One of the more common complementary therapies used by patients with asbestos cancer is aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is not for all patients and offers no cure for the disease. However, when used in conjunction with other more traditional therapies, aromatherapy has helped many cancer patients lives become much more manageable as they battle their disease.

What’s the problem?
The practice of integrative oncology is becoming increasing prevalent in clinics and cancer centers across the United States. Integrative oncology stresses not only the use of traditional therapies like chemotherapy and surgery, but also alternative, preferential treatments that assist patients in overcoming symptoms of the cancer or traditional therapies. Of the more common practitioners of alternative therapies are mesothelioma cancer patients. Among the methods utilized by some mesothelioma patients is aromatherapy, which can lend itself to a sense of calmness and peace, which can aid sleeplessness and restlessness.
Like most complimentary and alternative therapies, aromatherapy appears to be primarily a palliative mesothelioma treatment; such treatments can be of assistance in coping with the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments, and may indeed have some positive effect on the patient’s emotional and psychological state. This in turn has had the effect of lowering patients’ blood pressure, respiration rate, and anxiety levels.
Of course, this treatment is not for everyone. Alternative medicines are still highly criticized by those who solely believe in conventional medical treatments. It is important for patients to be aware of all available treatment options. Though researchers are still studying the effects of essential oils on the body, promising results in small-scale studies have been recorded.
