I am taking a lot of different supplements to try to get rid of my low grade brain tumor. I can't seem to find any answers about whether or not the supplements work ok together. Does anyone know where I can find this information?

Hi Shariv,

There's not a lot that's going to interfere with each other supplement wise, as long as you're talking about basic vitamins and minerals.  When you get into herbs, there sometimes are incompatabilities, but not a lot.   A lot of vitamin C and some of the anti-oxidants can make artemisinen less effective, but that's pretty much a whole regimen in itself.

The biggest thing about taking a lot of supplements is to 1) take them with food, as many of them can be really hard on the stomach, 2) make sure you are drinking plenty of fresh pure water to both provide transport and absorption of the supplements into the cells and to make sure to also provide adequate detoxification , and 3) space the supplements out, so that you aren't dumping a whole goo gob of stuff in the stomach at once (mixing acidic and alkaline could be a problem if the one neutralizes the other. e.g. don't take baking soda and an apple cider vinegar supplement together)

If you will send me a private reply with a list of what you are taking, I'll look at it and let you know if I see any major conflicts.

Sincerely,

Tre

To All,

I am 1 1/2 yrs out from surgery and still taking chemo to date. Here are a few thigns to check on if interested:

Graviola Tea

Paw paw smoothie

Acai Smoothie

Garlic

I currently live in Brazil and some of the info from the "net" on these to say the least is intresting. I have talked to my OC in Houston on these and she had no problem me taking any of the above including my normal treatment (chemo).. I think this way it does not hurt to try. Hope you find interesting. God bless you all.

I have been supporting cancer patients with Integrative Medicine for 14 years now and I think that Integrative or alternative (I dislike that term) Therapies have evolved quite a bit fron 15 years ago when everybody thought the gov't was against Integrative medicine. Now we have quite a bit of research on what works and what does not work out there. We also know the mechanism and pathways of these natural therapies. I have been using them for a while and I can tell you that there is very little evidence or justification for the protocel50 therapy and I would not recommend it to my patients. When you look at the research on melatonin, I3C, DIM, AHCC and Avemar you see compelling and overwhelming evidence justifying using them. There is also a good deal of evidence about Chinese herbal formulas and cancer or the treatment of cancer side effects. I run a service that updates doctors and clinics on Integrative Cancer support therapies and if anyone wants to subscribe then go to my site and get my e-mail and send me a message. I would be glad to keep you updated. www.dr-er.com

Hi, if you don't mind I would like to reply on the previous question you answered.  I am also trying to check if the additional vitamins, alternative med's that are being given to a family member for a brain tumour could possibly be counteracting each other or maybe causing side effects with the treatment he is receiving.   Here is the list of things he is taking, if you would possibly be kind enough to check for me.  Or if you could suggest a site I might find this kind of information.  Thanks so much.  

Here goes:   Green vibrance (vibrance heath vers.9), Glutamine (Solal), Cats Claw (phyto force), Pectasol powder, medicinal mushroom, Milk thistle, vitamin D3, Ubiquinol Co-Q10, Adco- Cimetidine (400mg), Omega 3, Mg Zn,  multivitamin (Biogen), Vit B12 and folic acid.

His prescription meds are Cozaar 50mg/day and Epilim 600mg/day.
