One of the more common in natural treatment of testicular torsion is nutrition therapy. With this mode of treatment, dietary changes are made to your eating habits not only to help fight the disease, but also minimize the side effects of both chemotherapy and radiation while optimizing your overall health.
In the treatment of testicular torsion, nutrition therapy is individualized from person to person, based on a number of factors, such as health, body fat, immune system, staging and medical history (to name a few). However, it usually involves an increase of fruits, vegetables and whole grains as well as yogurt, legumes, fish and poultry. These dietary changes are often coupled with nutritional supplementation of vitamins C and E, selenium, beta carotene and eicosapentaenoic acid, which is a form of omega-3 fatty acid.
Another common complementary and alternative medicinal treatment is naturopathic medicine. With this methodology, the whole person is being treated for the disease, not just the cancer itself. Focus is also placed on the mind, the soul and the emotions, as each piece of your being is important to recovery.
Naturopathic medicine frequently entails a combination of nutritional changes, herbal supplementation, physical exercise, deep tissue massage, acupuncture, counseling, stress management, mediation and other alternative practices. These are used in conjunction with Western medicine, such as surgical removal of the tumor (or testicle), chemotherapy and radiation therapy. The variety of different applications doesn’t neglect any facet of your person. It’s essentially creating the healthiest environment, both internally and externally, so you can get well.
