Ease of symptoms Chemotherapy

Posted 31 Mar 2015 at 00:24

My Dad is heading into his second Chemotherapy session next week.  2 days after treatment he suffered severe fatigue, loss of appetite, pains in muscles and bones, nausea, and sore mouth.

My sister is making shakes every morning with almond milk, linseed, vanilla and different fruits, so we feel like he is getting vitamins etc.

We are looking at a couple of further options to hopefully help, but I know you have to be careful with chemotherapy. 

Firstly my sister is asking if acupuncture can help?

And I am looking at an old remedy for the stomach when he feels sick called slippery elm,  Has anyone heard of this? And if so can it be used with chemotherapy?

Thank you
