Effects of Marijuana in Chemotherapy or Radiotherapy
As we all know, Chemotherapy is a cancer treatment that uses chemicals to kill the cancer cells in the human body. It is especially effective against microorganisms and cancer cells. Chemotherapy in the real sense refers to the anticancer drugs used in the treatment of cancer or a combination of drugs that have become cytotoxic standardized treatment regimen and not targeted treatment.
Cancer treatments are becoming more effective, but with the destruction of cancer cells brings in numerous additional side effects. Recently, it has widely became known that chemotherapy patients benefit from smoking marijuana. Smoking is not necessary, though. Eating marijuana is better than smoking it. This is because it does not produce a feeling of intoxication.
Medical marijuana has been proven time and again to help relieve these and other symptoms associated with chemotherapy when dealing with cancer patients. In fact, medical marijuana has proven to be probably the greatest treatments to assist victims via the dark days after cancer treatment.
Patients with cancer who are treated with chemotherapy suffer from muscle pain, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, diarrhoea, headache, nerve, loss of appetite and weight loss.
In this case, marijuana can help reduce these side effects, to relieve pain, reduce nausea and stimulate appetite.
For radiotherapy, it means exposing cells to a tumor to radiation, which inhibit multiplication of the cells and cause their destruction. These rays are produced by particle accelerators or radioactive sources, and it is called radiation tumor.
Radiation therapy is a common treatment for cancer, but not systematically. The indicator depends on the location of cancer, the status of implementation and the general condition of the patient.
Patients with cancer who are treated with radiotherapy suffer from fatigue, changes in appetite, hair loss, skin problems.
Medical marijuana is a natural alternative that has helped thousands of cancer patients to prevent nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and pain associated with radiotherapy.
