Dandelion Root: Builds Up Blood And Immune System And Has Cured Prostate, Lung, And Other Cancers
You may consider dandelion as a type of weed, but its root has a long history of therapeutic use. Dandelion has been used since ancient times for its healthful properties and support for liver complaints. In Korean herbal medicine dandelion has been used to improve energy levels and health.It is generally accepted by many people in Mexico, and elsewhere in the world, that beneficial effects are available in natural plants. Indeed, research has shown that compounds in plants have pharmacokinetic effects. Dandelion, long speculated to have antioxidant activity and hepatoprotective properties, is one such plant.
Dandelion is a very rich source of beta-carotene which we convert into vitamin A. This flowering plant is also rich in vitamin C, fiber, potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and phosphorus. It’s a good place to get B complex vitamins, trace minerals, organic sodium, and even some vitamin D too. Dandelion also contains protein, more than spinach. It has been eaten for thousands of years as a food and as a medicine to treat anemia, scurvy, skin problems, blood disorders, and depression.
These facts for the plant are well known for years. But recent studies have shown new exciting facts about dandelion root.
A recent research has demonstrated that dandelion root has killed up to 98 % of the leukemia cells in laboratory tests, after only 48 hours.
Dr. Carolyn Hamm from the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre in Ontario, Canada explained that extract from the dandelion root was the only thing that can help with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. A patient named John Di Carlo after his aggressive and unsuccessful treatment for his leukemia was sent home to spend “the last days” of his life, was advised to try tea from a dandelion root. Within four months, he was in a remission and his doctors associated his success to his using dandelion tea. Also, eminent herbalist Maria Treben recommends dandelion root tea for many diseases, including different types of cancer.
Studies showed that dandelion root extract acts very fast on the cancerous cells, in such a way that they disintegrate within 48 hours, during which time new formed healthy cells in the body are not affected.
Further studies have found that dandelion root extract has a potent anticancer activity against prostate cancer, colon cancer, breast cancer, leukemia, liver cancer and best of all lung cancer. There are not significant effects on skin cancer and brain cancer.
The immune system is controlling cancer cells in the body. If the immune system is healthy, usually cancer doesn’t appear. When the immune system is down, the body loses control of the cancer cells and cancer appears. The powder from the dandelion root has a potent phytochemical that builds up the blood and the immune system. Doctors try to remove cancer from the body with chemotherapy and radiation. By doing so, it destroys the immune system and appetite. These two are the most important things the body needs to beat cancer.
How to pick the dandelion root?
You can harvest dandelion root at any time of the year. After you pull off from the ground, cut the leaves off and gently remove the earth around the root. Make sure do not damage it and don’t wash it. After that, dry the root on around 100 degrees on a sun, or you can use an incubator with no water. The whole drying procedure will take around 5 to 6 days. If you break the root, and it snaps, it is ready for use.
Dried dandelion root keeps its active chemicals up to a year. Always store the roots in a glass jar in a cold and dark place.
It is the best to use dandelion root in a form of powder. You can take a little over a half teaspoon of the powder once a day at any time and mix it with water. Do not use it in soft drinks or anything hot.
After three to four days, you will start to feel good, nothing else. In most of the cases, this will build up the immune system in about three weeks. After that, the immune system will take control of cancer cells and will stop its spreading. You should not expect a miracle because this is not an overnight cure so it will take a time until the body removes cancer.
Dandelion is generally considered safe in food and medicinal levels. Some people may have allergic reactions to dandelion. Anyone with an allergy to ragweed, chrysanthemum, marigold, chamomile, yarrow, or daisy should avoid dandelion, and anyone pregnant, nursing, or taking prescription drugs should talk to a health care professional before adding something new to their diet. http://www.blueskyin.com/dandelion-root-builds-up-blood-and-immune-system-and-has-cured-prostate-lung-and-other-cancers/
