Things to know about Chemotherapy

Hi Folks! Today I am not going to talk about a disease per se. The topic of discussion here is CHEMOTHERAPY.
Actually, from a last few days I have been getting so many queries on Chemotherapy that I had to pen down all that I know about Chemotherapy.

Questions posted by users.
1. Should I go for Chemotherapy or not?
2. What are the side effects of Chemotherapy?
3. What are the alternative treatments for Cancer?
4. Are Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy same?
5. Can we manage the side effects of Chemotherapy?

Do not worry; I am going to answer all these questions here. But before talking about Chemotherapy let’s take a brief note of Cancer ( As Chemotherapy is the treatment given to those suffering from Cancer ).

What is Cancer?
Cells are the main constituents of our body. Our body has a system of replication of cells in a controlled manner. The old cells are continually replaced by the new cells in the body
. However, sometimes the system gets impaired, because of behavioral and environmental changes and the cells replicate on their own. This abnormal growth of cells give rise to CANCER.
So, Cancer is nothing, but the abnormal growth of the cells, which our body is not able to control.
Many studies have already been done and are still going on to find an appropriate treatment for Cancer. And Chemotherapy is one of the treatments.

Now, let me tell you about Chemotherapy….
Chemotherapy is done worldwide to treat Cancer. It is a combination of cytotoxic and anti-neoplastic drugs.
The motto of Chemotherapy is to destroy or to control the abnormally fast growing cancer cells in the Body.
The human body also has healthy cells that replicate very fast , such as, cells in the Digestive tract or stomach lining and in Hair Follicles.
But the Chemo drugs are not able to differentiate between the healthy cells and the Cancerous cells in the body. This is the major and unfortunate drawback of Chemotherapy. So the Chemo drugs attack the healthy cells too and kill them along with the bad cells ( Cancerous cells ). As a result of which the patient loses hair or goes bald gradually with the Chemo sessions. He also suffers with digestive problems such as Diarrhea, Nausea and Vomiting.

Let me enlist the Side Effects of Chemotherapy for you :
Anemia
Nausea
Anxiety
Hair Loss
Arrhythmia
Dehydration
Digestive Problems
Bloody Vomit
Bloated Stomach
Kidney Problems
Cardiac Problems
Weak Immune System
Hormonal Imbalance
Urinary Problems

Are Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy same?
They are not same at all, As the Chemotherapy is done with Drugs and Radiation Therapy is done with Radiations.

---------------

So guys this is all about Chemotherapy. I know that at the advance stages of Cancer doctors recommend to go for Chemo. And unwillingly the patient has to go for chemo and go through the side effects too. I am not saying that one should not go for Chemotherapy , but I suggest you guys, to definitely take the herbs to minimize the side effects of Chemotherapy, so called Cancer treatment.
