According to the World Health Organization, cancer causes more than 7.6 million deaths each year. Plus, they project that cancer deaths will continue to rise through the year 2030, at which point the crystal ball gets cloudy based on current statistics.
Does that sound like we are winning the government war on cancer? The government started waging this war in 1971, spending more than one trillion taxpayer dollars (and counting) on failed research. Plus, the costs of cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment add trillions more.
The mainstream government-industrial cancer industry sticks with failed screening programs. It over-diagnoses and over-treats about half of all cases wrongly labeled as “cancer.” And it continues to use surgery, radiation and chemotherapy as the first-line treatments.
In the meantime, they continue to neglect the many natural compounds with scientifically demonstrated anti-cancer activities. In fact, research suggests that cancer relates to a build-up of toxins, which reduces cell oxygenation and damages DNA. It also causes inflammation, hormonal imbalances, and other problems that increase cancer risk.
Some studies suggest cancer also relates to energetic and emotional-spiritual imbalances.
In fact, mounting evidence suggests that cancer is preventable. Not an inevitable consequence of aging.
The real answers to preventing cancer lie in eating clean, antioxidant-rich foods, drinking pure water, and keeping intestinal function clear. These approaches help reduce and counteract exposures to chemicals, medications, dyes, carcinogens, heavy metals, pesticides, and other environmental toxins.
In addition, research shows 10 herbal remedies have potential for cancer prevention. They can also play an adjunct role in conventional cancer treatment.
- Black Pepper
Black pepper reduces chronic inflammation and has other anti-cancer activities. It also may increase the effectiveness of certain anti-cancer medications. This finding suggests that cancer patients could potentially receive lower doses of toxic chemotherapy when given in combination with black pepper. Crude extract of pepper also helps GI function. So ¾ generously use black pepper as a seasoning for your foods.
Research shows dandelion kills cancer cells. (It also has other health benefits, as I often report.) You can make a salad with fresh dandelion or add it to other fresh vegetables such as broccoli, lemon, and raw pumpkin seeds, which also have anti-cancer properties.
Echinacea (purple coneflower) is one of the most widely used herbal remedies in the world today. It helps the body heal from the debilitating, metabolic effects of cancer. It also helps relieve anxiety and fatigue. In addition, when you feel yourself coming down with a cold or flu, use Echinacea to reduce the severity and duration. There is no standard dose and it is typically brewed as an herbal infusion or tea.
- Ginger root
Ginger root has potent anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer activities. It also aids digestion and reduces nausea and vomiting caused by cancer chemotherapy drugs.
It inhibits growth of ovarian cancer cells. You can make fresh ginger root tea with lemon, honey (which is a healthy natural food that also reduces cancer cell proliferation), and other ingredients, steeped in hot water. It is also useful for upper respiratory infections.
- Grape seed
Grape seed extract outperforms some chemotherapy drugs in killing cancer cells. It also inhibits cancer cells that have grown resistant to cancer drugs. Plus, unlike chemotherapy, it does not harm your normal cells.
Holy basil counteracts chemically induced cancers. You can consume it by diluting the standardized extract in water.
Licorice root has soothing, anti-inflammatory effects. Plus, it detoxifies the liver, your first line of defense against many dietary and environmental carcinogens. It is commonly found in Chinese herbal mixtures for treating cancer. In the U.S., it is also used for menopausal hot flashes.
Parsley can help prevent oxidative stress, which relates to a wide variety of conditions. It contains quercetin, a plant pigment found in green, leafy vegetables. Quercetin can inhibit the growth of cancer cells. So ¾ add a handful of chopped parsley to virtually any dish. And when it appears as a garnish on your plate, eat it.
Turmeric also has many anti-cancer effects. It fights cancer cells as effectively as a dozen different cancer drugs. It works against breast, colon, and melanoma skin cancer cells. You can add turmeric as a seasoning in soups, salads, meat, and vegetable dishes. You can also find as an ingredient in dietary supplements for its anti-inflammatory and joint health benefits.
Watercress is an aquatic plant that supports detoxification and inhibits carcinogenesis. Watercress extract effectively fights against colon and stomach cancer cells. Plus, smokers given watercress showed elimination of carcinogens in their urine.
You rarely see these natural approaches used in high-profile clinical treatment trial studies, despite all the evidence. But there is a world of natural anti-cancer remedies awaiting you.
