If you are interested in taking natural or alternative medicines in addition to your medical therapy, make sure you do some homework on what you're planning to take: 1) is it SAFE to take? would it interact with anything you're already taking or change the drug levels or metabolism? What are safe doses? 2) is it EFFECTIVE or has it been researched adequately for the condition you want to treat, and at what doses?
Please be sure to discuss these supplements with your doctor before starting them.
I also have several other recommendations to help your research on supplements: The NCCAM (National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine) website: http://www.nccam.nih.gov
