We must rebuild and boost cellular immunIty, especially in cancer patients. When a cancer develops, it shifts the immune environment around the tumor towards a state of immune suppression
As an integrative physician, I must not allow this to happen. It has been shown that many adaptogens can shift the focus or immune system to cancer killing mode. One of these herbs is Withania (ashwagandha). I try to focus on adaptogens being more than stress reducing herbs Donnie Yance in his book, “ Adaptogens in Medical Herbalism’ discusses this in detail
There are other natural supplements and herbs that can do this. Some of these are beta glucan, maitake mushrooms, lactoferrin, olive leaf extract, astragalus, inositoil and panax gunseng.
