Ginger Root

I would suggest anyone who has or had ovarian cancer read the attached link. I had stage 3b ovarian cancer 5 years ago, I was 40yrs old. I did a lot of my own research and I honestly believe that ginger root works. I get them from Holland & Barrett 550mgs and I take 2 a day. I also took 250mgs of Iron a vitamin c tablet during my chemotherapy. The hospital initially said I couldn't take anything, so i had a meeting with my oncologist who said that this was fine. I took the iron because once again I read that the worst thing you can be during your chemotherapy is anaemic, this is when people miss sessions. I sailed through my chemotherapy and never missed a single session. This again, I believe was because I was taking iron. If you don't help yourself, who will. Good luck to everyone on here, people can survive this!! Please read attached link. xxx
