HER 2? Avoid Avoid

10

 

I have something to post as a warning/suggestion for anyone who has been diagnosed with HER 2.

The medical oncologist told me to avoid:

  • soy
  • flax
  • alcohol
  • any plant based estrogen such as Promensil, which I took for a year or so to try to relieve hot flashes – it was a clover based over the counter pill. She specifically mentioned black cohosh as well.

So ladies, please ask your doctor about the safety of any of these things for you personally, and be safe!
