I have to share that we have the original plant of simaruba in the Philippines same description - Small flower with fine gray bark and becomes yellowish if we removed the skin. 8 to 12 inches long leaves without any odor and same treatment for flu, diarrhea and relief aches for a day.

I am the third herbalist using this for medical treatment and boosting immune system. By just soaking the leaves or bark or wood it produces a bitter taste, I have already treated a lot of ailments such as cataract,hypertension,boils,inflammation,ulcers,diabetes.

Dear Padma
Why do you wish to take Dead nettle for Sarcoidosis. Ginger is the most effective herb to treat this condition. it has got strong anti inflammatory properties which reduce pain, inflammation.
Garlic and Chammomile are another Herbs in the list. But I think you should consult your doctor before taking any of these Herbs.
Herbs might interfere the action of certain medicines. Sarcoidosis is the disease of the whole body. So immunity must be built up. You should take herbs to set your metabolism right. Say no to smoking and drinking. Please !!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck dear.

Dear Ali
Dead Nettle is not the appropriate herb to cure Leukemia. But, Simarouba is quite effective for it. It has anti-tumor and anti-leukemic action. Take a cup of Simarouba tea three times daily as a tonic, it ensures fast recovery from Cancer. Its decoction also reduces the side effects of Chemotherapy, if any. It is advised that you please read the disease Cancer in the disease section of this website. There you will find a detailed description of the disease and super effective Herbs to cure it.

We suspect that this cyst might be due to some allopathic drugs that he has been taking for curing Diabetes. Please tell us the name of the drugs, he takes .
Surgery might not be required. Since the cyst is benign, it might be taken care of by Herbs. Regards

As such Simarouba does not have any known effect on Prostate. Herb for your father is Stinging Nettle. Its tincture is known as Urtica Dioica. Take 5 drops of this tincture in a glass of water everyday, for a month. It contains phytochemicals that help to shrink prostate tissue. Being a natural diuretic, it helps in the elimination of inflammatory wastes through urination. AND
Mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of honey in a glass of warm water. Drink it twice daily. These 2 methods have benefited many people. Consult your doctor before giving any medicines to your father

It brings down the sugar level if your highly diabetic. I gave out the leaves to a person with stomach distress. While it took care of the issue, it also reduced her high diabetes level down to below 80. This was without being accompanied by allopathic medicines. My Father experienced the same. Would like to reinforce, that this is only for high diabetes.

If you are clear. The disease has been taken care of then why do you wish to take Simarouba. No doubt, the herb is very effective for it , but if it is not there the I think you should not. Just drink Wheat grass juice, 30 ml every day for one month. That's it. Discuss with your health care provider before taking any medicine

I'm suffering from t cell lymphoma and had chemotherapy treatment... I used the leaves and was clear of all tumors at 4th stage of cancer. Though my doctor asked me to undergo transplant to avoid relapse. I had developed a small node of tumor at neck due to lack of the leaves for the treatment. Discontinued 2 months and after that I again got back to treatment with simarouba and it had tremendous effects as the node of tumor started decreasing within 15 days. Now I underwent transplant process with my own stem cells as per doctor. Can I resume the tea of simarouba leaves after this to avoid any more relapse chances?

It might be Arvind. Try skipping the herb on alternate days and then keep a check on your heart rate. And then, you may adjust the dosage accordingly. And, I think you already have taken it for 20 days, now you should not take it any more. Drink Ginger Tea every day. For 20 days take a pinch of Baking soda in half glass of water and drink it twice a day. That's all.

Suvasini. It is seen that patients undergoing chemotherapy suffer from hair fall and digestive problems, weight loss, excessive heat in the body, irritation, dull skin and the list goes on. However, there are herbs that can help to minimise the side effects caused by Chemotherapy are given on this page --- https://herbpathy.com/Herbal-Treatment-for-Chemotherapy-Cid4988 Yes, if he takes Soursop juice every morning for a month, it may help to cure his Cancer. Simarouba laves decoction can also help him. One cup every day for 15 days. He can drink Carrot juice, 2 glasses every day, regularly for 4 months. Very effective herb to cure Cancer.

Yes, it can help. Give her cup of tea. Also, give her soursop juice daily, 100 ml for one month.
She can drink 3 glass of Carrot juice daily. This has great anti cancer property. Ginger Tea can be taken daily for a month. One cup every day.

The best herbs for him are-- Mucuna Pruriens capsules, one every day for a month. Valerian capsule, one every day.
Give him Walnuts, soaked overnight.
Bacopa Monneri ( Brahmi ) capsules, one daily.
These three herbs will help him to a great extent.
Make him do regular exercise. Your trainer should make him do Exercises for improving balance focus on activating, stabilizing and strengthening abdominal and back muscles.
Muira Puama is a famous herb used to cure Ataxia, you may try that too. Physical Therapy is very very important for your husband. I know abou all these herbs because my uncle had the same and he got great benefits by these ,including the Physical therapy. Simarouba won't.

Arvind.
Simarouba alone will not help to combat Cancer. Your father in law has to take these herbs as well--
-Cleavers- Buy the tincture from a homeopathic store. It is known by the name of Galium Aparine. Give him 5 drops added to a glass of water, daily for one month.
-Astragalus tea every day, one cup.
-Give him a glass of water, with a pinch of Baking Soda added to it, regularly for 21 days.
-Give him Kanchnar ( Bauhinia Vareigata ).system.
-Take 2.5 kg of carrots. Juice them. Give him a glass of carrot juice in the morning. Refrigerate the remaining juice. Finish the remaining juice throughout the day. Do this for a month first, if it suits him then continue for one more month.

Hi,
My friend is diagnosed with Rectal cancer with Stage III-B in nov'16 and started taking Simarouba decoction and simultaneously taking Dr. Narayana Murthy's Shimoga herbal treatment for the past 2 months. However, he continues to see bleeding until a few days ago. Now the bleeding has stopped. Is it safe to continue both the herbal at the same time?

Also, what are the symptoms a patient can feel when its curing rectal cancer?

My b-in-law has been taking simoruba for a month now. He had bleeding of and on. But presently his major ailment is breathlessness and complete weakness in addition to his weak emotional state of mind. Pain has also increased accompanied by bleeding. He went through pleurodesis for fluid removal from lungs. He has also taken 2 rounds of albumin and a pint of blood. Tomorrow he is going for third round of albumin as he is anaemic and albumin levels are low. What is your advice as to his condition? Please reply ASAP

Uma Kumar. It is not possible to comment in this case.
Since the physical diagnosis of your brother-in-law is not possible at our end. A complete history of his medical symptoms, the medicines he took and the reports need to be studied. It is advised that you consult your healthcare provider.

Hi
My dad (55yrs) had rectal cancer T2 NxMx which is removed surgically. He was operated for Ultra Low LAR and done with coloanal anastomosis 11 weeks back with temporary illestomy. Now, the anastomosis is taking time to heal and doctors want to operate again to either redo anastomosis or make the colostomy bag permanent so that chemo can be started.

I want to know if we can avoid chemo and wait for the anasotmosis to heal itself and if Simarouba can help so that cancer dont go to recurrence? He is also diabetic and taking insulin two times a day.

Give him a bowl full of ripe Jackfruit every day. A cup of Fennel tea, daily will also help to fight Cancer. Include Garlic in his diet.
