I am just curious if anyone else has been using black seed oil for breast cancer (nigella sativa) and the results they have experienced. I have been taking it for a few months and I am (so far anyways) stable. I am wondering if I stumbled across a hidden gem or am I the last to know about this stuff?!

what brand of oil and amount do you take each day? do you use any seeds as well? I am getting some oil and some ground seed to use and I believe it was recommended 1 teaspoon of oil 2x a day and tablespoon of ground seed (might use it on foods for seasoning).

I took it for a couple months-stopped because I could not find any info on whether it interfered with the tamoxifen I was taking at the time. I did not notice any difference, but did not take if that long. I will say I do not miss the taste of it

I am trying to revive this thread. I recently read that black seed oil was good for breast and specifically aiding in chemo efficacy and helping to prevent/slow tamoxifen resistance. Anyone else in this? I bought some yesterday but have not started it yet. I planned to buy the seed supplement but came upon a good quality oil and bought that instead. Is there any risks with using the oil versus the seeds? I did see one article about seeds increasing NK (natural killer)cells but not the oil.
