Supporting chemo – Al’s advice
Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on April 30, 2008
I started immune system builders about 6 weeks before I began chemo. I had my blood and hair analyzed by a certified nauturopath.
The following is what the naturopath put me on.
Melatonin 20mg once in evening
Multi Vitamin without iron or copper 6 a day
Cod Liver oil 1 tlbs a day
Green Tea Extract 1600 mg a day
Coreolus-PSP Mushroom extract 1600 mg a day
Calcium 600 mg a day
Magnesium 300 mg a day
2-4 cups green tea a day
I have had no mouth sores, loss of weight, no loss of appetite except on chemo days and about 2 days after. No severe nausea.
I also changed my diet to total organic. I have had red meat thee times in the last six months so most of my protein comes from vegetables, fish, egg whites, whey protein, organic chicken.
I hope this helps, but remember this is for my immune system and everyone is unique.
