I am diagnosed with gastric tumor and completed one course of chemotherapy.

I am looking to have alternative treatments during the intervals between the courses.

I am thinking of EGCG, Curcumin, Broccoli extract etc....

Do you recommend any other alternative or complementary therapies?

Any help highly appreciated.

Hi

Sorry to hear of your gastric tumour. Do you know what type it was, how it was staged and the type of chemo you got?

As the focus of this forum is complimentary rather than alternative, if alternatives are your choice then another forum, or one of the thousands of sites devoted to Alt meds, would be more fruitful.

If you wish support with your cancer related issues you are most welcome to stay. It would help if we got that info :)

Cheers

LINK DELETED a support board sponsored by the Cancer Treatment Centers of America. They have excellent complementary and alternative treatment threads. Hopefully you can find something helpful there.
Best regards

Hi again Mike

What type of gastric cancer do you have? Also what type of chemo did you have?

the general consensus around here is that Maitake mushrooms in particular extracts are beneficial. Misteltoe(Iscador) is also of interest. The Germans are pretty good at balancing Complimentary and Science based med together that should give you a search parameter ;)

Good luck

Curcumin has also shown promise FYI.
