A comprehensive therapy of Chinese-Western medicine and qigong has been adopted in our hospital since May, 1991-Dec. 1995. Chinese medicine: compound Tianxian capsule; Western medicine: radiotherapy and (or) chemotherapy according to patients' pathology type and specific conditions; qigong: Guolin New Qigong: natural movement, express movement relaxation static qigong, sound qigong, one two three steps walking and fast walking. It combines traditional Chinese medicine with modern medicine and integrates biology--society--psycho medicine together. Modern testing methods, such as imaging and laboratory tests etc. were employed to observe 120 cases suffering from medium to late staged esophageal cancer before and after self - treatment. After statistical management, the result was as follows:
Bone Marrow Suppression
Nausea & Vomiting
Liver & Kidney Damage
Loss of Hair
|Years after Therapy||Beginning Numbers of Patients||Number of Mortality of this Illness ||Number of Mortality of other Illnesses||Number of Losing Contact During the Period ||Adjusted Number During the Period||Rate of Mortality||Rate of Survivors||Cumulative Rate of Survivors|
The final result: the survival rate: 5 years: 37.45%; medium survival period:2-3 years. This survival rate is obviously longer compared to that of other therapies reported so far. (survival rate: 16-20% for 5 years; medium survival period: 17 months)
The study shows that the comprehensive therapy of Chinese-Western medicine and qigong has the function of improving the curative effect, relieving side effects, improving physical state, and prolonging the survival period. Therefore it is the best therapy in the treatment of medium to late staged esophageal cancer so far.
