Cancer comes in many forms. Today there are approximately 200 different types. 

Since cancer is the result of damaged cells, it is important to keep your body healthy by giving it what it needs to function properly.

The human body is extraordinary in that it has the ability to heal itself. That being said, it still needs your attention. It will suffer if you mistreat it on a continuing basis. Think of it as a machine that requires consistent maintenance in order to perform optimally over an extended period of time. Any machine that is not taken care of will eventually break down.
Your body requires vitamins, trace minerals, herbs, exercise, indirect sunlight, and rest.

In this post, I will share with you some herbs that will help your body fight against one of the plagues of this century, cancer.

Green Tea has been shown in studies to reduce the risk of certain types of cancer as well as protecting the body against the harmful effects of chemotherapy. It contains powerful antioxidant flavonoids called polyphenols that inhibit cancer growth. It also helps to detoxify the liver and increases the body's ability to absorb vitamin C.

Horehound is a folk remedy used to treat leukemia and malignancies. Studies have shown that the extracts of the anti-inflammatory horehound leaves cause suppression of cell growth as well as induction of apoptosis in human colorectal cancer cells.

Kelp is a sea vegetable that is valued for its abundance of minerals. It is rich in polysaccharides, which are known to have anti-cancer properties and to inhibit the growth of tumors.

Pau d'arco is a South American herb that has wide antibacterial, antiviral, anti-parasitic, and antifungal properties. It is effective in the treatment of candida, and has a reputation as a cancer-fighting herb. Be careful of the type used. Bark of the yellow flowering pau d'arco, Tabebuia neochrysantha, and Tabebuia aurea should be avoided. Look for companies that produce a whole inner bark decoction.

Red Clover is an herb that is used for many conditions, one of which is the treatment of tumors and cancer. It can be combined with other herbs, such as burdock root, dandelion root, pau d'arco, or rhubarb. It is not safe to use Red Clover if you presently take blood thinners.

Shiitake Mushrooms have powerful anticancer properties. They contain a compound called lentinan, which is believed to stop or slow tumor growth. They also contain another component, active hexose correlated compound, which is said to reduce tumor activity and lessen the side effects of cancer treatment.

As always, if you are undergoing treatment for any condition, consult your doctor before integrating these herbs into your diet.

Wishing you good health and much success…
