We do not have health insurance either and even when we did I was studying and using herbals. If you have a cancer then as serious as that is you need a certain kind of diet so your body can fight the best it can. I think it is a macrobiotic diet. Taxol also comes from a plant. However, I would suggest that you link up with an herbal group or find a complementary medicine doctor. Perhaps you could work something out. Go to the library and read their herbal books. Online you can find many things..Hope these give you a good start. You can contact me anytime!! Change your eating methods and keep positive. www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/herbalmedicine.html www.holisticonline.com/Herbal-Med/hol_herb.htm www.healthy.net/clinic/therapy/herbal

I am so sorry to hear about your cancer. There is hope though. Go to http://www.Jonbarron.com and download cancer the big lie He covers alot of information in this audio that will be so helpful to you. Also you might want to change your diet to all organic vegetarian diet to alkalize your body. I hope this helps.

Hi! I worked in this area (natural medicine) for 3 years... I'm no doctor or expert, but I'm always interested in the subject... As far as I know there's still no cure for cancer, but what I think helps the most (not only cancer, but a million things), from what I've heard/read, is ALOE VERA... Depending on what type of cancer and other factors to consider, you probably can add other things to work with it... The one thing I advise to do is to get informed about the pros and cons of everything, just because it's natural, it doesn't mean it can't harm you!!! And ask for professional advice if you mix things because, just like the other remedies, some can interact... Hope your situation is not too serious... Good luck!
