chemo brain

  1. Chemo brain damage can be reversed

    “Chemo brain” is REAL – despite what your doctor says (How to FIGHT BACK)

    Your doctor may claim “chemo brain” – a side effect from chemotherapy -- doesn’t exist.

    Well, maybe EVERY doc who pushes chemo on desperate cancer patients should get a round of it themselves… just once… so they stop ignoring the complaints of their patients.

    Indeed, a new report confirms that “chemo brain” isn’t just REAL...

    It’s actually one of the WORST side effects chemo has to offer.

    And today, we aren’t going to ignore this condition – we’re going to FIGHT BACK.

    This cancer “treatment” DESTROYS brain cells

    Cancer patients often complain of brain fog, memory loss, cognitive problems and more. They can struggle with concentration and “space out” at times, and have difficulties with multitasking.

    It’s called chemo brain, but most mainstream oncologists have BANNED the term.

    They claim it’s NOT real and that even if something is wrong, it’s caused by the cancer – or stress and lost sleep over the diagnosis – and not the chemo itself.

    But a new study proves them wrong once and for all...

    It found that one of the most popular chemo drugs triggers REAL and LASTING damage in three types of critical brain cells.

    It also discovered the “chemo brain” side effect can linger for months or even years after treatments stop.

    That’s because the damage is deep in the brain’s essential “white matter,” home to all the neurons that ensure each part of the brain communicates with the others.

    Indeed, a type of immune cell in the brain was found to be essentially crippled for six months.

    How you can FIGHT BACK

    There are three ways to DEFEAT chemo brain:

    • Start by making sure you absolutely need chemo before you get it. Many patients don’t; some tumors can be handled with minimal surgery such as early-stage breast cancers that can be taken care of with a lumpectomy alone.
    • If you do need chemo, consider intravenous vitamin C. It’s been shown to enhance the treatment – so you need less of it – and also limits side effects.
    • And finally, natural detox therapies can protect healthy cells from the damage of chemotherapy. Omega-3 fish oil, glutathione and citicoline arm those cells so they can better handle the stress of cancer care, including chemo.

  2. Chemo brain can be defeated

    A cure for chemo brain?

    Isn't that convenient?

    The mainstream has spent YEARS pretending that one of chemotherapy's most debilitating side effects wasn't even real.

    It's called "chemo brain" -- and if you've ever been through this toxic therapy yourself, you probably know already that it's all too real.

    Lately, however, mainstream medicine has done a 180, completely reversing itself and admitting that the foggy brain, mood problems, memory loss, and overall problems thinking straight are real side effects of chemotherapy.

    Yes, they're recognizing chemo brain -- and now we know why.

    It's not that to make amends for an honest mistake. And it's not to help patients cope with this life-wrecking side effect.

    It's because they're working on DRUGS to TREAT it!

    Researchers from University of Kansas say an experimental drug could beat this condition by triggering what's known as "heat shock response" in the brain.

    They say that chemo causes high levels of hydrogen peroxide to build up in the brain, causing the damage that leads to those side effects, but that the "heat shock" induced by the drug seems to block it.

    In experiments on mice, the drug seemed to prevent the cognitive problems that often strike after chemo.

    You might think this is pure science for the sake of science, since it's coming from a university.

    But the University of Kansas has an aggressive program to create and then license drugs -- and you can bet they'd love for this one to be their next big success story.

    They've already licensed the same experimental drug in the new study to a company that hoped to turn it into a treatment for diabetic neuropathy.

    That doesn't seem to have gone anywhere -- yet -- so now the university may be trying to give it a second shot by pushing it on a new condition.

    But you don't have to wait for them to dress it up and sell it... and you certainly don't have to put up with whatever side effects it'll pack if and when it's eventually on the market.

    If you're in treatment... or about to go into treatment... you can't wait anyway.

    You need help right now.

    And I've got it.

    First, start by making sure you actually need that chemo in the first place.

    You'd be surprised at how many times it's not strictly necessary, so get a second option.

    And second, if it turns out you DO need chemo, work with a holistic medical doctor on natural detoxifying therapies that can limit the damage and ease side effects such as chemo brain.
