Radiation treatment and supplements
We were told by the radiation oncologist's office to not take any antioxidant supplements (such as Vitamin E succinate, CoQ10, curcumin or magnesium) because the radiation therapy uses radiation to cause oxidative damage to cells, and the antioxidant supplements would work against that. However, I'm reading "Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients by Russell Blaylock, MD (internationally recognized, board-certified neurosurgeon), and he highly recommends supplements because they support healthy cells and not cancer cells, and his patients have had good outcomes as a result. There's a compelling argument FOR supplements. We really want to take some supplements but, of course, don't want to go against our doctor's advice. Clinical studies I've reviewed online are mixed. I'd like to hear your experience and/or advice. Thanks!
