Fight Cancer / Diseases With
Natural Foods & Sport

You Are What You Eat!
Fruits & Vegetables Boost
Body’s Immune System

(M. Javed Naseem)

The Best Medicinal Foods Are:
Olive oil, Ginger, Garlic, Onions,
Honey, Fish, Nuts, Tomato, Green
Leafy Veggies, Green/Black Tea,
Turmeric (Haldi), Black Pepper,
Citrus Fruits and season’s Fruits

Man happens to be hasty, careless and not disciplined enough to get along with Nature. He can’t even keep the positive balance in his own activities and food intake with the result that he gets sick. Then he starts looking for the cure for his ailments – a magic in the name of cure that works faster, and ends up using chemical products and medicines that can eventually harm his body’s defense system.

God created man and provided him with cures for all his ailments and diseases, very close to him, in his own area, with local fruits, vegetables, herbs and water. But being so selfish, unappreciative and ungrateful, man always looks on the other side to find those cures and treatments. He forgets the very basic and simple fact that ‘if you eat healthy, you’ll stay healthy’. Eating healthy implies that you pay good attention to your food’s qualitative and quantitative aspects. Keep the balance! Plus (never miss this) sport! Any sporting activity along with healthy diet is essential to keep a healthy body and a healthy mind too! If you are not a sportsman, they simply jog, run or walk. You should walk at least 5km everyday to stay healthy.

Herbs and spices not only lend our foods good taste and flavor but also control the harmful elements that can disturb the normal functioning of our system. There are many herbs, spices and foods that are considered as ‘medicinal’ and ‘preventive’. They can save us from minor colds or headache to the extreme diseases like cancers and ulcers. Your food is your life-saver. You are what you eat!
Healing occurs from the inside out. There are countless healthy foods available to the average modern consumer. Many of these foods—grown locally, eaten in-season, and loaded with nutrients—can help you prevent illness and maintain a healthy body weight, immune system, and more. Some can simply be life-saving medicinal foods.

Lemon Tea (Green/Black)
Green and black teas both contain antioxidants, which may prevent cancer and other diseases. For years research focused on the health properties of green tea. Recent studies indicate that black tea has benefits as well. As a matter of fact, the only difference you feel is the flavor and color, so it's all about personal preference.

“Specific compounds found in lemons (and
other citrus fruits such as grapefruit and
oranges) known as flavonoids and limonoids
may either stop the formation and growth of
cancer cells, or will kill them outright.”


Tea is a tiny little leaf that packs a big health punch. All tea leaves contain flavonoids which are naturally occurring phytochemicals that have antioxidant properties. Antioxidants prevent free radical damage in your body which is thought to be the cause of many chronic diseases. The health benefits associated with drinking tea are numerous. So far we know that regular tea consumption may lower your blood pressure and LDL cholesterol, which can reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. It may also reduce your risk of certain cancers (rectal, colon, skin) and is thought to aid in good oral and bone health. On top of all of that, it seems to support at healthy immune system and prevent neurological decline. To get all those benefits in one beverage is pretty amazing! Therefore, drink more tea (but not the Indo-Pak special ‘doodh-patti’ tea)! Use a tea-bag or one spoon loose-tea for one big cup/mug of hot boiling water with a slice of lemon in it for taste and nutrition! You can add sugar to your taste.

Lemon – The Miracle Fruit,
Contains 22 Anti-Cancer Compounds.
Lemon/Citrus Kills Cancer Cells.
It’s Said To Be ‘10,000 Times Stronger
Than Chemotherapy’!

Positive Findings:
Here is some latest information on the benefits of lemon to your health and its role in curing different ailments. Lemon is very cheap and easily available to the common man in all parts of the world.
The lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemon and lime. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. 

Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti-microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi; effective against internal parasites and worms; it regulates blood pressure and acts as an anti-depressant; combats stress and nervous disorders. Moreover: 
It is antibacterial
It is antiviral
It aids in digestion
It can be used to treat acne
It helps regulate blood pressure
It fights against parasites and worms
It possesses antidepressant qualities
It helps reduce stress and anxiety

How To Use Lemon:
Just cut 2-3 thin slices of lemon and put it in a cup/jug containing drinking water.  The water will become "alkaline water". Drink for the whole day, just by adding more water. Take it as drinking water everyday. It is good for health.

