I am not an expert, but I have seen test results from many people using herbal methods to cure diseases, viruses, etc. and in most cases their intermediary tests always showed an increase due to the die off showing increased junk in the blood. I would also like to recommend that you get your mother on a phase 1 diet if not a 100% organic green juice fast recommended by Dr. Gabriel Cousens http://www.treeoflife.nu
I've spent time at the tree of life with cancer patients and results were always delivered during my time there. Dr. Cousensí bases most of his treatments on the pleomorphic/mycosis theory which basically means cut off the food supply to the bad guys. This means natural Sugar or high fructose corn syrup, cut it all off. I would have myself or any family member or friend on a green juice fast over any supplement if he/she was battling cancer. I do believe Miracle-Mineral-Supplement will help, but youíve got to hit cancer with every arrow in your sleeve.
