Alternate Cancer Remedies
overload which kills the cancer patient, not the tumor. Notice the nice balance that Essiac already has: Burdock root - cleans the blood and helps flush the kidneys. Sorrel - helps fight the tumor, but especially flushes the bowels and the kidneys. Rhubarb - is a blood cleanser, and also re- lieves the stomach, cleans the bowels, and is a mild laxative. Slippery elm bark - soothes the entire gastro- intestinal tract in the process of absorbing toxins and taking them out. It is clear that the above herbs do more clean- ing than fighting—which is very important. If we added echinacea (or goldenseal, red clover tops, etc.) to the four-herb formula, we might produce too much destruction of the tumor, with no re- sources to carry off, and out of the system, the waste products. Before concluding this, let us note the remark- able properties of echinacea. The narrow-leaved purple coneflower (Echinacea angustifolia) is the best source, and better than the pale purple cone- flower (Echinacea pallida) or the purple cone- flower (Echinacea purpurea). Echinacea is truly remarkable! “Plains Indians are said to have used Echin- acea for more medicinal purposes than any other plant group. Root (chewed or in tea) used for snakebites, spider bites, cancers, tooth- aches, burns, hard-to-heal sores and wounds, flu, and colds. Science confirms many tradi- tional uses, plus cortisone-like activity; also insecticidal, bactericidal, and immunostimulant activities. Considered a nonspecfiic immune system stimulant. More than 200 pharmaceu- tical preparations are made from Echinacea plants in W. Germany, including extracts, salves, and tinctures, used in wounds, herpes sores, canker sores, throat infections, preventive for influenza, colds. A folk remedy for brown re- cluse spider bites.”—Foste , 200.
____________________ MORE HERBAL HELP
In addition to those named earlier (Essiac, Hoxsey, Winters, and Montagna), here are still more anti-cancer herbs and formulas. These should provide a field day for researchers:
As mentioned in the historical section,
mistletoe, pau d’arco, and chaparral each have received acclaim for success in, at times, remit- ting cancer. Of these, pau d’arco is superior to
chaparral for two reasons: First, it has the same cancer-fighting chemical in it (nordihydro- guaiaretic acid, or KDGA); and, second, it is not as harsh and does not have the side effects that chaparral has at times.
It was also mentioned earlier that comfrey,
echinacea, and goldenseal have sometimes been used alone in the treatment of malignancies.
Alfalfa has anti-cancer properties.
A rectal implant of chlorophyll (in an en-
ema held in the bowel for 30 minutes), taken daily after the bowel is cleaned by enemas or colonics, will help detoxify the system.
Cabbage leaf poultices or castor oil packs
may be placed over the tumor. When pain is pre- sent, mix wild lettuce and valerian tincture (10 drops) in warm water and take every hour.
Eucalyptus oil may be placed on the affected
Tea-tree oil mixed with goldenseal powder
may be placed on the area. (Tea-tree oil is also spelled tee-tree and ti-tree; it is also known as melaleuca.)
Here is another one: Simmer sorrel and
plantain in olive oil for 2 hours, let cool, and place the salve on the area.
There are nonpoisonous herbs that can pu-
rify the blood and kill malignant growths inter- nally or externally, leaving no bad after effects. Cancer will not survive in a system when the blood stream is pure. Always take herb teas an hour be- fore drinking fruit juice.
Here is a useful herbal formula: Mix together
as many of the following powdered herbs as pos- sible (all if you can get them): Chaparral, red clo- ver, echinacea, violet leaves, burdock root, lico- rice root, bloodroot, dandelion root, sanicle, buckthorn bark, and ginger. Place the mixture in 00 (double ought) capsules. Take 2 capsules 4 to 6 times daily. Along with this, garlic, carrot juice, and beet juice could be taken daily. Fluid is needed to neutralize and flush out the poisons.
Dr. Hans Neiper, a German cancer special-
ist, uses carnivora, a South American plant.
Here is another anti-cancer herbal combi-
nation: Red root, flaxseed, yellow dock, sanicle, witch hazel, tansy, wood sage, white oak bark, rock rose, mullein, hops, mugwort, elder, colts- foot.
This is a herbal tea to take internally: chap-
arral tea (especially for skin cancer), apricot seeds, garlic, red clover blossom tea, burdock, echinacea, black walnut, ginseng, goldenseal,
