Just wondering what people are doing AFTER chemo and radiation to shore up their immune systems.
Is anyone taking Pecta-Sol C (citrus pectin) to try to minimize chances of metastasis? I was impressed by the literature although I believe most studies of its effectiveness have been performed on prostate and breast cancer patients--good results that may, or may not, have implications for uterine/ovarian cancers.
Secondly, is anyone taking low-dose nexaltrone? (Hope I'm spelling this one correctly.) My integrative doctor asked me to do some research on it after which we'd talk about it.
Preliminary forays via Google suggest it can be very effective for MS and other autoimmune diseases as well as many cancers, slowing or preventing recurrence: with minimal side effects.
Would like to know what you all think when you do your own Google searchers--or whether you know anyone who has tried it.
My doctor tends to be very conservative, by the way--prescribing only supplements backed up by lots of clinical study. So I am at least intrigued.
Am especially intrigued because despite fabulous health my entire life--high energy, few colds or flus, even--I did have two "episodes" that suggested possible MS to a few doctors although both episodes were transient (over in a month or two) and were never definitively diagnosed.
