Chemotherapy is a life-saving medicine, but the side effects can make life miserable. Fatigue, digestive issues, and mood changes are all very common effects of such treatment. Aid L’Shalom offers numerous supplemental programs as add-on treatments to improve patient wellbeing and enhance the efficacy of chemotherapy—so families can get through the process feeling happier, healthier, and more hopeful.
Our state-of-the-art sensitivity laboratory can save months of unsuccessful therapy by identifying the most promising treatments for each individual cancer. Here, leading cancer specialists obtain live biopsies of patient tumors, test a number of different drugs, and guage the tumor’s response to treatment. This helps oncologists prescribe an ideal treatment course that is both timely and effective.
Acupuncture is a practice originating from ancient Chinese medicine, now widely used by medical practitioners around the world to treat pain, tension, and chronic nausea.
Treatment involves the insertion of very thin needles through the skin at strategic points throughout the body. These needles are believed to stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue in a proactive way, promoting the body’s release of natural painkillers and muscle relaxers.
Nausea, muscle tension, general pain, nerve pain
Reflexology involves the application of massage and deep pressure to the hands, feet, and ears to stimulate healing. The practice is based on the theory that specific pressure points in these areas correspond to the organs and systems of the body.
Many patients find that regular reflexology massage improves their mood, relieves stress, and reduces tension. Some also found relief from digestive issues, peripheral neuropathy, and inflammation.
Stress, anxiety, depression, tension, and muscle pain
Research on the effectiveness and safety of ozone therapy is still ongoing, but preliminary research suggests that ozone therapy may help fight disease, including cancer, by balancing immune response and reversing the body’s oxygen deficits.
Ozone therapy can be conducted in several different ways to prevent accidental inhalation. One of the more common methods involves ozonated water applied to the skin over the affected area.
You be an aid.
God will be your witness.
The name Aid L’Shalom represents two meaningful concepts: In Hebrew, ‘aid’ means ‘witness’ and ‘shalom’ means ‘peace’.
Aid L’Shalom is both an aid to peace and a witness to the life and legacy of Shalom Neuman, founder and originator of the movement to enable integrative access.
