Cancer patients who opt for conventional chemotherapy and/or radiation rather than alternative therapies as their preferred treatment regimen often develop extreme fatigue and lack of energy. But this can be remedied using an ancient Chinese medicine protocol known as Ren Shen Yang Rong Tang, or RSYRT, which a new study published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found helps conventional cancer patients maintain some semblance of quality of life.
Available for FREE online viewing through June 20, 2015, the research looked at the effects of RSYRT on fatigue in cancer patients, comparing their health statuses both before and after the 12-herb treatment. Cancer patients were instructed to take RSYRT twice daily for six weeks, after which time researchers from the Peking University School of Oncology in China and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas assessed their outcomes.
Surprisingly, in as little as two weeks into the treatment, RSYRT patients with moderate to severe fatigue resulting from chemotherapy or radiation reported significant improvements. Aligning with the philosophy of traditional Chinese medicine, which maintains that fatigue is caused by a deficiency in Qi, a physical life force related to the energy flow of the body, RSYRT appears to boost Qi levels naturally, effectively restoring energy and alertness to those damaged by chemotherapy and radiation.
"RSYRT therapy was safe and was associated with fatigue improvement in nonanemic cancer survivors, consistent with historical TCM [Traditional Chinese Medicine] clinical practice experience," reported the authors, noting that every cancer patient evaluated experienced improvements as a result of taking RSYRT.
"Using a well-validated patient-reported symptom outcome measure and qualitative documentation, this study obtained a preliminary impression of positive fatigue reduction from this formula," they added, affirming what TCM practitioners throughout China have known for centuries.
RSYRT effective against inflammation, autoimmune disease, skin tumors and more
The restorative RSYRT formula, which contains ginseng, astragalus, cinnamon and various other Chinese herbs, has been shown in dozens of clinical studies to treat more than just cancer. Postpartum illness, tuberculosis, depression, chronic fatigue, infertility, candida, Alzheimer's, inflammation, autoimmune disease and skin tumors have all been shown to respond positively to this safe, all-natural treatment.
A 2001 study published in the Journal of Korean Medical Science found that this unique herbal blend helps suppress skin tumors, as demonstrated in sick mice given the treatment. A more recent study published in the journal Complementary Therapies in Medicine found that RSYRT is effective in treating chronic kidney disease, helping to protect against microinflammation.
Some 35 entries in PubMed, in fact, reveal that RSYRT may be beneficial in treating things like nervous system damage, infections, injury-induced fibrosis, brain damage and so much more.

"Animal studies and human studies have shown that most herbs in this decoction, and especially the anti-inflammatory compounds derived naturally from these herbal products, strengthen the immune system," adds the most recent RSYRT cancer study about the benefits of this herbal formula.
"Using a relatively fixed TCM formula with a combination of herbs rather than a single herb is based on the TCM theory of the entire human system as an object in which symptoms are driven by maladjustments in the body. More significant synergistic effects on symptom control have been observed with all the ingredients combined."
