I really wish I had seen this article before I started chemo. I would have tried fasting prior to chemo treatments.
Excerpt from the article
Starving mice for a few days before chemotherapy treatments protected their healthy cells from damaging side effects, offering a possible way to shield cancer patients from the debilitating hair loss, nausea and anemia that now plagues the treatments, researchers reported Tuesday.
The study, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, could also allow the use of more potent chemotherapy doses without endangering patients.
