There is Hope in Battling Cancer

If you were diagnosed with cancer, what will you do? How would you feel? DABDA. The five stages of dying… Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance. You will undergo these five stages.

Then in between these stages comes different treatments. Like radiation and chemotherapy that in some ways are proven to be effective. But beyond these effective treatments are also a number of side-effects. There is nausea, vomiting, alopecia, fatigue and other ample side-effects that could lower down the immune system. In other words, chemotherapy is not for everyone.

So if chemotherapy is not suited for you? What now?

You search for an option. Like an alternative cancer treatments that can help lessen or help you not to feel the stressful side-effects a conventional chemotherapy caused you. So that you can be functional again.

The answer is a lower dose of chemotherapy or called as Metronomic dosing found in an alternative cancer center.

Metronomic chemotherapy does not deplete the immune system and does not directly target the tumor cells or the dividing cancer cells. Instead it targets the endothelial cells that are feeding the tumor. So, there is little or no side-effect at all.

Traditional chemotherapy further destroys the other normal dividing cells like the mucous membrane, hair cells and intestinal cells which explain the harsh side-effects it provides.

Now, you feel that there is new hope… you can battle cancer while living a normal life. Smile. This is what an alternative cancer treatment can give you.
