Chemotherapy side effects
Chemotherapy for cancer treatment is often designed to kill fast-growing cancer cells. Unfortunately, cells in the intestinal wall and hair follicles are also fast-growing and can also be killed by the chemotherapy. As a result, it is not uncommon to experience such side effects as nausea, digestive disorders, and loss of hair after chemotherapy.
Treatment Plan for Chemotherapy side effects
One of the best strategies during and after chemotherapy is to rid the body of dead cells and other toxic by-products. Herbal treatment usually consists of blood purifiers, immune stimulants if the white blood cell count is lowered by the chemotherapy, medicinal mushrooms to strengthen the immune response, adaptogens to help keep the hormonal system balanced and counteract stress, and liver protectants. Ginger root can be used to reduce nausea.
