Are There Alternatives To Chemotherapy?
There are many different ways to treat cancer, so yes, there are alternatives to chemotherapy, but bear in mind that if your oncologist has recommended chemotherapy it is because that is the treatment which is best suited to your particular medical needs. However, cancer can also be treated with surgery, with radiation, or less aggressively with palliative care. Some specific cancers have other specific treatments, such as the treatment of breast cancer with tamoxifen. New techniques are being researched all the time. Thalidomide has been used successfully to inhibit the growth of tumors.

Chemotherapy is the use of chemical agents to treat or control disease or mental illness. Sometimes the medical establishment fights cancer with a cancer causing substanc…e: radiation. This has the effect of burning the body internally as well as risking stimulating more cancer. Chemotherapy is when a toxin is instead injected directly into the patient, believing that it will only kill the cancer (and weaker) cells. Chemotherapy suppresses the immune system and creates greater acidosis, which is likely to stimulate even more cancer. In fighting cancer the establishment has used the following methods historically: 1. Smoking (cigarettes) 2. Radiation 3. Surgery and Chemotherapy The most recent strategy is surgery combined with chemotherapy, which stimulates cancers to spread though the blood to additional organs. Someone who survives this for a mere 5 years is considered a "cancer survivor", and a success. I really could not make this stuff up. Google for more information about how doctors recommended brands of cigarettes based upon their health benefits in the 1940's and 1950's. Wait... it gets better. They also tell patients to use sunscreen even though vitamin D is produced in the skin when it is exposed to sunlight. Naturally occurring vitamin D is one of the greatest anti-cancer agents.
You get chemotherapy usually for malignancy. The expert will keep you admitted and then give the drugs, usually in intravenous fluids.
Louis s. goodman and Alfred gilman invented chemotherapy actually!!!
Chemothrapy was first used in around WWI
The use of chemicals for therapeutic effect is called chemotherapy. For example: the use of chemicals in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases
To be honest, not chemotherapy to treat cancer. Here is the situation. Chemical treatment can take care of the problem immediately, but the doctor always says that some …can survive an extended 2 years or 3 years. Some die right away from the chemicals. This is with the late stages of cancer. Now, for the early stages, it helps, but the problem is your health deteriorated. They say the chemotherapy affects cancer cells of your body regular. How many people you know, who was in the late stages of cancer, he lived through you with the passed 5 chemotherapy? I bet you that you have never even heard it. Even if a person is, how many people is to compare because the masses? The problem with other medicines pharmaceautical is that companies can not control this product. Whether the leaves and says, for example. How many people do you know if the purchase of grain can just walk up to any tree and eat a piece off to save themselves? See? Therefore, the United States of America, doctors are aware of these remedies, but they do not talk about them. Try to ask your doctor about green algae, or cesium chloride, or paw paw, etc. etc. and then begins to talk. Otherwise, they wont say a word. If you do not know how to ask? Therefore, the doctors lips closed tight. Individual doctors on the other hand, are sometimes afraid to talk about that. It is because, if opened their mouths, and they will face the medical community at large. Many of them engage in the medical field to help people, and go in some money. However, the highest rank in control of all of it money. If were not won on their position at all. I do not suggest you go with chemotherapy. You can search for some alternative medicine for cancer and they are everywhere on the Web. Best ranked one cesium chloride, paw paw, along with others. Some health posts to have a place where you can go and tell them of your cancer stage and type of cancer, and that they will sell you a problem on the basis of your own individual. There are also some doctors scattered throughout the United States of America specializing in cancer. You did not hear about them right? Well, they wont be bothered by the medical community, if they do a small operation without much advertising. However, each of the 90% survival rates of cancer, regular cancer abandon its doctors. If the doctor didn't give up, do you expect to live anyway? No. I am speaking out of you because I do not tend to die like you two of my friends who have already died. He said some doctors so that they can treat with 80% survival rate. However, I didn't have the money to help them. , And I speak in the hope that nothing happens to you and you survive. Regardless of the stage of your cancer. Cesium chloride was the best that can be done. Find him, everywhere. Oxygen drops to help. You can use both at the same time. What is with these alternatives is that some make you feel very bad in the beginning, but after a while you get used to it, and then you went with cancer before you know it. CV so frustrated. Keep the oxygen drops of cancer because of the increasing your body can live with more oxygen. As a matter of fact, it helps to circulate blood. Cancer can not live at the sight of oxygen. It has been said that not enough oxygen is what causes cancer. I do not know what the reason is because there are many reasons. However, cesium chloride and oxygen drops will take care of it. And more one thing, some of these remedies can not be sold as a treatment for cancer. Therefore, it is sold vitamins. However, on its Web site, allowing them to say what remedies. However, signs can not say a word about cancer. Therefore, you must begin vitamin section of the Internet. Good luck, my friend.
can range from fatigue or flu like symptoms to hair loss and blood clots

It depends on the type of chemotherapy. My son was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. His protocol called for several different chemo drugs to be administered intrav…enously. He also takes two types of chemo drugs in a pill form.

Radiotherapy is the process of applying radiation on the tumors [gamma rays]. Chemotherapy is the process of using drugs to destroy the tumors. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy u…sually comes with surgery; it also appears more frequently in higher stages of cancer [stages 3, 4].
Treating the patient who has no evidence of residual disease but who is at high risk for recurrence
Chemotherapy given by intramuscular injection is absorbed into the blood more slowly than IV chemotherapy. Because of this, the effects of IM chemotherapy may last longer than… chemotherapy given intravenously.
Oral chemotherapy is given by mouth in the form a pill, capsule, or liquid. This is the easiest method and can usually be done at home.
There may or may not be alternative medicine for chemotherapy. It all depends on why you are have chemotherapy. You should talk to your doctor about alternatives and what is r…ight for you. You can also see other specialists and get multiple opinions on your situation.
