Just wanted to mention and get some other's thoughts on taking something to help with side-effects of chemo. I am currently on the FOLFOX treatment and the effects (fatigue, loud noises bothering me, neuropathy, muscle spasms and cramping, and nausia) seem to be hitting me pretty hard. I got the standard compazine for nausea. I have found that drinking Essiac Tea has helped me deal with chemo. by leaps and bounds. I would recommend if you are going to try it, to do research. I'm not a doctor, I'm just telling my experience. Just my little disclaimer,haha. Since beginning to drink the tea three times a day, I have had an increase in energy, my wife says my color is much better, and who knows, maybe Renee Caisse did have a cure (that will never be admitted by "them"). In any case, it has done wonders in how I feel most of the time. But like all the doctors have said, "everyone is different".
