MY WARMEST congratulations to Dr Henry Lowe and his team on their research and development of Jamaican herbs that have cancer-fighting properties. Here are two other local herbs that are useful and safe to consider using.
Anamu: What Jamaicans call guinea hen weed or garlic weed is known in South America as anamu. This is a herb that is indigenous to the Amazon rainforest and the tropical areas of the Caribbean, Central and South America, and Africa.
Its botanical name is Petiveria alliacea and it has a long history of use in herbal medicine in all the countries where it grows. Natural health practitioners have traditionally used anamu for various conditions including cancer, arthritis, digestive disorders, infections, diabetes, pain relief and even to induce abortions.
