The most common treatment options for cancer are radiation therapy and chemotherapy. However, these two can result in a number of negative side effects.
This is particularly true for chemotherapy because this treatment kills any rapidly dividing cells, including healthy cells.
The good news is that there are some natural treatments that are thought to treat or minimize cancer. If you wish to learn more, read on.
Curcumin and turmeric
Curcumin is a chemical compound that naturally occurs and is found in turmeric.
The connection between curcumin and reversal of illnesses particularly cancer has been studied extensively throughout the years.
Many studies and experiments on cancer cells indicate that curcumin indeed possesses anti-cancer properties. Based on these studies, it shows that curcumin is capable of fighting cancer cells and prevents more from developing.
In addition, it shows that it is most effective against skin cancer, stomach cancer, bowel cancer, and breast cancer cells.
As a matter of fact, it was shown in a laboratory experiment conducted in 2007 that more bowel cancer cells were destroyed by a combination of curcumin treatment and chemotherapy than when chemotherapy was used alone.
Frankincense essential oil therapy
It has been shown that frankincense essential oil is effective in fighting cancer cells, particularly brain cancer.
More particularly, Boswellia serrata or Indian Frankincense has been proven through clinical research and trials that it is effective in treating the following types of cancer:
Renowned researchers argue that the potential cancer-fighting properties of frankincense are partly because of its capability of influencing your genes to induce healing.
Thus, this makes Boswellia serrata ideal not only for the treatment of cancer but also for its prevention.
To use this method for preventing or treating cancer, just rub frankincense essential oil on your neck 3 times a day. In addition, add 3 drops of this oil to 8 oz of drinking water and drink the solution 3 times a day.
The Budwig diet protocol
Dr. Johanna Budwig was a renowned expert on fats and oils. She was the Senior Expert of the government of Germany on pharmacology and lipids in 1952.
During her time, she was regarded as the best global experts on the topic.
In one of her research studies, she discovered that the membranes of our cells were being destroyed by several of the usual hydrogenated oils and processed fats we consume on a daily basis.
This was causing our cells to become toxic and diseased. In response to her discovery, she formulated a special diet which came to be known as “The Budwig Diet Protocol.”
The purpose of this diet was to neutralize the cancer-causing process. It was her claim that for a period of more than 50 years, her special diet has achieved a success rate of more than 90%.
Since then, her findings were corroborated by hundreds of scientific studies and papers conducted and published. Tons of evidence clearly shows that essential fatty acids were at the heart of the solution to cancers.
How does it work?
Dr. Budwig argued that if you go for life-giving saturated and unsaturated fatty acids instead of toxic processed oils and fats, your cells will be revitalized and renewed.
For best results, according to her, you need to consume a combination of flaxseed oil, flaxseeds, and cottage cheese. Flax contains very high amounts of unsaturated fatty acids that are rich in electrons.
Cottage cheese, on the other hand, contains high amounts of saturated fats and sulfur protein.
When you use the combination specified by Dr. Budwig, these essential nutrients would be absorbed by your body much faster and easier.
Here’s a recipe of the Budwig Diet Protocol, which has been slightly amended to take into account the agricultural changes we have experienced.
- 1 tbsp flaxseed oil
- 4 tbsp flax seeds or ground chia
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp turmeric powder
- 6 oz cottage cheese
Place all of the ingredients listed above in a blender and blend together until smooth. You may also put them in a mixing bowl and mix them together by hand or use an electric mixer.
Consume the mixture once per day.
The Gerson therapy
Dr. Max Gerson is an American doctor born in Germany.
He developed a special diet known as “Gerson Therapy” more than ninety years ago.
This diet helped hundreds of patients suffering from cancer trigger their body’s natural capability to self-heal by recommending that they consume the following:
- Raw Juices
- Plant-based, organic food
- Beef Liver
- Coffee enemas
- Natural supplements
This therapy triggers the human body’s natural extraordinary ability to self-heal without any negative side effects.
It works by boosting your immune system effectively to fight against allergies, cardiac illnesses, arthritis, cancers, and numerous other degenerative conditions.
It concentrates on the most vital metabolic needs of your body. It includes four main aspects:
The Gerson Diet involves the consumption of sprouted grains, vegetables, and fruits that are all organic.
The ideal daily consumption includes three plant-based meals, 13 glasses of fresh fruit and vegetable juice, and fresh fruits only as snacks.
Raw beef liver is also recommended.
It is recommended that you consume lots of freshly pressed juice from raw fruits and vegetables.
To get the best possible nutritional content, the juice should be prepared right before consumption.
When you prepare it way ahead of time, the enzymes, minerals, and vitamins are destroyed.
The body should be kept free from any toxins by regular detox. Coffee enemas are the ideal detox method in the Gerson Therapy.
Up to 5 coffee enemas daily may be required for those suffering from cancer.
Consumption of natural supplements
It is recommended by the Gerson Therapy that you consume the following organic supplements listed below:
- Vitamin B12
- Thyroid hormone
- Potassium compound
- Pancreatic enzymes
- Lugol’s solution
If you are suffering from cancer or know a family member or friend who does, give these treatments a try.
