Ayurvedic treatment after Chemo

I think Ayurvedic treatment should be a must once you achieve remission.(after all the cycles of chemotherapy) 
Siddhartha Mukherjee's award winning book  "The Emperor of all Maladies"  also shed some light on importance of Ayurvedic treament for cancer.

But the problem is whom to trust.. I spoke/met few center,
one of them is "Cancer Healer" in New Friends colony, New Delhi. 
Personally i feel its a fake center ..Rs5000 for 3 or 7 day medicines-No BILL, Center is not registered either. don't know how these kind of centers are running. 
So avoid spending too much on these kind of centers

Apart from them we took treatment from a center in Indore - treatment based on COW URINE
(Jain's Cow Urine Therapy Health Clinic) and baba ramdev's etc too. 

I only place where i felt some confidence is in dehradun. We spoke to them they charge Rs80 for a week medicine, and only treat patients who are in remission. A must for AML M7 cancer patients.

A good article found on

"How does blood sugar tie in to cancer?
You eat something and it turns to blood glucose (sugar). Insulin carries the glucose from your blood into your tissue where it fuels your body. If you become insulin resistant, which can happen with diabetes, if you are overweight, or eat a lot of refined sugar and refined carbs, the glucose stays in the blood. Avoid refined carbs and refined sugar and you up your chance of beating breast and colon cancers, in particular, according to Keith Block, MD, who treats cancer patients and wrote a book called Life Over Cancer.
Among dozens of studies Dr. Block cites to plug for a low-sugar, low-refined carb diet are one where breast cancers survivors in remission with the lowest insulin levels were half as likely to have recurrence and one third as likely to develop metastases as women with higher levels (higher levels are prompted by high blood glucose). Cancer cells in general consume more glucose than healthy cells, and studies suggest controlling blood sugar and consequently controlling glucose can affect outcomes. [Journal of Bioenergetics & & Biomembranes 1997; 29 (4)].
Block and oncologists who plug the power of diet make these recommendations:
 Chose a whole food diet.
Eat a lot of cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and other green leafy vegetables.
Replace refined carbs like white potatoes with sweet potatoes and trade white bread for whole grain bread.
Other good alternative carbs are brown rice, buckwheat, wild rice, whole wheat pasta, and barley.
Avoid high-fructose corn syrup; it’s a natural sweetener in foods like cereal bars, spaghetti sauces, yogurts, and could be in about anything that would have sugar.
Avoid fat-free and low-fat foods; the fat is often replaced with sugar.
Adding herbs to the mix
If you’re interested in herbs, the American Association of Integrative Medicine recommends these products, all found in studies to lower blood glucose.
