This study was not designed to directly compare non-conventional therapies with conventional ones, and the results do not mean that all unproven remedies are useless.

Importantly, this study did not examine the interaction of conventional and alternative treatments (which in some cases may cause problems). In addition, this study did not actually find th...
A survey published in The Lancet journal finds 220 cancer patients who turned to GoFundMe to pay for homeopathic treatment which is not based on modern science. At least 28 per cent of those patients died after their fundraising campaigns started.
A survey published in The Lancet journal tracked 220 cancer patients who turned to GoFundMe to pay for homeopathic treatment which is not based on modern science. At least 28 per cent of those patients died and research points to an increased risk of death among those who seek alternative treatments.

CONCLUSION: The collaboration between HONK and IKOM established iHOM in paediatric oncology in Bern. In this setting, iHOM was a safe and supportive additional treatment for various indications during the conventional cancer care. However, no generalizable results can be deducted from these data. We emphasize future research on this topic. PMID: 30477851 [PubMed - in process]

Background:Polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocytosis (ET), and myelofibrosis (MF) are chronic myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) characterized by clonal cell proliferation, splenomegaly, and significant symptom burden. Integrative medicine interventions may offer unique symptom management strategies. (Gowin, et al., EHA 2017). Here we describe integrative interventions utilized and association with symptom burden, quality of life, depression, and fatigue adjusted for lifestyle confounders.Methods:Patients were recruited via social media. Consent and online self-report surveys were completed capturing patient demogr...
