      There are "holistic" doctors who put bio-identical pellets of testosterone under your skin. I have met people who think the treatment is energizing. Those people werent being treated for cancer but they swore by the pellets.

      Best wishes for a full recovery

      I never recommend this but I am going to make an exception. Google contraindications for testosterone and the chemotherapy drugs you are on also any other drugs you are taking

      Believe it or not, I was prescribed testosterone by a physician who had diagnosed me with bloodwork before I found out I had breast cancer. I had mine filled at a compounding shop and put a few drops on the inside of my wrist, and I thought I felt better. Although my oncologist didn't mind me using it, I didn't have chemo. I had radiation.

      I suggest you Google as cheryncp suggests, and then possibly call your chemo drug manufacturer and ask for comments.

      Try juicing fresh and organic veggies to get going in the morning. If the docs have you onsickening drugs, try a simple and mineralizing combo of 3 ribs of celery, a cucumber (with the ends or tips sliced off) and a small bunch of parsley or of peppermint (depending on which might taste better for you and which is more easily available fresh in your area).

      Squeezing out the fiber through juicing it to save your body the energy it would normally use in digesting the fiber. The juice came be assimilated just about immediately. Assuming this works for energy, learn how to grow sprouts at home (unless you can afford unsprayed sprouts from the store) and add two huge handfuls to the mix for juice. As you get used to it, try adding an apple or a piece of fruit. Then go on the making your own mixes but, while on chemo, stick to no more than 5 different items in a mix.

      Best wishes.
