Platinum compounds – especially cisplatin – have many side effects. One of those side effects is peripheral neuropathy. I use B6, lipoic acid, and hypericum to counteract this toxicity.

There are damaging side effects of cisplatin to the liver, brain, heart, and bone marrow. Cisplatin also damages the cranial nerves especially CN B for hearing.

There are many natural supplements and herbs that can be used to counteract these deleterious effects.

Some are Boswellia, curcumin, and a bioflavinoid called quercitin. There are studies to show that CoEnzyme Q10 allows cancer patients to live 40% longer than those who did not take this supplement. We do know that cancer patients have a lower CoEnzyme Q10 level than healthy subjects.

Until tomorrow…
