HEAL Chemo Gut Pain with This Wonder Vitamin
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Fighting cancer takes a special kind of bravery.
It involves seeking out every possible treatment and never giving up hope.
And if you’re one of those folks, I salute you.
I’ve seen it all when it comes to cancer treatment, and the mainstream’s so-called options are hardly that. I know from watching my patients the wear and tear it can have on your body… especially when it comes to side effects.
If you are taking chemo, chances are you’re suffering digestive issues ranging from nausea to stomach cramps… the last things you need!
But now there’s a solution.
Researchers have discovered that you can HEAL your chemo gut pain with this wonder vitamin.
And unlike chemo and radiation, it WON’T break the bank.
It all starts with vitamin D.
Surprisingly enough, vitamin D can help blunt the bad side effects of chemotherapy.
And let’s be honest, you should be taking vitamin D anyway.
Chemotherapy has many well-known side effects, including: hair loss, nausea, and extreme brain fog. But it also a nasty side effect most people haven’t heard of called gastrointestinal mucositis.
Mainstream docs worry about gastrointestinal mucositis because it can really set a cancer patient back, increasing nausea, vomiting and making nutrient absorption from food much more difficult.
Gastrointestinal mucositis is a side effect of chemotherapy because it targets fast-growing cells in your body.
For example, your hair is a fast-growing cell (that is why so many people lose their hair during chemotherapy). But the inside lining of your digestive tract (called the mucosa) is one of the fastest-growing cells in your body.
When chemotherapy wipes out the mucosa, it causes painful inflammation of the digestive tract – then people get sick and stop eating.
Guess what can come to the rescue?
A new study, published in the journal Supportive and Palliative Care, found that vitamin D can STOP the digestive inflammation caused by chemotherapy.
Vitamin D works by suppressing inflammation and enhancing immune cells called T cells (which boost immunity).
This is monumental news because vitamin D has also been shown to boost or strengthen other anti-cancer drugs as well (making them more effective).
Everyone should be taking vitamin D, especially during the winter months.
Keeping your gut healthy is essential during chemotherapy, so besides taking vitamin D make sure you’re also taking a good probiotic, digestive enzymes, and you can soothe your gut with an herb called slippery elm.
P.S. If you’d like to support your gut even further, PLUS harness the power of cancer-fighting antioxidants, look no further than this miracle fruit. Click here to find out how you can get perfect gut health in one step.
