Chemotherapy Side Effects Treatment
One of the most important aspects of Integrative Oncology is to help the patient to tolerate conventional treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Chemotherapy destroys the cancer cell (cytotoxic effect), but at the same time destroys other healthy cells such as blood cells, causing anaemia and decreased immunity with increased risk of infections. It also destroys the epithelial cells of the digestive system, causing nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea ...
It is important to recover between chemotherapy cycles, as soon as possible, helping the body to tolerate the treatment and to recover once the chemotherapy cycles have finished.
Integrative Oncology uses specific Chinese herbal formulas to boost immunity, to regenerate the cells of the epithelium of the digestive tract and to improve blood microcirculation to help chemotherapy to reach the tumor.
Intravenous Vitamin C at high doses is administered to boost immunity and to remove toxins from chemotherapy.
Intravenous infusions of other vitamins, antioxidants and minerals helps the body recover from chemotherapy and radiotherapy damage.
