it was expensive being on Turkey tail and Curcumin that I just bought the curcumin maybe I made the wrong decsion and should have stayed with the turkey tail. thanks for the info.

Where do you find this Osha bear root.

nanc, the curcumin should be dirt cheap, it's just tumuric spice, we get it at Natural grocers, but I'm sure you can get it in bulk at Whole Foods, or even online. As far as the Turkey Tail's(yes they are pricy), look up Paul Stamets online, you will learn a bunch. Osha well, we go south of Pueblo, in the mountains, it's also huge in the four corners area south west of Durango and we find the plant and dig it up, but you can also find it online. We dig it up and clean it and then dry it, then I chop it up and put like 2 table spoons in a small mason jar and fill half way with rum or vodka, also do the same but instead of rum or vodka we do honey, with the honey it's great when you have a sore throat. Nanc, did going to a lower altitude help you much? We are trying to sell several rental homes and our ranch here so we can move to a lower altitude in Arkansas, so far the selling part has been difficult, but it's all we have to make a new start, hell I'm almost 59 and the wife is 54, so we need the cash to start over.

Take Care,

Gus

Fill me in on Turkey Tail? My Dad will be 85 in March, getting tested for cancer ( lung) to see if it is spreading. Just checked and Amazon has 500mg Turkey Tail mushroom pills, we talking about the same thing?

Thanks,    Dave

Yes that is it. The lady at my health food store told me about them but they were pretty pricey there but I am going to try them next month, I am retired and live on a fixed income. They charge $40 for a month supply were they cheaper on Amazon?

She said I should be taking them to help with my immunity. We we see.

PLEASE LOOK UP PAUL STAMETS! It works real good on tumors and masses! It works like nothing you would think! I do not sell it nor involved in any way, other than my wife did a bunch of research on it, and it worked for her father in law! His doctors where amazed, they had no other explantion for his numbers going down by the hundreds in a mater of weeks!

It is funny but I had someone tell me that polycythemia vera was not a cancer and I told them yes it was and that they needed to do their research.  We were told it was a rare form of blood cancer that mostly is in men and very treatable.  Thankfully my husband's hasn't advanced.  Like I mentioned above he was diagnosed with laryngeal cancer in 2010 and just underwent a total laryngectomy, neck dissection and throat reconstruction due to the cancer.  In all this the polycythemia vera hasn't changed.  Like I said he has been on Hydrea since diagnosed 8 years ago.  At no time were we told to watch his diet.   We were lucky because the doctor who diagnosed the polycythemia vera knew all about it.  I know right before surgery his platlets were a little high but not high enough to stop surgery.  

Cancer, regardless of the form, is a horrible disease and it is a shame that after all these years, there is no known cure or actually the causes for the different cancers.

I wish your father and family the best.

Cannabis oil and a good those of organic vegetable juicing can work wonders for all forms of cancer. Reply for more info

Few weeks ago I got to know that I am PV positive. I am femail, 36. I lost my pregnancy 2 years ago. My hematologist says it because of PV. I am slim, nice, love to do sports, to eat healthy, no smokin, no alcohol.. I am from Latvia, Riga.

I had high platelets for few yars but my family doctor just said to drink more liquid.

Last year, in May, I started hives.. hard.. and still have a lot. And very tired. I checked on allergy. I am allergic to pork, wheat, rye, buckwheat, egg white and bananas. ( Not eating thsese for 2 weeks but still have hard hives). Immunologist sent me to the hematologist and so we atre there... PV.
Immunologist says that my allergic reaction might be connected with PV.

Next week I go to see onkologist. After that, hematologist will start interferon theraphy. Ah, and I am taking 100mg aspirin.

Interesting to hear you have hard itchy hives. I get them sometimes. I have been diagnosed for three years and started on hydroxy but went to see top specialist last year who said I didn't need it. He ordered phlebotomy every two weeks for a few months now I haven't needed one in six months. I feel very well and I am in my mid 70's. I live a normal active lifestyle try to drink a lot of water and I don't eat a great deal of beef. Wish you the best. Money
