I recently was diagnosed with breast cancer...invasive ductal carcinoma. Absolutely no history of this in my family. Could there be a link between all the drugs for ms I've taken and that?? I've seen some posts on cop axons and BCBS. I've tried copaxone, tecfedera and now tysabri.
Any clue on new vitamins that may help this? I am set for surgery at the end of the month....any help is appreciated. I am not sure how much fight I have left these days as the ms about wiped that out it feels. Thank you. Just one of those days.........
I'm so sorry to read about your cancer diagnosis. In addition to any therapies your oncologist may prescribe, consider things like cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, kale and watercress. Watercress contains a compound called phenylethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC) that's been studied in cancer. It gives watercress its spicy flavor. Eat the stems as well as the leaves. I find the stems to be spicier implying that they may contain more PEITC. You can find the papers on PubMed. Also look into green tea and turmeric. With respect to turmeric, regular curcumin is poorly absorbed and nearly ineffectual unless you take around 4-6 g/day. However, that can be hard on the gallbladder. Consider absorption enhanced forms such as Meriva Phytosome, BCM-95 and Longvida. Regular white button mushrooms can also help fight cancer. In one study
, just one 10 g mushroom per day lowered breast cancer risk, add some green tea and the effect was greater.
