Thanks for sharing your experience! My Mom is having a local cancer recurrence after only 7 months after surgery, found during radiation therapy and I am very scared of mets (high risk, according to docs). I am not a doctor but I strongly believe alternative treatments can help a lot/integrate other medical treatments. Where did you get these supplements, especially Cimetidine and advice about how much/ when to take them (olistic/ naturopathic docs)? Do you know whether they can be taken also during chemo/radiation therapy (are you taking it with a 'conventional therapy' underway?) Have you ever heard about/had occasion to ask someone (maybe the same people who prescribed you curcumin and cimetidine)about Artemisia Annua? Apparently it can help destroy cancer cells but it has side effects (a slight neurotoxicity) and the dose has to be carefully evaluated. Moreover, it seems not to be available on sale in all countries (I do not now if it is available in the US). Despite the risks I (and Mom)would consider the option, if nothing else works! Thanks again!.. and keep fighting, we can make it!
