-The paleo and ancestral people -Chris Kresser, Rob Wolf, Matt Lalonde and Jimmy Moore don't focus on the important things.

-We get too much blue light.

-We need more DHA if we get less sun.

INFLAMMATION - How to lessen the inflammation in your body

5 Giant Causes of Inflammation in your Body



Fibromyalgia - Simple recipe reduces pain

Recipe #1      https://paleospirit.com/how-to-make-brown-beef-bone-stock/


Recipe #2                                                                                                                    

Makes: 4 quarts

5 to 8 pounds beef or other bones (see note)

1 tablespoon sea salt

½ cup olive oil

2 quarts mirepoix (a mixture of chopped onions, carrots and celery. I like leek tops, too!)

½ cup tomato paste

1 cup red wine for French stock

1 gallon cold water

Bouquet garni (fresh bay leaves, thyme, peppercorns, juniper berries, parsley and rosemary, gathered in tied cheesecloth or a cloth bag)

Star anise, cinnamon sticks and cloves (for stock for Vietnamese pho)

1 cup white wine (for stock for Vietnamese pho)

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large roasting pan, lightly coat the bones with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt.

Roast for about 35 minutes.

Remove bones to a tray. Add the mirepoix and tomato paste to the fat in the roasting pan, stirring to coat the vegetables. Place in the oven and cook until brown.

Remove from oven and place roasting pan on top of stove over medium heat and deglaze with wine, scraping up any bits at the bottom.

Place the bones in a large stockpot, and add cold water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to maintain a simmer for 2 to 3 hours, skimming impurities periodically.

Add browned mirepoix and bouquet garni.

Continue to simmer for an additional 2 to 3 hours, or longer if desired.

Turn off the heat, and let the broth rest for an hour or two. Filter broth through a fine- meshed sieve or a chinoise, and bottle in jars. Refrigerate.

The fat will rise to the top and harden, and the broth should set up like gelatin. Remove the fat, and the stock is ready to use.

____

Notes: Local grocery stores and butcher shops offer soup bones. Also, the broth can be refrigerated for up to a week, or frozen up to a year.

To make a demi-glace, bring this rich broth to a simmer and reduce by half.

To make a less potent broth, you can add more water to the same bones and mirepoix; repeat above method.

Herbs & Oils That Kill Cancer Cells - But Do Not Kill Healthy Cells


Frankincense

Frankincense may well be my number one favorite essential oil for its anti-cancer properties. It is anti-inflammatory, for one, which is vital in the quest to heal from all cancers. Specifically, frankincense has been shown to be a potent inhibitor of 5-lipoxygenase, an enzyme responsible for inflammation in the body.

Frankincense essential oil also helps boost immune function and prevent illness by dangerous pathogens by multiplying white blood cells and modulating immune reactions.

It also helps improve circulation, and reduce stress (it has sedative properties), as well as being a known pain reliever. Oil of frankincense has been shown to contract and tone tissues, which helps to speed regeneration.

Frankincense is also shown to provide neurological support, including the ability to destroy toxins that may lead to neurological damage.

However, this essential oil has several benefits beyond cancer treatment, including easing arthritis pain, balancing hormones, encouraging skin health, and aiding digestion.

Lavender

As we’ve written elsewhere on The Truth About Cancer site, lavender essential oil contains the phytochemicals perillyl alcohol and linalool, both found to support cancer healing. Not only is lavender a known pain reliever, true lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is anti-tumoral, and has demonstrated significant results in resetting the programmed cell death usually lacking in cancer cells. It has been observed to reduce the weight of tumors, and inhibit cell growth.

Lavender essential oil reduces stress and supports the function of the immune system. Quality of sleep is improved. Depression and anxiety are relieved. All of these go towards supporting the immune system in the often immunocompromised cancer patient. Yet lavender oil has several direct anti-bacterial properties, as well.

Studies have shown lavender essential oil to be effective against many common germs, as well as the more serious ones such as Staphylococcus aureus (“golden staph”). It does so by supporting the macrophages and phagocytes systems in the body, as well as helping the body fight the infection through its influence on genetic activity.

Peppermint

Peppermint is another “wonder-oil,” with a wide range of benefits. This essential oil’s cancer benefits come from its phytochemicals limonene, phytochemicals beta-caryophyllene, and beta-pinene, which have defined cytotoxic and anti-inflammatory effects.

Studies have also shown peppermint essential oil to reveal antioxidant and cancer inhibiting properties, suppressing growth of tumors. In addition, peppermint oil contains antiangiogenic properties, which prevent tumors from developing their own blood supply.

Peppermint essential oil is a well-known antiseptic, with antimicrobial components that benefit respiratory infections (such as bronchitis), open wounds, tonsillitis, and laryngitis. Peppermint is so powerful it’s even useful against stronger bacterias such as Staphylococcus aureus and others that are often antibiotic resistant.

Turmeric (Curcumin)

In labs, curcumin has been found to inhibit enzymes such as COX-2 that cause inflammation which can lead to cancer, to activate a gene that suppresses tumors, cut cancer cells off from their fuel and oxygen sources, to kill large B-cell lymphoma cells, prevent cancer stem cells from regrowing, and stop the spread of cancer (metastasis).

Turmeric essential oil has been shown in studies to differentiate between normal and cancerous cells, while promoting apoptosis (cancer cell death).

This power-house oil has other benefits as well, including: helping to regulate blood sugar, help wounds heal faster, prevent Alzheimer’s disease, prevent help you lose weight, and ease arthritis.




ROYAL WHIPPED BODY BUTTER

Ingredients:

1 Cup Organic Coconut Oil (Solid, not liquid)

4-8 drops Fankincense + 4-8 Drops Myrrh + 2-4 Drops Turmeric Essential Oils


Directions:

1.  Place coconut oil in mixing bowl.  Add 5-10 drops of essential oils to start.  Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer, start whipping the coconut oil/essential oils combination on low speed until combined.

