However, some doctors are open to their patients receiving complementary therapy3. As the name suggests, this is a form of therapy that is done side by side with traditional forms of therapy such as radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
This can be a good option for patients seeking alternative forms of treatment for their illness. However, the fact remains that there have yet to be any approved methods of using herbal medicine for prostate cancer4.
While it is true that alternative medicine such as herbs may be effective, there have yet to be any conclusive evidence regarding its effectiveness on prostate cancer. At the moment, there have not yet been any clinical trials or large-scale studies about using herbal medicine for prostate cancer.
While this doesn’t mean that they are not effective, this also means that people should not rely on these methods exclusively. It’s still best to listen to your doctor’s advice, and follow their recommendations regarding treatment5.
However, if you wish to try out herbal medicine in conjunction with modern treatments, it is possible to do so. Be sure to discuss it with your doctor so that they can safely guide you on how best to go about it without compromising your treatment.
