Thanks for your comment.

Im 100% for complementary therapy. I know nothing about the Block center. They may be skillfull and idealistic and effective or they may be like Cancer Treatment Centers of America which seems to be more business than pt oriented. The extreme prices charged for relatively ineffective drugs means well all be going complementary soon or growing our own herbs.

The latest "gem" for breast cancer is a drug called Piqray loaded with side effects (blood sugars over 500mg %, pneumonitis, severe skin rashes and a price of, who knows, 2000 dollars a capsule. You take two 150mg capsules of Piqray twice daily meaning 120 capsules (150mg each) a month. If your heart is relatively healthy call a pharmacy an d ask the price without insurance for 120mg capsules. You can actually live a whole year on Piqray Usually the time to progression is measured in months.

Check the price (of course) etc etc and use your gut feelings to decide if they are idealistic and patient oriented or just greedy.
