      Hiccups: My husband has them also and our nurse said to take a teaspoon of peanutbutter and just sorta eat it as if you were tasting/licking a sucker/candy.  I was surprised to see that it worked.  Hope this helps! Caroline51

        I am interested in how to approach my Husband's Oncologist about homeopathic supplements. I talked with an Oncology Nurse and she really didn't seem to be very supportive.  I wonder why? Can anyone address this?   My husband is receiving the 5FU treatment with Oxaliplatin and Irinotecan and my goal is to keep him comfortable. Nausea and weight loss are our obstacles. Thank you, Caroline51
