Three centuries of medicinal use and researches conducted by the University of Michigan have led to the possibility of killing ovarian and prostate cancer cells naturally. And all thanks to the use of ginger.
This root is truly among the greatest medicines worldwide. Ginger has been used for treating nausea and inflammation. The obtained results from the American Association for Cancer Research have shown that each time the ginger powder was used to treat cancer cells all of the cancer cells died because they were being exposed to the compound.
This occurrence in medical terms is known as apoptosis (cancer cell suicide). After the ginger is presented to the cancer cells, they often attack each other. This is called autophagy.
Ginger is considered to be very effective natural remedy for people who are undergoing chemotherapy. Ginger can be also used in bigger amounts to treat cancer of its own accord.
Another study has shown ginger’s effectiveness in fighting ovarian cancer concluded with:
“Ginger modulates and inhibits growth in secretion of angiogenic factors cells infected with ovarian cancer. The usage of dietary agents, such as ginger, might have potential in treating and preventing ovarian cancer. ”
Ginger’s abilities in treating prostate cancer have also been proved. A British magazine published results of ginger based study, conducted in America, in which ginger’s extract (zingiber officinale) saved a patient by killing all prostate cancer cells while the healthy ones were left alone. This ginger extract can shrink prostate tumor’s size by even 56%.
Let us add something else to ginger’s list of health benefits.
This spice contains no toxicity even when is consumed in larger amounts. Another benefit is that it doesn’t cause any negative side effects in people who are undergoing uncomfortable chemo and radiation treatments.
The American Cancer Society claims that more than 15% of men are going to be diagnosed with prostate cancer by the end of the next year. And when it comes to women, there will be more than 20,000 who will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer during the same period of time. Many of these future potential patients can be saved with the use of ginger root.
While Big Pharma will have these women and men go through very invasive treatments, some ginger root powder can act very helpful in causing the cancer cells to commit a certain death.
