Hello! I wonder if anyone has experience using MGN-3 for Breast Cancer, the cancer-fighting treatment made from fungal mycelium, etc. I am interested to learn of any experiences (success or failures) using this treatment. Thank you. Akiko

how has your treatment been with mgn3? My father was recently diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer and has less than 2 months to live. At 76 they don't feel he would tolerate chemo and would be miserable his last days so we're trying mgn3. Please Please reply. Kathy s.

I have been using it for the last year or more. About 3 months ago I discontinued its use because I was not sure of its effectiveness and it is expensive. My tumor markers went down and stabilized at an extremely low rate. Since discontinuing it my tumor markers have now started to go up again. I have metastatic breat cancer in the liver. It is generally considered inoperable. I have not tried chemo for this particular cancer.

Anybody tried MGN-3?

Has anyone had positive results from MGN-3? My father is diagnosed and is pretty far along, and at 76 they think he won't tolerate chemo well. We feel he doesn't have very long and are wondering if anyone else has tried MGN-3. Kathy S.

I am trying it, my neighbor has colon cancer and I am borderline, but my family doctor told me to take it and told me to double up on the dosage. I only know that my family doctor told me that it helps the immune system and I have read articles in my health magazine that it is supposed to make tumors smaller. Cyndi and I will hope and pray for you.

Kathi, I have had success using MGN-3 as part of a comprehensive nutritional treatment plan. Is it the MGN-3, the macrobiotic diet, the Hoxsey or Essiac or other herbal tratment that results in improvement? Don't know. Do know that cleaning out toxins, eating a whole food diet, and supporting the immune system with medicianl mushrooms and herbs helps. Stress is a major toxin that needs addressed also. So mental and spiritual parameters should also be included. Use nutritional treatments in conjunction with conventional treatment methods which assist in debulking the tumor mass(es). But simply debulking the tumor without addressing the underlying causes generally will not induce the body to heal itself. That is what nutrition, emotion and spirit are good for.

MGN-3: Help or Hype?

Recent posted messages to this site has made it apparent that many individuals are seeking guidance about the efficacy of MGN-3. Here's my take on it: MGN-3 is a product that has been touted to enhance immunity. While I haven't seen any independent studies specific to the product, I have reviewed test tube and animal studies that prove that the cancer fighting compounds found in the product (glucans extracted from mushrooms, algae, and some grains) have demonstrated the ability to boost immune system response by increasing the activity of IL-2 and tumor necrosis factor. Sounds promising! In my clinical practice, I have observed individuals that have received positive benefits from taking this product. Although I haven't read of reported toxicity or negative side effects associated with the product, I have observed some people get an unexplained rash. For that reason, I typically do not recommend mushroom extracts for individuals who might have intolerances or allergies to molds or yeasts. And, if someone has been diagnosed with candiasis (yeast infection), I have them avoid these kinds of products as well. Cost, as well, is an issue. There are less expensive ways to boost immunity. One of the key things to remember when supplementing your diet with immune stimulators is the rule of synergism. As with anything, a variable approach to fighting cancer naturally just makes good sense. One supplement may aid immunity, but are you supporting healthy cell rebuilding? protecting healthy cells? decreasing your risk of toxicity, etc.? I recommend seeking guidance to cover all of your nutritional bases and to ensure that you are doing everying necessary to achieve optimal results with your nutrition program.
