I use the Herbal Papya brand capsules. I do believe they help a little. I have seen some improvement with my blood counts, not huge and not remission. But, enough of a bump and consistent enough to say that I truly believe it helps a little.
But, today when I went on Amazon to order the capsules I normally take I discovered they more than doubled in price. (August 2016)
For those who are getting good results, what brand do you use? If you are taking a liquid, how do you take it? Thank you.
Diagnosed jan 2015 at age 50 with 13,000 platelets.
Thank you received: 67
I buy the tea leaves through amazon and have a glass of iced tea each day. No idea if it helps, but i have been off promacta for two months now and my platelets go up just a little bit each time. The tea i make is pretty strong so i add a squeeze of lemon. I do not think it can hurt me so I only see an upside.
