Hi Red robin
I completely get why you're interested in looking into alternative/homeopathic remedies. I've taken loads of interest in these things since I was diagnosed 2 years ago (surgery/chemo/rads). I'm not a believer in homeopathy, because it's basically one or two molecules of active ingredient x added to as much was as the Atlantic. Medical studies, using statistically representative groups of people have never been able to show that homeopathy works, other than possibly as a placebo. You can take a Smartie as a placebo and it'd be a lot cheaper.
I don't know if you've heard of Australian Jessica Ainscough, the wellness warrior? I can't add links but you can read about her quest to cure her own cancer (and later on her mother's breast cancer) through alternative means. The story makes interesting reading.
I think the difficulty is working out which alternative therapies might work. Cannabis in it's many forms has quite a good reputation and I know a lot of the major cancer research studies are really looking into it, there are many clinical trials into it going on at the moment, you can find them on the web. You'll all have seen all the claims for coffee grounds, curcumin and tumeric and garlic and vitamin C, maybe some of them work, but you've probably heard the line
" What do you can an alternative health product that works?
If they're that good then I figure that the drugs companies would be looking into them, which in some cases they are I believe, but no way are all the claims true, the hard bit is working out which ones!
Anyway read the Jessica Ainscough story - it's interesting whatever you take from it. ~
From what I have read CBD oil, cannibis, marijuanna is only effective for pain. I hear some people saying they take it to help with cancer? Can someone provide links to studies performed that show CBD oil is benificial for cancer patients?
If not, then we are just flying blind here.
The only thing that i know cannibis is effective for is pain. That is what is proven.
Thanks. I'll see what I can find out. I haven't been able to prise much information about any kind of supplements from the team I have been under.
Thanks for the information you have put put up. Should it be taken long term like the hormone tablets tamoxifen etc and do you know if it is okay to take them together? At my first annual check up I asked doctor about taking aspirin daily and he said Letrozole which I am on for 10 years is very powerful and anything else would not have nearly so much effect. Thanks and all the best.
