In brief: Not alone

We cannot trust herbals or remedies that have no good evidence that they help in serious research studies.
In patients that have no good alternative to be cured herbals may be tried for compassion. Not all cancers are treated the same. Early stage cancer and some advanced cancers may be cured with conventional treatment.

Taking any medicine - allopathic or otherwise - requires care and careful monitoring, because some can be harmful, and dosages are important. It is best to read the literature with an open mind and be careful what you put in your body.
