I was chatting to a bloke at a family funeral earlier this year and it emerged that he, too, has CLL.
As the conversation progressed, he mentioned that he takes a daily dose of powdered apricot kernels and drinks white tea.
His lymphocyte count was 19 when he was diagnosed 11 years ago and has been 30 for the past five. He goes to Haematology once a year.
Apricot kernels contain cyanide, so the dose has to be strictly monitored, and the sale of them has been banned in many countries (he gets his from Mexico).
Has anyone else come across this method of "treatment" and, more to the point, is anyone using apricot kernels to fight CLL?
