      Ann – – I’m sorry you’re feeling so frustrated and helpless. Your love for your husband shines through all that you are researching and wondering if it will help him.

      first, may I ask what do you mean by “failing.”?? I think you’ve said he was diagnosed a year ago…what is changing? Respiratory? Mental? Physical? Before you self-prescribe a regimen of herbal supplements…what symptoms are you trying to address? And, have you received any suggestions from your doctor/medical team?

      I’m not sure if Curcumin is the holy grail treatment that you are hoping it is – – but I recommend you read a little more about it before blindly following another patient’s dose. Here are 2 excellent resources for you.

      It’s always so good that you reach out to this forum for support and information – – let us help you sort out exactly what your husband needs and how we can help you feel less frustrated.

    Hello Ann, I am sorry that your husband is failing and you are feeling helpless. I am sure  you are doing everything you can to support him.  I also bought the curcurmin that Dr. Bedlack mentions in his studies.  I was able to find it on Amazon.
