Complementary Treatment of Late Staged Esophageal Cancer Using Western, Chinese Medicine and Qigong Therapy

Study and Written By : Cong Jing, Zhang Qiang, Chen Jun, Yang Aiying   (Tumor Hospital, Zibo 255067 China)

This Abstract has been examined, accepted and published by The Third World Conference of Medical Qigong in both in Chinese and English. The English report is not as detailed as the Chinese report. This edited version is a combination of both reports. 

Edited by: Joe Hing Kwok Chu 

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:

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.
