carelessness.
