What is chemotherapy?

Chemotherapy is the use of medication (chemicals) to treat disease. More specifically, chemotherapy typically refers to the destruction of cancer cells. However, chemotherapy may also include the use of antibiotics or other medications to treat any illness or infection.
158401-chemotherapy

Factors that play a role in side effects include other ongoing treatments, previous health issues, age, and lifestyle. Some patients experience few side effects while others feel quite ill. Although most side effects clear up shortly after treatment ends, some may continue well after chemotherapy has ended, and some may never go away.
Chemotherapy drugs are most likely to affect cells in the digestive tract, hair follicles, bone marrow, mouth, and reproductive system. However, cells in any part of the body may be damaged.

Chemotherapy drugs work in various ways:
• Impairing mitosis (prevent cell division) – these are known as cytotoxic drugs.
• Targeting cancer cell’s food source,enzymes and hormones,require in order to grow
*Stopping the growth of new blood vessels that supply a tumor
Chemotherapy (chemo) drugs interfere with a cancer cell’s ability to divide and reproduce. Chemo drugs may be applied into the bloodstream to attack cancer cells throughout the body, or they can be delivered directly to specific cancer sites

.
When to get urgent medical advice
While the side effects of chemotherapy can be distressing, most do not pose a serious threat to your health.
However, occasionally some side effects can be very serious. For example, if you have a rapid fall in white blood cells, you may be vulnerable to a serious infection.
People having chemotherapy for cancer of their blood cells or bone marrow are most at risk of serious infections. This is because this type of cancer will already have caused a reduction in white blood cell numbers.

Symptoms of a serious problem include:
• a high temperature of 38°C (100.4°F) or above
• shivering
• breathing difficulties
• chest pain
• flu-like symptoms, such as muscle aches and pain
• bleeding gums or nose
• bleeding from other parts of the body that does not stop after applying pressure for 10 minutes
• mouth ulcers that stop you eating or drinking
*vomiting that continues despite taking anti-sickness medication
*four or more bowel movements a day, or diarrhoea

Circulatory and Immune Systems
Routine blood count monitoring is a crucial part of chemotherapy. That’s because the drugs can harm cells in the bone marrow, where blood is produced. This can result in several problems. Red blood cells carry oxygen to tissues. Anemia occurs when your body doesn’t produce enough red blood cells, making you feel extremely fatigued. Other symptoms of anemia include:
• lightheadedness
• pale skin
• difficulty thinking
• feeling cold
• general weakness
Chemo can lower your white blood cell count, which results in neutropenia. White blood cells play an important role in the immune system: they help fight infection and ward off illness. Symptoms aren’t always obvious, but a low white blood cell count raises the risk of infection and illness. People with an immune system weakened by chemotherapy must take precautions to avoid exposure to viruses, bacteria, and other germs.

Cells called platelets help the blood clot. A low platelet count, called thrombocytopenia, means you’re likely to bruise and bleed easily. Symptoms include nosebleeds, blood in vomit or stools, and heavier-than-normal menstruation.
Some chemo drugs can weaken the heart muscle, resulting in cardiomyopathy, or disturb the heart rhythm, causing arrhythmia. This can affect the heart’s ability to pump blood effectively. Some chemo drugs can increase the risk of heart attack. These problems are less likely to occur if your heart is strong and healthy at the start of chemotherapy.

Nervous and Muscular Systems
The central nervous system controls emotions, thought patterns, and coordination. Chemotherapy drugs may cause problems with memory, or make it difficult to concentrate or think clearly. This symptom sometimes is called “chemo fog,” or “chemo brain.” This mild cognitive impairment may go away following treatment, or may linger for years. Severe cases can add to anxiety and stress.
Some chemo drugs can cause pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling in the hands and feet (peripheral neuropathy). Muscles may feel tired, achy, or shaky. Reflexes and small motor skills may be slowed. It’s not unusual to experience problems with balance and coordination.

