Are there alternative treatments for Hodgkin's lymphoma?

Hodgkin's lymphoma is treated with conventional treatments like chemotherapy, radiation, and stem cells transplants. However, alternative treatments can be used to help alleviate some of the symptoms of these treatments. You may want to try acupuncture if you feel nauseous after chemotherapy. Massage and aromatherapy can help alleviate your feelings of stress and anxiety. Yoga and meditation have been useful in improving your overall quality of life because they help you relax and visualize positive images. Your doctor can refer you to a nutritionist who will help you create a flexible eating plan. This will help you maintain a healthy weight during treatment and will give you options for eating even when you don't feel your best.