The Antidote
Ancient Egyptians believed that eating lemons
and drinking lemon juice was an effective protection
against a variety of poisons and the recent scientific
research has confirmed this belief.


Hope-4-Cancer adds:
Dr. Subrata Chakravarty is the Chief Science Officer and member of the Hope4Cancer Executive Team. He writes:
With an increase in reporting by major media outlets discussing the many health benefits of various fruits and vegetables and how they play a part in fighting disease, you may have already heard that lemons cure cancer. While this isn’t completely factual, there have been several studies that purport to show a strong basis in using lemons for cancer treatment. It should also be noted that there are conflicting reports detailing that, while lemons and other citrus fruits do contain cancer-fighting properties, exactly how effective they are against particular types of cancer, has yet to be accurately determined.

Health Benefits of Lemon for Cancer
In addition to the Vitamin C found in lemon juice, which is already a very well known alternative cancer treatment in its own right, the peel of the lemon also offers many health benefits, one of the most important being that lemon peel can help to eradicate toxins in your body. This may be why lemons for cancer are being studied and touted as a great remedy.
The connection between cancer and lemons isn’t something new; for decades, scientists have wondered, “Is lemon a cancer killer?” and have developed numerous studies to determine its validity.
Studies have revealed that lemon extract can successfully destroy malignant cells in a wide range of cancers, including breast cancer, colon cancer, and lung cancer. Several research studies also make the claim that lemons can destroy cancer much more effectively than chemotherapy, and in a safer and healthier manner. Additionally, the studies also show that lemon extract therapy only affects malignant cells, leaving healthy cells unharmed.

Lemon for Cancer:
How Much Do I Need to Consume?

So the question you may be asking yourself is, “Do lemons cure cancer and how much lemon do I need to consume on a daily basis?” Before answering this question, it must first be noted that while numerous studies have shown effectiveness in the consumption of lemons as a cancer killer, and is still undergoing a variety of testing and research to even come close to making that assertion.
What is known is that specific compounds found in lemons (and other citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruit) known as flavonoids and limonoids may either stop the formation and growth of cancer cells, or will kill them outright. These studies have mainly been conducted on animals and in laboratory conditions using human breast cancer cells.
In Europe, a study was conducted with participants afflicted with various forms of cancer, in which they consumed 150 grams of citrus four or more times a week. The citrus proved effective in decreasing the risks of cancer by significant percentages, with the exception being breast cancer. However, an American study did show a decrease in the risk of breast cancer in participants using the same portions of citrus—so long as they did not previously undergo hormone replacement therapy.
When consuming citrus, it is also important to not just consume the juice, but also the pulp and the peel, and even the seeds when possible. Further research shows that 75 grams of citrus on a daily basis might be the optimal minimum intake for those wishing to reduce the risks of cancer.

How to Add Lemons to Your Daily Diet
Because lemons are very versatile in a wide variety of dishes, it can be very easy to ensure that you have lemon in at least one of your meals each day. At the very least, you can add lemon juice to water and drink a glass of lemon water every day. This ensures that you get a good dose of Vitamin C. However, because the peel of the lemon actually contains a much larger amount of important vitamins than the juice, it is recommended that you find ways to incorporate the peel into your daily diet as well.
One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is to either peel a lemon and place the peel in the freezer, or simply freeze a whole lemon. Then you can grate as needed, adding it to salads, soups, fish, chicken, rice, pasta, and many other dishes. You can add it to seltzer, to smoothies and other drinks.

The Effective Antidote
By Theresa Cheung (From Belief-Net)

Did you know the Ancient Egyptians believed that eating lemons and drinking lemon juice was an effective protection against a variety of poisons, and that recent research has confirmed this belief?
There are many health benefits of lemons that have been known for centuries. The two biggest are lemons’ strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers and their use as a weight-loss aid because lemon juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser. Lemons contain many substances--notably citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene--that promote immunity and fight infection.
These are well-known health facts about lemons. But there’s so much more to this little yellow fruit. Here are 15 that I’ll bet you didn’t know. Whether you use them in the form of juice, teas, drinks, dressing, poultices or in the bath, take advantage of lemons’ natural healing power.