Digestive System
Some of the most common side effects of chemotherapy involve the digestive tract. Mouth sores and dry mouth can make it difficult to chew and swallow. Sores also may form on the tongue, lips, gums, or in the throat. Mouth sores can make you more susceptible to bleeding and infection. Many patients complain of a metallic taste in the mouth, or a yellow or white coating on the tongue. Food may taste unusual or unpleasant.
These powerful drugs can harm cells along the gastrointestinal tract. Nausea is a common symptom, and may result in bouts of vomiting. However, anti-nausea medications given in conjunction with chemotherapy drugs can help alleviate this symptom.

Other digestive issues include loose stools or diarrhea. In some people, hard stools and constipation can be a problem. This may be accompanied by pressure, bloating, and gas. Take care to avoid dehydration by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.
Side effects involving the digestive system can contribute to loss of appetite and feeling full even though you haven’t eaten much. Weight loss and general weakness are common. Despite all this, it’s important to continue eating healthy foods.

Hair, Skin, and Nails (Integumentary System)
Many chemotherapy drugs affect the hair follicles and can cause hair loss (alopecia) within a few weeks of the first treatment. Hair loss can occur on the head, eyebrows, eyelashes, and body. As troubling as it can be, hair loss is temporary. New hair growth usually begins several weeks after the final treatment.
Some patients experience minor skin irritations like dryness, itchiness, and rash. You may develop sensitivity to the sun, making it easier to burn. Your doctor can recommend topical ointments to soothe irritated skin.
Fingernails and toenails may turn brown or yellow, and become ridged or brittle. Nail growth may slow down, and nails may crack or break easily. In severe cases, they can actually separate from the nail bed. It’s important to take good care of your nails to avoid infection.

Sexual and Reproductive System
Chemotherapy drugs can have an effect on your hormones. In women, hormonal changes can bring on hot flashes, irregular periods, or sudden onset of menopause. They may become temporarily or permanently infertile. Women on chemotherapy may experience dryness of vaginal tissues that can make intercourse uncomfortable or painful. The chance of developing vaginal infections is increased. Chemotherapy drugs given during pregnancy can cause birth defects. In men, some chemo drugs can harm sperm or lower sperm count, and temporary or permanent infertility is possible.

Symptoms like fatigue, anxiety, and hormonal fluctuations may interfere with sex drive in both men and women. So can worrying about loss of hair and other changes in appearance. However, many people on chemotherapy continue to enjoy an intimate relationship and an active sex life.

Kidneys and Bladder (Excretory System)
The kidneys work to excrete the powerful chemotherapy drugs as they move through your body. In the process, some kidney and bladder cells can become irritated or damaged. Symptoms of kidney damage include decreased urination, swelling of the hands and feet (edema), and headache. Symptoms of bladder irritation include a feeling of burning when urinating and increased urinary frequency.
You’ll be advised to drink plenty of fluids to flush the medication from your system and to keep your system functioning properly. Note: Some medications cause urine to turn red or orange for a few days. This isn’t cause for concern.

Skeletal System
Most people—and especially women—lose some bone mass as they age. Some chemotherapy drugs can cause calcium levels to drop and contribute to bone loss. This can lead to cancer-related osteoporosis, especially in post-menopausal women and those whose menopause was brought on suddenly due to chemotherapy.
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), women who have been treated for breast cancer are at increased risk for osteoporosis and bone fracture. This is due to the combination of the drugs and the drop in estrogen levels. Osteoporosis increases the risk of bone fractures and breaks. The most common areas of the body to suffer breaks are the spine and pelvis, hips, and wrists.

Psychological and Emotional Toll
Living with cancer and dealing with chemotherapy can exact an emotional toll. You may feel fearful, stressed, or anxious about your appearance and your health. Some people may suffer from depression. Juggling work, financial, and family responsibilities while undergoing cancer treatment can become overwhelming.
Patients may receive monotherapy or combination therapy:
• Monotherapy – the patient is given just one drug.
• Combination therapy – the patient receives more than one drug.
Which type the patient receives will depend on the kind of cancer the patient has, as well as some other health considerations.

