I don't have to tell you how rough chemotherapy can be on your body. It can cause hair loss, diarrhea, mouth ulcers, low blood count, loss of appetite, vomiting, and more.
But that's not all. While chemotherapy can and does kill cancer cells, it also kills healthy ones. Many times, chemotherapy kills the patient before the cancer does!
Unfortunately, it's difficult to talk friends and loved ones out of taking chemo. That's why I was really glad to hear about an herbal preparation from India that can reduce chemotherapy's toxic effects.

Dr. Srivastava, from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi, reported on 214 breast cancer patients receiving triple chemo. He divided the patients into two groups. The first group, which was the control, had only chemotherapy. The second group had chemo with the herbal treatment.
Dr. Srivastava used a product called Maharishi amrit kalash. This is an Ayurvedic food supplement made up of a variety of herbs and minerals. Its manufacturers say it has 1,000 times the antioxidant power of vitamins C and E.
Doctors will often tell you to shun protective antioxidants. They fear these vitamins will interfere with the chemo's effects on your cancer. But, there's no credible evidence that this happens. And, as you'll see from the results of this study, this preparation can greatly help your ability to tolerate chemo - allowing it to fight the cancer better.
In the study, Maharishi amrit kalash reduced the number of people with vomiting by almost half! It also reduced the number of people with appetite loss by 36%. Perhaps most strikingly, the number of chemo patients who rated their quality of life as "poor" was reduced by a whopping 61%.
Unfortunately, the risks of hair loss, diarrhea, mouth ulcers, and low blood count were not changed. Still, these are fantastic results. If someone you know takes chemo, make sure they get their hands on some Maharishi amrit kalash. You can find it online and by phone at 800-255-8332.
