Newbie needing guidance

Just Dx with Aplastic and Megaloblastic and don't want conventional treatment looking for others who go the functional medicine route.

I don't recall anyone on this forum who used functional medicine as a sole treatment plan for aplastic anemia/megaloblastic anemia. We used aspects of it post treatment to help heal.

Most have a conventional hematologist and work with alternative practitioner at the same time.

Good luck. This is a serious disease.

Contact www.AAMDS.org and talk to the patient educator about your plan.
