(NaturalHealth365) Blood Root is a flowering perennial plant native to eastern North America that displays delicate white flowers in the spring. But, the power of the plant lies in its root system where a special plant alkaloid or chemical is stored. That herbal chemical is called Sanguinarine.
Ancient medicine grounded in good science
Historically, Blood Root was used by the Native Americans to heal many aliments such as stomach problems, respiratory issues and removal of superficial tumors and warts.
Established research in PubMed, science direct and Medline suggest that the alkaloids in Blood Root are good candidates as chemo-therapeutic regimes and successful immune therapies. In fact, positive effects have been shown in laboratory studies for prostate, breast, pancreatic plus many other types of cancer.
How does Blood Root kill cancer cells?
There are numerous studies that detail the effects of Sanguinarine and cellular reproduction. The bottom line is that it causes cancer cell apoptosis meaning that it causes cancer cells to die. The beauty of Blood Root is that it does not harm healthy cells, but only kills the cancer cells. How wonderful is that??!!
But I must caution you that Blood Root by nature is an emetic and if not taken properly, can cause nausea and make you vomit. DO NOT attempt to follow a regime of Blood Root on your own!
Always consult a qualified (trusted) medical professional before you attempt to use Blood Root.
However, like any other form of treatment, whether it is botanical or chemical in nature, the treatment may kill the cancer cells, but it does not correct the root cause of any particular cancer.
Cancer is the symptom and not the cause. You must address what allowed the cancer to develop in the first place.
There are multiple reasons that cancer develops in the body:
1. Poor nutritional habits.
2. Toxicity from the home environment.
3. Toxicity from the external environment.
4. Stress and a body that is out of balance energetically.
5. Unresolved emotional issues that have been buried.
6. Dental issues from toxic amalgams and root canals.
7. A compromised immune system.
There are literally hundreds of herbal plants that have anti-cancer properties. Blood Root is one of many that shows promise for strengthening the immune system and healing cancer. Post your comments – below.
