Cancer is a dreaded disease which takes thousands of lives every year across the globe ruthlessly, and does not allow people to see the twilight years of their lives. Premature death due to cancer is very common, only a few hospitals deal with it and most of the times they only offer a singular branch of treatment known as Chemotherapy which makes you lose your appetite, hair and the will to live. It is not that chemotherapy is all that bad, many meaningful results have been obtained using this treatment. However, chemotherapy does have its side effects. It does not help, if you start losing your hair and your hunger during this period. Chemotherapy makes use of chemical substances that are given to prolong life, and reduce the symptoms of cancer. This kind of treatment is often used in conjunction with radiation therapy, surgery, etc. Traditional chemotherapeutic agents, kill cells that divide rapidly. This mostly includes cancer cells, but on the flip side, this also kills normal cells, in the bone marrow, digestive tract, and hair follicles. All chemotherapeutic agents cause a depression of the immune system paralyzing the bone marrow leading to a marked decrease in the WBC, RBC and platelet count. Nausea and vomiting along with general gastrointestinal distress become common and this causes malnutrition and dehydration. Immunotherapy, on the other hand involves strengthening of the immune system so that the body itself can fight back the spread of cancerous cells. Immunotherapy helps to destroy and reject cancerous tumors. This is great, because it does not kill and diminish the regular cells of the body, but the body recognizes the cancerous cells and starts to fight them back bit by bit. In addition, there is no visible side effect because no normal cells are being killed. In this manner, a person does not lose weight or appetite or hair. This is a slightly different method of treatment from chemotherapy, because chemotherapy depends almost entirely on external chemicals to kill cells, cancerous or otherwise. Dr Krishna's Cancer Healer Center propagates Immunotherapy as a branch for cancer treatment. Cancer Healer Center has a comprehensive treatment method that does not only rely on the treatment thoroughly but also provides a lot of external stimuli in terms of counseling along with psychological and behavioral support and good diets, to make sure that the person is able to fight cancerous cells away, and slowly start regaining health.
