I’ve started chemo... I know, it’s awful, but after 4 yrs of nutrition the breast cancer came back strong. Can I take the lypo spheric vit c with chemo? I started Adriamycin and Cytoxan with the Neulasta shot and will have Taxol for 12 weeks later on down the road.
I took a lypo spheric gel pack 2 days after the first chemo, don’t know what I would have done without it! Please let me know.
Thank you so very much. Lisa
I’m sorry to hear that your breast cancer came back.
I need to make a video about my thoughts on cancer and guides.
I cannot say one way or another about the Lypo C. You have to ask your oncologist and your naturopathic doctor – I highly recommend a team effort here.
The potential issue with chemo is that it is an oxidative treatment and Lypospheric Vitamin C is an antioxidant.
Now – I am a huge proponent of natural cancer treatments but I also support standard treatments when people believe in them and when the natural approach is not working.
I think it is ok to take Lypo C – it is simply a matter of timing. Best not to take it within a couple days before or after chemo – but likely can take it other times. Again – talk this over with your doctor. I wish I could provide more information than that.
On another note:
- With Chemo, one needs to take L-Glutamine, Folinic acid
- Also need Pectasol
- Check estrogen levels
- Check heavy metals (after chemo) and get them out
HomocysteX by Seeking Health is useful to take as it provides a high quality form of Folate and other B vitamins that reduce homocysteine levels.
HomocysteX provides nutrients mentioned in this research.
Given that chemo depletes folate, it is very important to restore the levels.
Glutamine protects your intestines against the chemo so you can absorb your nutrients, not get mouth ulcers or digestive pains.
Consider taking 10 grams (2 scoops) three times a day in a large glass of filtered water between meals.
Research conducted about reducing side effects of chemotherapy with l-Glutamine here.
Pectasol Modified Citrus Pectin helps prevent metastases, read more here.
I highly recommend doing a phone consult with Dr David Wood at the Trinity Health Clinic. He is well versed in cancer and I refer people to him often. He has helped a friend of mine recently with breast cancer. She is doing well.
I hope this informaiton helps you.
