I have just finished chemotherapy/radiotherapy and i'm very interested in learning how to boost my immune system(and health in general) and using herbs to help with the treatment of Tamoxifen which i will have to take for 5yrs so anything i learn will not have to clash with what i'm currently taking.
Can anyone advise me on where to start?
It is good to hear that you have dealt well with the chemo and are now able to look forward in a positive way to give your body a boost.
Whilst there are a number of herbs that can be quite safely used, there also some that shouldn't. I would therefore suggest that it would be much better to consult with a qualified medical herbalist who would also be able to give dietary advice,which is just as relevent as herbal medicines.
I'm sorry if I am not being as helpful as you had wished. The art of herbal prescribing is knowing when it is safe to self prescribe and when expert help is needed.
If you do consult a medical herbalist, please make sure they are properly qualified, belong to a recognised organisation and have insurance .
Best wishes for the future. It would be good to hear how you get on,so please do post again and let us know how you are.
