Abstract:

Chemotherapy has serious side effects that may be detrimental to the patient, namely complaints of nausea and vomiting. To reduce the side effects of chemotherapy, many patients in our country choose herbal therapy. One such therapy is the intake of ginger. The aim of this article is to explore the effectiveness of ginger to overcome nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy in breast cancer patients. The method used is a systematic review. Results of the study suggest that ginger is only effective to reduce nausea, but does not lower the frequency of vomiting caused by chemotherapy in breast cancer patients.
