Breast Milk and Chemo Side Effects

My husband's granmother is taking chemo and is feeling pretty bad.  

Does anyone have any personal experience with using bm to help with chemo side effects?

I've only found one article on the subject which I emailed to my MIL.

I suggested putting it in smoothies, milkshakes, or cereal.  Then I remembered that bm isn't supposed to be shaken up, so would it still be beneficial after being blended up?

Thanks for any advice I can pass on.

I may be making this up, but I thought you weren't supposed to shake it up to prevent air bubbles and gassiness?

I had a friend that gave her mom thati believe was fighting cancer, breastmilk. I think she said a great deal of her recovery was due to breastmilk nd that she put it in her coffee or tea (assuming it was iced).

Shaking it up breaks apart the amino acid chains. Off the top of my head I car remember the impact of that for babies or anyone else who might use breastmilk therapeutically.
