Dealing with side effects of Chemotherapy.

You just learned that you have cancer and you are ready to fight, but you’re nervous about your upcoming chemo treatments.

After your cancer diagnosis, you probably went through a period in which you questioned the meaning of life: “Why me? I’m too young and there are still so many things I want to accomplish.” What may possibly be a death sentence is obviously difficult to accept. But once you move beyond the fear of death, your questions will probably turn towards the effects of chemo.

And these are the questions I want to help you with.

Chemotherapy is one of the techniques used by modern medicine to help treat cancer. And although it is true that it can be very effective against certain types of cancer, the treatment can often cause more damage than the disease itself. In fact, this form of treatment does not differentiate healthy cells from cancerous cells and therefore attacks both.

Your chemo treatment may be daily, weekly or monthly and you may have little or no side effects. If you have any, they will vary depending on the type and dosage of chemotherapy you receive. The most common effects are:

              • Nausea
              • Vomiting
              • Fatigue
              • Pain
              • Hair loss

I am not trying to encourage or discourage you to undergo chemo, because the decision is yours alone and this is about your life. Your doctor will make every effort to make you comfortable and most importantly, to heal you. During chemo, your courage, your determination and your loved ones will be tasked more than ever.

How to minimize the damaging effects of chemo?

Many studies now suggest that certain natural products can help the body fight the harmful effects of chemotherapy, while attacking cancer cells through other mechanisms of action.

One of them is a mushroom called “Chaga“.

Chaga, a fungus known for its medicinal properties, has been widespread in Russia and Asia for centuries. It grows wild on birch trees in cold regions and is 100% natural. In Canada, Chaga grows at -40 ° C in a healthy environment, far away from industrial centers and sources of pollution or radioactivity. Canadian Chaga therefore possesses many more favorable natural health properties than Chaga found elsewhere in the world. The World Trade Organization (WTO) has classified it as a medicinal mushroom.

Here are three good reasons to use Chaga:

  1. Recent research has demonstrated that aqueous extracts (making tea) from Chaga possess potent immunomodulatory effects. These benefits could better protect against damage to your bone marrow and therefore, to your overall immune system. This type of protection is essential during chemotherapy since many patients perish not because of the cancer itself, but because of serious infections (pneumonia and others) contracted due to a compromised immune system.1
  1. Your immune system is vast and complex. It is designed to detoxify your body and protect you from disease and viruses and bacteria. Following chemo, your immune system will be very weak. Chaga is also a very powerful adaptogen — a protein that is produced by the cells of your immune system to defend against viruses, bacteria, parasites and tumor cells. In your case, it will normalize your immune system, which will be vital to your recovery during and between treatments. 2
  1. The melanin contained in Chaga (brown part of the mushroom) helps your body’s immune defenses by protecting them against pathogens. Chaga is therefore also effective against melanoma (highly dangerous forms of skin cancer).3

Some researchers have studied various compounds of Chaga and found that:

  • Polysaccharide extracts from Chaga not only reduce the size of tumors but also lower blood sugar. They promote interferon, which is a method used by white blood cells to cause cell death.4  Polysaccharides do not directly kill the tumor cell, but act as caregivers to help its host (your body) adapt to various biological constraints.
  • The anti-cancer properties of Betulinic acid are now being studied for use in chemotherapy.5   In addition, Chaga does not attack healthy cells.
  • The Inotodiol contained in Chaga has exhibited anti-tumor properties in some breast cancers. Studies at the University of Tokyo have demonstrated efficacy in the destruction of some breast cancer cells (adenocarcinomas).6
  • The Melanin found in Chaga has great antioxidant properties and gene protective capacities. Melanin improves the appearance of hair, skin, eyes and gives us a more youthful appearance. It protects genes, the nervous system, the brain, the pineal gland and repairs cellular DNA.7 It also eliminates free radicals, which will be released in large quantities due to chemotherapy because normal cells will have been damaged.

As you can see, you would greatly benefit from using Chaga.

If you want to try some, I can help you.

How to use Chaga?

You do not eat Chaga, you boil it and drink it like tea. Drinking Chaga tea 3 times a day can definitely help your recovery and increase your vitality. Best results are obtained with regular use. Chaga is an excellent replacement for coffee and drinking it with positive intentions increases its benefits.

Chaga is recognized as a non-toxic tonic. To date, available scientific evidence has shown than its moderate consumption does not cause any major side effects, regardless of the drinker’s age.

Chaga simply stimulates the body in order to help it heal itself.

Always use caution when buying mushrooms, as they are very sensitive to their environment. If they are grown near a city, a nuclear power plant or polluted river, they will absorb all of the contaminants within their reach and are therefore not fit for human consumption. This is why it is so important to know where the mushrooms are from before you buy them.

You deserve the best. How many times have you settled for less, for something that delivers less impact? In your current situation, less is not an option. For my part, I only buy Chaga from Northern Canada and from people who harvest it based on the strictest criteria, otherwise I refuse it. Cancer is a disease that I do not take lightly.

