Natural Remedies For Over 200 Illnesses

Post Radiation Therapy

Overview

Radiation therapy uses high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells by damaging their DNA. However, the treatment can damage normal cells as well as cancer cells, so the treatment must be carefully planned to minimize side effects. Radiation used for cancer treatment may come from a machine outside the body, or it may come from radioactive material placed in the body near tumor cells or injected into the bloodstream. A patient may receive radiation therapy before, during, or after surgery, depending on the type of cancer being treated; some patients receive radiation therapy alone, and some receive radiation therapy in combination with chemotherapy.

Radiation therapy can cause both early (acute) and late (chronic) side effects, which can occur months or even years after treatment ends. These side effects may include:

  • Skin irritation
  • Damage to the salivary glands or hair loss (when neck area is treated)
  • Urinary problems (when lower abdomen is treated)
  • Fatigue
  • Fibrosis
  • Damage to the bowels, causing diarrhea and bleeding
  • Memory loss.
  • Infertility (inability to have a child).

Abscess can result from allergic infections, boils, nutritional deficiencies, poor diet, and/or poor immune response. If abscesses are chronic or recurrent, this may be a sign of food, environmental, or chemical allergies. Abscesses may be caused or worsened by decreased immune functioning. In most cases, an abscess should start to clear up in several days. A failure to clear up or bouts of reoccurrences may indicate serious problems with immune functioning and overall health and require professional care. Assess your lifestyle to reduce areas of stress or other problems that may be contributing to a decrease in general health and immune functioning.  Also ensure that you get plenty of rest. If your abscess is recurrent, this may indicate an imbalance in your body and the need for a bowel cleanse and rejuvenation program.

Following radiation therapy, often your diet will have diminished, but a reasonable caloric intake is still required and is important for your body to heal.

Low-fiber foods – Nausea can be one side-effect of radiation treatment, so consuming low-fiber foods is a good option, as they’re better for digestion. Try white rice, noodles, mashed or baked potatoes, skinless chicken or turkey, or fish. Avoid whole-grain beads, beans, nuts, seeds, popcorn, cereal and raw veg.

High potassium foods – Nausea and diarrhea can both occur following radiation treatments; try potassium-rich foods like bananas, oranges and potatoes, along with drinks which are high in potassium (including peach and apricot nectars).

It is important to not add further toxicity to your system so try to adhere to the following:

  • Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
  • Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
  • Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
  • Avoid all fast food restaurants.
  • Avoid all canned food.
  • Eliminate conventional dairy products.  The best dairy products are raw, unpasteurised and homogenised dairy from grass fed cows.  If this is unavailable, then buy organic dairy.
  • Avoid conventional beef.  The best beef is organic grass fed beef.

Supplements:

Dr. Donald Abrams, chief of Hematology and Oncology at San Francisco General Hospital and director of Integrative Oncology Research at the University of California San Francisco’s Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, works with people living with and beyond cancer on a regular basis. Dr Donald Abrams believes in creating an environment in the body that is least conducive to cancer in the hopes of preventing cancer return, stating that nutrients are much better obtained from whole foods rather than vitamin and mineral supplements.

In addition to a healthy diet, Dr Donald Abrams recommends vitamin D, a calcium and magnesium supplement and vitamin C – a powerful antioxidant that may also help combat stress.

  • Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day for periods of 4 weeks at a time.
  • Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met.  The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product.  You can find more details here.
  • Take an Omega 3 supplement:

Krill oil

Fish oil

Cod liver oil

Vegetarian

Prescription and non-prescription medication:

What non-prescription and prescription drugs are you taking?  Your non-prescription and prescription are partially the reason that you have this   illness or disease – you need to get off these medications but do so only under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner.

We know that when the body is out of balance, energy doesn’t flow, leading blockages and eventually disease. Here are some things you can do to combat stress and restore balance:

  • Go to a Dr Morter BEST (Bio-Energetic Synchronisation Technique) Practitioner.
  • Sign up for Energetic Re-Balancing: 2 practitioners to consider are:
