Re: maitake mushroom and gemzar / xeloda combination
It's very difficult to find a knowledgeable authority on mixing herbal/mushroom therapies with western medicine drugs. Few oncologists have this experience although a good naturopath may be able to help.
I have been taking a pharmaceutical grade mushroom extract that I import from Japan with Xeloda for almost 8 months with good success but this should not be interpreted as an endorsement for what your Mom will do.