How much are you willing to pay to speed your recover and arm yourself with a powerful ally in the fight against your illness?

Comparative antioxidants based on the above criteria will cost you roughly $30 per bottle and the benefits will last for less than a month. A small investment of $85 for 1Kg of Chaga will give you enough mushrooms to prepare medicinal tea for 6 months. That’s an investment in your health that costs less than $0.50 a day!

Vitamins Details

Vitamin B1, also called thiamin. Vitamin B1 is part of a necessary energy coenzyme, mainly from carbohydrates we eat. It also participates in the transmission of nerve impulses and promotes normal growth.
 
Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin. Like the B1 vitamin, vitamin B2 plays a role in the energy metabolism of our cells. In addition, it contributes to the growth and repair of tissues, the creation of hormones and the formation of red blood cells.
 
Vitamin B3, also called niacin, is involved in many metabolic reactions and particularly contributes to the production of energy from carbohydrates, fats, proteins and alcohol we consume. It collaborates in the process formation of DNA, allowing normal growth and development.
 
Vitamin B5, also called pantothenic acid, is part of a key coenzyme allowing us to use adequately the energy from the food we eat. It also participates in several steps of the synthesis (fabrication) of steroid hormones, neurotransmitters (messengers in nerve impulses) and hemoglobin.
 
Vitamin B6, plays a role in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases in the manufacture of insulin and histamine (a substance that occurs during allergic reactions) in the production and digestion of amino acids. This vitamin is absorbed from the intestine and a large part is found in the muscles.
 
Vitamin C or ascorbic acid is used in the manufacture of collagen, maintaining the immune system, wound healing, in the formation of red blood cells and to facilitate the absorption of iron from vegetables. Cannot be synthesized by the body, it must be drawn from the daily diet. It is soluble in water but very fragile, as air, light and heat can easily alter it.
 
Vitamin D works closely with the health of bones and teeth, making them available calcium and phosphorus in the blood, among others for the growth of the bone structure. It also plays a role in the maturation of the cells, including the immune system. The main source of vitamin D is in the sunlight, because UV exposure triggers the creation of vitamin D in your skin. It is important to have a sufficient amount of this vitamin to allow calcium to be absorbed and used properly.
 
Vitamin E prevents oxidation of certain chemicals in the body. Oxidation is a mechanism associated with the production of free radicals that are involved in the onset of many diseases. Vitamin E protects cell including those of the skin and helps slow aging skin membranes.
 
Vitamin K is one of coagulation. It is fat-soluble; it prevents and treats osteoporosis, inflammatory diseases and cardiovascular disorders.
 
Copper is important in the development of hemoglobin and collagen (protein used in the structure and tissue repair) in the body.  Several copper-containing enzymes in various biochemical reactions contribute to the creation of red blood cells and also in defending the body against free radicals.
 
Selenium this mineral works with a key antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which purges the body of toxins, which contributes to the metabolism of vitamin E which prevents the development of free radicals in the body. It also helps convert thyroid hormones in their active form. The majority of commonly consumed mushrooms have significant amounts of this important mineral which has a positive influence on the brain.
 
Phosphorus is the most abundant mineral in the body after calcium. It plays an essential role in the formation and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. In addition, he participated among others in the growth and regeneration of tissues and helps maintain normal blood pH. Finally, phosphorus is one of the constituents of cell membranes.
 
Potassium is found in large quantities in mushrooms. In the body, potassium is used to balance the pH of the blood and stimulate the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach and promoting digestion. In addition, it facilitates muscle contraction, including that of the heart, and is involved in the transmission of nerve impulses.
 
Iron is into the compounds of each of our cells. This mineral is essential for transporting oxygen and the formation of red blood cells. In addition, it stores oxygen and detects the failure in the blood. It also plays a role in the production of cells, hormones and neurotransmitters (messengers in nerve impulses). Many enzymes depend on the iron supplement for their biochemical processes.
 
Zinc including immune reactions involved in the production of genetic material, the perception of taste, wound healing and the development of the fetus. This mineral also interacts with sexual and thyroid hormones. In the pancreas, it is involved in the synthesis, the reservation and release of insulin.

Explications des vitamines

La vitamine B1, appelée aussi thiamine. La vitamine B1 fait partie d’un coenzyme nécessaire à la production d’énergie, principalement à partir des glucides que nous ingérons. Elle participe aussi à la transmission de l’influx nerveux et favorise une croissance normale.
 
La vitamine B2, est aussi connue sous le nom de riboflavine. Tout comme la vitamine B1, la vitamine B2 joue un rôle dans le métabolisme de l’énergie de toutes nos cellules. De plus, elle contribue à la croissance et à la réparation des tissus, à la production d’hormones et à la formation des globules rouges.
 
