Hey all I'm kinda new at this so forgive me.
I'm 22 and just 3 months finished with my ABVD chemo. I was raised to believe in natural medicines and herbs and hated having to go through chemotherapy.
Now that I'm finished I've started a herbal detox program to get the last of the chemo out of my system. I've consulted a Master Herbalist and I'm taking pills to clean out my liver, kidneys, ect. And also something to cleanse my lymph system.
But I'm kind of worried if this is good for me? I've started itching again and I'm kind of freaked out about it. Is the itching due to just the last flushing of the lymph system or could this detox be somehow allowing the cancer to return? I'm feeling kind of stupid and crazy for ever wanting to go natural. And I'm scared I might have done myself damage.
If anyone has any knowledge or insight into this please help. Thanks.