Medical Precautions:  
If you suffer from heartburn, kidney or gall bladder problems or have a citrus allergy consult your doctor before using these remedies or drinking lemon juice. To protect your teeth enamel, wait at least half an hour before brushing your teeth after chewing, drinking or rinsing with lemon juice. Rubbing lemon juice or oil and drinking lemon juice is not suitable for children under the age of 10. Lemons are effective home remedies for a variety of health concerns but in the case of serious illness always consult your doctor first.

Abolish Acne:
Lemon contains citric acid, which can be effective in treating acne. The vitamin C found in citrus fruits is vital for that healthy glowing skin while its alkaline nature kills some types of bacteria known to cause acne. In addition to drinking lemon juice with water first thing in the morning, here are some suggestions on how to prepare a homemade acne treatment using lemon:
o- With your finger or a cotton ball, apply fresh lemon juice on acne and leave it overnight. Wash with water the following morning. There may be an uncomfortable sensation of burning at first, but it will soon disappear.
o- Mix one part of freshly squeezed lemon juice with an equal part of rose or honey water. Put the mixture on affected areas for at least half an hour. Wash it afterwards with water. This application should be repeated twice daily, ideally in the morning and the evening.
Note: these remedies are safe and natural, but if acne is severe or there are open wounds, consult your doctor first.

Research has shown that lemon balm has a calming effect and therefore may be able to help remove fatigue, exhaustion, dizziness, anxiety, nervousness, and tension. It is also believed that inhaling lemon oil helps in increasing concentration and alertness. It can therefore be used as a room freshener in offices to increase the efficiency of the employees. If you’re feeling tense sprinkle a few drops of lemon balm essential oil
(Melissa officinalis) on a handkerchief to inhale.

Canker sore:
The proven antibacterial and antiviral properties of lemons can accelerate the healing process in the case of cankers. Mix the juice of freshly squeezed lemon into a glass of lukewarm water and rinse your mouth with this solution; do this three times a day. There may be a burning sensation when the lemon juice comes into contact with the canker, however, the more frequently you use it, the less burning there will be.

Chills and fevers may be due to a variety of causes, but the lemon is always a helpful remedy. Here is a method that can ease symptoms: add the juice of 1 lemon to a cup of hot water with honey and drink at once, then every 2 hours until the fever or chill subsides.

Cold & Flu:
When you have a cold, the healing power of lemons works both internally, by supplying urgently required vitamin C to your defense cells, and externally, through the application of its antiviral properties to the virus on the mucous membranes in the nose and throat.
At the first indication of a cold – a runny nose or sore throat –try to give your body as much immune-boosting vitamin C as you can so that the virus is eliminated before it gets a chance to take hold. Drink the freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon in a glass of lukewarm water every 2 hours.

Sore throat:
If you have a sore throat, add the juice of 1 lemon and 1 teaspoon (5ml) of sea salt to 1 cup (250ml) lukewarm water. Gargle three times a day for 1 minute to diminish the burning sensation. If it’s a case of tonsillitis, gargle every 2 hours for at least 30 seconds with the freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon. Tilt the head back to allow the antibacterial and antiviral properties of the juice to flow into the back of the throat. You can swallow the juice when you have finished gargling thereby benefiting from an immune-boosting vitamin C shot.

Corns & Calluses:
Lemon poultices applied overnight are a good home remedy for corns and calluses. Place a slice of lemon approx 5 mm thick on to the corn, bandage and fasten. Dabbing the affected area with lemon essential oil also helps accelerate the healing process. Take care to only use the undiluted oil on the callused area using a cotton ball or Q- tip, as it is too strong for un-callused skin.

If you suffer from skin infection such as eczema, a lemon wrap may offer relief. Add 8 drops of lemon essential oil to 1 cup (250ml) lukewarm water and 1 tablespoon (15ml) of liquid honey. Honey also has anti-inflammatory effect and strengthens the healing power of lemon.
Soak a linen cloth in the liquid, squeeze out the excess, and gently place the cloth on the affected area for 15 minutes, 2 to 3 times a day. Not only will this ease the infection, it will counter the overwhelming urge to scratch.

Long distance walkers, world travelers, and explorers look upon the lemon as a Godsend. When fatigue sets in, they might suck lemon juice by piercing the top of the fruit with a straw, giving themselves a quick-acting medicine and a lovely refreshment.
Explorers also use lemon for protection against many infections of the tropics. A small amount of lemon juice will quench thirst more effectively than many times the amount of water. Experienced travelers declare that when they add lemon juice to ordinary drinking water, in various localities, it acts as an antiseptic and prevents illness due to allergy to different water supplies.
Lemon oil also seems to be able to stimulate brain activity so whenever you feel tired for no reason or are finding it hard to focus or concentrate, add 4 drops of lemon oil to a water-filled aromatherapy lamp. Alternatively, drink a glass of lemon water every few hours.