Chemotherapy may be given at different stages
• Neo-adjuvant therapy – if the tumor is large the surgeon may want to shrink it before surgery. This may involve some pre-operative chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy.

Chemoradiation therapy – the chemotherapy is given in combination with radiotherapy. Patients with localized Hodgkin’s lymphoma where the tumor is situated above the diaphragm should be given chemotherapy combined with radiotherapy,

How long is a course of chemotherapy?
In the majority of cases for best results the patient will need regular chemotherapy over a specific period. A protocol plan is drawn up which specifies when treatment sessions will occur and for how long.

A course of chemotherapy may be just a one-day treatment, or can last for a few weeks – it will depend on the type and stage of the cancer (how advanced it is). If the patient requires more than one course of treatment there will be a rest period for his/her body to recover. This could be a one-day treatment followed by a week’s rest period, followed by another one-day treatment followed by a three-week rest period, etc. This may be repeated many times.

Horrors-Cirrhosis-lg

A number of diseases can affect the liver such as acute and chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis and tumors. The underlying causes of these disease states include viral infections like hepatitis A, B and C alcohol,  by long-term overuse of drugs or other toxins (poisons), metabolic disorders and immunological factors.

 Although there are several different types of  hepatitis, hepatitis B is a type that can move from one person to another through blood and other bodily fluids. It can be transmitted through sexual intercourse and through needles — such as those shared by intravenous drug or steroid users who have the virus, or tattoo needles that haven’t been properly sterilized. A pregnant woman can also pass hepatitis B to her unborn baby. You cannot catch hepatitis B from an object, such as a toilet seat.

What Are the Symptoms?

  • ·        hepatitis B may have symptoms similar to those caused by other viral infections, such as the flu
  • ·        tiredness,-feel tired
  • ·        nausea  and vomiting
  • ·         pain underneath the right ribcage where the liver is.
  • ·        feel sick to your stomach
  • ·        have a fever- mild fever
  • ·        not want to eat- loss of appetite
  • ·        have stomach pain as well as abdominal pain
  • ·        have diarrhea

Some people have

Hepatitis B can also cause jaundice,

  • ·        dark yellow urine- may cause the urine to appear brownish
  • ·        light-colored stools
  • ·        yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes (yellowish eyes )

How Long Until Symptoms Appear?

Someone who has been exposed to hepatitis B may have symptoms 1 to 4 months later. Some people with hepatitis B don’t notice symptoms until they become quite severe. Some have few or no symptoms, but even someone who doesn’t notice any symptoms can still transmit the disease to others. Some people carry the virus in their bodies and are contagious for the rest of their lives.

What Can Happen?

Hepatitis B can be very dangerous to a person’s health, leading to liver damage and an increased risk of liver cancer. Of babies born to women who have the hepatitis B virus, 90% will have the virus unless they receive a special immune injection and the first dose of hepatitis B vaccine at birth.

How Is It Prevented?

Hepatitis infection can be serious, but knowing what puts you at risk can help protect you.Because hepatitis B can easily be transmitted through blood and most body fluids, it can be prevented by:

  • ·        abstaining from sex (not having oral, vaginal, or anal sex -all types of sexual intercourse)
  • ·        health care wear gloves at all times  .  be sure avoiding contact with an infected person’s blood
  • ·        not using intravenous drugs or sharing any drug paraphernalia
  • ·        not sharing things like toothbrushes or razors
  • ·        Avoid eating raw shellfish (such as clams or oysters).
  •          You could put yourself at risk for hepatitis A if the shellfish was harvested from contaminated water.
  • ·        If you are thinking about getting a  piercing, be sure the shop sterilizes needles properly.
  •           Poorly sterilized or nonsterile needles put people at risk for hepatitis B or C.

