Fenugreek for weight gain for breast cancer patient - mtl777 - 10-14-2013 03:41 PM

Hi James, I would like to try fenugreek for my aunt who has breast cancer and is very skinny. I thought that it might help her gain weight and at the same time fight her breast cancer, because I've read about people gaining weight with it, http://voices.yahoo.com/use-herb-fenugreek-may-lead-unwanted-weight-6543068.html , and also about its anti-cancer effect, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22471470 . What do you think? Am I on the right track with this?

Thanks so much!

Fenugreek can help for a variety of reasons. The phytoestrogens in fenugreek can antagonize estrogens. Fenugreek also helps promote digestion.
