Has anyone had any experience with Essiac Tea or any other alternative herbal remedies for cancer treatment. My mother was diagnosed with non-smoker NSCLC with mets to her spine. She recently finished radiation to her spine and lung and round 1 or taxol/carboplatin. Her PET scan revealed a shrinkage of the tumor in her lung and no other detectable cancer at this time. Her oncologist is considering giving her a few months off to recover from the treatments. I'm concerned about the extended time off without treatment and was wondering if anyone has tried an alternative form of treatment between traditional chemo to ward off the existing cancer or keep it at bay. Thanks to all and stay strong.