2.  Place a small amount on the back of your hand to test for fragrance intensity.  Add more drops if desired (more recommended if using for therapeutic purposes).

3.  Continue mixing on increasingly higher speeds until the body butter reaches the consistency of whipped cream or a very light frosting (can take up to 10 minutes if the oil was very hard to begin with).

4.  Use a clean spoon to scoop the body butter into clean jars and cover with a lid.

USE & PRECAUTIONS:

Store extra jars in a cool dark cupboard.  The body butter should keep well for at least a couple of months.  However, if you see any signs of spoilage, please discard immediately.

Before first use, do a test on the inside of wrist or forearm and watch for any signs of a reaction.  If all is well, use as you would any body lotion or body butter.

Body butter may seem a bit greasy when you first apply it, but the oils will soak into your skin quickly.




Frankincense Oil DIY Recipes

Frankincense oil blends well with carrier oils like jojoba oil, coconut oil or shea butter. It can be combined with other essential oils depending on the benefits you’re seeking. For example, it blends well with citrus oils (such as lemon and frankincense oils) as a “pick-me-up”; meanwhile, lavender and frankincense oils blend well and work as a relaxant. This makes it a versatile and popular oil that lends itself well to many combinations and practical uses. Try one of these recipes to start experiencing the benefits of frankincense oil:

Scar Reducing Body Butter

Total Time: 5 minutes

Serves: 4

INGREDIENTS:

2 oounces shea butter or coconut oil

10 drops of jasmine oil

10 drops frankincense oil

Small container or jar to mix the ingredients

DIRECTIONS:

In a double boiler, melt the shea butter until it’s liquid.

Make sure the oil is not so hot that it will burn you, then add the other oils and stir together to combine. Having the shea butter be room temperature or a little warmer is best.

You can either smear it on your scar right away, or if you’d like to make it into a shelf-stable cream texture, place the mixture in the fridge until it’s cool for a few minutes, then use a hand mixer on high speed to whip the oils into a white cream.

Pour into a glass jar or containers, and keep it at room temperature to use whenever you want.

Sleep-Inducing Facial Cream or Body Rub

Total Time: 5 minutes

Serves: 1

This all-natural night cream is great to help you fall asleep. It also doubles as a skin health-booster if you apply it to your face and may be able to help clear up blemishes or breakouts.

INGREDIENTS:

5 drops frankincense essential oil

5 drops lavender essential oil

1/4 tablespoon organic coconut oil

1/2 teaspoon olive oil

Small container or jar to mix the ingredients

DIRECTIONS:

Use coconut oil that’s not solid but rather soft. If need be, heat it first in a double broiler.

Add the other oils and stir together to combine. Spread over your face and body. You may want to pat yourself off after to not allow the oil to seep into your bed sheets. You can also store this to use at another time.

Here are a couple of more frankincense recipes to try:

Homemade Frankincense Soap Bar

Homemade Frankincense and Myrrh Lotion

Frankincense Oil Side Effects

For oil safety concerns, you should know that frankincense essential oil is extremely well-tolerated, especially compared to prescription medications. To date, there are no reported serious side effects of using frankincense oil. However, it’s always a good idea to follow essential oil safety and ingest just a few drops of any essential oil at a time in water or other beverage.

Rarely frankincense oil can cause certain reactions for some people, including minor skin rashes and digestive problems like nausea or stomach pains. Frankincense is also known to have blood-thinning effects, so anyone who has problems related to blood clotting should not use frankincense oil or should speak with a doctor first. Otherwise, the oil may have potential to negatively react with certain anticoagulant medications.

Final Thoughts on Frankincense Oil

Frankincense, in the genus Boswellia and from the Boswellia sacra tree and sometimes referred to as olibanum, is a common type of essential oil used in aromatherapy that can offer a variety of health benefits, including helping relieve chronic stress and anxiety, reducing pain and inflammation, boosting immunity and even potentially helping to fight cancer.

Frankincense oil uses include stress-relieving bath soak; natural household cleaner; natural hygiene product; anti-aging and wrinkle fighter; relieving the symptoms of indigestion; scar, wound, stretch mark or acne remedy; natural cold or flu medicine; and relieving inflammation and pain.

With oil safety concerns low, it’s a versatile oil that can be combined with several other essential oils and carrier oils that are not known to create any adverse side effects.




5 Tips for Using Essential Oils for Heath & Healing

Using essential oils is so integral to my family’s life, it’s hard to list every way we use them! However, here are some top tips for using essential oils in your daily life. [Be sure to check my list of precautions below to get the most from your oils.]

Put a drop behind your ears. For example, every day my wife Charlene uses myrrh and frankincense behind her ears and on her lymph nodes as a prophylactic (preventative protection). Lavender or peppermint would be good for respiratory issues, or simply to relax. You can rub on the back of the skull, the breasts, or the bottoms of your feet.

Use a cold diffuser. We love to diffuse essential oils throughout our home. We do it for added mental clarity, and immune support for the entire family. My office is always filled with the therapeutic aromas of a variety of essential oils.

Massage into the skin. Some essential oils, like peppermint and clove, are very strong and you’ll do well to choose a good “carrier oil.” You use a good quality, organic (preferably cold-pressed) oil like coconut, olive, or jojoba to mix in a few drops of the essential oil of your choice. You can then massage this simple “body butter” onto your skin. For a bit fancier body butter, use a mixer to whip solid coconut oil with essential oil. Use this mixture to apply directly to affected areas (such as with pain, arthritis, or digestive issues), and for quick absorption and overall health benefits.

Ingest Internally. One of my favorite, refreshing drinks I like to make is a “Peppermint Lemonade.” I simply take 5-10 drops of peppermint essential oil, about a dozen drops of lemon (or orange or tangerine oils, depending on my mood), add water, some organic green stevia, and ice in a large pitcher. It’s a super-fast, healthy beverage that I love. It’s also delicious as a hot beverage (use hot water and omit the ice). If you’re just making one cup at a time, use only 1 drop of peppermint + 1 drop of a citrus oil. Essential oils are powerful and a little goes a long way! You can also use a few drops of essential oils in an empty gel capsule and swallow it.

