This is the first community I have found where there are members who opted not to take chemo. Chemo or no chemo is a personal choice. I had a double mastectomy 6 mths ago and I have been taking Meriva curcumin, exercising and making smoothies. Also, I am trying to eat a Mediterranean diet. My tumor was 1.5cm and no mets. It is still early, however, I will keep you posted. This is a scary and challenging journal; however, tneg is not a death sentence. Patricia Prijatel wrote a book, Surviving Triple Negative Breast Cancer. She highlights women who went the traditional and non-traditional treatment routes. Her blog "Positives About Negative" is a wonderful source of information.View Thread
Hello utahbunny, Your progress is GREAT news. I am encouraged by your progress. I would love to correspond with you also. What is the best way to email each other? I do not want to post my email address on the forum. I would love to get more information about your naturopath doctor.View Thread