Lemons can help freshen breath that has gone sour after consuming certain spices, alcohol, cigarettes, or that is caused by insufficient salivation. To keep breath fresh, thoroughly rinse your mouth several times a day with the freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon in a glass of lukewarm water. Chewing on a lemon slice after every meal will also help.

Garlic and onions have been shown to be effective in the fight against hypertension, and they combine well with the healing power of lemon. Add 3 crushed garlic cloves and 1 chopped onion to 1 quart or cold skimmed or low fat milk or soy milk. Slowly bring to the boil and let it stand for 5 minutes. Pour through a sieve and chill. Add the freshly squeezed juice of 3 lemons and sip throughout the day.
And if you suffer from high cholesterol, don’t forget that the pectin power in lemons along with its other metabolism and circulation boosting nutrients can help lower cholesterol.

Bug Bites:
If the stinger is still in the skin, take it out with a pair of tweezers. Massage 1 to 2 drops of lemon oil, mixed with 1 teaspoon of honey, into the skin around the bite.
To repel insects, add 20 drops of lemon oil to 1 cup (250ml) of water and spray into the air. It smells great and repels insects at the same time. Another home remedy is to place a cotton ball soaked in lemon oil in your bedroom. If you are sitting outside in the evening, apply lemon scent to skin areas not covered in clothing. Or, add 10 drops of lemon oil to 1 ½ oz of sunflower oil and rub into the skin.

Several studies have found that lemon balm combined with other calming herbs (such as valerian, hops, and chamomile) helps reduce anxiety and promote sleep. In a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 18 healthy volunteers received two separate single doses of a standardized lemon balm extract (300 mg and 600 mg) or placebo for 7 days. The 600 mg dose of lemon balm increased mood and significantly increased calmness and alertness.

Even though it tastes bitter, lemon juice has a powerful alkaline effect in the body and is therefore a natural agent against excess acid, which is in part responsible for rheumatism. Drink the freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon in a glass of lukewarm water 3 times a day and if you experience severe pain add the juice of 2 lemons 3 times a day.
Lemon oil has pain-relieving qualities, so to inhibit inflammation and ease pain, massage the affected area daily with several drops of lemon oil mixed with 1 tablespoon (15ml) jojoba oil.

Save Your Stomach:
Drink the juice of 1 freshly squeezed lemon in a glass of lukewarm water after each meal. The lemon acid will stimulate the production of stomach acid and the activity of stomach muscles.

Lemon oil has vessel-strengthening properties that can help fight varicose and spider veins. For spider veins, take 2 to 3 drops of lemon oil every day and mix in a small bowl with jojoba, avocado or almond oil and massage the affected area.
For varicose veins, add 6 drops of lemon oil to 1 ½ oz (50 ml) wheat germ oil, and 2 drops each of cypress and juniper oil. Use this mixture daily for a gentle massage of the legs from bottom to top, in the direction of the heart. For a vein and vessel-rejuvenating bath add 8 drops of lemon oil to a warm bath. Also add 4 drops of cypress oil blended with 1 tablespoon (15ml) of honey. Soak in the bath for 15 minutes and when you come out, pat your skin dry – don’t rub it.

Med-India adds:
Lemons are extremely popular fruits - it is beneficial when had as lemon water, or applied as skin tonic. Its flavor is delectable in desserts and sorbets and its zest is used for cakes and puddings. With summer setting in, beat the heat with cooling freshness of freshly made lemonade.
This citrus fruit is a rich source of vitamin C, minerals like calcium, phosphorus and magnesium and proteins and carbohydrates.

Lemon juice in a glass of warm water relieves nausea, heartburn and constipation. It works as tonic and helps the liver produce more bile, it acts as a blood purifier and clears out parasites. Lemon juice increases peristalsis in the bowels, creating bowel movement and alleviating constipation. A bout of hiccups can be relieved by drinking some lemon juice. It is also a diuretic, good for urinary tract infections – flushes out toxins and bacteria.