Toothpaste. You can make a variety of personal products using organic essential oils and other non-toxic ingredients: lotions, face washes, mouthwash, soaps. A toothpaste is easy to make using high quality, certified organic frankincense, myrrh, and coconut oil. Maybe add in some baking soda if you prefer, too.

Precautions for Using Essential Oils:

Quality. This is so important that it bears repeating. Always use a top-quality, medicinal grade oil. It should be certified organic, and 100% pure. Check the reputation of your supplier, and ensure there are no fillers or additives.

Keep oils away from sensitive areas. Essential oils are nature’s powerhouses. Keep in mind they are 40-50 times more potent than the plant itself. Some oils are more “spicy” than others. Some taste better than others. Oregano is one that can burn a bit when you ingest it directly. Peppermint requires caution, and usually does best with a carrier oil when applying to the skin. Never apply essential oils to sensitive areas of the body, including the genitals or near your eyes.You should also test new oils to ensure there are no reactions before applying too liberally. You can start by doing a sniff test of the oil in the bottle. If that seems fine, then apply a dab of carrier oil to the inside of your wrist or arm, add a drop of oil and wait to see if there is any redness, itching, or swelling. Everybody and every body is different so you may need to try different oils to see which ones feel best to you.

Do not heat oils. You’ve probably seen or even have one of those oil burners for using essential oils. What you may not know is that heating these oils destroys their healing properties. It’s always best to use a cold diffuser. These are plentiful and economically priced online.

Children. Always be cautious when using essential oils with children. Diffusion is safest. For direct application, it’s important to dilute the stronger oils, especially with a good carrier oil. When making body butters or massage oils for children, use 1 drop of essential oil to 4 tablespoons of carrier oil. This will dilute the essential oil enough to make it more tolerable and safer for your child. Be very careful not to place near the eyes and always do a sensitivity test first.

ESSENTIAL OILS FOR CANCER RESEARCH

The truth about essential oils for cancer is four-fold.

First – essential oils for cancer research suggests that oils can help prevent and treat cancer at the cellular level. Additionally, and oftentimes overlooked, essential oils have been shown to be exceptionally effective at managing the side effects related to cancer itself and the side effects people suffer at the hands of medical interventions.

Second – it is critical to recognize that this is not an all-or-nothing approach. Just because you’re taking chemo doesn’t mean that you can’t use essential oils for cancer. The same is true on the flip side of that coin. Far too many patients and healthcare practitioners dichotomize natural from allopathic therapies, and do not give enough emphasis on the practicality of using both together.

Third – we need to put things into proper perspective and remember that the peer-reviewed articles we have that evaluate the ability of essential oils for cancer to prevent, stop and even reverse the growth of various malignant lines are in vitro. In other words, we don’t many live human trials with hundreds or thousands of participants, we have studies that are testing human cells in a petri dish. This is not to say that these studies are useless. The point we need to take from this is that essential oils for cancer is still experimental

Fourth – with this said, there are literally thousands upon thousands of testimonials of people on the Internet claiming that essential oils for cancer cured them. And this cannot be disputed because a vast majority of them are your normal, not-trying-to-make-a-buck kind of people who are not trying to sell a product. These are legitimate medical “miracles,” which are ultimately going to be the basis for further research.

BEST ESSENTIAL OILS FOR CANCER PATIENTS

Of all of the studies in the medical literature, this is just a sample of those that suggest essential oils for cancer therapy can benefit patients.

CITRUS OILS

The most prominent and noteworthy component of citrus oils is d-limonene, confirmed to be a potent cancer-fighting agent. In the words of the U.S. National Library of Medicine’s open chemisry database, PubChem,

“D-Limonene is an oral dietary supplement containing a natural cyclic monoterpene and major component of the oil extracted from citrus peels with potential chemopreventive and antitumor activities. Although the mechanism of action has yet to be fully elucidated, limonene and its metabolites perillic acid, dihydroperillic acid, uroterpenol and limonene 1,2-diol may inhibit tumor growth through inhibition of p21-dependent signaling and may induce apoptosis via the induction of the transforming growth factor beta-signaling pathway. In addition, they inhibit post-translational modification of signal transduction proteins, resulting in G1 cell cycle arrest as well as differential expression of cell cycle- and apoptosis-related genes.”

CLARY SAGE

Sclareol, a constituent of clary sage essential oil, has promising anti-cancer effects in laboratory evaluations. During studies dating back to 1999 to just last year, it has been shown to impact the way that cancer cells proliferate by literally killing through a process known as apoptosis. (1, 2)

Apoptosis is interesting because it literally triggers the cell to commit “suicide,” more formally known as programmed cell death, which suggests that clary sage oil could have profound effects on the prevention and treatment of cancer lines.

Sclareol, has shown some promising things in lab tests. Over the last couple of decades but as recently as this year (2015), studies have emerged that analyze sclareol’s effect on cancer cells. With the caveat that these benefits occurred within the confines of lab cultures and dose adjustments, sclareol may have an impact on the way that cancer cells proliferate, and they could help to induce apoptosis (cancer cell death).

While this does not tell us how much potential sclareol has to directly treat cancer – and it’s exciting to think about where that could go one day! – it is a common thread that we see in many antioxidant-rich essential oils. This is especially interesting for clary sage, because some claim that it is “estrogenic” due to the sclareol content and should be avoided by estrogen-dominent cancer patients.

