Curcumin Adjunct Therapy in Patients with Breast Cancer

Researchers investigated the effectiveness and tolerance of the combination of docetaxel (chemotherapy medication) and curcumin in patients with advanced and metastatic breast cancer. At the end of the study, researchers found that 6,000 mg daily for seven consecutive days every 3 weeks in combination with a standard dose of docetaxel was the most effective and best tolerated treatment. With such encouraging results of the effectiveness of the treatment, researchers suggested a comparative phase II trial to be conducted using curcumin plus docetaxel versus docetaxel alone in advanced and metastic breast cancer patients.1

To Our Community

Acupuncture Atlanta is committed to providing quality care and helping you stay healthy in this environment defined by a new normal. Acupuncture at its core is a preventative modality and our practitioners are here to work with you and design a treatment plan that is suitable for your specific needs.

We will also be taking extra protective measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff:

·      All visitors musk wear a mask entering the building, checking in and waiting in the lobby. No exceptions.

·      We are providing disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers for all guests to use in several areas.

·      Each treatment room has a HEPA filter with a built-in UV-C air sanitizer (also used in hospital settings.)

·      Practitioners will wear protective masks and/or gloves.

·      Use of disposable paper sheets or change out sheets in between each patient.

·      Treatment tables and other surfaces will be sanitized after each patient.

·      We try to minimize the number of people waiting in the front lobby - your practitioner may ask you to wait in the car until the room is ready.

Please check your appointment confirmations for specific instructions. Our commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority.
