I would recommend she try to find an integrative medicine doctor. They will generally know about which supplements work best for different kinds of cancer. They will work with your oncologist, or at the very least, keep up with what is going on with your medical history. I have a bone marrow cancer and recently saw a integrative doctor who has experience with my particular cancer. He recommended a mushroom supplement (though it doesn't have turkey tail), along with some other supplements and dietary changes. It's still too early to tell, but my first blood check showed a little improvement. Generally, there's not a magic pill, but a combination of things (supplements, diet, alternative and conventional approaches) that can bring improvement.

I've used kefir starter. I heat the milk, let it cook down some, stir in the starter, and pour into a heated (but not too hot) thermos bottle. It usually takes about 24 hours for me to make a batch. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NLVLKM4/?coliid=I37URAREJNGJJW&colid=RR2X8W0BYW3P&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

Yes, many folks brew Kefir. Either milk Kefir or water Kefir. They are two different beasties. Lots on Google or YouTube.

I just purchase life way kefir. Have enough of issues to add one more thing to my life. Simplicity and effectiveness of care is important for me
