Fu Zhen Therapy (also Fu Zheng)
Fu Zhen therapy is an immune enhancing herbal regimen of Chinese herbs often used as an adjunct cancer therapy. In Fu Zhen therapy, the objective is to support and stimulate deep energy systems within the body to make it stronger and more resistant to degeneration.

"The use of Chinese herbs is an important component of anticancer protocols. Life expectancy increased for patients with rapidly advancing cancers when Chinese herbs were added to their treatment plan, and their life quality also improved."

­ "Journal of American Medicine Association (JAMA)"
