Topical chemo and use of Royal Jelly
(United States )
I'm currently on topical chemo treatments, for pre skin cancer, actinic keratoses, and I was wondering if it is safe to take the Royal Jelly during this treatment. I have two months completed, and about two months more to go, on this treatment. The medication being used is called Aldara 5%.
I have read about this product, bee propolis, royal jelly, and my sister purchased me a bottle of 500 mg(3X)per capsules, so I was wondering if I can take this product safely on off days from chemo?
I have to do two treatments, two times a week, for eight hours each time, for a total of sixteen weeks. I did take one capsule the day before a treatment, and didn't have any side effects, other then felt a little more lively for a few hours. I suffer from chronic fatigue, so it felt great to have a moment of lively feelings. However, I want to be sure one can take this product safely, while on the medication I'm on. Doctors don't seem to know about holistic treatments etc.
I'd appreciate any help with this, that you could advise, or give. Thank you in advance for your help.
We have had customers use bee propolis during chemo safely. The issue that you have to consider with propolis and royal jelly is that tehy are very powerful anti-oxidants. The issue raised by many doctors is that anti-oxidants can protect the cancerous cells from the effects of the chemo. Some anti-oxidants do this. Propolis appears to be selective in the cells in 'protects', meaning it protects only your healthy cells but this is not conclusive. Definitely something to consider.
I hope that helps a bit.