This, of course, is a myth and essential oil safety expert Robert Tisserand puts it this way:

“Sclareol does have an interesting anticancer activity, including in vitro action against human breast cancer MCF-7 cells (Dimas et al 2006). An isomer, 13-epi-sclareol, which is also present in clary sage oil, inhibits the growth of breast and uterine cancers in vitro, and was slightly more potent than Tamoxifen, but was not toxic to normal cells (Sashidhara et al 2007). This suggests the possibility that sclareol might actually inhibit estrogen, and might after all have some capacity to interact with estrogen receptor sites. What we do know is that sclareol will not give you breast cancer.” (3)

FRANKINCENSE

Of all the cancer-fighting essential oils, frankincense (Boswellia sacra, B. carterii, B. frereana, and B. serrata) is the most controversial. The research out there has been scrutinized because of its industry-bias, and some claim that there are no chemical compounds in frankincense oil that can kill cancer. With that said, just do a search on the Internet and healing stories abound. It is hard to dispute with the thousands of people who state their cancer was cured after using frankincense.

The biggest issue some chemists and Aromatherapists have is regarding boswellic acids (BAs), which have been proven to be “cytotoxic to ovarian cancer cells at pharmacologically achievable concentrations” and “may form the basis of a novel anticancer treatment for ovarian cancer, perhaps alongside conventional chemotherapy.” (4) A known compound in frankincense resin, the issue is that boswellic acids are too large and heavy to be included in the volatile (evaporated) components that make up essential oils.

In other words, BA’s are not in the essential oils, but who cares? Studies continue to emerge demonstrating the anti-cancer effects of frankincense essential oil on bladder (5), breast (6) and skin (7) cancers!

HOW ARE PEOPLE USING FRANKINCENSE ESSENTIAL OIL FOR CANCER SUPPORT?

Additionally, adding frankincense essential oil for cancer to a healthcare protocol goes well beyond the anti-tumor effects. For people utilizing conventional medical treatments, the pain and other side effects can be worse than the cancer itself!

This is especially true for brain cancer patients who oftentimes experience cerebral edema (swelling in the head) after their tumors have been surgically removed or at the hands of radiation therapy. To make matters worse, steroid treatment is commonly administered, complicate the side effects even more.

Frankincense extract, which contains some essential oil, can possibly help this particular problem. A clinical trial published in 2011 evaluated 44 patients with cerebral edema and, after taking 4200 mg/day of a Boswellia serrata (BS) extract was administered, the swelling was reduced by 75% or more in 60% of the participants. The researchers conclude that, “BS could potentially be steroid-sparing for patients receiving brain irradiation. (8)

Essential oils for cancer have also shown to help manage depression, pain and boost the immune system. (9, 10)

The Truth about essential oils for cancer and what the research says!

LAVENDER

A popular theme in the natural health discussion is that antioxidants are the super healers that we all need. Free radicals created by chemicals, pollutants, stress and toxins are the culprits for a cascade of cellular damage, immune inhibition, and limitless unforeseen health risks – including cancer and chronic illness.

Suffice it to say that, if free radicals are the super villains, antioxidants are the super heroes.

The body itself creates antioxidants in the form of the enzymes catalase (CAT), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), and superoxide dismutase (SOD) among others. Unfortunately, our bodies are exposed to a constant onslaught of free radicals that drain our naturally occurring antioxidants and we are forced to supplement.

Believe it not, lavender essential oil for cancer joins the ranks as an effective natural antioxidant support.

Of the major antioxidant enzyme mentioned above, Chinese researchers observed that lavender essential oil can upregulate levels of all three in mice within the first day of treatment and protect brain cells again stroke and injury! (11) Romanian researchers noted similar activity by simply inhaling lavender for an hour each day. According to the study, “Taken together, our results suggest that antioxidant and antiapoptotic activities [of healthy brain cells] of the lavender essential oils are the major mechanisms for their potent neuroprotective effects against scopolamine-induced oxidative stress in the rat brain,” that can lead to cancer and other illnesses. (12)

LEMONGRASS

Several studies have evaluated the potential cancer-fighting properties of lemongrass essential oil. (13)

In 2009, an article was published that evaluated the essential oil of Cymbopogon flexuosus (a variety of lemongrass) for its in vitro cytotoxicity ability against 12 human cancer cell lines; as well as its anticancer effects on mice in vivo. The results were remarkable. Researchers discovered that the essential oil triggers a variety of mechanisms that kill cancer cells. “Our results indicate that the oil has a promising anticancer activity and causes loss in tumor cell viability by activating the apoptotic process as identified by electron microscopy.” (14)

MYRRH

The role that myrrh essential oil plays in natural cancer therapies is a becoming a popular topic in the scientific community. Particularly, with how it interacts with frankincense essential oils. In 2013, one of the most thorough studies on the topic was published in the journal Oncology Letters, and this is what researcher discovered:

“The effects of the two essential oils, independently and as a mixture, on five tumor cell lines, MCF-7, HS-1, HepG2, HeLa and A549, were investigated using the MTT assay. The results indicated that the MCF-7 and HS-1 cell lines showed increased sensitivity to the myrrh and frankincense essential oils compared with the remaining cell lines. In addition, the anticancer effects of myrrh were markedly increased compared with those of frankincense, however, no significant synergistic effects were identified.” (15)

Don’t think that researchers are evaluating frankincense and myrrh together as complementary therapies because of the Christmas story. Oh, no. The resins from frankincense and myrrh trees have been traditionally prescribed simultaneously in Chinese medicine for years. Used primarily to treat inflammatory diseases, blood stagnation, frankincense and myrrh therapy is exceptionally effective to relieve swelling and pain. Even though researchers have not observed a synergistic effect regarding cancer, “A previous study identified that the combination of frankincense and myrrh oils exhibited synergistic effects on harmful bacterial infections Cryptococcus neoformans and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.” (14, 16)

PEPPERMINT & SPEARMINT

In 2014, the journal BioMed Research International published an article uncovering that peppermint and spearmint is highly effective at managing common side effects people that suffer at the hands of medical cancer therapies; especially vomiting and nausea. Taken directly from the study we find that these oils, as well as some others, can help with a variety of conditions cancer patients suffer from:

“Cancer patients suffer from different side effects which can be preferentially reduced by alternative methods. EOs are used in the aromatherapy for reducing the agony of brain cancer patients (17). EO is efficient in depression and reduction of anxiety in cancer patients (18). Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, one of the most frequently used treatment method in cancer, are prone to various side effects (19). These are nausea and vomiting.

