As homeopaths we are often asked to help patients who are undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. This treatment can lead to significant side effects which can greatly obstruct the health and repair of the patient. These include nausea, vomiting and mouth ulcers. These conditions may be helped by homeopathy, often enabling the patient to better tolerate their treatment and to complete their course in the time planned. Mrs J came for help with such side effects. At the time her mouth was extremely dry and she had developed strongly metallic taste which had stopped her wanting to eat and she had difficulty swallowing. Three different remedies each helped with one specific problem and each were needed to treat these side effects but each helped her to recover quickly and to feel better about herself and the future.
