Yes, Cat's Claw is another legendary healing herb from the Amazon. I take
one capsule each night before bed,
as part of my immune-enhancing program.
Raintree sells a bottle of 100
capsules (500 mg each) for $13.95.
They also sell a pound of the Cat's
Claw powder for $18.00. I'd be
tempted to send your Mom the Cat's
You asked about a three month supply.I don't know how much Cat's
Claw and Pau d'Arco she should take
every day. I would guess maybe a
level teaspoonful; one-half in the
morning and the other half at night.
She could mix the powders in liquids
or in foods; whatever tastes better.
If you sent her a pound each of
Cat's Claw and Pau d'Arco, I think
that would last several months. By
then, your Mom would have a sense
of whether they were helping or not.
If so, you could send her more.
Regarding the AHCC: The instructions
on the bottle suggest that someone
who is trying to generate the maximum immune response (someone who
is seriously ill) should take 4 capsules, three times a day, for a
total of 12 capsules.
There are 50 caps in one bottle.
At that rate, a bottle will last only four and one-half days. You'd
need seven bottles for a month's
supply. Each bottle costs about $32.00, so a month's supply would
cost around $235.00. Obviously, if
your Mom took fewer capsules each
day, the bottle would last longer.
That's expensive -- until you begin
to compare it to the costs of chemo
and radiation, hospital time and
If the AHCC did cause the tumor to
shrink or disappear, her maintenance
dosage after that would be just 2
capsules per day.
Trust your intuition about what to
do, Fatema. I will keep your Mom in
my prayers. If any of these supplements help her, please let us
