Healthy body during chemo?


Question from Heyjude: I would like to know how you keep your body healthy during chemo. I am going to begin Taxotere for a breast cancer recurrence.
Answers - Raymond Chang There are many things one can do. A lot of it doesn't have to be Chinese medicine. There are so-called tonic herbs that can be taken to help with one's energy. There are many other elements in complementary medicine like supplements, including glutamine which is an amino acid that you can get in the pharmacy. It is increasingly prescribed by mainstream oncologists. It's not a drug and is proven to help in reducing side effects with Taxotere.
