Herb Robert ~ High Demand ~ 02/09/07
This is the most called for herb at the Herb Farm, and is a herb that I have come to revere.
I first heard about it about 30 years ago, when a man brought to the Herb Farm an article which was printed as a news item in Herald of Health, entitled ‘Geranium Robertainum, ancient herb used in the treatment of defeating cancer’. The article gave details of how the herb was used and case histories of people who had complete remission from cancer.
It truly is a supreme herb, one that has helped many people to better health from numerous ailments, with its powerful antioxidant and immune enhancing properties. Research has shown that the plant is a source of the mineral ‘germanium’, a valuable element to the body, with the ability to make oxygen available to the cells. More oxygen at cell level means the body has the opportunity to fight disease by its own powers, and healing can take place. So many people have shared their experiences of returning to health when they used the herb for many conditions of the body.
Herb Robert is an annual that grows to 30-40cm and likes shade. The dainty 5 petalled pink flowers make it a very showy plant. The leaf stems are red, and leaves may also go red. This pigment has been shown to increase and normalise cell respiration - the oxygen-based energy production within cells. Grow this remarkable herb and use it daily, as it can help the body to heal, and also act as a preventative.
