Crazy because I used to drink green tea like crazy and take tons of vitamins trying to be healthy and perhaps was feeding this cancer. I do take supplements prescribed by a naturopath but none are antioxidants. It is a balancing act for sure between what will help and what can hurt. So far my CEA is falling consistently so my supplements and chemo are hopefully working together just fine.
I think you hit the nail right on the head. It IS a balancing act and very complex unfortunately. naturpaths/herbalists/alternative doctors come in many forms. If you find a good one what KNOWS how to work with chemo....this is the key. Sounds like you found this. Most do not understand chemo and will try to give you a protocol that completely interacts (we had his experience infortunately with our first one) so it is important to do research on EVERYTHING your taking and run it by your oncologist too. Our oncologist approves everything my husband is taking.
