    I took 42 days of Temador during my 42 days of radiation. Temador is by mouth and from home....so easy. Once I took the anti-nausia meds with it daily, I have no effects. Now I take Temador, 5 days out of 28 a month....probably for the rest of my life. Not a problem,easy....and I am going to have a long life!! So there GBM...

    Other Care

    I am a firm believer in helping my body heal itself. I meditate daily, I am doing yoga, I walk 3 miles a day. I eat so many fruits and veggies for their high anti-oxident ingredients. I take lots of suppliments that are shown to be anti-oxident and anti-cancer. I have done alot of research on this. I also am a firm believer in naps and having a loving community surround you with love and prayers. And of course the positive attitude is key. I wish all us a return to health.
