Most tumors contain a small percentage, approximately 2%, of MDR (multiple drug-resistant) cells. Chemo is not effective against these cells. After the first round of chemo, if the chemo is effective, all of the cells that are not MDR, are destroyed. Since this accounts for the vast majority of the tumor mass, the tumor appears to be effectively destroyed. However, the MDR cells remain and start to multiply. If the cancer recurs due to MDR cells, the new tumor is likely to be entirely MDR. The next time chemo is used, none of the cells will be destroyed because they are all MDR. This is why giving chemo after a cancer recurs often fails to have any effect.
There are many patients and natural health physicians that say that only alternative treatments are able to destroy MDR cells. Something worth looking into.
As I always say: Its your health, so make sure you make informed decisions before treating with conventional or alternative medicine.
