Herbal Cancer Remedies
Another famous cure developed in the 1920′s by a Canadian Nurse, Rene Caisse, was borrowed from the Ojibwas Indians called Essiac or Ojibwa Indian Tea. The Royal Cancer Commission found in 1937 that it was indeed effective in treating terminally ill cancer, and in 1938 it came within three votes of legalization. Rene alone was allowed to use it without profit until her death in 1978, when the Canadian Government sadly destroyed all her records.
There are four main parts to this tea. Burdock and Rhubarb roots, along with Slippery Elm are used as blood purifiers combined with the tops of young Sheep’s Sorrel (Rumens acetosella). The use of Essiac is growing widely and spreading to other countries. There are also growing evidence that some distributors have substituted yellow dock for curly dock for the essential Sheep’s Sorrel.
Another traditional herbal cancer remedy brought forward to us from the Aborigines is made from the twigs and stems of Pawpaw. Back in 1962 along the Queensland Gold Coast it was used to cure rapidly spreading tumors in both lungs of Stan Sheldon. Throughout Queensland this cure is now widely used.
The New Scientist did an article exclaiming that a chemical had been discovered in one certain variety of Pawpaw that was a billion times more stronger or more effective against cancer cells than any other cancer drug known to this day. Another cancer drug from the Aborigines is the Maroon Bush used down under. Where Mistletoe was the European alternative according to the folklore legend, by Richard Steiner.
From the old school of American herbalists a well known advocate of cancer cures was Jethro Kloss. His remedy was composed of mainly red clover flower blossoms, the roots of burdock and yellow dock, golden seal and the leaves and flowers of violets. Also included were Echinacea, agrimony, dandelion root and aloe combined to make a very powerful and successful remedy.
Probably more famous and even more widely used in a number of countries around the world is the Hoxley Herbal mixture. Thousands of patients back in mid nineteen twenties confirmed its potency in alleviating cancer. Quite a lengthily list of ingredients was used in the herbal preparation. Here is a list of the following herbs. Armarga, beriberis root, buckthorn bark, burdock, licorice, poke root, prickly ash, red clover, stillingia root and potassium iodide. He also used three topical cures that covered any visible tumors that would cause them to dehydrate and fall off. In New Zealand presently, Herbveil 8 and KC101 and cansema are being utilized for melanoma and breast tumors that are close to the skin.
In his book “Killing Cancers”, Jason Winters detailed his own cure. As well as dietary changes he made a concoction of red clover, gotu kola, chaparral, selenium and some other ill defined roots and spices not available in most countries. Chaparral is still a controversial herb to this day as some people reported it causes lesions on their livers.
These natural remedies, herbal brews and scientific alternatives can provide great relief for people who are constantly suffering from the unbearable symptoms of any form of cancer. By choosing to rely on a professional alternative health care specialist, you are taking your pain and life into your own hands. As cancer patients are more than likely already taking more than enough prescription medications we feel that it is worth it to experiment with the alternative side of the spectrum. Again, it is important to choose to work with a qualified health care practitioner before you combine any alternative treatments with your already existing medical plan.
