Chinese herbs stimulate immune system in post-treatment breast cancer patients

Eighty-two women who had received conventional treatment for breast cancer took daily doses of two Chinese herbs (yun zhi and dan shen) for six months. Blood samples showed significant increases in immunological function, including increases in absolute counts of B-lymphocytes and T-helper lymphocytes.