Mentha spicata [spearmint] and M. piperita [peppermint] have been found to be effective in overcoming these emetic conditions (chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, CINV) along with the reduction of expenditure on treatment in the cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy (20).

EOs of Leptospermum scoparium [Manuka myrtle] and Kunzea ericoides [Karo Greenfingers] were reported to prevent mucositis in the head and neck cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy when used in the preparation of mouthwash (21).

Some cancer patients having metastatic tumorigenic ulcers of skin develop necrosis and malodour (22). Patients suffering from such malodour were reported to have improvement in their state on treatment of these ulcers with the mixture of EOs having eucalyptus, melaleuca, lemongrass, lemon, clove leaf, and thyme on a 40% ethanol base (23).

Lavender EO is widely used in aromatherapy and is found to be beneficial in reducing the distress in cancer patients (24). Hence, EOs serve as the valuable preparations in amelioration of the side effects and sufferings of the cancer patients.”

THYME

The journal Molecules published a study in 2010 that evaluated how cancer cells were evaluated could stand up against ten powerful essential oils. Included was thyme and it stood out from the crowd as the most beneficial against prostate, lung carcinoma, and breast cancers. (25)

As one of the primary herbs to facilitate estrogen binding, thyme oil can help balance and regulate hormones. (26) Like we noted above with clary sage, thyme is not the only potential estrogenic essential oil noted for its anticancer potential. It should be interesting to note that, because cancer frequently holds receptors for estrogen and can theoretically be “fed” by any compound that is estrogenic, people at risk of developing certain cancer lines are oftentimes advised to avoid estrogen.

With the potent anticancer properties that we have seen in just the few studies noted above, it is more than likely that we will soon discover that the so-called “cancer-causing” plants and foods people are avoiding actually hold the key that our bodies need to unlock the cancer-fighting potential we all contain!



Anticancer Properties of Essential Oils and Other Natural Products

The truth about cancer and essential oils

Dr. Eric Zielinski

Cancer is not a death sentence. Not only is there hope, there are several natural solutions that people have successfully implemented for literally centuries! And the truth about essential oils and cancer is this: Research strongly suggests that oils can help not only prevent, but treat cancer and its debilitating side effects.

It's important to remember that the peer-reviewed articles discuss the success clinical researchers have experienced in using various essentials oils to prevent, stop and even reverse the growth of various cancer lines in animal and human cell studies. It is important to keep in mind that a vast majority of these studies are in vitro — based off of cells in a petri dish.

As researchers learn more about the specific ways essential oils affect cancer and how to translate that into practical use, what – if anything – should we do in response?

Essential oils are incredible substances that have a role in all of our lives, and it’s important to pay attention to the many established uses and heavy potential in the relationship between cancer and essential oils.

Five Essential Essential Oils

1. Frankincense

The king of essential oils, Frankincense is revered for its ability to rejuvenate skin when applied topically, to promote cellular health and immunity, and produces a healthy inflammatory response when taken internally, among other benefits.

2. Lavender

The most important health benefits of lavender include its ability to relieve stress, improve mood, promote restful sleep, lower skin irritation, prevent infections, reduce inflammation, eliminate dandruff, and soothe stomach bloating.

3. Myrrh

This essential oil is well known for its ability to cleanse the mouth and throat. Myrrh also promotes a youthful-looking complexion and offers a soothing sensation to the skin. Also, try diffusing Myrrh oil to promote emotional balance and well-being.

4. Peppermint

Ancient Egyptians cultivated and used peppermint leaves for indigestion. Peppermint also is frequently used to reduce inflammation of the mouth or throat. It can help with digestive problems — gas, bloating and nausea, morning sickness, and stomach cramps.

5. Thyme

The most active ingredient in thyme is thymol, which helps prevent fungal and viral infections (this reduces strain on the immune system). Thyme contains high levels of Vitamin C, which stimulates the production of white blood cells — the first line of defense in the body’s immune system.

What are Essential Oils, and How Were They Used Historically

As the fragrant oil found within various parts of a plant, typically the leaf or flower, essential oils are also called “volatile oils,” referring to the way in which they are released. Modern essential oils are usually collected when the plant matter is distilled, triggering the release of the essential oil.

This exact process is somewhat new in light of the course of our overarching history with herbs and botanicals. But, as you can imagine, those volatile oils are obviously present in all plants and were no doubt released and included in the earliest of infusions and preparations. Just because we can isolate that exact compound now doesn’t mean that previous generations had not enjoyed the benefits to some extent.

With that in mind, we can look to ancient uses of infused oils, primitive distillation, and general appreciation of the plants that we now use specifically for the essential oil, and that history helps to guide our growing knowledge of the mechanisms of the oils.

One of the most long standing sources of medicine in the world is the practice of Ayurvedic medicine in India, extending back long before Hippocrates. Ayurveda combines many therapeutic techniques, including essential oils as aromatherapy, and has proven itself in recent research. According to a 2013 study,

Based on comprehensive review of ancient vedic literature and modern scientific evidences, Ayurveda based interventions…may act as an important adjuvant to chemo-radiotherapy and enhance the quality of life of cancer patients. [1]

This is, of course, just one example of historic – even ancient practices retaining efficacy today, and studies like these are a constant encouragement to those of us pursuing natural treatments or support.

It’s also important to note that Ayurveda uses essential oils far differently than modern aromatherapists, who will, in turn, each use them differently from each other. History may be a guide toward essential oils, but it’s up to us to determine how and why we will use them now.

