Ayurvedic physicians do claim the treatment for the disease but till this day there is no definite evidence of its effect. many latest drugs have come in the market called targeted and antiangiogenic drugs which give some hope.Radiotherapy is needed only when there is a gross single leision in the bone or there are compression signs of the spinal cord.
If you still feel that there is some logic in the Ayurvedic treatment there is no harm in continuing itwith chemotherapy.
