Hi, dear, I really don't know what you are taking, but I was told by my own radiation oncologist and by the team at UCLA's Breast Cancer Clinic not to take ANY supplements during chemo or rads. With chemo and rads you are trying to kill cancer cells. Both of these treatments are free radicals, something we normally don't like. If you take any vitamin supplements, they go after the free radicals (chemo & rads) and might interfere with there effectiveness. I don't know if what you are taking is a free radical fighter or not. Isn't there a product called Procrit just for chemo people with low blood counts. Check all this info out with your own docs and oncs. Hugs, Shirlann

Hi, dear, most definitely, yes. If you can find Hep-Forte by Marlyn, this is a wonderful B complex I have taken for 40 years. You can feel the energy after an hour or two. I got it at Longs by asking the pharmacist to order it. It is worth the trouble, you can maybe get it on line. Hope this helps. I take a ton of vitamins and I know they help. A lot of docs, who years ago were against ANY vitamins are now telling their patients to take them. Interesting. Hugs, Shirlann

I found through my searching I wanted something that was totally natural and found Morinda Tahitian Noni Juice was the answer for me I have been taking it for over 2 years now. If you just type in Noni fruit you will find allot of information about his fruit. I chose Morinda Tahitian Noni Juice because of their processing and testing they have done on their product. This fruit has been studied for over 40 years now. the Morinda site is www.tahitiannoni.com/934923.
Within the first 2 weeks of taking this product I had incredible results, got my energy back and was pain free for the first time since my diagnosis. Even though I have had problems I continue to take this product because when I go off it I get all the old pains back and don't feel as well. I searched along time before I found such a product as this that fit with my lifestyle of eating mostly fruits and vegetables.
Good luck and I am glad you are trying to find things to help yourself.
