Ref.: (LML) Steroid Dependency and the use of Methotrexate
From: Terence J Ryan, Oxford, UK
Thank you for distributing my comments (LML, November 13, 2017).
I should have included a recently published ill effect of an herbal.
- Gonui M, Keseroglu H and Hacinecipoglu F (2016). A Case of methotrexate intoxication in a patient with psoriasis who drank beetroot juice during methotrexate treatment. Clinical and Experimental Dermatology 41:893-895
One should always ask about what health foods are being taken.
In a world where the Traditional Health Practitioner is first on call I am in favour of their education rather than any attempt to abolish their practice. A recent (2016) publication (Supplement On Integrated Medicine by SR Narahari and myself ) of the Indian Current Science discusses this at length and includes an article on Leprosy by David Chandler.
