Are there alternative treatments for desmoplastic melanoma?

There aren't necessarily alternative treatments that will help desmoplastic melanoma specifically, and no alternative treatments will cure melanoma. However, when used in conjunction with medical treatment, there are several alternative options that may help improve your overall health. Some people recommend following a strict diet with vitamin supplements, including beta carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Relaxation techniques such as yoga and aromatherapy may help reduce stress levels. Other alternative treatments for people with desmoplastic melanoma may include spiritual activities like meditation and prayer.
