I have a cousin who has carcinoid cancer. I googled herb information, they said that Geranium robertianum was good for that. Help!
Gernaium robertianum, also known as Herb Robert, is an astringent herb that is used for hemorrhaging and tissue repair. I have not heard of its use for cancer specifically but I could see it as helpful and in particular with bowel lesions due to the direct contact it would have when taken as a tea or tincture. A standard dose would be 1 tsp of herb per 1 cup of water. Drink 1/ to 1/4 cup of tea up to three times per day. It would not be recommended for prolonged use due to the astringency and possibility of reducing nutrient absorption in the long term.
