A friend of mine has a lipoma that she would like to reduce. Her doctor suggested pokeroot. Is there another herb that could be used in conjunction with this herb.

But to answer your question specificy regarding the poke, poke root infused in castor oil is a good drawing and removal type remedy and is recommended in various conditions were "matter and debris" needs to be broken down and removed. Plus, both castor oil and poke root help to stimulate the immune system in the area so that the body can work to bring itself back to a place of homeostasis.
