Thanks for that Jules, very interesting. Never heard of that Japanese medicine or herb before so had a look for it on MSKCC and came up with this link.

Perhaps Percy will have heard more of that. Thanks again for the link.

Hi,

I did mention this Chinese herbal combination under "my personal case study" on 2/22/2012. please read the link below. It is not new, most the Chinese , Japanese and Far East older generation all should know about .
It is a complimentary medicine  formula and not a therapeutic agent in the sense of the Western medicine practice.
"the "shi quan da bu tan" 十全大補湯-in Chinese herbal practice or called (juzen-daiho-to)in Japan Kampo herbal list ."

Thanks guys. Very informative Percy. I read your case study - this disease really is a roller coaster! My mum is going to take the shi quan da bu tan, to see if it helps with chemo side effects.

Re: Article on combining Chinese medicine and chemo. Any thoughts?

Fingers are crossed for your mum Jules that it helps! Good luck with it. And yes, all of this is definitely a rollercoaster!
