Cancer Plants 

Sanguinaria Canadensis Part I

The medicinal uses of bloodroot were learned from Native Americans living in the region of Lake Superior as well as the Cherokee further to the south. Bloodroot was prized for its root sap, an interesting exudate that remarkably resembles blood. The roots, usually used fresh, are made into washes, poultices, snuffs, dental powders, and escharotic salves.

Chaparral

Chaparral is a truly fascinating plant. It is discussed in the appendix of my book. There are a hundred or more varieties of plants that are called chaparral. The primary one that is used medicinally is Larrea tridentata. It grows mainly in the deserts of Arizona, California, and Mexico.

Annona muricata

In a 1976 plant screening program by the National Cancer Institute, graviola leaves and stem showed active cytotoxicity against cancer cells and researchers have been following up on these findings since. Much of the cancer research on graviola focuses on a novel set of phytochemicals called annonaceous acetogenins. Graviola produces these natural compounds in its leaf and stem, bark, and fruit seeds.

Hydrastis canadensis

The use of goldenseal was taught to early American colonists by Cherokee and Iroquois medicine men and women.  It was used in many cancer treatments by 19th century cancer specialist, Dr. John Pattison, whose work is discussed in Ingrid Naiman’s book, Cancer Salves: A Botanical Approach to Treatment.

Viscum album

Mistletoe preparations show cytotoxic properties in vitro and to some degree in vivo. It has also shown to stimulate the immune system response through an increased number of white blood cells. Both of these properties have made mistletoe a candidate for cancer and AIDS remedy research.

Many experts throughout history have regarded cancer salves and pastes as the most thorough, safe, and efficacious way to treat cancer, especially skin and breast cancers but also cancers of other organs. In this book, Ingrid Naiman meticulously traces the use of such products in ancient India and by Hildegard of Bingen, Native Americans, and modern physicians. She provides detailed instructions for making and using the salves, a fair comparison of the pros and cons, and eight pages of color pictures showing responses to the products. Visit her Cancer Salves site for more information, answers to frequently asked questions, and a checklist for people facing cancer.
