Survivor since 2007
I am not a doctor, and certainly not an oncologist who has spent years and years, learning all about cancer.
I would never dream of trying to figure out my own way of treatment just because I read something on the internet about the "natural" way of treatment. I had 5 years of hormone blocking treatment and took Letrozole. I had horrendous hot flashes but altered my life to make the best of it. The outcome..... I am in year 9 post treatment. I took the poison and all the rest because there is no proven way of alternate treatment. This is the best we have.
People get wrapped up in the sales job of --snake oil-- on the internet. The stories are fantastical but can they really be proven?
I am particularly sensitive to this because my best friend tried to go her own way. She died because she refused conventional treatment.
It is your body, and you can do what you choose. I didn't second guess my oncologist or any of the other specialists I went to. Balancing estrogen.... for an estrogen positive cancer? I am with Marianne.... no estrogen. Good luck, Sharon
