Recent Studies Show Seven Herbs Help Stop Cancer Growth

According to a recent study, seven medicinal plants actually do slow or stop the growth of multiple forms of cancer, including cervical, breast, leukemia, colon, ovarian, liver, and uterine cancer. These plants have long been used by traditional healers to treat a number of ailments, but now they have been proven to have powerful effects against cancer.

Medicinal plants that fight cancer

“Medicinal plants have been used for the treatment of diverse ailments since ancient times, but their anti-cancer properties have not been well studied,” says Koh Hwee Ling, associate professor from the National University of Singapore’s pharmacy department.

“Our findings provide new scientific evidence for the use of traditional herbs for cancer treatment, and pave the way for the development of new therapeutic agents.”

Several of these plants have become endangered species and this highlights the need for their protection and cultivation. They may be valuable constituents of new and more effective treatments in the future.

“Given the scarcity of land due to rapid urbanization and the dearth of records on herbal knowledge, there is a pressing need to document and investigate how indigenous medicinal plants were used before the knowledge is lost,” says Siew Yin Yin, who did the research as part of her doctoral thesis under Koh’s supervision.

It is important to note that even with the discovery of the effectiveness of these plants in fighting cancer, people should not self-medicate without consulting modern medical practitioners. Often a combined approach between modern and traditional treatments could be the best approach.

Be sure to check out the full descriptions of these seven plants for the complete information about their beneficial uses.
