He Fought Cancer With These Spices, His Results Were Amazing
Rachel Sebastian 5/9/2016
Certain spices, not commonly found in American dishes, are stopping many kinds of cancer in its tracks!
In addition to fighting cancer cells, these spices can help with a laundry list of other maladies, like inflammation and allergies. It's best to get organic spices and to get them as fresh as possible for the best results. Here are the spices known to best treat cancer and improve your overall health.
Add Some Turmeric
Turmeric powder is a powerhouse of a spice, as it includes curcumin, a cancer-fighting polyphenol. Curcumin stops the growth of cancer cells in many different types of cancer, including melanoma, prostate, kidney, colon, bone and stomach cancers, as well as inhibiting growth of brain cancer cells. This amazing spice also stops cancer from developing in the first place. Curcumin also kills cancer cells without killing the healthy cells, an extremely beneficial reaction called apoptosis. Although the pharmaceutical industry hasn’t figured out a curcumin-based treatment for cancer, there have been numerous studies showing the amazing anti-cancer effects of curcumin.
The Power Of Oregano
This spice, originating from the Mediterranean, is a robust parasite fighter that is also loaded with antioxidants. Like turmeric, oregano promotes apoptosis, which kills cancer cells while leaving the healthy cells alone. It also contains quercetin, an anti-inflammatory phytochemical that is shown to slow the progression of cancer cells. If you suffer from allergies, you'll want to get your hands on this incredible spice, too. Many swear by oregano as a natural histamine-blocker to clear up allergies as well as sinus issues.
The More Garlic, The Better
This is definitely a bonus to those of us who love garlic bread or a garlic cream sauce. Garlic is the most robust anti-cancer spice! Alongside turmeric and oregano, garlic promotes apoptosis, all while lowering the risk for developing colon, intestinal, stomach and prostate cancers. Garlic has been shown to also help with DNA repair as well as slowing down cancer cell growth. As a daily standard, the World Health Organization recommends eating one fresh clove per day. Bring on that garlic bread!
Use Cayenne Pepper To Kick Cancer
Cayenne pepper is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to crushing cancer. The compound in cayenne pepper that makes your mouth, lips and tongue catch on fire is called capsaicin, and is the key ingredient that kills cancer cells. If you can handle more heat, and want to incorporate even more capsaicin into your cancer fighting diet, try habanero peppers as well. Habanero peppers contain four to six times more capsaicin than cayenne pepper.
Spice It Up
Try incorporating these spices into your favorite dishes to help treat and prevent cancer. Not only can they reduce your risk of many types of cancers, they all taste great added to soups, dips and sauces. To try them all at once, follow this recipe for a cancer-fighting super salad.
