Re: Our Experiment Fasting Around Chemo

This may seem like a stupid question but does fasting help the immune system when not on chemo? And wish I had seen this before I started chemo because I would've tried it to see if it helped with the side effects. I'm done with chemo but seem to still have immune system issues. :-/

PeaceMomma - did you discuss the cold caps with your oncologist? I considered them before my chemo started but my oncologist didn't recommend it.

Colleen - are you ER-? If so, you might try milk thistle to help with the liver enzymes. If you're ER+ though, you can't take it because it elevates the estrogen in your blood (or something to that effect).
