Our expert says:
I would like to suggest that your dear Mom consults a clinical dietitian (phone (012) 998-5650 (mornings)) so that he/she can work out a diet that is rich in protective nutrients. Basically such a diet entails eating plenty of raw (if possible), fresh fruit and vegetables, unprocessed cereals and grains, plenty of fish, lean meat, eggs and low-fat milk and dairy products to ensure that she ingests sufficient vitamins, minerals, trace elements and omega-3 fatty acids. Check with your prescribing dr if she is not at least allowed to go gentle exercise such as going for walks in the fresh air, as there is one school of thought that encourages gentle exercise for these patients.
I do hope that your dear Mom gets over this illness speedily.