Lemon juice is great for sore throats and tonsillitis – gargle with warm water after adding a teaspoon of lemon juice to it. For coughs and colds add some honey and warm water and sip. Half a teaspoon of lemon juice with a cup of warm water- before meals is good for asthma.

Lemon juice is a blood purifier as it helps the body to remove toxins. It also has 22 anti cancer compounds; the limonene present in lemon juice slows the growth of cancerous tumors. After radiation and chemotherapy, it removes remnant traces of radiation and purifies the blood. It perks up the immune system and is good as an anti-depressant.

Lemon juice gently massaged on bleeding gums effectively stops bleeding. And also deals with bad breath.

Lemon juice applied on the face for pimples and black heads is a very popular remedy. It can be mixed with some glycerin and used to clear wrinkles and age spots.

Apply lemon juice on oily and greasy oil for shine and luster.

Add lemon juice to vinegar – 1tablespoon in 1 cup – wash fruits and vegetables with this it helps remove traces of pesticides.

Lemons have a high citric acid content that may irritate your stomach, particularly if you have an ulcer. This acid, even if diluted in water, can damage tooth enamel if consumed in large quantities.

22 Anti-Cancer Compounds In Lemon
By Blanche Levine (From: Natural-Health 365)

Lemons peels have an enormous amount of health benefits, including the ability to boost your immune system; lower cholesterol and, even, help to prevent cancer. Often overlooked, lemon peels offer anti-microbial protection against bacterial (and fungal) infections – helping the body to eliminate internal parasites and worms.
Does your conventional oncologist understand nutrition?
Scientists reveal that phyto-nutrients, found in nature, can outperform chemotherapy without the risk of harming the body. We know lemon peels have some compounds that trigger the immune system and have demonstrated its substances can mitigate certain ailments.
For example, modified citrus pectin (MCP) which comes from the pulp and rinds of citrus fruits has been altered to produce shorter sugar chains – making it more easily absorbed by the digestive system and bloodstream. MCP has been found to inhibit the spread of prostate, breast, and skin cancer to other organs.
Why do citrus fruits have so many health benefits?
Limonoids are chemicals, which are found in citrus peels and are responsible for the bitter taste. Limonoids are capable of slowing cancer cell growth and inducing apoptosis (cell suicide). This research was conducted in labs, which have shown that it worked in vitro and on animals.

Lemons contain 22 anti-cancer compounds, including limonene, citrus pectin and flavonol glycosides – which stop cell division in cancer cells.
According to The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) of Australia, citrus fruits pack a powerful punch – reducing the risk of some cancers by 50 percent. These scientists report that citrus fruits are most protective against stomach, mouth, larynx and pharynx cancers.
Whole food nutrition is great for beauty and natural healing. 
Consuming the entire lemon offers the best results. Most of the plant world contains life-giving substances within the skin, seeds, and pulp. In Ayurvedic medicine, lemon peels are used to detoxify the liver. They also stimulate the appetite by encouraging the release of gastric juices, and contain limonene and at least 45 antioxidant flavonoids, pectin and vitamin C – all known for preventing and reversing cancer.

Natural-News adds:
A new study has shown for the first time how limonoids, natural compounds present in lemons and other citrus fruit, impede both ER+ and ER- breast cancer cell growth. This sheds new light on the importance of citrus fruit for breast cancer prevention and supports past studies which showed fruit consumption may lower breast cancer risk.
Limonoids show cytotoxic and anti-aromatase effects:
For this study, 14 kilograms of dried lemon seeds were powdered and defatted. Nine different limonoids were extracted from the seeds. Seven showed significant cytotoxicity against ER+ breast cancer cells, while four showed cytotoxicity against ER- cells (decreasing growth/viability by as much as 44 percent). Each limonoid was also tested for its ability to induce programmed cell death of the cancer cells (via caspase-7 activation), and one of the most potent was found to be limonin glucoside - which is by far the most abundant limonoid in citrus juices.

The limonoids were also tested for their ability to inhibit aromatase, which is key in limiting the estrogen that ER+ cells can use for growth. All but one of the limonoids proved to be natural aromatase inhibitors, and again, limonin glucoside was at the forefront as the most potent of them all. Thus, limonoids are not only directly toxic to both ER+ and ER- breast cancer cells, but they also work to deprive ER+ cells of the estrogen needed for growth.

