My dad is diagnosed with peripheral T-cell Lymphoma; cancer of the immune system. We’re interested in other natural therapy as well. Any recommendation?

Additionally, I would like to add that Ashwaganda (Withania somnifera) and the Ganoderma mushrooms (G. lucidium, G. applanatum, G. tsuga) have been researched and shown to be effective at raising low platelets as well as moderating the immune system. The above mentioned can be added to, then simmered in, nourishing soups. Such a soup could be eaten on a daily basis. Antioxidants and bioflavonoid rich herbs and foods are also important. Bioflavonoid rich foods and herbs are rosehips, hawthorn, garlic, elderberries, blueberries, and strawberries. Antioxidant rich herbs are thyme, sage, rosemary, turmeric and oregano as well as green tea. Poke root applied as a topical compress or infused in olive or castor oil has been used for helping to breakdown and remove congestion and tumors in the lymph system. These could be applied twice daily.
