Cancer: Breast board


Hi! I am curious if anyone is taking any additional vitamins or supplements to help with dysplasia. My doc said there is nothing proven but I don't think it can hurt to boost the immune system. I have been taking
multivitamin with antioxidants
calcium
folic acid
vitamin e
beta carotene
vitamin c
Just curious to see if anyone else is trying these things. : )

Ultra Mega beauty/vitality pack (tons of stuff in one pack)
B12
B6
Bcomplex
Antioxidant w/ natural E
Calcium
Fish Oil
Biotin
Folic Acid
Iron
L Lysine
Coenzyme Q 10

& i have a banana a day to help with potassium from BCP

LLysine is supp to be GREAT for dysplasia
I have taken a multi vitamin, 400 mcg extra folic acid, vitamin c. Also ground flaxseed. And exercise. I have had 2 normal paps since my dysplasia. I'm not sure if it helped but it sure didn't hurt!
