Supplements... I need to know
My brother, 34 years old, has a recurrent AA grade III. It looks that conventional chemo treatment (Temodal for 5 mos and Temodal+Carboplatin for last 2 months) is not effective so I'm looking for additional treatments. I have been reading a lot of articles in favor of supplements and some against them but we don't have many options. The main question for me is how to find the optimal dosages or optimal combinations. Another question is where/what to buy. There are so many companies on the market so it's really hard to choose among so many labels. So I need your help.
He's on Depakine/Keppra for seizures and Vitamin D because of very big deficiency.
- We'd like to try Curcumin. 4g or 8g/daily? Can you recommend some manufacturers by best quality/price ratio with best adsorption? Meriva, Longvida, BCM 95 or C3?
- I've read that Boswellia can be a replacement for dexamethasone. Is it so?
- Dosage for Fish Oil/Omega 3, Selenium. Manufacturers?
- Quercetin? I've read that it works great with Temodal and some other article states that there is no clinical evidence that Quercetin works.
And the final question for cocktail drinkers is: did you choose supplements for your cocktail by yourself or did some doctor recommend it?
