A 21-year-old member asked:
Can irritable bowel syndrome be treated with herbal supplements?

Yes, in part: Probiotics are often helpful. These are good bacteria, and i usually recommend culturelle brand, which is one capsule daily. If your ibs is diarrhea-predominant, you can try enteric coated peppermint oil capsules, 0.2 ml 3x daily. Turmeric may also help, by decreasing inflammation in the GI tract; take 300-400 mg 3x daily of a standardized extract managing stress and diet are equally important.

Keep a log: One way would be to keep a record of dates and times of the events. This may also help with identifying any patterns, especially if certain foods are being eaten or certain stressors encountered frequently when the bouts are especially bad. By keeping the record you have an accurate log of events and do not have to try to remember which can sometimes be difficult if there are many.

A 44-year-old female asked:
Stage 3 breast cancer her2 positive how many herceptin (trastuzumab) cycle she must undergo?

Up to 1 year's worth: Herceptin (trastuzumab) can be given together with initial chemotherapy for the first 4-6 months then subsequently by itself for a total of 1 year. If chemotherapy was given first without Herceptin (trastuzumab) then Herceptin (trastuzumab) can be given for a full year by itself. The usual cycle runs every 3 weeks (17-18 cycles in one full year).
