Not really: You describe a patient with myelodysplastic syndrome who is transfusion dependent. You'll read about a host of "pop" remedies but this is for the most part disinformation -- these folks play on your feeling, "it doesn't cost that much, what it if works?" his hematologist needs to know what you're using. An evidence-based holist might serve as a useful consultant.
