Chamomile Cancer Cure

chamomileChamomile can assist in a holistic cancer treatment. Chamomile will not cure cancer alone but in combination with other herbs, juices and therapies, chamomile will boost cancer treatment effectiveness.

A study on chamomile conducted at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio found that chamomile extracts slowed cancer cell growth and promoted cancer cell death while leaving normal cells relatively untouched. Researchers also added that the normal digestive process may convert the active ingredients in chamomile (apigenin glucosides) into more powerful cancer-fighters (apigenin aglycone).

Chamomile contains the flavanoids apigenin, quercetin, patuletin, and luteolin. Apigenin has been shown to induce apoptosis in skin, thyroid, gastric, liver, colon, cervical, and prostate cancer cells, and to inhibit migration and invasion of ovarian cancer cells. Apigenin has also been shown to exhibit potent growth-inhibitory effects in breast cancer cells.

A major Italian population study including 2,569 women with breast cancer found that the risk of breast cancer was reduced for increasing intake of flavones (e.g., apigenin, luteolin, tangeritin) and flavonols (e.g., fisetin, quercetin, patuletin, myricetin, kaempferol), including those found in chamomile.

However, extensive studies have not yet been done to verify these claims.

Chamomile Historical Medical Usage

Chamomile is one of the oldest favourites amongst garden herbs and its reputation as a medicinal plant shows little signs of abatement. The Egyptians reverenced it for its virtues, and from their belief in its power to cure ague, dedicated it to their gods. It has been grown for centuries in English gardens for its use as a common domestic medicine. Chamomile comes in capsule, liquid, and tea form.

Chamomile is generally considered to be extremely safe, even in large quantities, and has little potential for negative interactions. Some of these symptoms are very short-lived and generally mild. As always, patients interested in taking chamomile or any other herbal supplement should discuss the possibility with their doctor before self-diagnosing or self-treating.

Chamomile Tea

The tea can be made from flowers freshly picked or dried. Freshly picked flowers can be added directly to a pot filled with just boiled water. Steep the flowers for about three minutes and then remove. The tea can then be poured off into a cup. Consuming a petal or two is not harmful. Nevertheless, to avoid getting petals in the cup, the tea can be poured through a strainer.

Chamomile Cancer Treatment Recommendations

Chamomile tea is excellent during a juice fasting cancer treatment. It can be used at night when you have trouble sleeping.