 For this reason, it’s especially important to see a doctor quickly after any possible exposure to the virus.

dfgjkHow Is It Treated?

If you think you may have hepatitis B or if you have been intimate with someone who may have hepatitis B, you need to see your doctor or  gynecologist, who will do blood tests. Let the doctor know the best way to reach you confidentially with any test results.

If your doctor diagnoses hepatitis B, you may get medicines to help fight it. Sometimes, people need to be hospitalized for a little while if they are too sick to eat or drink. Most people with hepatitis B feel better within 6 months.

Faham Tentang Homeopathy

Masih lagi yang ingin mengetahui apa itu  kaedah rawatan homeopathy ?. kegagalan memahami dengan tepat apa sebenarnya Homeopathy  menjadikan mereka takut untuk mencuba:

“Homeopathy perubatan tradisional  ?
Homeopathy , kaedah rawatannya sangat berbeda dari segi falsafah dan kaedah merawat berbanding  dengan rawatan tradisional.Homeopathy menggabungkan sains dan seni di dalam rawatannya. Ia melihat penyakit dan kaedah penyembuhan (termasuk penyediaan ubat-ubatan) di dalam perspektif yang unik bertunjangkan kajian sains dan analisa yang logikal dan berilmiah. Homeopathy tidak mengubal hukum-hukum perubatan berdasarkan agak-agakan semata sebaliknya melalui kajian ilmiah yang mendalam oleh mereka-mereka yang berpengalaman luas di dalam bidang perubatan moden. Malah pengasas Homeopathy sendiri adalah seorang doktor iaitu Dr. Hahnemann yang aktif bertugas pada awal abad ke 19. Kekecewaan beliau kepada apa yang dipanggil rawatan “moden” yakni rawatan kedoktoran yang ada hari ini menyebabkan beliau mencari kaedah lain yang menepati fitrah manusia itu sendiri. Kaedah rawatan tersebut dinamakan Homeopathy yang berasaskan kepada rawatan “Simila Similibus Currentur” yang bermakna “sesuatu yang serupa menyembuhkan yang serupa”. Di dalam bahasa mudah rawatan Homeopathy memerlukan kita melihat tahap kesihatan seseorang pesakit secara holistik (menyeluruh) pada suatu ketika dan memadankan gejala pesakit ini dengan gejala ubat-ubatan Homeopathy. Apabila ada “persamaan” ini maka berlakulah penyembuhan.
Ubat-ubatan Homeopathy disediakan di dalam makmal yang sempurna berasaskan kajian yang mendalam dan teratur, dan seterusnya didokumenkan dengan terperinci untuk kegunaan pengama-pengamal Homeopathy. Doktor Homeopathy bukan saja perlu mendalami ilmu falsafah perubatan, sains kemanusiaan dan kaedah rawatan tetapi juga cekap di dalam mendalami cirri-ciri ubat-ubatan Homeopathy. Pendek kata Homeopathy merupakan rawatan yang unik dan ia tegak berdiri di atas kekuatannya sendiri tanpa perlu dikaitkan dengan kaedah rawatan lain.

Homeopathy tidak saintifik ?”
konsep perubatan Homeopathy masih wujud sejak 200 tahun lalu dan semakin meningkat penggunaaannya. kegagalan sistem perubatan allopathy (perubatan kedoktoran “moden”) hari ini , menyebabkan orang ramai beralih kepada rawatan alternatif seperti akupuntur, singseh, ayurveda, tradisional dan juga Homeopathy.
Pengamal Homeopathy, sebagaimana juga doktor perubatan allopathy, perlu mendalami ilmu sains termasuk anatomi, fisiologi, biokimia, dan lain-lain yang berkaitan, dan ditambah dengan falsafah perubatan “Organon”, dan juga ribuan ubat-ubatan di dalam farmasi Homeopathy. Dokumen lengkap mengenai rawatan pesakit, penyembohan, penyediaan ubat dan sebagainya sejak dahulu hingga kini tersedia untuk diteliti dan dikaji. Bukankah itu  saintifik?

