Most of us know honey as a sweet treat, but few are aware of its powerful cancer killing properties. Continue reading
As we edge closer towards Breast Cancer Awareness month, one cause that most likely won’t be marketed to us is that of women taking back control of their health by consuming more cancer-fighting foods. In years past, Smith & Wesson’s pink hand gun and KFC’s “buckets for the cure,” Continue reading

“…it takes much more than logic and clear-cut demonstrations to overcome the inertia and dogma of established thought.” — Irving Stone
Irving Stone was an early thinker and writer about vitamin C (its scientific name is ascorbic acid). He knew it would be an uphill battle to change the way Continue reading
Turmeric is a spice derived from the rhizomes of Curcuma longa, a member of the ginger family. Curcuminoids are polyphenolic compounds that give turmeric its yellow color; curcumin is the principal curcuminoid in turmeric.
The results of phase I clinical trials in colorectal cancer patients suggest that biologically active levels Continue reading
Next time you are savoring a creamy cup of Indian chai tea, here’s something to ponder: The characteristic spicy flavor is also what makes chai outrageously healthy. Cinnamon, ginger, clove, anise and black tea are super foods in their own right Continue reading
If you are like most people, when you think of reducing your risk of cancer, exercise probably isn’t at the top of your list. However, there is compelling evidence that exercise can not only help slash your risk of cancer, but can also help cancer patients get well sooner, and help prevent cancer recurrence.
Research has also shown it may help minimize the side effects of conventional cancer treatment. Continue reading
Did You Know…
… that an ingredient found in Tiger Milk Mushrooms may hold the key to new, 100% natural cancer drugs?
Curing cancer with all-natural drugs and no tortuous side effects is no longer a pipe dream but a very real possibility. Continue reading
Most natural health advocates know that dandelion is a good liver tonic. But now research is showing that it’s also a cancer fighter. This research discovery occurred at Windsor University in Windsor, Canada. Continue reading
Medical researchers estimate that over 50% of cancers have defective “p53.” So what exactly is p53 and why does it play such a big part in cancer growth? Continue reading
Numerous studies have established melatonin as one of the most effective anti-cancer treatments in existence. It inhibits cancer cell growth and proliferation; it destroys cancer cells, stops angiogenesis (new tumor blood vessel growth), and prevents harmful forms of estrogen from stimulating cancer cell growth. Despite its success in clinical trials and in doctors’ experiences with their patients, it has not been widely prescribed in conventional medicine, though its effects have proven to be superior to those of many chemotherapeutic drugs.
In one clinical trial, patients with glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer, were given either radiation and melatonin, or radiation alone. Twenty-three percent of the patients who took the melatonin were alive after a year, while none who had received only radiation were still alive. Similarly, in another study by oncologists in Italy, patients with non-small cell lung cancers who had failed chemotherapy were given melatonin. They were compared with other patients with non-small cell lung cancers who weren’t given melatonin. A year later, 26 percent of the patients who had taken melatonin were still alive; Continue reading
We have all heard about the health benefits of resveratrol. It has been in the news for the past couple of years. Resveratrol comes from the skin of grapes and has been touted as an amazing cholesterol-buster and antioxidant.
It’s not surprising, then, that researchers at Colorado State University just completed a new study examining the health benefits of grape seed extract and resveratrol together.
The U.S. researchers found that grape seed extract could inhibit the growth of colon cancer cells in the laboratory. Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer deaths in men and women.
It seems that grape seed extract starts something called “apoptosis.” Apoptosis is a process in which cells are programmed to die. Unlike cell death due to injury, for example, apoptosis is a beneficial process. When the fetus is growing in the womb, apoptosis causes cell death in the fingers and toes, so that they can separate into individual digits. There are many, many other examples of beneficial cell death.
In this particular study, apoptosis appeared to kill off colon cancer cells before they could divide and multiply. In addition, grape seed extract and resveratrol together seemed to have an even more potent effect Continue reading
Bromelain is a natural digestive enzyme extracted from pineapples. The nutrient is rapidly taking its place aside many of the most powerful natural agents in the war on cancer and other chronic conditions that take the lives of millions each year. Research published in Cancer Letters explains the protease enzyme exhibits multiple actions including anti-inflammatory and immune cell activation that can deal a powerful blow to cancer development. Include bromelain in your supplemental regimen to benefit from the potent anti-cancer properties now attributed to this amazing pineapple enzyme.
Similar to super nutrients such as resveratrol, curcumin and green tea extract, bromelain is a potent compound that fights cancer by dissolving unnecessary tissue throughout the body. Bromelain breaks down scar tissue and other debris Continue reading
