All too often, it’s sold as a “simple” treatment for breast cancer. They make it sound almost like a cakewalk.
“Just” a lumpectomy with a side of radiation.
The trouble is they’re leaving out some key details. And one of those is just how MISERABLE that “simple” treatment is about to make you feel.
The truth is radiation treatments for breast cancer can come with severe side effects. You could end up suffering in ways you were never prepared for.
And perhaps worst of all is your own doctor might not even acknowledge they exist. But new research reveals the disturbing truth about the side effects of this supposedly “simple” treatment for breast cancer.
But don’t despair. I’ve also got a way you can FIGHT BACK and FEEL BETTER.
Docs missing radiation side effects
The new study looked at both ends of the coin. Scientists worked to pinpoint both the side effects of treatment and what doctors are doing about them. And let’s just say what they uncovered wasn’t pretty.
Many breast cancer patients getting radiation after their lumpectomy battled debilitating problems, including:
- 19 percent struggled with fatigue
- 31 percent suffered from pain
- 37 percent felt itchy
- 51 percent battled swelling
But it gets worse. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the scientists stumbled onto something else equally as disturbing.
It turns out a ton of doctors were completely MISSING many of these patients’ problems. In fact, over half… 53 percent… were identified as having “under-recognition” of one or more side effects.
In other words, the one person you rely on to prepare you for side effects and help you work through them when they do occur wasn’t even acknowledging they existed.
Battle breast cancer… and side effects… naturally
Now, you might think there’s not much you can do about those side effects even if your doctor RECOGNIZES what you’re going through. Many breast cancer patients feel this way. So they silently suffer through sickening side effects because they believe they have to.
But that’s simply not true.
There’s a step you can take if you’re going into treatment, or even if you’re in treatment right now, that could make a world of difference. And that is to take a single vitamin that doesn’t get anything close to the attention it deserves.
It’s humble vitamin C, which studies show may be able to help in three powerful ways. Vitamin C can…
- help FIGHT the cancer directly
- ENHANCE treatments, so they’re more effective
- EASE the side effects of those treatments
There’s just one downside. You can’t get the levels of vitamin C needed for breast cancer treatment from capsules or tablets. Your stomach just can’t handle those doses.
You can ONLY get it delivered intravenously, so speak to your doctor about this life-changing add-on therapy. If he’s not familiar with IVC, look for a doctor who practices integrative medicine to add to your team.
He will be able to administer the IVC and recommend other natural complementary therapies to help limit side effects both during the breast cancer treatment itself and in the weeks and months that follow as you recover.
