Stage I colon cancer cannot be treated through alternative treatments. However, they can help treat the stress and anxiety of a stage I colon cancer diagnosis. Exercise, meditation, and relaxation therapies are common for reducing stress. Creative therapies such as art, dance, movement, and music therapy are also popular. Though they do not treat the cancer itself, they may help the sad, angry, stressed, or fearful feelings a person has after diagnosis.
