Thanks so much for your comment and the link to the article. As far as I understand she is set on doing chemo and is in the process of stopping breastfeeding. Can your herb suggestions be done alongside the chemo?
Many of the herbs will counter the effects of chemo since they are free radical scavengers and the chemo works by creating free radicals. Therefore she should use the herbs on her chemo breaks instead. Although I do know a lot of people who have used both pau d' arco or ginger to counter many of the side effects of chemotherapy while on the chemo.
Would there be any danger with taking them and undergoing an operation?
She should stop any herbs or supplements for at least a week before undergoing any surgery since some are blood thinners and can interfere with some lab tests.
