Nothing that works: This is technically a cancer but often it requires no treatment at all. The stuff that actually works, if it needs treatment, is simple. If you get involved with "alternative medicine", you'll end up paying money to cynical, sweet-talking frauds. Instead, get yourself with an evidence-based holist if you're interested in "complementary" stuff for the discomfort of illness.
