My mother was diagnosed on May 24 with a GB multi gr4. This was the day the world changed for us. She was the glue of the family and the most positive person you could meet. She had sugery which removed 15% of the tumor and went on aggressive radiation combined with Temodal. She handled the treatments amazing and things seemed to be heading in the right direction. She just finished her first round of 5 day on Chemo and she seems to be experiencing some serious cognative changes which we think is Delusia. A friend recommended we try a supplement called Ambrotose which is made by a company called mannatech. Glyconutients. I am not fond at all of the MLM side of it but the science behind the product seems to make sense so I thought it would be worth a shot. She seems to be re-gaining some clarity and her energy level is up. I remain skeptical of the many testimonials that I see on the manufacture materials but in my mind if helps to improve her quality of life even a little bit, it may be worth while. Has anyone had experience with this product particularly with brain tumors?

My sister was diagnosed with a benign tumor 7 years ago, after surgery and radiation it resurfaced this past July as a grade 4 GB. She has had 4 surgeries since July and has had Gliadel wafers and just started Temador all while taking Ambrotose. My holistic practitioner/kinesiologist/chiropractor in NYC met with her and recommended the product. My sister is 27 and her immune system has remained stellar while on the Ambrotose. It has helped her spirit, not to mention her health, while fighting fearlessly. I have learned that a combination of high hopes and healthy living can make such a huge difference in anyones life. Do lots of research and find what provides the elements that keep you and your family members living well. Religion, food, exercise, fresh air, meditation, etc. I have seen so many different things work for different people as I have been on this journey with my sister. I hope your Mother is doing well and send many well wishes.
