Chemotherapy Support Benefits + Natural Care Options
- Chemotherapy drugs act by targeting rapidly dividing cells, of the main properties of most cancer cells is that they divide out of control. But this also harms cells that are not cancerous and that divide rapidly like cells in the bone marrow, digestive tract, and hair follicles, that is the reason for common side effects of immune compromise, hair loss and inflammation of the gut or digestive problems.
I take a common sense integrative approach to improving quality of daily life…ie..sleep, eating, energy, weight management, pain. If one is not sleeping well, then they will not feel the best and have the best outcomes. So the bottom line is, how do I help you get the best outcomes while feeling the best you can possibly feel.
- I offer an integrative approach to supporting the body so it can maximize the benefits of treatment. I feel that it’s very important to safely support someone going through conventional treatment. Often the side effects will be responsible for delaying or stopping treatment. If chemotherapy is deemed the best option for you, then my goal would be to support you and your body so that you can complete the recommended treatment in the best possible physical and emotional condition. That is so that your quality of life is good.
I provide my clients with the support they need to help reduce unwanted side effects and protect your immune, digestive, and nervous systems.
The use of most supplements, especially antioxidants is considered highly controversial and must be discussed with your doctor.
