Chemotherapy given for cancer–or other conditions, such as autoimmune diseases–can, unfortunately, cause nerve damage (neuropathy).
Patients may or may not develop neuropathy based on which medications they are taking. Platinum-based chemotherapies in particular will usually cause neuropathy. Patients who undergo hormone or radiation therapy in addition to chemotherapy also have a high chance of developing peripheral neuropathy.
Symptoms of chemotherapy neuropathy include tingling, numbness, and burning, usually in the hands, feet, and legs. The good news is, a neurostimulator is a drug-free alternative that can actually be used during chemotherapy. Other options light therapies such as include Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) and LED Therapy. Manual therapies such as massage and spinal and joint manipulation are also crucial. Work with your team of medical professionals to find out which combination of these work best for you.

IMMUNE HEALTH SERIES:
While there is no “cure” for the over 100 known types of cancer, there are many different treatments available, including chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
Increasing numbers of cancer patients are seeking caner treatments and treatment recovery modalities that are now included in the category of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). and at Immune Recover and Wellness Clinic we
CAM therapies are commonly used to:
empower patients by providing them with options and information they can use to take a personal interest and play in important role in their own care and recovery;
help patients cope with the nausea, pain and fatigue associated with conventional cancer treatments;
give patients a means by which they can manage the stress and emotional trauma often caused by a cancer diagnosis and resulting treatments;
assist patients in discovering their optimal levels of health, so that their bodies are best equipped to heal. Listen in on this interesting episode as Bobbie talks about the alternative chemotherapy recovery and revitalization treatments available to you.
Tune in for an informative discussion with Dr. Barbara Biller, Veterinarian and Assistant Professor of Oncology at Colorado State University Animal Cancer Center
The primary focus of Dr. Biller’s research is on the interactions between the anti-tumor immune response and metronomic chemotherapy. Recently she completed a study for Morris Animal Foundation (MAF) in which she evaluated metronomic chemotherapy treatment on dogs with soft-tissue sarcoma.
During the study, it was Dr. Biller’s mission to learn more specifics on how to treat dogs using metronomics. She says:
“Even though veterinarians have been using metronomic chemotherapy on patients, we have been guessing on important factors like what drugs we should use, what dose is needed and at what intervals we should treat the patient. We hope to determine some of those factors.”
Dr. Biller is also involved in a number of collaborative studies with investigators at the University of Colorado Cancer Center and the Garden State Cancer Center evaluating immunotherapies in dogs with lymphoma and brain tumors.

Please join Health Educator & Life Coach, Erica Haray-Butcher, as she talks with Adam, a St. Jude Leukemia patient. Adam is inviting you to make "every day count" through acts of kindness and compassion.
Adam was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L.) July 29, 2014 at St Jude Children's Research Hospital. After an incredible summer of travelling, college visits, and preparing for his junior year of high school, he began to experience pain in his hands. Concerned about possible arthritis, family friend, Dr. Hugh Holt ran some basic blood tests. No one would have imagined Hugh would tell Adam, this easy going, healthy, all around nice guy, that he had cancer. Life will never be the same for Adam, his family, or his friends.
St. Jude's A.L.L. treatment requires daily or weekly chemo treatment for 2 and 1/2 years (until Jan. 2017) followed by annual checkups for 7 more years (until 2024) before they can declare Adam cured. Adam decided to call his support community, "Adam's Army" because he believes together he will be healed and along the way the Army can help heal the world.
Please join Erica and Adam as they talk about his health journey, the lessons he's learned, and his mission of making every day count. Trust me, you don't want to miss this conversation. It will be full of hope and inspiration to us all.

A healthy approach to the prevention and treatment of cancer
My info isn't to replace your Doctors it's to add to your arsenal. I'm just a film maker. That being said these days, going to your doctor is not enough due to the fact that the medical business is just that: a business. Therefore, it offers only those treatments that are lucrative for the medical industry. Those treatments have a dismal long-term remission rate, and they are only a tiny slice of what's available for treating cancer and what has worked for other people. Therefore, if you want to make sure you are doing everything you can to cure your cancer, and if you are willing to take responsibility for your own life, you must not only go to your doctor but also do your own research in order to learn about options that could either complement or replace conventional, Western methods (chemotherapy, radiation and surgery). These methods work for some but also have serious and sometimes fatal side effects. I am not a Doctor, nor am I offering a cure to anyone. The "i" in i cure cancer.com refers to 'you', the person who is logging on to the site in search of information regarding what other fellow human beings have done in battling this horrendous disease. In short as with any matter of importance dealing with one's well being, the first step is in taking responsibility for one's self. To gather as much information on the subject as possible in order to make educated assessments on what would work best for them.
Two Alarming reports are revealed in this Holistic Healing Hour broadcast. The first is that insulin injections result in doubling the risk of death in T2 diabetics. The second is that what the cancer industry calls breast or prostate cancer may be a false alarm. Find out the truth on this broadcast.
I will be discussing this outrage to the Human race and the cure for CANCER!!!
Burzynski, the Movie is an internationally award-winning documentary originally released in 2010 (with an Extended Edition released in 2011) that tells the true story of a medical doctor and Ph.D biochemist named Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who won the largest, and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing legal battle against the Food & Drug Administration in American history.
His victorious battles with the United States government were centered around Dr. Burzynski's gene-targeted cancer medicines he discovered in the 1970's called Antineoplastons, which have currently completed Phase II FDA-supervised clinical trials in 2009 and has been given permission by the FDA to begin the final phase of FDA testing–randomized controlled clinical trials.
When Antineoplastons are approved, it will mark the first time in history a single scientist, not a pharmaceutical company, will hold the exclusive patent and distribution rights on a paradigm-shifting medical breakthrough.
Antineoplastons are responsible for curing some of the most incurable forms of terminal cancer. Various cancer survivors are presented in the film who chose these medicines instead of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation - with full disclosure of medical records to support their diagnosis and recovery - as well as systematic (non-anecdotal) FDA-supervised clinical trial data comparing Antineoplastons to other available treatments—which is published within the peer-reviewed medical literature.

Steven Lewis has written a new book about surviving pancreatic cancer. Joyce speaks with him about his experience, and the advice he would give to other cancer patients.
In what his physicians have called a “miraculous recovery,” Steven Lewis, Ph.D., a visiting professor in the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University, has beaten all odds surviving two bouts of pancreatic cancer. Lewis was first diagnosed with the disease in 2007, and again almost three years later when the cancer metastasized to his liver. He has persevered major surgeries, radiation treatments and chemotherapy.
With the highest mortality rate of all major cancers, pancreatic cancer patients have less than a five percent survival rate within five years of diagnosis, and 74 percent of patients die within the first year of diagnosis. It is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. with an estimated 46,420 Americans diagnosed each year. Pancreatic cancer is one of the few cancers for which survival has not improved substantially over nearly 40 years. In recent years, pancreatic cancer has received considerable attention because many well-known individuals such as Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, actor Patrick Swayze and opera singer Luciano Pavarotti have died from the disease.
Following the surgery to remove the cancer in his liver, Lewis has been cancer free and in excellent health for more than four years. Along with his outstanding team of physicians, Lewis credits his ability to maintain an extremely positive attitude with saving his life. As an exercise physiologist, researcher and teacher, he leads a vigorous life, exercising regularly to maintain a high level of physical fitness and health.
