Treating cancer is a complex and much debated issue and after weighing up the options there are those who chose chemo and radiation therapy as a way to deal with this life-threatening illness.
Chemotherapy targets cancer cells which divide at a rapid pace and have gotten out of control, but this results in other fast dividing cells in your body also getting the brunt of the chemotherapy chemicals too, causing problems with things like your digestion and causing hair loss.
Radiation therapy uses high energy waves to kill cancer cells and can also lead to side effects such as nausea, fatigue and skin issues, as well as possible longer term effects such as lung or heart problems.
There are natural supports you can use to help your body sustain as little damage as possible while you receive treatment and Faithful to Nature has put together a pack of products to help those who would like some loving support from Mother Nature in their journey…
