Comment from: Karen, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: July 17

My cancer was treated with chemotherapy and then with radiation. The chemotherapy has brought on advanced rheumatoid arthritis (RA). I have had both of my hips replaced due to the chemotherapy eating the cartilage and now I will need new knees. I never had RA or any arthritis before and now I'm 62, a bionic woman. I inject myself once a week with an RA medicine as well as take 22 pills a day.

Eighty % fresh fruits and vegetables give you energy and will greatly improve the immune system which you need to fight cancer. Eliminate processed sugars from diet. Exercise and laughter release endorphins which make you feel better.