La vitamine B3, appelée aussi niacine, participe à de nombreuses réactions métaboliques et contribue particulièrement à la production d’énergie à partir des glucides, des lipides, des protéines et de l’alcool que nous ingérons. Elle collabore aussi au processus de formation de l’ADN, permettant une croissance et un développement normaux.
 
La vitamine B5, également nommée acide pantothénique, fait partie d’un coenzyme clé nous permettant d’utiliser de façon adéquate l’énergie des aliments que nous consommons. Elle participe aussi à plusieurs étapes de la synthèse (fabrication) des hormones stéroïdiennes, des neurotransmetteurs (messagers dans l’influx nerveux) et de l’hémoglobine.
 
La vitamine B6, joue un rôle dans la prévention des maladies cardio-vasculaire, dans la fabrication de l’insuline et de l’histamine (substance qui intervient lors des réactions allergiques), dans la production et la digestion des acides aminés. Cette vitamine est absorbée au niveau de l’intestin et une grande partie se retrouve dans les muscles.
 
La vitamine C, ou acide ascorbique. La vitamine C sert à la fabrication du collagène, au maintien du système immunitaire, à la cicatrisation des plaies, à la formation des globules rouges et à faciliter l’absorption du fer contenu dans les végétaux. Ne pouvant être synthétisée par l’organisme, elle doit donc être puisée dans l’alimentation quotidienne. Elle est soluble dans l’eau mais cependant très fragile, car l’air, la lumière et la chaleur peuvent facilement l’altérer.
 
La vitamine D, cette vitamine collabore étroitement à la santé des os et des dents, en rendant disponibles le calcium et le phosphore dans le sang, entre autres pour la croissance de la structure osseuse. Elle joue aussi un rôle dans la maturation des cellules, dont celles du système immunitaire. La source principale de vitamine D réside dans les rayons du soleil, car l’exposition aux rayons ultraviolets déclenche le processus de création de vitamine D dans votre peau. Il est important de disposer d’une quantité suffisante de cette vitamine pour permettre au calcium d’être absorbé et utilisé adéquatement.
 
La vitamine E, prévient l’oxydation de certaines substances chimiques dans l’organisme. L’oxydation est un mécanisme associé à la production de radicaux libres qui sont impliqués dans l’apparition de nombreuses pathologies. La vitamine E protège les membranes cellulaires notamment celles de la peau et elle contribue à ralentir le vieillissement cutané.
 
La vitamine K, est celle de la coagulation. Elle est liposoluble (soluble dans le gras), elle prévient et traite l’ostéoporose, les maladies inflammatoires et les troubles cardiovasculaires.
 
Le Cuivre est nécessaire à la formation de l’hémoglobine et du collagène (protéine servant à la structure et à la réparation des tissus) dans l’organisme. Plusieurs enzymes contenant du cuivre contribuent à diverses réactions biochimiques, à la création de globules rouges et également à la défense du corps contre les radicaux libres.
 
Le Sélénium ce minéral travaille avec l’un des principaux enzymes antioxydants la peroxydase glutathione, qui purge le corps de ses toxines, qui contribue au métabolisme de la vitamine E ce qui prévient la formation de radicaux libres dans l’organisme. Il contribue aussi à convertir les hormones thyroïdiennes en leur forme active. La majorité des champignons consommés en général ont une quantité significative de ce minéral, qui exerce une influence bénéfique sur le cerveau.
 
Le phosphore, le phosphore constitue le minéral le plus abondant dans l’organisme après le calcium. Il joue un rôle essentiel dans la formation et le maintien de la santé des os et des dents. De plus, il participe entre autres à la croissance et à la régénérescence des tissus et aide à maintenir à la normale le pH du sang. Finalement, le phosphore est l’un des constituants des membranes cellulaires.
 
Le potassium,  se trouve en grande quantités dans les champignons. Dans l’organisme, le potassium sert à équilibrer le pH du sang et à stimuler la production d’acide chlorhydrique par l’estomac, favorisant ainsi la digestion. De plus, il facilite la contraction des muscles, incluant celui du cœur, et participe à la transmission de l’influx nerveux.
 
Le fer, entre dans les composés de chacune de nos cellules. Ce minéral est essentiel au transport de l’oxygène et à la formation des globules rouges dans le sang. De plus, il emmagasine l’oxygène et détecte son insuffisance dans le sang. Il joue aussi un rôle dans la fabrication des cellules, des hormones et des neurotransmetteurs (messagers dans l’influx nerveux). Plusieurs enzymes dépendent du fer pour compléter leurs processus biochimiques.
 
Le zinc, participe notamment aux réactions immunitaires, à la fabrication du matériel génétique, à la perception du goût, à la cicatrisation des plaies et au développement du fœtus. Ce minéral interagit également avec les hormones sexuelles et thyroïdiennes. Dans le pancréas, il participe à la synthèse, à la mise en réserve et à la libération de l’insuline.
