Herbs for Low Platelets
Answered by: Christine Dennis
Question from: Myrtle Posted on: November 23, 2007

I have breast cancer, and taking chemotherapy. I want something to increase low platelets.

Ashwaganda (Withania somnifera) and the Ganoderma mushrooms (G. lucidium, G. applanatum, G. tsuga) have been researched and shown to be effective at raising low platelets. All the above mentioned can be added to, then simmered in, nourishing soups. Such a soup could be eaten on a daily basis.
