AML Therapy: Chemo / Transplant ...Herbs

Once Jaymun's AML-M5 proved refractory to standard treatment
...then using strictly ORAL herbal treatments (through NG tube)

#1. Marrow Remission (achieved over a period of about two months)
#2. CNS Remission (achieved slowly over several months DOCUMENTED BY spinal taps)

So that is COMPLETE REMISSION from refractory AML-M5 with CNS involvement.
...using only oral herbal supplements. Documented as thoroughly as I could (see links to left).

Including, sadly the limitations we all face and how hindsight shows mistakes.
Follow the links, especially the cautious advice comments on the bottom of this page.
