There are times when you no one is home and you are your own in the kitchen. You are making some salad for yourself and when slicing the tomatoes you also slice your finger. Now at this time lots of question pop up in mind that weather you should apply bandage on it or go to the ER, or go to Walmart, CVS. The first thing you should do is to go to these CVS or Walmart as these also have drop-in medical clinics that can help you out with your situation as they contain nurses, physicians and even sometime doctors. In these situations they can help you out but if they think that you really need to go to ER they will tell you. If you have medical insurance, then there is chance that your medical insurance company might also contain 24/7 nurse hotline, which in many cases can become very useful.

Energy Therapy: Integrative Healing For Cancer Patients

Medical patients facing a cancer diagnosis should be aware that traditional medical treatment is not their only option. Alternative therapies such as emotional freedom technique (EFT), healing touch, and intuitive bodywork have a place in cancer treatment as well.



Known as energy healing, these alternative healing therapies can benefit cancer patients in a number of important ways. They help patients cope with the emotional and spiritual aspects of living with cancer such as rare diseases like mesothelioma as well as the physical side effects (pain, fatigue, nausea, and vomiting) that can really take their toll on a person's health.

Patients typically feel a tremendous loss of control when they discover they have cancer. EFT and other healing therapies give them a renewed sense of being in control. When integrated with standard medical treatment, alternative therapies offer hope to cancer patients. Even those with the most serious cases are most likely faced with an unfavorable me…
