Fighting Cancer Using Natural Herbs

Cancer has become a global epidemic for decades. More and more people are suffering from this disease every year. Most of them are citizens of developing or under-developed nations. They lack information and knowledge on how dangerous cancer really is, and they also do not have sufficient access to get proper medication.

On the other hand, those who are undergoing chemical therapies are often troubled with thoughts of the potential side effects of their treatments. Conventional cancer treatments usually result in side effects such as hair loss, extreme fatigue, digestive problems, and even weakened immune system. Even after they are cured, it would take a long time for them to recover to their normal state.

Scientists are still trying hard to find a new kind of medication that can cure cancer without producing any adverse effects. They have set their eyes on more natural substances: herbs. Some of them are believed, and have been tested, to effectively fight cancer. This new type of cancer medication opens up a whole new range of possibilities.

Some herbs that are believed to have anti-cancer properties are widely available. A lot of people do not even realize that some of the herbs they consume everyday possess these properties. Here are some examples of therapeutic herbs you can easily find anywhere.

Green tea is a popular beverage in Eastern Asia. In their book “Prescription for Nutritional Healing,” experts James F. Balch, MD, and Phyllis A. Balch, CNC claim that the regular consumption of green tea can prevent the onset of cancer. Green tea is also believed to have an ability to reduce cholesterol levels, and also to fight against bacteria and viruses.

The red clover is believed to have therapeutic properties as well. According to Michael Castleman in his book “The Healing Herbs,” this plant is proven effective to reduce and prevent the formation of tumours. Its reputation to treat cancer is known by more than 33 cultures. Scientists are still investigating other potential properties that this herb might possess.

The third is Echinacea. This plant is widely known by Indian or Native American tribes to treat snake bites or wounds. Recent studies indicate that Echinacea is effective to treat leukaemia (blood cancer) and also tumours.

There are other therapeutic herbs still under investigation by scientists and experts. Hopefully in the future, with this ground breaking discovery, it is possible to completely cure cancer without producing any side effects.
