It is a good feeling when researchers confirm something that you have suspected about chemotherapy. Full disclosure- I am not a breast cancer survivor. I am a multiple myeloma survivor. I had high-dose chemotherapy during an autologous stem cell transplant. I feel like my aggressive chemo, radiation, etc. aged me at least the 15 years cited below.
Is there any way, any therapy to delay the loss of organ function in cancer survivors who have undergone chemotherapy? My experience over the past 20 plus years is that yes, organ function can be managed. No I’m not talking about “anti-aging” therapies although you can look at many of the non-toxic therapies that I am talking about as anti-aging because you will live longer, on average, by pursuing these therapies.
I’m talking about the previous blog I wrote about preventing cataracts. Or I’m talking about the blog I wrote about supplementation to reduce my chronic blood clot. The same blood clot that was caused by my chemotherapy…
The good news is that there are therapies that work integratively to either reduce the toxicity of conventional breast cancer chemotherapy or enhance the efficacy of conventional chemotherapies.
In addition to being a cancer survivor I am also a cancer coach. To learn more about non-toxic, non-conventional breast cancer therapies, scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply ASAP.
“Adjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer is ‘gerontogenic,’ accelerating the pace of physiologic aging, according to a new study. The authors conclude, “We have shown that cytotoxic chemotherapy potently induces the expression of markers of cellular senescence in the hematologic compartment in vivo, comparable with the effects of 10 to 15 years of chronologic aging in independent cohorts of healthy donors.”
“Exercise not only appears to keep skin younger, it may also even reverse skin aging in people who start exercising late in life, according to surprising new research…”
