Chemo brain

Chemotherapy/radiation cancer treatments carry an average 2.1% “survival” rate over 5 years. But death isn’t the only “side effect” of chemo/radiation. Most chemo/radiation survivors report difficulties in attention, concentration, multitasking, short-term memory and in learning new material. These symptoms of chemo/radiation effects are exacerbated by treatment-related fatigue, sleep disturbances, anemia, nausea, new digestive problems, plus added stress and anxiety. It is common for cancer patients to have cognitive changes during treatment with nearly 100% of them having difficulty with attention, concentration, memory, multitasking, and so forth. Some of these symptoms never go away after treatment and the more intensive the treatment – the higher the level of persistent cognitive problems. Just one more reason to opt for natural cancer treatments that have much higher remission rates and not just higher “survival” rates.

Chemo is tougher than the human body.
