Where can I find info on building up my immune system before and during chemotherapy. I start next Tuesday!

Hi there, as both Pam and myself are quick to suggest, would be "Bovine Colostrum" It is a natural supplement found in most health food stores. Purchase; low heat processed, pasteurized from only New Zealand or Argentinian cows. I swear by the stuff for boosting the immune system, I took it before and during my chemo. Good luck and stay in touch.
Hugs from Tiger

Thanks Tiger. I'll go shopping for the Bovine Cholestrum tomorrow. Just hope I can find it. I live in a fairly small town - but there is always the internet, isn't there? Thanks for the hugs...I'm a little nervous about my first treatment.

I have found bovine colostrum but am not sure if it is from New Zealand or Argentinian cows. If you can, explain the specifications to me. The kind I have found and they only have one bottle left, is FDA approved and manufactured in the USA - according to the sales clerk. I will meet with the owner of the store tomorrow. Just curious about the specs.

Drink Plenty of water, get plenty of rest & swallow bovine colostrum like it was your favourite candy. Beleive me it really works. Good luck with chemo. Love Pam
