Hello, CS team!

I have an alternative treatment question. My naturopath said the #1 thing she would recommend is modified citrus pectin. I actually already had it because I'd read how great it is to use during surgery (and no, no surgeon recommended this!!! LOL).

So -- was wondering if anyone uses it? I've been for the past month. EcoNugenics brand created by Dr. Eliaz. My only concern and perhaps I should try to call them is if it contains the extract that is in grapefruit which Tamoxifen reacts to.

Thanks for any feedback!

Calling them is a great idea. Or your naturopath should be able to look it up and see how it (if it does) react to Tamoxifen. I think it's the actual grapefruit food (the fruit and juice) that we have to worry about but I'd want a second opinion from a trained invidual.
