Q: Do you know of any herbal remedies for getting rid of sarcoids?
our research into herbs which help with sarcoids we have used a
combination of four ayurvedic herbs on around 30 cases with good
results. Giving herbs at a rate of 10g per 100kg bodyweight, we
normally find that the lumps are held in check after around 30 days.
Normally, after two to three months, the lumps start to shrink and
in may cases have completely disappeared after four to six months.
This is quite
exciting work. It appears that the growth of such lumps is closely
linked to immune system weakness, and the use of antioxidant mixes
can eliminate most problems.
