They’ll tell you what to expect when you go into treatment for breast cancer.
Your doctors will warn you of the side effects...
Your friends and loved ones will share their experiences…
And you’ll read plenty about it online.
But then it happens to you, and it’s a whole lot worse than what you expected, because it’s not just one side effect in one place.
It’s a LOT of them… at once… all over your body, inside and out. And nothing you’ve heard or read can truly prepare you for the intensity of it.
Now, new research reveals a way to get some fast and easy relief from some of the worst of those side effects—without having to take a single, extra drug.
The agonizing side effects of cancer drugs
Aromatase inhibitors are often the standard treatment for older women with hormone receptor-positive breast cancer.
The problem is that these drugs are downright toxic!
They’ve been linked to heart problems and bone loss. And between half and two-thirds of the women on the drugs suffer joint and muscle pain.
This isn’t just a little old ache, either.
This is severe pain – pain like you’ve never felt before.
It’s been compared to arthritis or carpal tunnel only WORSE, and in more places. It can hit your hands, wrists, feet, ankles, knees, back and more. And it can make your muscles so sore you’ll feel as if you’ve just lost a fight.
The pain can be so bad that some women have to quit treatment.
Acupuncture can help, but you might not have the time or energy to go to your sessions.
That’s what makes the new study so promising…
It finds tart cherry extract can deliver remarkable results for many women on these drugs for breast cancer.
In the study, women in treatment were given either 1 ounce of tart cherry extract mixed into 8 ounces of water per day or a placebo for six weeks.
The folks on the placebo, naturally, didn’t see much difference at all. They reported an average drop in pain of just 1.4 percent.
But women who got the extract saw an incredible improvement…
Their pain levels fell by more than a third on average (and some women got an even BIGGER benefit).
It’s believed that the flavonoids and anthocyanins in tart cherry can help ease the inflammation in joint and muscle that often leads to that telltale pain.
If you’re in treatment, speak to your doc about adding this potent natural extract to your daily routine.