Preventing breast cancer is not the only reason to consume citrus limonoids, though. In the lab, limonoids have shown cytotoxicity to colon cancer, pancreatic cancer, liver cancer, neuroblastoma, leukemia, and others. This opens an important question: How much citrus fruit must we consume for meaningful protection from cancer?
Citrus fruit for cancer prevention:
How much is needed?
A recent case-control study out of Europe showed that consuming four or more 150-gram portions per week of citrus fruit decreased the risks of throat cancer by 58 percent, oral/pharyngeal cancer by 53 percent, stomach cancer by 31 percent, and colorectal cancer by 18 percent. This study did not find a protective effect of citrus against breast cancer, but a recent American study did show that women consuming about 75 grams daily of grapefruit (fruit or juice) saw a 22 percent reduction in breast cancer risk if they had never used hormone replacement therapy. It is noteworthy that the protective level of citrus consumption was nearly identical in both these studies (525-600 grams per week) and could be interpreted as a minimum intake level for meaningful cancer protection. However, it's also important to know the best sources of limonoids if they are key to citrus fruit's anti-cancer properties.

Sources of citrus limonoids - Oranges are best!
While the limonoids in the latest study above were taken from lemon seeds, they are also found in the peel, pulp and juice of all citrus fruits. Citrus juices contain approximately 90 to 300 mg per liter of limonoid glucosides (orange juice: 300 mg/l, grapefruit juice: 200 mg/l, lemon or lime juice: 90 mg/l). Citrus pulp and peel contain up to 500mg/kg of limonoids, so if you freshly squeeze your juice, be sure to include as much pulp as possible. Citrus seeds can contain up to two percent by weight of limonoids, with grapefruit seeds being the richest source.

Taken together, these recent studies suggest that women wanting to reduce breast cancer risk should consume at least 75 grams daily of citrus fruit or juice as part of a well-balanced, healthy lifestyle, and that further benefit may be obtained by concentrating on limonoid-rich orange and grapefruit as whole fruit, or pulp-rich juices.

So which foods pack the most medicinal punch? Which are tops when it comes to healing disease and illness? You have likely heard of them before, here are the top choices:

Top Medicinal Foods
By Christina Sarich (From Natural Society)

Used throughout the ages for its healing properties, like many other foods, ginger has been linked to:
cancer prevention,
anti-inflammatory benefits,
sore throat, and
upset stomach relief, and more.
Perhaps the simplest and quickest way ginger can provide healing benefits is in the treatment of stomach distress including nausea, heartburn, and bloating. The root is easy to incorporate into your cooking, too.
In one study, Suzanna M. Zick, N.D., M.P.H, enrolled 30 patients and randomly assigned them to two grams of ginger root supplements per day or placebo for 28 days. She had astoundingly positive results. Zick commented that:
“We need to apply the same rigor to the sorts of questions about the effect of ginger root that we apply to other clinical trial research. Interest in this is only going to increase as people look for ways to prevent CANCER that are nontoxic, and improve their quality of life in a cost-effective way.”
Ginger has also destroyed ovarian and prostate cancer in other studies.

Garlic is an immune-boosting powerhouse that is widely used in kitchens around the world. Like ginger, studies have linked the root to anti-cancer benefits. Garlic’s anti-cancer powers are so widely accepted that even the National Cancer Institute (generally only aligning with “conventional” cancer treatments) said, “preliminary studies suggest that garlic consumption may reduce the risk of developing several types of cancer, especially cancers of the gastrointestinal tract.”
Garlic is also a powerful antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal agent.

Green Tea
Like garlic and ginger, green tea also has anti-cancer benefits. Additionally, green tea could speed up weight loss, boost heart health, and prevent diabetes as well.
Manuka Honey
Honey derived from bees who feast on the nectar and pollen of manuka flowers has been found to have prolific antibacterial benefits—even working against antibacterial-resistant infections like MRSA. This magical elixir is also able to heal wounds and potentially fight heart disease.

Turmeric (Haldi)
Gaining popularity in the West due in part to its medicinal benefits, turmeric is most often seen in middle-eastern cuisines and folk medicine. It’s tied to blood sugar management, cancer prevention,  oral health, and even treating depression.

These foods pack some of the most healing benefits of any foods in the world, and they are all widely available. You can find several of them at your local grocery store, health food store, or online. Some of them you may even feel like growing yourself. But no matter how you get them, it’s important you research the benefits of these foods and make them a part of your life.
