Herbal Treatment Of Cancer: A Cautionary Note
medicine has been touted as an alternative to our modern medicine. However,
although there are many claims that traditional herbs and medicinal plants can
cure cancer; there are still no reliable records show of consistency success
that, there are many lookalike species when applied wrongly may yield quite different
results: for example Justicia Betonica (white shrimp plant) and Adhatoda
Ventricosa (大駁骨), Hedyotis Diffusa Willd (白花蛇舌草) and
Hedyotis Corymbosa Lamk. (水線草) etc.
It is a
matter of fact that through some clinical studies, herbs and medicinal plants
are effective in curing certain illnesses. But there is still no solid evidence
shows these herbs and plants can cure cancers clinically.
So it is
advisable for anyone who wants to take advantage of these medicinal plants for
daily consumption or for treating cancers to exercise caution. Otherwise not
only the original illness cannot be cured, other health issues may entail.
cancer in the perspective of folk medicine:
sleep, too much rich food, no exercises, too much supper, smoke and drink etc.
issues (and Feng Shui too!)
near a cement plant, sawmill, rock quarry etc.
who like to keep things to themselves or people who have tendencies to have
mood swing etc.
food and drinks
much oily or barbecued food, alcohol, soft drinks, cigarettes, processed food,
and spiritual issues
can also cause cancers. Old folks believe that spirits can mask out the
detection of cancers during diagnostic stage.
of cancer (just a suggestion):
medicine according to your doctor’s advice; but reduce the intake when one feels
well and okay. (We don’t want to kill all the good cells in our body)
to a healthier and cleaner place.
a life style: remember that it is precisely the current life style that has
cause the cancer; so, drop everything and start a new life in another way.
personal behaviors: go out to the nature for a walk, meet more people, be more
open, exercise more etc.
consuming meat and processed food stuffs, alcohols, cigarettes etc.
praying, magical and religious ceremonies help too!
So, what are
herbs and medicinal plants good for?
one thing; each type of herbs can cure specific discomfort. For example, if
throat cancer patient finds difficulty to talk due to sore throat; certain
herbs can reduce this patient’s pain considerably in a reasonably short time.
With his or her pain relieved, this patient can continue to consume food and
hence restoring health.
