Cancer – a dread diagnosis. Nobody wants to receive bad news, unfortunately, most of us will be affected by the disease at some point in our lives.
Conventional approaches such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation can be lengthy and difficult. When managing the side effects of these treatments, people sometimes turn to homeopathy to provide relief. Let’s take a look at some of the ways in which homeopathy can help.
What are Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy?
Radiotherapy and chemotherapy are common conventional approaches to cancer treatment. They are used to shrink or destroy tumors, prevent the spread of cancer, or lessen the likelihood it returns.
Chemotherapy destroys cancer cells with chemicals that may be rubbed onto the skin, injected into the body or swallowed as medicine.
Side Effects of Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy
Common short term effects include nausea and vomiting, fatigue, loss of appetite, and skin burning or pigmentation changes.
Because all rapidly dividing cells in the body are affected by treatment, not just the cancerous cells, some areas are particularly prone to unwanted damage, including hair loss, diarrhea, risk of infection and inflammation.
