Radiation side effects
Therapeutic radiation is commonly used to treat various forms of cancer. Although crude, it can kill carefully-targeted cancer cells in the body, giving the body’s immune system "a leg up" in ridding itself of the disease. Unfortunately, the radiation also destroys other cells in the area and can have a strong immunosuppressive effect, leading to major side effects.
Treatment Plan for Radiation side effects
In some countries, such as Japan, medicinal herb extracts are approved as adjuvants to chemotherapy and radiation therapy to help the body’s immune system recover from the assault of the harsher treatment. Studies show that the consistent use of these immune tonics, along with liver protectors can significantly improve the quality of life and extend life expectancy for cancer patients.
