Important Tips on How to Choose the Best Dietary Supplements in Mesothelioma Treatment

If you are thinking about using dietary supplements such as vitamins, herbs, or any product made from plants (botanicals) as part of your mesothelioma cancer treatment, you will want to know more before you decide what you want to do. These following guidelines will help you learn more about dietary supplements so you can make a more informed decision about using them safely:

* Investigate before you buy or use. There are many resources in libraries and on the Internet. But much of this information comes from the makers of the products, and can be biased or wrong. Look for materials from reliable third parties, such as researchers or government agencies. (See the "Additional Resources" section for some places to start.)

* Check with your doctor or other health care provider before you try a supplement. While your doctor might not know about all the products available, he or she should hopefully prevent you from making a dangerous mistake.

* If you are shopping for a botanical (herb or other plant supplement), make sure to find a product that uses only the effective part of the plant. Avoid botanicals that have been made using the entire plant, unless the entire plant is recommended.

* Does the label provide a way to contact the company if you have questions or concerns about their product? Reputable manufacturers will give contact information on the label or packaging of their products.

* Avoid products that claim to be "miracle cures," "breakthroughs," or "new discoveries," to have benefits but no side effects, or to be based on a "secret ingredient" or method. Such claims are almost always fraudulent, and the product may contain harmful substances or contaminants.

* Try to avoid mixtures of many different supplements. The more ingredients, the greater the chances of harmful effects. Mixtures also make it harder to know which substance is causing any side effects.

* Start only one product at a time. Notice any side effects you have while taking the product. If you have a rash, sleeplessness, restlessness, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, or severe headache, stop talking the supplement. Report any reaction to your doctor, and serious ones to the FDA.

* Do not take any self-prescribed remedy instead of the medicine prescribed by your doctor without talking about it with your doctor first.

* Do not depend on any non-prescription product to cure mesothelioma cancer or any other serious disease. No matter what they claim, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

* Do not go beyond the dosage limits on the label. Overdoses can be deadly. Do not take a dietary supplement for any longer than experts recommend.

* Avoid products that claim to treat a wide variety of unrelated illnesses. If a supplement claims that it can diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent many diseases, the product is most likely an illegal drug.
