TCM Treatment and Chemotherapy Treatment Concurrently?

Postby Xpresstuition-2013 » Mon May 13, 2013 10:04 pm

Hello Everyone,
Has anyone you know tried TCM treatment and chemotherapy treatment concurrently? Please share if anyone you know have tried Eu Yan Sang at 273 South Bridge road or TCM treatments from Singapore Thong Chai Medical Institution.

Thanks!

Hi Tankee,

Do you have any idea how lingzhi works? Is it prescribed by the TCM? Thanks for helping. I will do some research on lingzhi.

My mum was on TCM while having chemo, altho not at the 2 locations that you mentioned.
She also took the cracked lingzhi spores. Can buy from GNC or Eu Yan Seng. Make sure you buy the pure lingzhi. For other TCM herbs, better seek advice from a TCM doc first.

Lingzhi is supposed to improve the immune system. patients on chemo have low white blood cells, sometimes so low that the chemo have to be halted. Disrupted chemo will give the cancer cells a chance to grow, and worse become resistant to the original chemo drugs. So lingzhi helps to ensure that the white blood cell levels are maintained at an acceptable level so that chemo can continue. This is the verified benefit of lingzhi.

Other unverified claims include lingzhi helping to fight the cancer. this one dunno how true though.
