Using herbal remedies for breast cancer is controversial. Some people support them wholeheartedly and even report them as being capable of curing cancer, but others believe that they have no place in cancer treatment. Many people, however, use them as supplements to conventional treatments. To choose the best herbal treatment for breast cancer, you should research the effects of each treatment that you are considering and seek the help of a naturopathic practitioner to selecting the appropriate medicines. If you are under the care of a conventional doctor, you should consult with him or her to ensure that the herbs you consume will not adversely affect your treatment.

Consultations with health professionals can help you choose an herbal treatment for breast cancer. A naturopathic doctor specializes in natural treatments and might be a good source of advice about herbs, dosages and effects. A conventional doctor can provide information about the herbs that he or she knows are best avoided, but many medical professionals do not have extensive knowledge of herbal remedies. Some doctors might be willing to research herbal remedies to learn how they will affect your conventional treatment, but many doctors are unlikely to have the time to do so.

Research can be an important part of choosing the best herbal treatment for breast cancer. Before you take an herbal treatment, you should read studies about its side effects and learn whether there is any proof that it will help with your cancer treatment. Likewise, you should learn whether the herbs will interact poorly with any medications that you take or interfere with radiation treatments or chemotherapy. Although your doctor might have some ideas about herbal remedies, he or she might not be well-versed in every remedy that you might try. Getting your own information can give you a head start on deciding whether you want to try a certain herbal remedy or need to discard it and move on to something else.

When choosing the best herbal treatment for breast cancer, you also might do well to research the company from which you will buy them. To avoid damaging your health, you might benefit from learning the steps that the company takes to ensure purity. Herbal remedies sometimes contain toxins that are capable of harming the human body. Purchasing from a company that has a good reputation might ease your mind a bit, and you can ask a naturopathic practitioner to suggest companies from which to buy. Additionally, you might even consider personally growing and harvesting the herbs that you need.

WiseGeek is dedicated to providing accurate and trustworthy information. We carefully select reputable sources and employ a rigorous fact-checking process to maintain the highest standards. To learn more about our commitment to accuracy, read our editorial process.
