Benefits of beets documented to defeat cancer

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

beets(NaturalHealth365) Beets have long been known as a healthy source of nutrients, but – now, more than ever – scientific evidence continues to support beets as a natural cure for cancer.  Labeled “beet root chemotherapy” by some health experts, actual scientific research reveals the astounding cases of remission in cancer patients who were given high concentrations of beet root.

This root vegetable, best known for its red color, has been enjoyed in various forms for generations as a healthy source of iron, as well as potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sulfur, magnesium, iodine and a number of trace minerals. But, the combination of certain elements found only in specific combinations and concentrations within the beet give this veggie its cancer fighting and disease preventing power.

There are many ways to naturally cure cancer. The NaturalHealth365 INNER CIRCLE offers over 300 audio/video programs (and counting!) plus over 200 integrative healthcare providers talking about natural ways to detoxify the body and boost immune function.

Scientific evidence reveals the cancer-fighting power of beets

One of the most-often cited studies of work relating to the benefits of beet juice and cancer-fighting properties of beets is that of Dr. Alexander Ferenczi at the Department for Internal Diseases, Csoma, Hungary, in the late 1950s. Using nothing but raw, red beets, the doctor was able to record amazing results of remission in cancer patients. Decades later, his work would be republished in the Australian International Clinical Nutrition Review.

In one study, a 50-year-old man suffering from a lung tumor, which corresponded clinically to lung cancer, was treated with beet root by Dr. Ferenczi. In just six weeks, the tumor had disappeared and after four months, the man gained back just over 20 pounds. His blood work results corresponded to clinical recovery.

In another study, a prostate cancer sufferer and uterine cancer patient were both admitted to the hospital. At the time of admission, both weighed the same. The man with the prostate cancer received beet root treatment, but the doctor noted that the uterine cancer patient could not take it. Although he had been bedridden with a catheter when admitted, the man was able to have his catheter removed after a month, and soon began walking around and putting back on weight. The female patient, however, continued to lose weight. After just three months, there was a weight difference of over 23 lbs. between the two.

The fact that other iron-rich foods do not have the same effect could mean the benefits of beets and the secret to beet root’s ability to ward off cancer may lie in the red color. Dr. Ferenczi, along with his co-worker Dr. S. Schmidt, believed that the traces of rubidium and caesium were critical.

They also noted that while other foods contained iron, the human body is able to assimilate iron from the beet root more readily than almost any other known food. Researchers suspect some catalyst in the beet root which helps the body more easily use the available iron.

The best way to consume beets to defeat cancer

Because beets are a vegetable and healthy to eat, the biggest advantage to the cancer-fighting benefits of beet juice is that you do not have to worry about harmful side effects from their consumption. To beat cancer, it is best to administer beet root in its most concentrated form. Beet root is available in many different forms, although beet powder is probably the most popular and can be found in most health food stores.

A typical serving size is one to two teaspoons of beet juice powder added to 8 ounces of water plus 8 ounces of fresh vegetable juice.  For those already suffering from some type of cancer, larger dosages may be necessary for desired results.  Keep in mind, beet juice powder is more potent and concentrated – compared to simply juicing beets.

One word of caution: Be careful not to administer too much of the concentrated beet root at any given time due to its ability to act quickly in breaking down cancer cells. Obviously, cancer patients need to be careful – and work with a qualified healthcare provider – because the effect can result in too many toxins for the body to eliminate. Some advocates for this natural cancer treatment suggest going through a colon and liver detox process prior to the consumption of beet root concentrate – to avoid health issues related to the rapid breakdown of waste products.

Ultimately, to fully heal from a cancer diagnosis, one must regain healthy digestive (and elimination) function; remove unwanted toxins from entering or residing in the body and resolve any emotional issues or other excessively stressful situations like dental problems, systemic infections and overexposure to EMF pollution.

    This is one of the best articles on the value of beets for general health. I use them in carrot and green juices. They seem to give me an energy boost throughout the day. It takes using them in small quantities a few times a week to get consistent results.

    If I understand this well; here we have a report about one Hungarian doctor with 2 anecdotal cases of cancer remission where beets may or may not have played a role. Then we start speculating about the reasons as to why, throw in something incomprehensible about weight loss in comparison to an unrelated case, iron absorption and of course detoxification this and that and we have a solid case for curing cancer.
    I don’t buy it.
    By the way; too much iron is toxic.

    I love beets though.

    This makes sense for cancer – beets are very high in nitric oxide which helps bring oxygen from the tissues into the cell. Any athlete would know this- beets help to enhance endurance training. It brings more oxygen to the cells which is very important to help kill cancer cells. Beets are more effective at this than all other veggies supplying nitric oxide.

    I think its the betaine in beets that has the greatest anti-cancer effect. Not many foods have betaine but beets are rich in it. Betaine is important for detoxification and also helps increase methylation. The red color comes from betanin.
