Strong , Healthy Nails during Chemotherapy.


How Does Chemotherapy Damage Nails?

Chemotherapy is designed to kill and slow rapidly growing cancer cells. However, it cannot always distinguish between cancerous cells and normal cells. Some cells, such as those in and around your fingernails and toenails, are more susceptible to chemotherapy damage.

Consequently, a common side-effect of chemotherapy is nail damage, infection and loss, causing pain and distress.

Understanding and addressing these issues promptly is crucial to maintaining nail health during chemotherapy.

All types of chemotherapy can damage finger and toe nails. The longer the course of treatment, the more likely chemotherapy will inflict nail damage. Taxane and anthracycline based chemotherapies are more likely to cause damage. These chemotherapies are frequently used to treat breast, ovarian, lung and prostate cancers.

The Clinical Trial Demonstrated That Polybalm® Profoundly Reduces Nail Damage

Professor Rob Thomas led a group of expert oncologists, scientists, nurses, herbalists and complementary therapists to create Polybalm®. He is an eminent consultant oncologist practising at Bedford and Addenbrooke’s Cambridge University Hospitals.

Professor Thomas and the group of experts regularly see chemotherapy’s distressing side effects on patients’ toe and finger nails. The group were frustrated that nothing was clinically proven to be effective, that they could confidently recommend to patients.

The group also knew some patients and medical professionals inadvertently select products that may irritate and dry finger and toe nails, aggravating the side effects of chemotherapy on nails. They knew Polybalm® was highly effective, but this was not enough. They wanted professionals to have absolute confidence to recommend it to patients, so they set out to demonstrate Polybalm®‘s clinical efficacy.

Polybalm® was subjected to rigorous clinical evaluation which demonstrated its effectiveness in profoundly reducing chemotherapy nail damage.

The good news is that you do not need a prescription to buy Polybalm®.
