I just read this message in another group.

Around this Northwest area L-Glutamine is being used more and more, by the
Oncologists, for treating and preventing mouth sores. My son had great
results with it. He could not stand the numbing and cleaning medicines
prescribed normally with chemo. His mouth sores were reduced by at least 75%
with this. The dosage he received was 1 tsp. three times a day, (at about
5,000 mg per tsp.) He mixed it with a little water or juice, swished
thoroughly, then swallowed. This takes it all the way through the digestive
system, which also can get mucositis, (sores.)
You can get this at some pharmacies, although it is quite expensive there.
After our first bottle ran out, I looked around for alternatives. At Vitamin
World I found it with a picture of a muscle-bound guy on the front. The
salesperson assured me, after calling their home office, that this was
pharmaceutical-grade quality, so I bought it to try. It seems to have worked
just as well as the more expensive stuff from the pharmacy.

Also, xxxxxx, who posts on this site, had some very good information, (I
don't know where she got it from,) that I will recopy here from her post
dated a few days ago:
"Glutamine supports the mucus lining of the mouth, throat, stomach, and
intestines. Studies at the University of Minnesota and the Mayo Clinic
showed that glutamine powder, swished in the mouth and then swallowed,
significatly decreased the incidence of mouth sores.
"This amino acid supports the lining of the intestinal tract and assures its
proper functioning. It is also used as a brain fuel. In addition, it has
been shown to increase the effectiveness of methotrexate. 'It is extremely
important for cancer patients undergoing conventional treatment to receive
glutamine supplements. We recommend the use of glutamine poweder in a
smoothie to protect the nervous system and the GI tract--one tesapoon
several times a day.'
"Before taking anything-----"ALWAYS ask the treating physician FIRST. He may
also be able to prescribe this for the patient.
