Update to Physician Heal Thyself
I found out that chicken soup can help me. While it does not increase white cells, it does slow down the neutrophils1 (the type of white blood cells2 I'm deficient in) keeping them in the body longer to do their work.
So, while I wait for the Sho-saiko-to herbs3 to work to increase neutrophil production4 in my bone marrow, I can use chicken soup to help the ones I do have in my body to their work more efficiently.
So, I bought 30 cans of chicken soup to eat one a day. I'm also sharing a tablespoon of the broth from each can with each of the cats; because, they have symptoms of having the Fusarium in their sinuses and they refuse to eat Fish Oil (which is the best thing to boost cat's immune systems). My cats are weirdos.
I'm also going to purchase some Thyme Essential Oil5 to use when I run out of Sho-saiko-to herbs. I'm hoping that, by the time I run out of the herbs, they will have done a good enough job to get me out of neutropenia and, then, I can kill the Fusarium with the help of the improved immune system.
Recovery from neutropenia is essential in treating Fusarium.6
Now, I have an improved plan!
