I realized that when I was writing about my mum I forgot to mention two supplements that were recommended to her. One she used and one she didn’t.
The one she did not use is called Ovosan. We did find positive reviews for it but at the end my mum decided not to buy it. The main reason was the price. Also you need to talk to the consultant about the dosage. She was hesitant about that. And last but not least, she found that the product was made from chicken embryos which she did not like. I would never push her into something she is not completely comfortable so we abandoned the idea. Having said that, I think if you don’t mind the price and the other things it might be worth checking out.
Later on, another friend pointed us towards different supplement – Penoxal. It is not cheap either but it is made from mushrooms and the dosage is more straightforward. She did not use it right from the start but during her chemotherapy as her immunity suffered lot more than expected. Once she started taking it she seemed to have more resistance.
Update: 2019 – Most doctors don’t want to hear about supplements. If you can, choose an open minded doctor. Check also my other post: https://wordpress.com/post/youdonthavetolikethis.com/138
