Dear Sir,

My mother has Carcinoma Cervix.
We continued with the 5 chemo and 25 radio therapy. The chemo did have a lot of side effects like, vomiting,diarrhea etc. At the end of the cycles, the doctors said we need to go for internal radiation. before starting that they found that heart is not very strong and they said, it might be risky. so we discontinued the treatment just one internal radiation less.

For over a month she has been taking simarouba. She has been experiencing Occasional stomach cramps, excessive white discharge and swelling in legs. She stopped talking Simarouba for three four days and says she swelling in the legs is reducing.

Do you advice we continue with Simarouba or try something else. Also if we have to consult a ayurveda doctor, preferably a lady in bangalore, who would you suggest.

I have heard of Sweet wormwood, Artemisia-Absinthium, lemon with baking soda treatment.
Please suggest a way forward.
