Hi Rose,

My name is Jessica. My father has been diagnosed with Stage IV Lymphatic Cancer. He is on a heavy regiment of Chemo followed by a Noubagin shot to increase his red blood cells. He goes once every three weeks with one week off. It has been 5 full months and he has recently been saying how he just can't eat as much anymore due to the awful metallic taste in his mouth.  I am so glad I landed this website. Hopefully someone can find an answear for us.

Acupuncture is excellent for alleviate side effects of chemo treatments, including nausea, fatigue, metallic taste in mouth, poor appetite, digestive disturbance and neuropathies.  Good luck, Rose!
