Dear Mel
One should NOT use traditional medications for cancer as there are no studies done to confirm
1. that it works
2. that it is safe
and it also is not safe to use with current medical treatment of cancer like chemotherapy, and can cause serious side effects like liver failure or cancelling out the cancer treatment effects.
There are tried and tested safe medications available for treatment of chemotherapy side effects and pain, please discuss with the oncologist
