I have been using the following Natural supplements since 2 months ,inspired by Margaret . Some i have included based on other research  . I am confident that these natural supplements are doing a great job .
1. Haridra (Circuma Longa/Turmeric) 400mg from Himalaya  – 2-3 times a day
2. ‘Flaxseed oil’ capsules 500mg from Sri Sri Ayurveda – along with Haridra
3. ‘Garlic oil’ capsules 500mg from Sri Sri ayurveda – 2 times a day ( self discovery . noticed that severe itching in my throat because of Lenalidomide subsides with Garlic)
4. ‘Ashwagandha’ capsules (Withania somnifera)  250mg from Himalaya – 2 times a day
5. ‘Guduchi’ capsules 250mg (Tinaspora cordifolia) from Himalaya – 2 times (advised by my Oncologist)
6. ‘Shigru’ capsules 250mg (Moringa pterygosperma) from Himalaya 250mg – 2 times a day
7. Amla candy (Goose Berry , rich in Vit C ) 4-5 pieces – 2 times a day .
8. Every morning i drink ginger (one inch piece)  decoction to which Lemon juice (quarter lemon) and turmeric powder (from my kitchen) is added.
9. At times i replace ginger decoction with decoction made with leaves of Simarouba Glauca (There is a post on this in my blog ) I add Turmeric powder (from the spice rack in my kitchen 🙂 ) and lemon juice.
