This week is about an herb that everyone has some interest in. Bloodroot. I got some of this information on the website below. please read the entire website.
Ancient medicine grounded in good science
Historically, Blood Root was used by the Native Americans to heal many aliments such as stomach problems, respiratory issues and removal of superficial tumors and warts.
Established research in PubMed, science direct and Medline suggest that the alkaloids in Blood Root are good candidates as chemo-therapeutic regimes and successful immune therapies. In fact, positive effects have been shown in laboratory studies for prostate, breast, pancreatic plus many other types of cancer. How does Blood Root kill cancer cells? There are numerous studies that detail the effects of Sanguinarine and cellular reproduction. The bottom line is that it causes cancer cell apoptosis meaning that it causes cancer cells to die.
The beauty of Blood Root is that it does not harm healthy cells, but only kills the cancer cells. How wonderful is that??!!
But I must caution you that Blood Root by nature is an emetic and if not taken properly, can cause nausea and make you vomit.
DO NOT attempt to follow a regime of Blood Root on your own! - See more at: http://www.naturalhealth365.com/cancer_treatments/blood-root.html#sthash.0epvqLci.dpuf
