In 2016, there will be an estimated 1,685,210 new cancer diagnosis. For many people, receiving a cancer diagnosis results in feelings of hopelessness. In 2014 nearly 14.5 million people lived beyond their diagnosis and this number is expected to rise to 19 million by 2024! Many scientist continue to seek out a cure for cancer, while other scientists are exposing the cures that already exist in nature. (1)
Dandelion root extract and long pepper extract provide major breakthroughs in holistic cancer treatment!
Dr. Siyaram Pandey has been completing research on how dandelion root and long pepper extracts cause cancer apoptosis. Dr. Pandey shared his scientific findings in a recent TED talk reporting that both dandelion root and long pepper extracts kill cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone. He reported that dandelion root extract killed leukemia cancer cells within 24 hours! Dr. Pandey also found that long pepper extract not only kills cancer cells but also targeted the mitochondria or powerhouse of the cancer cells. (2)
Dandelion root extract found to kill leukemia cancer cells, prostate cancer cells, and chemo-resistant melanoma!
Dr. Pandey’s research is groundbreaking but not the only research out there that demonstrates these results. A 2008 clinical study showed that dandelion tea effectively decreased breast cancer and prostate cancer cells. A 2011 publication in the International Journal of Oncology corroborated these findings reporting that a dietary supplement containing dandelion suppressed the growth of prostate cancer cells. Another 2011 study reported that dandelion root extract induced apoptosis in chemo-resistant melanoma.(3)
The scientific community became aware of Long Pepper in 2011 following a breakthrough by Harvard researchers. The team of researchers found in that the herb had the ability to stop cancer growth in both laboratory and animal studies.(4)
Several studies confirm that Long Pepper extract kills cancer cells by stopping the growth and metastasis of cancer cells resulting in cancer cell death!
A study from Sweden also confirmed Dr. Pandey’s findings reporting that Long Pepper stimulated the death of cancer cells without harming healthy cells. A Thailand study found that Long Pepper blocks the ability of human lung cancer cells to communicate with each other, therefore shutting down telomerase activity. A different study found that Long Pepper stops the growth of both androgen dependent and androgen independent prostate cancer cells.(4)
With the growing amount of research supporting natural cancer treatments, there continues to be hope for cancer treatment without the toxic effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
