I agree with all the information you provided about the care in taking complementary medicines, all very valid information.
In respect to my post regarding IBS /IBD - of course I am very aware there is a difference, however the studies on kiwifruit have been shown to assist both, so the reccomendation is still quite valid.
here is an extract:
“Cell-based assays have been used to determinewhether green and gold kiwifruit extracts could modulate pathways associated with IBD.69 It was reported that extracts from both types of kiwifruits strongly inhibited the production of the proinflammatorycytokine tumor necrosis factor > (TNF->) from a macrophage cell line stimulated with purifiedlipopolysaccharide. Moreover, these extracts were able to suppress TNF-> production stimulated byspecific ligands of the intracellular receptor NOD2, encoded by a gene that is one of the most commonand highest-risk genetic variants in Crohn’s disease”
I was providing suggestions the few CM treatments which currently have evidence backing their reccomendations, as the person asking the question seems to have a medical team providing her with suitable evidence based practice and I didnt want to cover information he/she has already received.
