Stage 4 gbm
My father has been diagnosed with stage 4 gbm. His radiation therapy will end on the 19th of this month. Chemo will continue for sometime. I want to start with some alternative treatments to increase his chances. Can someone let me know if ayurvedic treatment can run in parallel with chemo and recommend a good ayurvedic place
