Posted by Laurie @roch, Thu, Apr 11 5:55am

My Dr. told be about a 2012 Mayo research study showing ginseng may help with fatigue in cancer patients:

I have just started taking ginseng, so too early to know if will make a difference.

Has anyone else tried ginseng?

If a Breast Cancer patient, make sure you notice statement in article about some off-the-shelf ginseng is sometimes processed using ethanol, which can give it estrogen-like properties that may be harmful to breast cancer patient.

I ordered my ginseng from Ginseng Co-op from Wi: http://www.ginsengherbco-op.com/ . They are mentioned in article. You can check prices at their web site.

I doubled checked with my care team to make sure that ginseng would not interfere with other medications I was taking.

I am hoping it will restore some on my energy.

@roch, It has been a few months since you started taking ginseng for fatigue. Has it helped? What has been your experience?
