Nature itself abounds in many powerful health benefits. You are probably unaware of the presence of many potent plants, but in fact, they reside right in your garden.
For many of us, the first things that come to mind when Leukemia is mentioned are medicines, chemotherapy, the low quality of life, and general unhappiness.
Here, we’re going to provide all the necessary information about the extract made of the organic dandelion root (and leaves) and what it can do about people who fight leukemia.
Recent studies have revealed that dandelion root is cytotoxic for three kinds of human leukemia cells, killing up to 96% of the cells after just 48 hours!
According to Caroline Hamm, an oncologist, an older patient experienced myelomonocytic leukemia, one of the most aggressive forms of leukemia. When treated with chemotherapy, he did not reach any progress. So, he was suggested to start some natural therapy which included dandelion root tea which he shared with another patient in the waiting room.
When both of the patients had medical check-ups done, Dr. Hamm saw the results of the tests. Both of the patients had an improved health condition only by drinking the tea and both refused to take chemotherapy!
The dandelion tea acts in that way in which he affects the cancerous cells so that they disintegrate in 48 hours, stimulating the growth of new healthy cells in the patient’s body.
Dr. Hamm contacted Siyaram Pandey, the biochemist at the University of Windsor, who conducted a research together with his students.
They collected the blood cells of 9 different patients who were using the dandelion root extract and applied it on several cells so as to cultivate them. Within 24 hours, the cells had been killed.
There were also numerous other studies which have discovered that the extract of dandelion can have potentially active ingredients against cancer, melanoma, as well as prostate and breast cancer.
Other properties of dandelion root/leaves
The extract of the dandelion root/leaves has been used for centuries as an effective treatment in the traditional folk medicine, so it isn’t a surprise that these studies managed to prove that.
Dandelions have relatively good levels of iron, vitamins, and protein content. While iron is an integral part of hemoglobin in the blood, vitamins like vitamin-B and protein are essential for the formation of red blood cells and certain other components of the blood. This way dandelion can help anemic people keep their condition in check.
Dandelions are rich in calcium, which is essential for the growth and strength of bones, and they are rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and Luteolin, which protect bones from age-related damage. This inevitable damage is often due to free radicals, and is frequently seen as bone frailty, weakness, and decreased density.
Dandelion juice can help diabetics by stimulating the production of insulin from the pancreas. Since it is diuretic in nature, which causes more frequent urination, this, in turn, helps remove the extra sugar from the body. Moreover, diabetics are prone to renal problems. The diuretic properties of dandelion can help by removing the sugar deposition in the kidneys through urine.
Prevents urinary tract infections
Dandelion can help prevent urinary tract infections, as well as bladder disorders, kidney problems and possibly even cysts on reproductive organs.
The vitamins and nutrients present in dandelions help cleanse the liver and keep them working properly. Dandelions aid our digestive system by maintaining the proper flow of bile. Dandelion is also rich in vitamin C, which helps with mineral absorption, reduces inflammation and prevents the development of diseases.
Dandelion acts as a mild laxative that promotes digestion, stimulates appetite, and balances the natural and beneficial bacteria in the intestines.
Dandelion sap, also known as dandelion milk, can be used to treat skin disease that is caused by microbial and fungal infection. The sap is highly alkaline and has insecticidal, germicidal, and fungicidal properties. This sap can be used on itchy areas, ringworm, eczema etc.
