Hi Marlene: No, I'm not doing the colostrum anymore. I initially started it because I thought it was helping my skin, but after a while, it just didn't seem to do anything else. I think I took it every day for about 2 or 3 months then dropped it because it is a bit expensive. Didn't seem to affect my counts at all either. The colostrum I used was from Organic Pastures. It was raw and unpasturized. That's the same company I get my raw milk, cream, and butter. I've visited their facility and was given a tour. I feel confident that their product is good quality and they were very knowledgeable regarding care of their animals and answering any of our questions. Their cows are grass fed and not given any antibiotics or hormones. I suppose if you had to go with pasturized dairy products then I would at least make sure that it wasn't harmogenized. That's another alteration done to dairy that ruins/damages the nutrition quality or health benefit of dairy. Take care, Marla

John just started in february. He's getting closer to being transfusion free we hope but he's not there yet. How low does it get when you stop. Are your platelets holding at a good level? Your WBC?