“Homeopati tidak berkesan dan penyakit lambat sembuh”
Berkesanan atau mujarabnya ubat Homeopathy sememangnya diiktiraf ramai. Rawatan Homeopathy tidak setakat menahan kesakitan semata (langkah paliatif) tetapi bertindak menyembuhkan penyakit. Banyak penyakit-penyakit yang biasanya dikatakan “tiada penawar” oleh doktor tetapi mempunyai alternatif pada Homeopathy .

Lambat atau cepat kesembuhan sesuatu penyakit itu bukanlah kerana kelemahan sistem rawatan Homeopathy tetapi kelemahan doktor Homeopathy itu sendiri. Doktor tidak dapat  gejala penyakit secara terperinci dan menyeluruh seperti kekerapan sakit, waktu serangan, gejala sampingan dan sebagainya juga  mengakibatkan doktor Homeopathy gagal memberikan ubat-ubatan yang tepat .

Sikap pesakit yang menganggap bahawa kaedah rawatan Homeopathy adalah sama dengan perubatan biasa adalah salah ! menyebabkan implikasi yang kurang baik dari segi kadar kesembuhan di kalangan pesakit.

“Kaedah Homeopathy menggunakan alatan modern”

Pelbagai “pembaharuan” yang diperkenalkan kepada kaedah rawatan Homeopathy sejak diperkenalkan 200 tahun lalu. Kebanyakan “pembaharuan” ini melibatkan aspek teknik mendiagnosis penyakit dengan alat-alatan moden dari German dalam kaedah penyediaan ubat-ubatan. Namun begitu aspek falsafah dan konsep rawatan Homeopathy tetap utuh dan sama sejak dulu dan akan berterusan sehingga ke akhir zaman kerana ia berkait rapat dengan fitrah manusia.

kecaman yang dilemparkan kepada Homeopathy  telah  wujud sejak zaman Hahnemann lagi dan masih  berterusan. Walaupun kemajuan Homeopathy yang pesat dengan kecemerlangannya di dalam menanggani pelbagai masaalah kesihatan dunia moden, kritiknya tidak juga kunjung padam. kecemerlangan khidmat rawatan ini telah terjawab dengan membuktikan dari segi praktiknya akan kehebatannya .

Apakah Itu Homeopathy?
sejak Homeopathy diperkenalkan kepada manusia. Pelbagai idea, teori dan kejayaan telah terpahat di dalam sejarah merubah kesengsaraan dan penderitaan pesakit. Penawar-penawar Homeopathy telah membuktikan kehebatan mereka di dalam menyembuh dan menghalang penyakit serta mempertingkatkan tahap kesihatan. Kejayaan demi kejayaan yang dicapai ini bukanlah melalui satu jalan yang mudah. Liku-liku pancaroba yang amat mencabar terpaksa diharungi dan akan terus didepani dari masa ke semasa. Tetapi satu yang pasti ialah Homeopathy akan terus tegak di persada kehidupan sebagai satu rawatan perubatan alternatif yang mujarab dan efektif. Keyakinan ini berasaskan kepada beberapa aspek penting kaedah rawatannya yang tidak didapati pada mana-mana rawatan perubatan lain dewasa ini.baca sejarah Pengasas Homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann yang  mendapat ijazah perubatannya pada tahun 1779  dianggap sebagai seorang ahli sains yang serba berkebolehan.Hahnemann meninggal dunia di Paris pada tahun 1843 dengan meninggalkan mutiara yang amat berharga, satu falsafah dan kaedah rawatan yang begitu banyak bermanfaat kepada kesihatan manusia sejagat sepanjang zaman

.

