Achillea persea is an Iranian species of the Achillea millefolium
genus. Traditional use of Achillea persea against serious
illnesses in ancient Persia attracted the attention of researchers
interested in studying this plant's therapeutic effects
on the immune system. To this day, Iranians still recommend
Achillea persea in the fight against cancer. ALOE VERA
Achillea persea contains essential oils, cineol, pro-azulene,
achilleine, salicylic acid, tannins, potassium, riboflavin,
selenium, and vitamin C. Herbalists praise Achillea persea
for its anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, carminative, astringent,
antispasmodic, stomachic, and bactericidal actions. Experimental
work done on mice by Canadian researchers confirmed the
plant's therapeutic importance in the treatment of some
cancers. Like its other species, Achillea persea is endowed
with a wide range of medicinal properties. It supports vein
health, relieves heavy legs, hemorrhoids and the after-effects
of phlebitis. Achillea persea is used in the treatment of
dysmenorrhea and amenorrhea, and, because of its hemostatic
action, it is also helpful against metrorrhagia.
Aloe vera is a tropical plant well known for its laxative and cholagogue
properties. Aloe vera is also a strong healer of the skin and mucous membranes.
Its main constituents are polysaccharides, including glucomannan, anthraquinones,
glycoproteins, sterols, saponins, organic acids, and selenium.
Used externally, Aloe vera heals burns, smoothes wrinkles, and clears
up a variety of skin conditions. Taken internally, aloe vera soothes irritation
of mucous membranes, helps treat peptic ulcers and prostatitis. Aloe vera
is also thought to balance hormone functions thanks to its estrogenic and
revitalizing action (Ayurvedic medicine).
There is some reason to believe that Aloe vera is also an effective
Boswellia serrata is a plant that grows mainly in India and China. Extensive
clinical research conducted on this plant by Dr. James Braly (Florida)
confirmed that Boswellia serrata is endowed with a great number of medicinal
properties. Boswellia serrata extracts are chiefly used for their anti-arthritic
and anti-inflammatory actions. Boswellia serrata also helps remove excess
fat circulating in the blood, prevents atherosclerosis, restores liver
function, eases pain (analgesic), lowers fever (antipyretic), and kills
The therapeutic action of resin alcohol extracts made from Boswellia
serrata was tested on mice presenting Ehrlich ascites and S-180 tumours.
Researchers observed that cancerous tumours receded and life expectancy
Tumeric has been shown to exhibit antiseptic, antiinflammatory and antihepatotoxic
effects. It relies on its volatile oil for its actions. It is noted
for its ability to treat inflammations of the digestive and reproductive
systems. This makes it useful in folk remedies for hepatitis, flatulence
and spasmodic dysmenorrhea. It increases the production of enzymes in the
liver that metabolize toxins in a manner similar to schizandra, licorice
and milk thistle. This may also explain its anti-inflammatory effects.
The volatile oil has also been shown to be antiseptic. It effectively
kills many gram(-positive) and gram(-negative) bacteria as weIl as many
yeasts and molds.
Eleutherococcus is a shrub native to the Russian Far East. Its therapeutic
properties were first studied by a number of Russian scientists who administered
the plant to members of the army. Eleutherococcus was mainly used to protect
and normalize the body functions of patients undergoing heavy chemo- and
radiotherapy. It was noted that these patients had more energy and were
less prone to the undesirable after-effects of chemotherapy. In general,
recovery time was much shorter. While carrying out clinical experiments
with Eleutherococcus, Russian doctors also discovered that this plant was
capable of inhibiting metastasis. Cancer patients who were receiving Eleutherococcus
lived much longer than those who did not.
Pao pereira is a tree native to Brazil. It was Dr. Mirko Beljanski,
a former researcher at the Pasteur Institute (France), who first discovered
the therapeutic action of Pao pereira. His in vitro laboratory tests demonstrated
that Pao pereira extract effectively suppressed the proliferation of HIV,
herpes viruses, cancer, and leukemia cells. From these encouraging results,
Dr. Beljanski concluded that Pao pereira could be useful in the fight against
AIDS, herpes, and cancer.
In 1992, Pao pereira was tested both in vitro and in double blind trials
by Professors Jackertz and Chermann at INSERM (Marseille), by Professor
Andrieux at the Laennec Hospital, and by Doctor Dumas at INSERM (Paris).
According to their findings, Pao pereira proved to be an effective, non-toxic
medication. Back in 1985, Les Annales Pharmaceutiques françaises
(no. 1) had published the results of an in vivo study on mice conducted
at the Faculty of Medicine and the Pharmacological Institute of Liège
(Belgium), showing Pao pereira's antimitotic activity (i.e. capacity to
stop cancer cells from replicating).
Quassia is a small tree growing 2-6 meters in height and is indigenous
to Northen Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia and Argentina. Quassia bark
stimulates the secretion of gastric juices, increases appetite, aids in
digestion and may have a choleretic effect. Dr. James Duke reports
that Quassia is a folk remedy for liver diseases, high blood pressure,
malaria and spasms.
Quassia contains many active constituents and phytochemicals, including
quassin. Several of the quassinoids found in the bark of Quassia
have been documented to have antineoplastic actions. The bark also
contains another phytochemical called quassimarim, which has demonstrated
antineoplastic, antileukemic and antitumorous properties.
Red clover is a member of the pea family. Its active constituents are
isoflavones, flavonoids, coumarin, resins, minerals (calcium, magnesium,
phosphorus, potassium) and vitamins (niacin, thiamine). Laboratory research
has shown that Red clover is a cholagogue, diuretic, antispasmodic, expectorant,
and bactericidal, supportive of the immune system, and mildly estrogenic.
Red clover has a longstanding reputation for treating skin conditions (inflammations,
rashes, psoriasis, eczema) and is invaluable in respiratory problems and
The Chinese prized Red clover for its ability to soothe rheumatic pains
and fight cancer. Red clover combined with chaparral has a traditional
use in the United States for staving off cancer.
It is also thought to be an excellent blood purifier.