How Essential Oils are Used Today

Spend five minutes online and you know that essential oils are viewed and used in many different ways. Some of that goes back to our growing understanding of their specific actions. Some of it is personal preference and use.

The interesting thing about aromatherapy is that, though it doesn’t have to smell pleasant to have therapeutic benefits, individual aversions and emotional scent connection can negate some of the benefits. So essential oil use can be truly personal!

Traditional use of essential oils directly are for the aroma, hence the term aroma-therapy, coined in the last century. Ancient use of infused oils and essential oils included skin treatments and bathing as well as incense and burning for the aroma.

Modern uses of essential oils range from historically-derived aromatherapy and baths to topical formulations, diluted (and sometimes undiluted) topical applications, and internal use. As an increasingly popular arm of natural health, you’ll find contradicting recommendations on topical and internal use guidelines and safety. So, as you are learning oils and how to use them, remember two things: first, always dilute your oils; second, consult with a professional if you are unsure of what to do or how to do it safely.

What Research Tells Us About Essential Oils

When looking at essential oils through the lens of potential cancer treatment, remember that researchers are working through all of these variables in use, as well, and it’s important to note the type of use that research indicates before translating it directly to use.

Most research, to this point, has been conducted in vitro, or in a petri dish. Scientists are working through the ways that specific oils do or don’t affect specific kinds of cancer cells. Once a substance is found to have promise in vitro, steps are taken to test it in animals, then eventually in humans. But dosing, application, and efficacy are no small feat to figure, and this is a very long and precise process.

A brief consideration of the variables to be considered when finding or confirming remedies and treatments gives us a new appreciation for all that these researchers are able to do for us!

In light of this strenuous process, as you’ll see when we dive into specific oils in a moment, there is a lot that research can tell us about essential oils and cancer, and there is a lot that it cannot tell us. But just as we let ancient uses guide us toward isolated essential oils themselves, we can let research guide us toward specific essential oils that may help us in the battle against cancer.

Perhaps someday we’ll see in science exactly how to use these oils efficiently and directly against cancer. Until then, using known, safe applications of these promising essential oils, we can at least take steps to introduce the body to these powerful substances.

Essential Oils and Cancer Research

These are a few of the studies from selected essential oils that discuss benefits to cancer patients:

Clary Sage

A primary component of clary sage essential oil, sclareol, has shown some promising anti-cancer effects in lab tests. Over the last couple of decades but as recently as this year (2015), studies have emerged that analyze sclareol's effect on cancer cells. With the caveat that these benefits occurred within the confines of lab cultures and dose adjustments, sclareol may have an impact on the way that cancer cells proliferate, and it could help induce apoptosis (cancer cell death). [2]

While this does not tell us how much potential sclareol has to directly treat cancer — and it's exciting to think about where that could go one day! — it is a common thread that we see in many antioxidant-rich essential oils. This is especially interesting for clary sage, which also contains high values of phytoestrogens, which are commonly avoided in those who have certain breast cancer. With potential anti-cancer benefits built into clary sage, you have to wonder if it is meant to work as a whole package that ultimately delivers only benefits.

Frankicense

Arguably the most potent medicinal EO out there, recent research studies suggest that frankincense not only kills cancer cells, but it also promotes health and vitality in neighboring non-cancerous cells.

While we do know that the various forms of frankincense (essential oils, extracts, pure resin, etc.) have the potential to fight cancer, much is left to be understood, making this a controversial topic in the natural health and research world.

Current research demonstrates anti-mutagenic and apoptotic (programmed cell death) abilities. Though the results have occurred in lab tests and we have yet to see how to best replicate these results in active cancer in humans, the demonstrated results remain. Researchers found that boswellic acids are “cytotoxic to ovarian cancer cells at pharmacologically achievable concentrations” and “may form the basis of a novel anticancer treatment for ovarian cancer, perhaps alongside conventional chemotherapy. [3]” However, there is a serious debate as to whether frankincense oil contains boswellic acids (BAs).

Regardless if it's because of the BAs or some other chemical in the essential oil, studies continue to emerge, demonstrating similar effects on bladder[4], breast[5], colon[6], skin[7], stomach[8], and pancreatic cancers[9].

For those who have added frankincense essential oil to their cancer care plan, the benefits may go beyond anti-tumor effects. Particularly, in helping manage the side effects of conventional treatments, which can be more painful and difficult than the symptoms of cancer itself. Brain cancer patients, for example, sometimes experience swelling in the head called cerebral edema after their tumors have been removed. Steroid treatment is common but also associated with difficult side effects and complications.

Frankincense, on the other hand, has shown remarkable effects against this particular problem. In 2011, a clinical trial evaluating 44 individuals monitored frankincense as a remedy for cerebral edema. In 60 percent of the patients, the swelling was reduced by 75 percent or more. The concluding remarks called for frankincense to be prescribed for cerebral edema in these circumstances, avoiding the struggles of steroid therapy [10].

The essential oil has also been used with much success to treat issues related to digestion, the immune system, oral health, respiratory concerns and stress/anxiety. [11, 12]

Here is a testimony about Skin Cancer and Frankincense:

Just wanted to share more about Frankincense. My Dad tried it for his COPD and was very surprised with the effects. We were talking about what he called cancer on his face and top of ears and he was saying that he'd have to go have it cut off again. I just mentioned that he try some of his Frankincense. It's been about a week and half and last night he started telling me how he was telling his friend that he had these things on the side of his face and on top of his ears. THEN, he said “I started putting my oil on them and one is gone and the other I can barely feel”…………………. he is starting to trust and believe in the oils………..He is a very cautious man so I was a little surprised he even tried it. Sometimes we just have to be patient. (1)http://stopcancer.com/EssentialOilsTestimonies.htm

Lavender

A recurring theme in any natural health discussion, antioxidants are, in effect, the super healers that our culture needs. The free radicals created by toxins, pollutants, chemicals, and even stress are the culprits for a cascade of cellular damage, immune inhibition, and limitless health risks – including chronic illness and cancer.

