      Hi Courages2,

      I'm Aliza, a BC patient and the site's unofficial resident Medical Librarian. Med Librarians shy away from offering medical advice because it constitutes practicing medicine without a license which is a bit illegal (we like to avoid that...;)), BUT I'm allowed to speak from my own experience as a Cancer patient.

      Obviously, lemongrass tea is an herbal tea which must have some kind of properties with which I'm not familiar, so I'd have to say that if you enjoy the flavor, I don't think it will hurt you. You probably should check with your Oncologist though. I highly doubt that it will offer any sort of cure.

      I have found that ginger tea, which I make by using hot water and a piece of candied ginger is excellent for a sore throat.

      I've also found that chamomile tea is relaxing, but again, I'd check with your doctor before using.

      Best wishes,

      I'm not sure what your question is. Do you mean, do we like the taste? Do we think it has beneficial properties? I have some growing in my garden, and am about to dry it for use in tea, but I was just going to do it for the flavor. Are you referring to some kind of research on its properties?

      As a non Hodgkin's lymphoma Large B cell stage IV......your best bet for tea is ginger tea with apiece of candied ginger it will help you a lot as well as ginger cookies. Camomile tea is also tolerable. If you can get some Queasy Pops from threelollies.com they will be your best friend for nausea. Hope this helps.
