Leukaemia and the Immune System
16 May 2008
The Chinese medicine approach to the treatment of cancer has always emphasised that supporting the vital energy (qi) is as important as attacking the cancer. This view has been confirmed by research carried out at the Royal Free Hospital in London into leukaemia survivors. It was found that a strong immune system is as important as the right treatment in patients who recover from leukaemia, and that after treatment it is the immune system rather than treatment which is responsible for continued remission. (British Journal of Haematology, 2002; 117).
