Dear Dr. Tan,

I have to write to let you know how tocotrienol has helped my uncle with a very serious heart condition. We thought we had lost him forever, but since taking tocotrienol, he is experiencing a reversal and fantastic improvements. I am a doctor myself and had never heard about tocotrienol. Please send me more information, and I would love to meet you to discuss more.

Dear Dr. Tan,

My 80-lb determined friend with Stage 4 breast cancer that had metastasized to her lymph nodes and liver refused chemotherapy because she wanted to fight this ugly disease in a healthier way. After taking 900 mg/day of tocotrienol, she noticed great results. Her doctor was skeptical at first. It has now been 6 months and she just texted me that she is, “Cancer Free!” She eats well and is taking other supplements. This is amazing!

Dear Dr. Tan,

I have been reading about supplements that can help with healthy cholesterol levels. I have not done well on statin drugs and read that tocotrienol might help. I have been keeping close track of my numbers for the last two years, and I must let you know that my levels have greatly improved.

Dear Dr. Tan,

I am an ophthalmologist and I have been a patient participating in a pancreatic cancer trial that used annatto tocotrienol. The trial has now ended, but I am still alive! Please let me know where I can purchase tocotrienol so that I may continue taking it.

Dear Dr. Tan,

I have lupus and my hands swell so badly at times that it is too painful to hold the steering wheel in my car. Even with shots, I have not been able to experience much change. Since taking tocotrienol, I have started to see the inflammation in my hands reduced.

Dear Dr. Tan,

My dog has arthritis and I love him so much. It hurts me to see him struggle. I decided to see what would happen if I gave him tocotrienol, and I want to let you know that it is helping with his ability to walk. Thank you so much!

Dear Dr. Tan,

Can you imagine what it is like to have a child who has never cried tears? That is a common experience for children with FD, a rare genetic neurologic disease. I had heard from other families whose children had been taking tocotrienol that they had started crying real tears. I want to let you know that today while out walking with my son, he mentioned that he cried while watching a movie. That was a walkstopper!
