Dandelion root found to induce cancer cells ‘suicide,’ while leaving healthy ones alone
Dandelion has for thousands of years been considered valuable food and medicine in Eastern and Western culture and is now being explored for the ability to fight cancer.
The use of a Dandelion plant in Greek and Chinese medicine precedes written documents. Traditional healers use it to cleanse the liver, rinse the kidney toxins, and purify the blood.
Blood purification units have prompted researchers at the University of Windsor in Canada to set a hypothesis that dandelion could help patients with blood cancer in the final phase.
To their satisfaction, the Dandln root caused apoptosis or “cellular suicide” in cancer cells, while healthy cells were left alone.
The ability of the Dandelion root to selectively kill only cancer cells – unlike radiation and chemotherapy that kills healthy cells and floods the body with toxins – can make it an invaluable tool in the future of cancer treatment, at least in countries where medical institutions are actually invested in drugs, not keeping people sick people.
As a result of the experiment, the researchers received a green light to test the Dandelion roots on thirty Canadian patients. It’s the first time in Canada that a natural extract has been approved for clinical trials. Unfortunately, the United States has yet to be tracked.
In the “land of free” herbalists are not allowed to treat cancer patients, but they are allowed to offer herbs as an auxiliary therapy, in order to eliminate damage from conventional treatments.
Author Demetria Clark says that if the patient chooses chemotherapy, the dandelion will support the liver and kidneys. Also strengthen the immune system and help detoxify the body. It also helps with nausea.
Not only does the Dandelion root heal the body, but they also feed the body. They are filled with vitamins A, C, K, B6, B3, B9 and B12 and minerals such as iron (crucial for the formation of red blood cells), magnesium, calcium, potassium (regulates blood pressure and heart rate, manganes
Dandelion root is brilliant in salads, in juices or as tea.
