Q. How about trying acupuncture,will it be helpful while I continue with my treatments as well? I am taking medicine for my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and they are giving treatment for hypothyroidism and my all tests were also on hypothyroidism… recovery is still not clear and they have told to wait few more months for surgery. They are observing me on medicines and some minor movements. How about trying acupuncture…..will it be helpful while I continue with my treatments as well?

A. Many people are trying for both. They both are good and adding acupuncture will speed your recovery as well. Because it will start curing you from inside and will make you resistant for future symptom reversal and present treatment will remove the visible symptoms…..just go on.

Q. what need to be done for the continuation of hormone therapy (HT). what need to be done for the continuation of hormone therapy (HT), when diagnosis of breast cancer is under consideration?

A. It is not recommended to have HT at this stage, but you can ever resume back after the completion of treatment. Breast cells are programmed to respond to certain hormones as signals for growth and multiplication. The most prominent examples of these hormones are estrogens and progesterone. Many breast-cancer cells retain hormone receptors. The hormone receptors therefore make the cancerous cells responsive to these particular hormones. This issue is generally reconsidered after the completion of your evaluation and treatment. You should consult with your physician before you stop or start any new medications.

How long will our leaders continue to sanction this clearly immoral lifestyle? I am getting sick on this and I think our future generations would suffer a lot. I have been doing this for quite a while but I think it is time for me to garner some feedback on the issue. Well if you people in this forum have some social responsibilities please share your views.
