    Jenny,

    BCCT does not charge for our services, as we want this information to be available to all our readers. We would accept a donation in gratitude, but access to information is not currently contingent on any payment.

    Dear Stacy,

    Thank-you for inquiring about Turkey Tail Mushroom.   Here is a link to the BCCT summary on Turkey Tail Mushroom:  https://bcct.ngo/search-therapies/search-therapy-summaries/turkey-tail-mushroom.  BCCT does not recommend specific brands or dosages of natural products.  However, if you go to the Commentary section of the turkeytail summary, you will see information from Dr. Lise Alschuler, naturopathic oncologist, on what to look for in terms of quality and quantity of Turkeytail Mushroom.  She explains that "The key is to use a hot water extract of the fruiting bodies or a full-spectrum extract (includes mycelium) that clearly identifies on its label the quantity of mushroom extract.  She goes on to list some blends of mushroom extracts that she often recommends.  I hope this is helpful.

    Dear Debbie,
    We are glad you joined BCCT. Yes, information about nutrition and cancer can be confusing. The Cancer Fighting Kitchen Course as well as BCCT's Eating Well page will help you translate the nutrition science into real food, delicious food on your plate. My motto is, "You can't eat dogma"---so, see what makes sense to you and is do-able for you. Take it "one byte at a time"! Laura Pole, RN, MSN, Chef, BCCT Senior Researcher.

    I am interested in learning more about the use of Turkey Tail Mushrooms (PSK extract) for lung cancer. Are there certain companies that you would recommend?

    Incredibly grateful for this website as I navigate treatment after surgery with input from a naturopath/oncologist. The divide between two worlds is wide, and I appreciate your heroic efforts to illuminate what is possible. Thank you.

    Mark,
    We're so glad that you are finding BCCT helpful and hopeful.
    Your doctor's discouragement is likely well-meaning, and possibly based on lack of information or misinformation about specific complementary therapies as well as evidence-based integrative cancer care. Hopefully, the true wisdom for doctors will come with experience and paying attention to people like you telling about what has been helpful and not helpful as you explore beyond cure, in search deep healing.

    Thank you so much for this powerful and powerfully helpful work. My doctors seem to consider discouragement to be the highest form of wisdom on their part. I am thankful that BCCT offers something so life giving and hopeful.

    Mary, we have not completed our Lymphoma summary, but we do have several resources on that page, including a link to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. They have a page on central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma, which you can also get to directly here: https://www.lls.org/lymphoma/non-hodgkin-lymphoma/treatment/treatment-for-aggressive-nhl-subtypes/central-nervous-system-cns-lymphoma

    You can search our database of complementary therapies for evidence-based summaries of therapies investigated with lymphoma, although not confined to CNS lymphoma: https://bcct.ngo/search-therapies/search-therapy-summaries/?searchcancer=31&searchcancer2=0&searchsymptom=0&searchuse=0&searchprotocol=0&searchkeywords=&searchsubmit=Display+Results

    Best wishes.
