UPDATED Chemotherapy has long been accepted as the most common cancer treatment for many. In fact, when cancer patients ask how much time they have, the answer of the doctors are estimates including the chemotherapy effects already. Does this mean that chemotherapy is not good for cancer patients after all?

It kills all cells

Cancer patient Nica Anne Sitchon-Macaspac posted her advice on Facebook about not opting for chemo for her osteosarcoma cancer. According to her, the chemotherapy not only kills the cancer cells but also the good cells.

This is a sureway for bodies to deteriorate. She recounted how she was confined when she had cancer. She underwent chemotherapy to help her recover from cancer. However, instead of healing her, her situation got worse. To the point that she can't even stand, all her strength withered away and she just spent her days in her wheelchair.

Alternative treatment

Because she felt her strength ebbing away, she decided to stop chemotherapy to try science-based alternative treatment. As per advice from her friend, she started wearing socks with silver ions and wristband made with silver and copper ions. Her diet also changed. She just ate vegetables and stopped eating processed food.

Just a week after that, she felt her strength come back. She was able to stand and walk without her wheelchair and she was even able to take her son to school.

Her tumors also shrunk giving her high hopes that she would soon be declared cancer-free by her doctors.

Her post quickly went viral. Prayers and encouragement flooded her comments sections. All are wishing that she gets through her predicament unscathed. In the end of her post, she advised people to also consider alternative-science-based treatment for cancer. Sometimes, it pays if you don't trust your whole treatment to doctors according to her.

Sad news: It has come to our attention that Nica Anne succumbed to her disease August the same year that she posted this status. This article does not aim to give false hope and give medical advises to those who are experiencing the same.

Her husband posted on August 18, 2017 with a photo of Nica during their wedding and a caption:

"Paalam mahal ko.. eto na piakamasakit na pagsubok sa buhay ko, wala pa sa kalingkingan ni job to! Tuloy ang buhay mahal, ako na bahala sa tatlo pahinga kana, gabayan moko sa susunod na kabanata."

According to a comment from a netizen, it is common to feel better when you quit having chemotherapy sessions. This is how chemo works. The netizen also shared that chemo's effects are terrible at first but the true effects can be felt afterwards. 

Lastly, we would advise anyone who is reading this to not self-medicate. It is always better to trust the experts.
