Why worry about naturally preventing cancer (or any other disease, for that matter)? Surely, it’s no longer necessary.
After all, we live in an age of incredible medical and technological discoveries. It’s truly amazing to see the advancements mankind has made in the last century alone. From reattaching limbs to organ transplants, we are truly fortunate to live in the modern time that we do!
There’s a treatment or pill for just about everything that ails you …
Unfortunately, we’ve lost sight of the natural remedies that have been used (effectively) for thousands of years. We may be able to treat illness and disease with more options but there are a lot more people getting sick!
Science has finally begun to realize there are limits to their accomplishments. There are some things that doctors and scientists just can’t do. All the advancements in the world aren’t as important as one single thing: Preventing cancer in the first place.
Outside of telling you to quit smoking, to drink less alcohol, or to protect your skin from the sun, prevention isn’t something that mainstream medicine focuses on. However, there’s another great benefit to living “now” as opposed to 100, 50, or even 20 years ago: Researchers around the globe are beginning to verify the benefits of natural medicine.
Once upon a time, before expensive treatments and pharmaceutical giants, there were men and women – healers and shamans – who took care of their communities. These early physicians did far more than bandage wounds and mend broken bones. They treated and prevented diseases with the bounty that nature provided.
At last, holistic methods of preventing disease are taking the spotlight. Some of these “miracles” have been around since the earliest civilizations. They aren’t “newly discovered” as the media makes it seem. These are ancient, effective ways to keep the human body healthy.
Many of these treatments and cures are still being used today. Some have only recently been discovered in the Western World. To read the headlines, you’d think they were entirely new!
Fight (and Prevent) Cancer with 3 Powerful Herbs
Cancer is one of the most feared, yet most common, diseases that plague humankind today.
The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that there were 14 million new cases in 2012 alone. It’s responsible for almost 9 million deaths annually. 
Anything you can do to prevent it must be part of your daily life.
You can be proactive, introducing natural cancer-fighters, and do everything you can to keep your doctor from ever diagnosing you with this fearsome disease. Following an anti-cancer diet is not only smart … it’s delicious!
Modern science has taken a big interest in the following three herbs. They stand out as natural preventatives, powerful cancer fighters, and have been part of holistic medicine practices for thousands of years.
A common ingredient in Asian cooking, turmeric is a spice used in herbal remedies in India, China, and Indonesia. The active ingredient in turmeric is an antioxidant called curcumin. Turmeric has been used medicinally for nearly three thousand years.
The Mayo Clinic wrote, “Laboratory and animal research suggests that curcumin may prevent cancer, slow the spread of cancer, make chemotherapy more effective and protect healthy cells from damage by radiation therapy.” 
Often used for energy and pep, ginseng also relieves severe fatigue – a common side effect of traditional cancer treatments.  Your immune system responds well to ginseng – keeping you stronger and preventing the development of the disease in the first place.
A study at the School of Chinese Medicine – Hong Kong Baptist University – recently showed ginseng’s anti-tumor qualities. Though ginseng is a cancer killer, unlike traditional cancer therapies – it is selective. It kills cancer cells without harming healthy non-cancerous cells nearby. 
An important word of caution, ginseng is sometimes processed with ethanol. This causes it to have similar properties of estrogen. High levels of estrogen can stimulate breast cancer. Be sure that the herbs and supplements you purchase are pure.
You may be familiar with lemongrass in tea or as a natural mosquito repellent. However, many people are unaware that citral – an extract of lemongrass – stimulates the process of apoptosis (cancer cell suicide) in laboratory tests. 
Aside from having a pleasant scent and forcing cancer cells to commit suicide, researchers have discovered that it also inhibits the development of tumors in the digestive tract, on the skin, colon, lung, and possibly even in the ovaries. 
In other words, citral causes cancer cells to self-destruct.
These are just three of many ways to prevent cancer naturally. Following an anti-cancer diet is one of the simplest, least expensive, and most effective ways you can stop the No. 2 killer in the world from claiming your life of the life of your loved one.
