Kopfhautpflege bei Brustkrebs

Scalp care for breast cancer

Ms. Küng was diagnosed at the beginning of August 2021. It was an incidental finding, an early stage aggressive cancer without metastasis.

The operation was performed at the end of August 2021. The removed tumor was sent to the USA for further treatment (Onco type DX Breast Recurrence Score). The result showed that chemotherapy is not absolutely necessary, but recommended. The decision was up to the patient. In consultation with the family doctor, the customer then decided on chemotherapy. She received her first chemo on October 18th. Three further therapies followed at intervals of 3 weeks.

She tolerated the chemotherapy relatively well. Tiredness after 3 – 4 days, weakened condition and slight bouts of fever and recurrent itching of the skin.

Two weeks after the first chemo fell the customer cut off the first hair and had the rest cut off. From that point on she wore a wig or hair towels. From mid-January 2022, daily irradiation (Mon - Fri) began for a total of 24 cycles. Already during, but especially after the radiation, the hair started to grow again. Ms. Küng communicated the cancer diagnosis to hair specialist Karin El Benna, who recommended a weekly light hood treatment with head massage, which started a week before the first chemotherapy.

At home, the customer applies Ayurveda Hair Active Tonic twice a day and massages the scalp for about 2 minutes. She washes her hair with Ayurveda Hair Active Shampoo. She also does alkaline foot baths with Corialith Mineral Basic Bath every day. Through the regular use of head massage and light hood and the use of Yelasai products, the hair grows back densely and evenly. The applications also have a positive effect on the well-being of the patient.

She is very satisfied and therefore continues to come weekly to her Oncohaircare hair growth specialist Karin El Benna for an Ayurvedic head massage and light hood application.