If free radicals are the villain, antioxidants are the hero.

The body itself creates antioxidants in the form of the enzymes glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT), among others. But we expose our bodies to an onslaught of free radicals and drain our bodies in sedentary lifestyles, so our natural production is not always sufficient.

We've already seen some super antioxidants, like clove essential oil, and lavender joins the ranks as a powerful natural antioxidant support.

Chinese researchers observed that lavender essential oil would upregulate all three major antioxidant enzyme levels in mice within the first day of treatment. [13] In Romania, researchers noted similar activity using inhaled lavender for an hour each day and, according to the study, “Taken together, our results suggest that antioxidant and antiapoptotic activities of the lavender essential oils are the major mechanisms for their potent neuroprotective effects against scopolamine-induced oxidative stress in the rat brain,” that can lead to severe illness and cancer. [14]

Lemongrass

To date, seven studies have evaluated lemongrass' potential connection with cancer [15].

In 2009, a study was published that evaluated the essential oil from a lemon grass variety of Cymbopogon flexuosus for its in vitro cytotoxicity against 12 human cancer cell lines, as well as in vivo anticancer effects on mice. The results were quite promising, as researchers discovered various mechanisms of how the oil killed the cancer lines.

“Our results indicate that the oil has a promising anticancer activity and causes loss in tumor cell viability by activating the apoptotic process as identified by electron microscopy. [16]”

Myrrh

The ability myrrh essential oil has in healing cancer is becoming a popular topic in the industry. One of the most thorough studies on the topic was published in the journal Oncology Letters in 2013, and this is what they discovered about frankincense and myrrh oils:

“The effects of the two essential oils, independently and as a mixture, on five tumor cell lines, MCF-7, HS-1, HepG2, HeLa, and A549, were investigated using the MTT assay. The results indicated that the MCF-7 and HS-1 cell lines showed increased sensitivity to the myrrh and frankincense essential oils compared with the remaining cell lines. In addition, the anticancer effects of myrrh were markedly increased compared with those of frankincense, however, no significant synergistic effects were identified. [17]”

Recommendation: For a truly Biblical combination, use frankincense and myrrh essential oils together for a synergistic blend of antimicrobial benefits.

Notably, these two resins are generally prescribed simultaneously in traditional Chinese medicine. They are used primarily to treat blood stagnation and inflammatory diseases, as well as for the relief of swelling and pain [18]. Even though there was no synergism noted regarding cancer, “A previous study identified that the combination of frankincense and myrrh oils exhibited synergistic effects on harmful bacterial infections Cryptococcus neoformans and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. [19, 20]

Peppermint and Spearmint

According to a 2014 article in BioMed Research International, peppermint and spearmint are highly effective at helping cancer patients manage side effects from cancer itself — as well as from conventional treatments. Taken directly from the article, the ability of these precious oils (as well as the others mentioned below) to combat debilitating and annoying cancer side effects is literally amazing:

“Cancer patients suffer from different side effects which can be preferentially reduced by alternative methods. EOs are used in the aromatherapy for reducing the agony of brain cancer patients. [21] EO is efficient in depression and reduction of anxiety in cancer patients. [22] Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, one of the most frequently used treatment method in cancer, are prone to various side effects. [23] These are nausea and vomiting. Mentha spicata [spearmint] and M. piperita [peppermint] have been found to be effective in overcoming these emetic conditions (chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, CINV) along with the reduction of expenditure on treatment in the cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. [24]

EOs of Leptospermum scoparium and Kunzea ericoides were reported to prevent mucositis in the head and neck cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy when used in the preparation of mouthwash. [25]

Some cancer patients having metastatic tumorigenic ulcers of skin develop necrosis and malodour. [26] Patients suffering from such malodour were reported to have improvement in their state on treatment of these ulcers with the mixture of EOs having eucalyptus, melaleuca, lemongrass, lemon, clove leaf, and thyme on a 40% ethanol base. [27]

Lavender EO is widely used in aromatherapy and is found to be beneficial in reducing the distress in cancer patients. [28] Hence, EOs serve as the valuable preparations in amelioration of the side effects and sufferings of the cancer patients.”

Thyme

In a 2010 article from the journal Molecules, cancer cells were evaluated to see how they could stand up against 10 powerful essential oils. Thyme was one of those oils, and it stood out from the crowd as most beneficial against the cells of the prostate, lung carcinoma, and breast cancers. [29] While it can't be stated enough that these studies are preliminary, I'm filled with hope for a future where naturally occurring products replace toxic chemicals for cancer treatment and — dare we hope? — cures!

As one of the top herbs for estrogen binding, thyme may be able to help the body balance and regulate hormones. [30]

Incidentally, this is not the only time we have seen a potential estrogenic herb noted for its anticancer potential, as well. Because cancer frequently holds receptors for estrogen, thus being fed by anything estrogenic, we often suggest avoiding estrogen if you have or are at high risk for cancer. But with potent anticancer potential, we may one day find that what we thought were cancer-causing plants and foods were really giving our bodies a blueprint for fighting cancer on its own

The Power of Essential Oils

Many people are cynical about essential oils until they begin to learn that, historically, essential oils addressed many ailments for thousand of years. Essential oils are powerful plant-based chemical compounds that, unlike patented prescription drugs, your body easily absorbs and utilizes.

In fact, even if you’re a cancer patient going through chemotherapy, I urge patients to incorporate other natural healing into your regimen — including essential oils.

It’s not an all or nothing thing. It’s not like chemo or oils. No, it could be both. And I’m not promoting the conventional model unless that’s what you want to do. But if you’re doing conventional treatment we have seen chemo along with essential oils make the chemo even more effective. It’s unbelievable!

