Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
I have had 5 chemo treatments. What herbs do you recommend for recurrent ovarian cancer?
A: There are several things that traditional Chinese medicine and herbal supplements can do for recurrent ovarian cancer. They can help you cope with the side effects of cancer treatments, be they radiation or chemo-based, and also help your body to heal and recover after the treatments. However, I strongly urge you to, first and foremost, consult your primary physician and obtain their approval prior to engaging in any adjunctive treatments. This is essential to ensure your safety.
You might also try out the Traditions of Tao herbal formula “Cancer Support”, which reinvigorates the immune system and “Women’s Wellness”. Of course, discuss with your physician before beginning any new health regime.
