The Amazing Herb Robert

This maybe a plant you are not familiar with although it is likely to be flourishing somewhere in your garden right now. To many it’s a weed and I wanted to draw your attention to this amazing plant before you pull it up and discard it.    Herb Robert is a pretty little plant with a fern like leaf and little pink flowers and is part of the geranium family.  It was bought to my attention by a herbalist who captured my interest with a long list of its healing qualities.

This little herb has some amazing nutritional properties, not only full of important vitamins it contains many minerals including potassium, phosphorus, iron, calcium, sodium, manganese and germanium which is a free radical scavenger that creates an oxygen rich environment in the cells and is highly beneficial for us.  For instance cancer cannot survive in oxygen rich environments.

Herb Robert also contains phyto-nutrients that have anti-tumour properties helping to boost and balance the immune system.  This herb also detoxifies the blood, liver and regulates blood sugar levels. Many diabetics take this plant to help with their diabetes.  Hundreds of people have claimed they have cured cancer by taking this plant, too many to be ignored.

Other wonderful healing benefits that have been reported from this herb are chronic fatigue, colitis, cataracts and it also helps with pain relief.

The leaves can be eaten in salads, soups or popped into smoothies.  You can make a tea by infusing the leaves for 10 to 15 minutes.

You can also make a foot infusion that is said to remove toxins from the body
