Dr. Lang applied a combined treatment made of acupuncture and herbal tea (detoxification with mild herbs). Main purpose had been to facilitate the creation of appetite because the patient was incredible sensitive to any kind of smell due to the chemotherapy.
As a result, the patient became again more receptive to nourishment and felt better until the next cycle of chemotherapy started. The treatment program successfully mitigated the bad side effects from the poison induced by the chemotherapy (e.g. nails turned black, fingertips became black).