Skin Cancer – Frankincense and Other Essential Oils

Here is a testimonial for Frankincense Oil:

Just wanted to share more about Frankincense. My Dad tried it for his COPD and was very surprised with the effects. We were talking about what he called cancer on his face and top of ears and he was saying that he'd have to go have it cut off again. I just mentioned that he try some of his Frankincense. It's been about a week and half and last night he started telling me how he was telling his friend that he had these things on the side of his face and on top of his ears. THEN, he said “I started putting my oil on them and one is gone and the other I can barely feel”…………………. he is starting to trust and believe in the oils………..He is a very cautious man so I was a little surprised he even tried it. Sometimes we just have to be patient. (1)http://stopcancer.com/EssentialOilsTestimonies.htm

Frankincense is also anti-inflammatory.

Several testimonials for frankincense oil have been shared with us. Whenever you talk about “essential oils,” however, the FDA is currently harassing the #1 vendor of essential oils so we cannot currently mention their name. But they create therapeutic-grade essential oils, not the perfume-grade oils normally found in retail and wholesale distribution.

(Note: Some health practitioners import high-quality essential oils made in other countries.)

The current protocol for treating skin cancer is the following (using a 1/2 and 1/2 mixture of the two oils):

Frankincense with Idaho Balsam Fir (three days);

Frankincense with Tsuga (three days);

Supercharging This Treatment

Superficial skin cancer should be simple to treat with the products mentioned above. However, for those with more severe skin cancer which goes deep beneath the skin, a complete treatment plan should be devised using one of the complete treatment protocol articles.

An alternative cancer treatment should be a complete treatment protocol. Do NOT forget to study the complete treatment protocol for Stage I, II and III cancer patients and the complete treatment protocol for Stage IV cancer patients:

Gut Health

Experts have a few areas of concern when it comes to gut health. These are areas we’re familiar with but that we may not see as a reason for alarm.

Antibiotics

More than 2 million people are infected and more than 25,000 people die of antibiotic-resistant bacteria every year. This is a huge public health concern because it’s only going to get worse. The more bacteria are exposed to antibiotics, the greater the chance of new strains that are resistant to those antibiotics.

In 2011, drug makers sold 30 million pounds of antibiotics for livestock. In fact, antibiotics made up about 80 percent of sales that year. Feeding animals low dosages of antibiotics create a better breeding ground for antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Antiseptic overkill

Part of the overall problem is that we are too clean. The refrigerator is one of the biggest blessings and curses of our modern time because what it does is essentially make life convenient for us and at the same time cripple us. This has reduced our need for probiotic-rich food people got when they fermented food for preservation.

Microbes in the gut break down many of the proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates in our diet and they produce beneficial compounds like vitamins and anti-inflammatories that we can’t produce.

We are made of bacteria as much as we are made of human cells, and yet we’re constantly trying to eradicate bacteria through antiseptic overkill.

Synergistic solution

High-quality essential oils working in tandem with probiotics work to amplify each other in how effectively they work to restore essential flora to the gut.

Oils work like a good version of antibiotics because they don’t kill the good stuff. They only kill the bad stuff. It’s what God invented.

In Conclusion

The truth about essential oils and cancer is this: Research strongly suggests that oils can help not only prevent, but treat cancer and its debilitating side effects.

Subsequently, many experts and critics of using essential oils for cancer therapy insist that we cannot extrapolate the data from these studies to live, in vivo cancer patients. Even though there is merit to what these people say, let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater.


Grape Seed Extract

An extract from grape seeds forces laboratory leukemia cells to commit cell suicide, according to researchers from the University of Kentucky. They found that within 24 hours, 76 percent of leukemia cells had died after being exposed to the extract.

The investigators, who report their findings in the January 1, 2009, issue of Clinical Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, also teased apart the cell signaling pathway associated with use of grape seed extract that led to cell death, or apoptosis. They found that the extract activates JNK, a protein that regulates the apoptotic pathway.

While grape seed extract has shown activity in a number of laboratory cancer cell lines, including skin, breast, colon, lung, stomach and prostate cancers, no one had tested the extract in hematological cancers nor had the precise mechanism for activity been revealed.

"These results could have implications for the incorporation of agents such as grape seed extract into prevention or treatment of hematological malignancies and possibly other cancers," said the study's lead author, Xianglin Shi, Ph.D., professor in the Graduate Center for Toxicology at the University of Kentucky.

"What everyone seeks is an agent that has an effect on cancer cells but leaves normal cells alone, and this shows that grape seed extract fits into this category," he said.


Black Seed Extract

Black Seed Extract also known as Nigella sativa has been used as traditional medicine for centuries. The crude oil and thymoquinone (TQ) extracted from its seeds and oil are effective against many diseases like cancer, cardiovascular complications, diabetes, asthma, kidney disease etc. It is effective against cancer in blood system, lung, kidney, liver, prostate, breast, cervix, skin with much safety. The molecular mechanisms behind its anticancer role is still not clearly understood, however, some studies showed that TQ has antioxidant role and improves body's defense system, induces apoptosis and controls Akt pathway. Although the anti-cancer activity of N. sativa components was recognized thousands of years ago but proper scientific research with this important traditional medicine is a history of last 2∼3 decades. There are not so many research works done with this important traditional medicine and very few reports exist in the scientific database. In this article, we have summarized the actions of TQ and crude oil of N. sativa against different cancers with their molecular mechanisms.


Pomegranate Seed Extract

The pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) fruit has been used for the prevention and treatment of a multitude of diseases and ailments for centuries in ancient cultures. Pomegranate exhibits strong antioxidant activity and is a rich source of anthocyanins, ellagitannins, and hydrolysable tannins. Studies have shown that the pomegranate fruit as well as its juice, extract, and oil exert anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, and anti-tumorigenic properties by modulating multiple signaling pathways, which suggest its use as a promising chemopreventive/chemotherapeutic agent. This review summarizes preclinical and clinical studies highlighting the role of pomegranate in prevention and treatment of skin, breast, prostate, lung, and colon cancers.
