Post Kidney Transplant & Natural Remedies

Has anyone had any success finding a health practitioner who has information about the safety of using vitamins/minerals/herbs/other natural supplements after a kidney transplant? I cannot find anyone who will touch this topic...not even the real anti-traditional medicine folks. I think it's based on fear of jeopardizing the kidney, which is totally understandable, but it is hard to imagine that there is no information that would ensure an acceptable safety level. We know that a lowered immune system brings all kinds of risks as well as the other drugs which the docs feel are necessary...blood pressure meds, antibiotics, etc. Any one with experience or reliable resources on this one?
