As soon as they slap the word “CANCER” on your chart, get ready for the tidal wave.
You’re about to be hit by a tsunami of drugs.
The thing about chemotherapy is that it’s 100% toxic.
If it kills your cancer… it’s going to take a whole lot of healthy cells with it.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
Because two of the World Health Organization’s “most essential medicines” – not just for cancer, but overall – are actually derived from an African flower.
And in its natural form, it can beat back blood cancers like lymphoma WITHOUT all the toxic side effects.
Don’t get caught in the crossfire
In the early 1960s, Pharma wasn’t quite so big… and its researchers actually spent time focusing on medicinal plants.
Believe it or not, a number of anti-cancer drugs that emerged at that time were based on plant compounds!
TWO of them were found in a flowering plant that grows wild in Madagascar – rosy periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus).
Vinblastine and vincristine are powerful compounds known as vinca alkaloids that fight cancer by blocking the process that allows blood vessels to grow within and deliver nutrients to malignant tumors (a.k.a. angiogenesis).
But that’s not all.
Both these vinca alkaloids work with your body’s own immune system to fight the tumor – even if the tumor itself resists the cancer-cell-killing capacity of the compounds.
Big Pharma took vinblastine and vincristine and ran with them, manufacturing them into pharmaceutical drugs like Velban and Oncovin.
Side effects include nausea and vomiting as well as chest pain and constipation.
That’s what happens when you isolate compounds like these and dose them in high concentrations.
But if you go back to the first discovery of periwinkle and its anti-cancer activity, Canadian researchers in the 1950s found that the plant extract on its own could lower white blood cell counts.
And a blood cancer like leukemia is, of course, characterized by having too many white blood cells.
There is no one cause of cancer… and that means there is no one cure.
And no one alkaloid on its own can KILL the cancer without HARMING you in the process.
All the other compounds in the whole periwinkle want work IN CONCERT WITH the alkaloids to kill cancer AND protect YOU in the process.
And while you wouldn’t want to eat periwinkle flowers, as they’re toxic in large quantities, small amounts of periwinkle tincture are safe.
You can get it without a prescription… but it’s best to use it under the advisement of an experienced herbalist.
