Mesothelioma Survivors Explore Nebulizer Treatments

The New York Asbestos attorneys at The Williams Law Firm, P.C. are aware that cancer survivors engaged in a fight for their lives will explore treatments both traditional and untraditional (or naturopathic).

While weighing the pros and cons of various mesothelioma treatment strategies is a job best left to medical specialists, one tool that appears to be universally helpful and easy for patients to master is the nebulizer.

A nebulizer allows the user to take a drug or supplement through their mouth and/or nose as a vapor mist. It has commonly been used to treat patients with respiratory illnesses or disease.

But here’s a relatively new development for cancer survivors:

Cisplatin, the chemotherapy drug, is now being administered to some mesothelioma patients through a nebulizer.

This drug has been shown to slow the progression of mesothelioma. It was traditionally administered through an infusion pump. But recent advances are making it available for use with a nebulizer.

There also are naturopathic cancer remedies that make use of a nebulizer. For instance, some patients have found great relief for their lungs by “nebulizing” a combination of oleander extract and colloidal silver in addition to lobelia and mullein extracts.

It’s important to note that while many naturopathic cancer remedies are included in clinical trials, few have been proven effective.

Our asbestos attorneys refrain from providing medical advice. But we can talk with clients anecdotally about mesothelioma treatments and services.
