Yesterday we removed a post regarding non-standard therapies for clear cell ovarian cancer. The reason it was removed was that the poster quoted inaccurate statistics regarding clear cell; made unsubstantiated claims for the efficacy of the treatments; offered clinical opinion without disclosing on what evidence base; and was possibly promoting their own commercial business but was not clear on this. When some of you raised concerns the poster did not respond in a supportive manner. This is all contrary to the purpose of the forum, which is for a safe, supportive environment in which you can share your experiences and knowledge.
However, please know that we do not wish shut down discussion of complementary therapies. Please do continue to discuss your experiences and queries around this topic.
Those of you interested in complementary therapies may be aware of Penny Brohn UK, a charity which offers services, support and information regarding holistic approaches to cancer. They have a forum here on HealthUnlocked:
They also have a helpline for queries: telephone 0303 3000 118 or email email@example.com
