HERBS ROOTS KEY
Many herbs and roots have a long history of being used for medicinal purposes. Some have shown evidence of being a key to preventing and protecting us humans from developing certain types of cancer. Below is a list of some of the herbs and roots that have shown to have significant anti-cancer properties.
Native to northern Asia and Europe, Burdock root has been known throughout history as a blood purifier. Recent research indicates that burdock root is effective at removing cancer causing toxins from your blood and your digestive system when food is not digested properly. The root is a powerful antioxidant with compounds like quercetin, luteolin, and phenolic acids that fight free radicals in your body.
Burdock can stop cancer cells from metastasizing through a compound called arctigenin that selectively chooses cancer cells to kill while promoting the health of normally functioning cells. Burdock can be ingested in a tea, a potent oil, a concentrated powder, and even by eating the fresh root
Grape Seed Extract
Grape seed extract has been found by several studies to contain phytochemicals such as proanthocyanidins which have anti-tumor and potential cancer preventative capabilities. These phytochemicals have the ability to stop cancer from metastasizing in every stage of cellular mutation.
Grape seed extract has been found to induce the death of cancer cells, including pancreatic, prostate, and colorectal cancer cells. Rubbing the extract’s oil into your skin can help reduce the growth of skin cancer cells. It’s not just the seed that has benefits but the entire fruit, grapes have antioxidants that are proven warriors against breast, lung, liver, and gastric cancer cell growth as well.
Ginger is the root of a green leafy plant with vibrant yellow flowers. It is native to Asia but is now grown all over Africa, the Middle East, South America, and the Caribbean.
The active ingredients in ginger root, gingerol and 6-shogaol, have gained attention in clinical trials that indicated that ginger might slow the growth of tumors in humans. You may have noticed the buzz around the new scientific development. Ginger has been found to cause cancer cell death, reduce inflammation, and improve immune function. In cases of ovarian cancer, ginger inhibited the growth of cancer cells while promoting overall immune boosting properties. Unlike more traditional therapies of chemo and radiation, ginger heals without harming your body.
You can consume ginger by making a tea by steeping the roots, sprinkling powdered or dehydrated versions in your favorite smoothie, or grating it fresh to top soups or salads.
Native to North America, Goldenseal has been used by Native American communities such as the Iroquois and the Cherokee for hundreds of years to treat a number of issues such as diabetes, skin condition, ulcers, and even gonorrhea.
There is a chemical in goldenseal called berberine that has antiviral and antibacterial qualities. In fact goldenseal is a common ingredient in mouthwashes and toothpastes due to these famed properties. It has been shown to have evidence of lowering the risk of cancers. In a study, berberine was able to slow and stop the growth of breast cancer cells better than the traditional chemotherapy drug.
Please keep in mind that you should consult a doctor or herbalist when taking goldenseal because consuming too much can be toxic for your health.
Aloe vera is a green, fleshy, large leaved plant found in the tropical regions of the world. It is most commonly known for its healing properties for any burns and skin irritation you may have, but it also shows promise in the aid of cancer reversal.
Aloe contains glucose and mannose which when released into the blood stream, activate chemicals from white blood cells that kill cancer cells. The plant also contains a compound called acemannan that is known to stimulate the immune system into making cytokins; these compounds cause death to your cancer cells. Not only that, but acemannan has been shown to help the human body recover from the cancer processes better than that of chemotherapy or radiation.
The plant is also a large source of Vitamin C which is great for fighting inflammation and helping the body absorb iron from plant-based foods. You can use aloe vera topically by applying the gel on your skin. You can also consume the juice or add it into smoothies, soups, freezer pops, etc.
Native to India and Asia, turmeric is widely known as a very powerful anti-inflammatory. The active compound in turmeric, curcumin, has the ability to cause cancer cells to die without harming healthy cells. In a study at the Virginia Commonwealth University, curcumin was shown to prevent the formation of cancer-causing enzymes in mice.
Studies also show that nations whose diets contain a lot of curcumin have lower rates of their populations developing cancer. This is linked to the fact that turmeric reduces inflammation and inflammation is a well known vehicle for cancer.
You can grate or sprinkle turmeric into your soups, smoothies, stir fries, rice dishes, oatmeal– the possibilities are endless. Don’t forget to add black pepper to make it more bio available.
Clove comes from dried flower buds from clove trees in India, China, Pakistan, Madagascar, and Zanzibar. The buds are full of vitamins C and K, manganese, and fiber. For centuries, ancient Chinese medicine has utilized cloves for their antiseptic, antibacterial, antifungal properties.
Clove buds are antioxidants that contain the compound eugenol which is vital in helping your body locate and kill free radicals than can contribute to cancer’s development.
