What is Chemotherapy?
Chemotherapy is a strong treatment given to cancer patients. It often involves several medications in one. These strong drugs are given to the patient orally or intravenously. Chemotherapy aims to slow down, or stop, cancer cell growth. There are more than 100 different chemo medications. Chemo also aims to also stop cancer tumours forming and spreading. Chemotherapy is systemic which means it affects every cell in the body, not only the cancerous cells.
Cancer patients experience nasty side effects when chemotherapy kills healthy cells. They feel very ill indeed as their healthy cells battle to survive the onslaught of the chemo. Every patient experiences different side effects and different degrees of these side effects.
What are Chemotherapy Side Effects?
Chemotherapy affects every cell in the body. Some cells need to divide quickly but the chemo damages them. White blood cells defend the body against infection but when affected by chemo, the white blood cell count drops. This is called neutropenia and means infections can set in. Red blood cells carry blood around the body. If the red blood cell count drops, anemia (iron deficiency) is the result. The patient feels tired, suffers chest pains and other dangerous symptoms. Platelets are little things in the blood that help to stop bleeding. A low platelet cell count is called thrombocytopenia and results in bruising and bleeding.
Hair falls out as the hair follicle cells are affected. Cancer patients also feel nauseous, vomit and get diarrhea when the stomach lining cells are affected too. Other side affects include shivering, sore mouth, constipation, anorexia, pain when swallowing, swelling hands and feet, itchy skin, difficulty in breathing, coughing and joint or muscle pain.
How can Cannabis Oil Manage the Side Effects?
Cannabis Oil has always relieved the feelings of nausea and the symptoms of vomiting in various illnesses, including cancer. The main cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) can control symptoms of nausea, and the anticipation of nausea that chemotherapy patients feel. The body automatically wants to reject the chemo. THC assists the patient to manage these feelings of nausea.
The cannabis oils also help the patient to better manage the pain. There is often nerve damage when taking chemo. Some patients have said that cannabis oil appeased their excruciating pain, not opiates (prescribed pain killers). Cannabis oil also contributes to better chemotherapy side effect management. The oils can improve sleep patterns, reduce anxiety and boost appetite.
Other studies have reported that cannabis oils reduce swelling in the hands and feet. CBD and THC are anti-inflammatory compounds. Cannabis oil improves constipation, sexual arousal, itching and fatigue issues. It helps to take cannabis oil in conjunction with chemotherapy.
