Are there alternative treatments for polypoid melanoma?

Alternative treatments can't cure polypoid melanoma, but when used in conjunction with medical treatment, there are some 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, although there is no proof at this time that such a diet is beneficial. Others find certain relaxation techniques such as yoga and aromatherapy very beneficial. Other alternative treatments for people with polypoid melanoma may include spiritual activities like meditation and prayer.
