Herb robert is a supreme therapeutic herb. Although very little scientific information is available so far, herb robert is one of the most outstanding herbs that we can use regularly to battle various diseases but also as an immune system enhancer.
Herb robert has an mind-blowing medicinal property not often seen in the herbal world.
It is a source of germanium, a valuable element to the body, as it has the ability to make oxygen available to the cells. More oxygen, at cell level, means the body has the opportunity to fight disease by its own powers, and healing can take place quickly. Lack of oxygen, available to the cells, can be caused by free radicals and a toxic state around the cells: meaning the cells cannot get the required oxygen, or the nutrients, to regenerate. The area becomes anaerobic, the main reason we develop pain, disease, wayward cells and cancer.
Dr. Otto Warburg, twice Nobel Prize winner, said in 1966, “The prime cause of cancer is lack of oxygenation of the cells”. He discovered that cancer cells could not exist in the presence of abundant oxygen, but only in an anaerobic state. Because oxygen plays such an important role in cell health and immune function, using herb robert regularly for a few months can take your health to another level.It not only works as an oxygen carrier and catalyst, but also stimulates electrical impulses at a cellular level, which has a beneficial ripple effect throughout the whole body, making it work better, faster and healthier.
The impact of herb robert on the nervous system is well-known and the plant has been long used to help with stress and anxiety. It positively impacts the endocrine system and helps balance hormones that flare up when we are under stress.A cup of tasty tea or a dose of the tincture can be a quick remedy to unpleasant mood and overwhelmed mind.
Because of its diuretic properties, herb robert can improve the health of kidneys and stimulate urination. This eliminates toxins, excess salts, fats, and water from the body, and helps reduce the strain on your kidneys as well as relieving arthritis and joint pains, since the uric acid (which causes the pain in these conditions) is also flushed out of the body with increased urination.
If you’re suffering from cramping, bloating, diarrhea, or a generally upset stomach, adding herb robert to your day can be one of the easiest way to ease your digestive problems. The beneficial organic compounds can quickly soothe inflammation and eliminate bacteria that may be causing the discomfort, and get your gastrointestinal system back to normal.
One of the common uses of herb robert is to relieve inflammation throughout the body.
If you suffer from sore joints, aching muscles, or even internal inflammation of the digestive or cardiovascular system, herb robert can provide relief from the discomfort while reducing the strain on your body’s sensitive areas.
Although quite similar to its anti-inflammatory properties, the analgesic ability of herb robert has made it a popular traditional remedy for headaches and other painful injuries.
It releases endorphins (the "happy" hormones that relieve pain) and can help with headaches, migraines and chronic pain. It has a quick soothing reaction, but it's mostly used for medium amounts of pain.
It helps strengthen the body’s defense system against diseases and infections. Its antimicrobial properties can help prevent internal and external pathogens from negatively impacting the body.Herb robert has remarkable effects on the immune system: as an energy giver, immune builder, and as a powerful therapeutic and preventative, as a vigorous adaptogen, acting to alleviate minor or major health imbalances.

Geranium robertianum or Herb Robert to use its more common name, was once known as Saint Robert’s Herb. It was named after a French monk who lived around 1000 AD, and apparently cured many people suffering from various diseases using this plant.
First Nations people have used it internally to help with many ailments and externally for healing wounds, herpes and skin eruptions. According to an article in The Healing Journal, scientists, herbalists, and botanists have discovered that it’s especially abundant in areas that have high radiation levels (which include under hydro lines). It is believed that Herb Robert absorbs the radiation from the soil, breaks it down and disperses it.
Stinky Bob is another common name of this plant, and it didn't receive it because it is unpleasant smelling to us, but because it's an excellent mosquito repellent - crushing the fresh leaves and rubbing your skin is said to very effective against the annoying bugs!
The name Geranium is Greek for ‘cranesbill’ which is another name for this pretty plant - flowering from Sept-May it has joyful rose pink flowers in pairs with five oval petals that have white stripes.
When the flower is mature, it develops a an oval seed holder that resembles a bird’s beak, which is why the plant has been given the common names: ‘storkbill’ and ‘cranesbill’. As the seeds dry off, nature has a way of dispersing: by opening the ‘beak’ and ejecting with a sudden spring action, flinging the 5 small, oval seeds in five directions, ensuring that there will be future generations of the plant, to the benefit of all.
Common names: Stinky Bob, bloodwort, felonwort, Dragon’s Blood, Red shank, Red Robin and Storkbill.
