What is the herbal medicine for someone with essential thrombocytosis?

None: No herbal medicines have taken the place of hydrea (hydroxyurea) so far. Perhaps a new agent will show effectiveness in the future, but so far, nothing works as well as hydrea (hydroxyurea). ET at age 38 is not as dangerous as ET at age 60, but should still be checked by a hematologist, and treatment considered especially if platelet counts are high.
