Can you recommend any kind of herbal remedy for treating lymphoma? Have you ever heard of Flovaessence?

Lymphoma is a malignant tumour of the lymphatic system that may be caused by immune system suppression by steroids. Herbal treatment should be in conjunction with a medical practitioner.

The following herbs can help by restoring the immune system and stimulating blood and lymphatic circulation.

Echinacea helps to regulate the immune system.

Red Clover is used as a cleanser for the lymphatic vessels.

Nettles is a circulatory stimulant and blood detoxifier.

Myrrh supports the immune system by increasing the number of white blood cells.

I don’t know "Flovaessence."

[Additional comment added by the Editor:] You may thinking about the "Floressence" formulation made by Flora Distributing. It is based on the "Essiac" formula of Rene Caisse, with some added herbs. The "Essiac" formula is a famous remedy used for the treatment of cancer. You can read more about the remedy in a book called "Essence of Essiac" which is available from Richters.
