I am wondering what purpose and result acupuncture has on a person with brain cancer and why do the Drs. recommend it?

hello! i convinced my husband to go to my acupuncturist (who helped me with several issues) when he was diagnosed with gbm. acupuncture is primarily suggested for cancer patients who have nausea issues - my husband did not. but, overall, it can help keep the immune system strong, help give energy, help with anxiety... just make sure you go to someone good, who is VERY clean and only uses brand new, sterile needles.
ps - i'm going to try to have my husband start going again because his fatigue is sooo horrific (sleeping 20 hrs a day) hopefully it'll help.
