Indian Herb for Treatment of Inflammatory Conditions (from McDaniel Life-Line)

Updated on November 20, 2014

In health care since 1977, but keenly aware of Western medicine's shortcomings, Rose Mary began exploring natural health in the late 1990s.

Indian Herb is a dark moist paste made of multiple herbs in a preparation of zinc chloride and Life-Line Catalytic Water. It is distributed by McDaniel Life-Line LLC out of Dimmitt, Texas. Their website states that Indian Herb is helpful in balancing metabolism and blood disorders, or can be taken for prevention or to maintain health. They attribute the formulation of Indian Herb to a gentleman, who in 1890 was diagnosed with incurable cancer. He had a recurring dream in which he saw how to make the medicine that would cure him.

Nowhere on the website does it say “Indian Herb cures cancer”, nor does the site currently post testimonials. A quick web search however turns up glowing reports on McDaniel’s Indian Herb. Jim Humble on Health Salon website refers to “a thousand letters” that the father and daughter team, who have been selling Indian Herb for 60 years, have received in support of the product.

Arrowwind09 has multiple posts on Natural Medicine Talk website on the Indian Herb and Life-Line Catalytic Water. She reproduces general information from the Life Line website, and summarizes numerous testimonials. I did not see any mention as to how the testimonials were acquired. I wonder if the testimonials were on the website at one time, and later taken down. The testimonials report amazing health benefits and recovery from chronic fatigue, allergies, lupus, kidney problems, skin problems, gall bladder problems, and 8 to 10 reports of cancers that were resolved. Arrowwind09 also lists the ingredients of Indian Herb as blood root, yellow dock, licorice, galangal, zinc chloride and Life-Line water.

The distributors note on their website that Indian Herb is not a gentle healer, and that it most often is “relentless” in tracking down and penetrating all abnormal tissue. Therefore swelling, pain, and sometimes elevated temperature occur when using Indian Herb, though they also stat it “is not harmful to the body in any way.” They recommend the use of the herb mixture to take care of the body “while the person comes to terms with their attitudes and changes direction.” When taking the herb, the instructions are clear that clients should not consume alcohol or be on pain killers. Indian Herb is not to be taken while on chemotherapy. There must be a 2 week period off chemo before beginning the herb.

The website provides extensive instructions for using Indian Herb externally on surface growths. It is very descriptive as to how to apply the herb and what to expect. The herb concentrates the growth or toxins, eventually expelling it, leaving a healthy looking wound bed, which by all reports ultimately fills back in with healthy tissue.

I heard about Indian Herb from my doctor, who is a naturopath, herbalist and homeopath with 40 years experience.  He prescribed it to me, as a part of my very comprehensive program, for general health concerns, including a stomach condition. 


Indian Herb comes in a dark plastic vial, like a pharmacy pill container.  It costs $62 including shipping, and is enough to last a long time.  Using a toothpick, I put an amount of the herb the size of half of a dried green pea, into a capsule.  I take it with my first meal.  I’m really just getting started, but will say sometimes I think it does upset my stomach a little.  I’m thinking about taking an even smaller amount twice a day.

    My naturopath prescribed Indian Herb to treat a cervical tumor. I was taking way too much and felt so sick that I stopped. Now I take a match head amount in a veg capsule after my breakfast and dinner. will let you know what happens.

    I've wondered sun_knowledge- whether the "Indian herb" is from American Indian traditions, or from India.

    BTW, self promotion is discouraged in hub comments, and generally in the forums too.

    Great information on Indian herbs. Wonder if there are medication therapy management concepts in India that talk about Indian herbs?

    Let me know if you try it bskinny. I'd recommend starting with an even smaller amount than recommended. I have to be careful, or I get a little stomach upset.

    Thanks for visiting Lamme. The Indian Herb is a reasonable cost, and enough to last a really long time.

    Thanks for the visit Bk and ethel. I'll update this hub after I've used the herb a while. Do you think it's Native American/Indian, or from India, Indian?

    This sounds very good. I am a big fan of Ayurvedic medicine and all the ancient herbal ideas - they work and have thousands of years of testing.

    I'm glad you are adjusting your dosage for what feels right. We have to always use our own good judgment. Thanks for such an informative hub. I've learned something new!
