Avoiding Cancer Treatment Side Effects, Part 1


Dr. Mary Hardy is a pioneer, having founded the Integrative Medical Clinic at prestigious Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles in 1998. From there she went on to become Medical Director of the UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology. She discusses how supplements can be properly combined with conventional treatments like chemo, radiation and immunotherapy. What are some of the pitfalls to be avoided? What nutraceuticals can be safely used while undergoing cancer care? How can they be used to ameliorate side effects like neuropathy, fatigue, and low white blood cell counts? Why it’s important to work with an integrative oncologist to tailor treatment. Dr. Hardy discusses the background of a modern iteration of an old remedy—fermented wheat germ, now called Metatrol. Its efficacy in supporting cancer patients during treatment has been validated in numerous studies. It may also provide overall energy and immune-supportive benefits. Click HERE for part 2.