Kaedah Rawatan Homeopati

Berdasarkan kepada keterangan di atas, jelas menunjukkan bahawa prinsip rawatan Homeopathy
ialah memadankan simptom (gejala) penawar dengan simptom pesakit (simptom pesakit dan BUKAN simptom penyakit!). Prinsip ini di panggil “Prinsip Seraksi” (Principle of Similars atau Similia Similibus Curentur).
Seorang Pengamal Homeopathy akan mendapatkan gambaran terperinci pesakit melalui perbualan dan penganalisaan simptom. Apa yang dimaksudkan dengan “gambaran terperinci” ini ialah butir-butir mengenai diri pesakit, sejarah penyakit di dalam keluarga, penyakit atau kemalangan masa lalu, minat dan hobi, bentuk dan jenis pemakanan, ubat-ubatan lain yang diambil dan sebagainya. Butir-butir ini tidak terhad kepada apa yang diucapkan oleh pesakit sahaja tetapi juga apa yang diamati oleh Pengamal Homeopathy seperti bentuk susuk badan, keadaan kulit dan anggota badan lain, cara dan nada percakapan, kecendurangan minda, tabiat, dan sebagainya. Semua ini membentuk “gambaran terperinci” pesakit.

Dan seterusnya  mencari “gambaran terperinci” penawar Homeopathy (daripada Materia Medica) yang menepati atau hampir menepati “gambaran terperinci” pesakit berkenaan. Tugas ini sangatlah rumit dan memerlukan kemahiran yang tinggi dan banyak kesabaran terutamanya kerana sedikit sangat kerjasama daripada para pesakit. Ini berkait rapat dengan salahfaham mereka mengenai Homeopathy atau menganggap sistem perubatan ini sama seperti rawatan di klinik atau hospital (dikenali sebagai sistem rawatan Allopathy) iaitu dengan memberi nama penyakit sudah memadai untuk mendapatkan preskripsi ubat.
Jika kita lihat betul-betul, kita akan dapati bahawa rawatan Homeopathy memerlukan gambaran keseluruhan pesakit di saat membuat diagnosa, dan ini dipanggil pendekatan secara holistik. Bukan sahaja aspek fizikal pesakit yang diberi perhatian tetapi juga keadaan mental dan spiritualnya diambil kira supaya penawar kelak akan lebih berkesan dan berkekalan.

Keistimewaan Homeopati

Sejak sekian lama Homeopathy telah terbukti hebat dan berkesan di dalam memperbaiki tahap kesihatan bukan saja manusia tetapi juga binatang dan tumbuh-tumbuhan. Secara ringkas, antara kelebihannya ialah:
1. Efektif – mampu merawat dengan mujarab hampir kesemua jenis penyakit.
2. Natural – tidak menggunakan sebarang bahan sintetik, tetapi sebaliknya menggunakan bahan-bahan asli daripada tumbuhan, galian dan bahagian binatang.
3. Selamat – penawarnya tidak toksid dan tanpa kesan sampingan.
4. Individu – penawar diberikan berdasarkan gambaran pesakit secara individu dan tidak disamaratakan antara semua pesakit walaupun penyakitnya kelihatan serupa.
5. Satu Penawar – hanya satu penawar sahaja diberikan pada setiap ketika.
6. Tidak Melarat – penawar Homeopathy  membantu sistem pertahanan badan untuk melawan penyakit dan BUKAN mengambilalih tugasnya.
7. Dos Minima – dos penawar hanyalah setakat diperlukan dan selebihnya adalah tindakan semulajadi sistem pertahanan badan.
8 Holistik – seluruh gambaran pesakit diambil kira waktu memberi penawar.
9. Saintifik – walaupun banyak salah faham tentang Homeopathy, ia tetap diterima berasaskan kajian yang saintifik.
10. Harga Berpatutan – harganya berpatutan dan mampu dilanggani oleh semua.
