Does your book explain what is/are adrenal support? My mother is currently on Hospice and we have the black and yellow salve. Her red blood count and white blood count are currently down. The white because of her last treatment of chemo, and the red is down (the doctor believes) because the tumor on her liver is bleeding. The liver would be the first place we would try it. Is this a bad idea? Also is it too late?

These are actually quite a number of questions. For the adrenal ones, visit http://www.kitchendoctor.com/adrenal_exhaustion.html, but I do not think this is the most critical part of your inquiry.
Red blood cells can be rather quickly rebuilt with blood tonics. I have never seen anything work faster than Tang Kwei Gin, but many think it is not as appropriate as some slower acting tonics such as the Floradix Iron+ Herbs. What is good about the TKG is that it does, in fact, support immunity also, not perhaps as directly as a product like Indigo Drops, but it has enough astragalus to make a difference.
The bleeding is worrisome. I hope the doctor can address this. I definitely recommend that everyone keep some Yunnan Paiyao on hand for emergency purposes. It belongs in every medicine cabinet, but I have no idea whether or not it would help in such circumstances.
As to whether or not to use the black salve on the liver, it depends on your mother, her prognosis, her will to liver, her ability to deal with pain, and her perseverence. If she is determined, this may be the way to go, but there may be a tricky time at the beginning when there is an inflammatory response to the salve that also increases blood circulation and perhaps aggravates bleeding. I don't know how serious or safe this would be, but I certainly urge her to work very closely with her doctor so that she has the support she needs in case the reaction is not ideal.
This said, one of the internal products would not pose such challenges, but they may not be as effective either.

Thank you so much for your quick reply to my inquiry. I need to know what is Tang Kwei Gin or more importantly how or where can I get it? Also what is Yunnan Paiyao? You said to keep it on hand for emergencies, what type? She also gets very nauseated and throws up what her stomach doesn't like. Also her cancer is in more places than just the liver. It is in the brain (these tumors have been radiated on and they shrank but still there.) There's one on her outer lung near her heart. The doctor says this one is progressing. Then there is one on the neck that you can feel and it has gotten bigger. Now that you are fully informed do you think the black salve is OK? Thank you for all your help.

The truth is this cancer has seriously invaded the body. No one would promise anything at this juncture, but anyone who cares and is compassionate would want to help as much as is possible. This said, you have to manage digestion, manage side effects, find the right protocol and still hope that your mother is willing to hang in there and that it is not too late.
I do not consider myself "fully informed" by any stretch of the imagination. I simply have a little bigger picture than a few days ago. The first question is about your mother, what she wants, believes, expects, and is willing to do. Up to now, she has had a number of interventions which, it would seem, have only been partially successful. It's difficult to separate the disease from the treatment.
This said, in general, it is the better informed patients who respond best to alternatives. One can take the black salve (or not take it) but if one ignores diet and detoxification and feelings and prayers, the black salve would be fighting a lonely battle against a big disease.
