Herbal Medicine: The Potential of Natural Remedy
Herbal Medicine, also known as Botanical Medicine in cancer treatment, involves using plants and plant extracts which are proven to be effective in stimulating a certain type of reaction in cancer cells. Cancer cells can adapt and become resistant to many treatments and drugs, which is what makes herbal therapy so progressive. The focus with Herbal Cancer Therapy is to bolster the body’s defenses and/or attack cancer cells by modifying the patient’s regimen. They activate specific responses to certain types of cancer activity, such as blocking the metabolic process in tumour cells
Herbal Medicine is derived from different parts of plants (e.g. leaves, flowers, or roots). Herbs have various purposes and each will produce different results according to their benefits. Moreover, each part of the plant also has several medicinal values and requires a different method of extraction. It is a holistic approach to treat illnesses by focusing on the underlying cause of the disease, rather than just the symptoms.
At Verita Life, the use of Herbal Medicine is actively recommended as an anticancer enhancement that allows progressive improvements within the Integrative Cancer Treatment Programme.
In combination with other treatments such as Insulin Potential Therapy (IPT) and Local Body Hyperthermia therapy, your body’s immune response becomes supercharged and can significantly deter cancer growth as well as facilitate its destruction.
Our herbal treatment protocols have been assessed and implemented by Dr. Adem Günes. Following years of research, he developed specific protocols to address varying types of tumours. We use proven compounds that stem from all natural herbal ingredients such as curcumin, quercetin and other anti-cancer therapies. These are complemented by a host of other powerful boosters, immune activators and herbal super-drugs that can suppress tumour growth. Our Treatment Protocol is in line with our values to provide an Integrative Cancer Treatment that treats the body to attack the cancer from as many directions as possible, whilst boosting the overall immune system as a whole. Some of the Herbal Medicine Verita Life administers include:
Curcumin is an active ingredient found in turmeric, which is a bright orange and brown colored spice, whose medicinal use in Asia dates back thousands of years ago. Whilst turmeric is best known for its culinary benefits, it has several important roles in Ayurvedic medicine, including a cleanser of the body, a bacteria-killer in the stomach, an alternative solution to treating conditions such as toothache, chest pain, urinary tract infection, and others.
As a Herbal Medicine, studies have shown that Curcumin helps in preventing several forms of cancer including breast, lung, stomach, liver, and colon due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Curcumin can also help in suppressing tumour initiation, promotion and metastasis. Moreover, Curcumin is shown to make Chemotherapy more effective, as well as protect healthy cells from damage caused by Radiation Therapy.
However, in reality, a single curry meal delivers very small amount of active Curcumin, so it needs to be supplemented. To match the aggressive growth of cancer, prompt action with large dosage is vital. Since the gut has limitations with absorbing such high dosage of Curcumin, at Verita Life it is advised to administer curcumin via IV at a safe dosage and under a close supervision of a specialist.
Quercetin is a flavonoid, or a plant pigment, that gives fruits and vegetables the component of orange and red colours. Some of the foods that contains significant portions of quercetin include red wine, capers, onions, apples, berries, cranberries, sweet potatoes, broccoli, and more.
The benefits of Quercetin alone solidifies the ground for Herbal Therapy significantly. It is a unique antioxidant with a wide range of research and practice on its medicinal benefits, most important of which include its cancer-fighting properties. Quercetin has proven to be a therapeutic agent for different types of cancer, including Lung Cancer, Breast Cancer, Colon Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Endometrial Cancer, and more.
Quercetin has the ability to reverse the development of cancer cells, as well as protect cellular DNA of healthy cells from potential mutations. Not only that, quercetin can also help with alleviating some of the unwanted side effects from chemotherapy and radiation. To increase the rate of its absorption into the bloodstream, quercetin is administered via IV under a close supervision of a doctor.
Some of the common adverse effects of Chemotherapy is loss of appetite and nutrients; so as a result, the patient may suffer from weight loss and at extreme levels, malnutrition. Moringa could help fight that. Moringa leaves consist of all the essential amino acids which could enhance the immune system.
Moreover, moringa leaves have also been found to contain amino acids, which are important in helping those who are undergoing Chemotherapy. Interestingly, the National Institute of Nutrition found that a handful of moringa leaves contains as much as three times more potassium than bananas four times the amount of calcium as one glass of milk. It is also widely popular for being abundant in iron, calcium and protein as well as with high antioxidant levels like Vitamins A, B and C; these could aid in terms of offsetting side effects in cancer therapy. They also decrease the current cancer process.
