Expert response

Hi Kimberly,
Yes you can prevent the nausea & vomiting associated with chemotherapy!
Ask your doctor about Zofran, Emend, Compazine, Marinol and even Ginger. There are many options available for controlling Chemotherapy Induced Nausea & Vomiting (CINV) available through a prescription or naturally.
Hope this helps,
Dr. JAG.

My friend David Schapiro’s wife used a Fucoidan extract from a japanese company and her symptoms from the chemo became mild to the point where she also was able to move around the house normally without the tiredness. He talks about it in his blog

I hope his videos interest you and help you in some way. Get better Kimberly
