Israeli research finds lemongrass kills cancer By Jim Chow Lemongrass, the herb commonly used in asian cuisine

, has been found to have anti cancer properties by researchers at Ben Gurion University [BGU] of the Negev in Israel. Specifically, citral, a main component that gives lemongrass its unique scent, was linked to cancer cell apoptosis or 'cell suicide' while leaving healthy cells alone. Scientists Dr. Rivka Ofir and Prof. Yakov Weinstein, of the Albert Katz Chair in Cell-Differentiation and Malignant Diseases, Department of Microbiology and Immunology at BGU headed the research team. An amount of citral found in one gram of lemongrass [Cymbopogon citratus] steeped in a tea cup of hot water was added to petri dishes with cancerous and healthy cells. The healthy cells were unharmed while the cancerous ones died. Citral is also present in melissa [Melissa officinalis] and verbena [Verbena officinalis.] The findings were published in Planta Medica, and herbal remedies. Why citral causes cancer a result of damaged cells gone awry, dividing cells die on their own. Perhaps citral resets die. a scientific journal on alternative cell suicide is not known. Cancer is at a rapid rate. Normally defective the defective cell so that it can

How is the lemongrass taken? Israeli doctors recommend 8 glasses of lemongrass tea on the days cancer patients were treated with radiation and chemotherapy. Steeped tea, may be one way to receive citral, but if you consider that plant extracts, also known as essential oils, are heat sensitive and can be damaged by high temperatures and being volatile, will have a portion evaporated. Another way is to eat the lemongrass extract either with food or in a capsule and swallowed. Topical application will have the lemongrass penetrate the skin. It can also be massaged in with carrier oil such as sesame oil. A very radical approach would be to inject the oil but this should not be done without knowledge and experience. In fact, I only mention it for academic discussion and do not recommend you attempt it. Is lemongrass effective in fighting cancer? Lab results and actual effects on humans are two different things. There are no human studies and probably won't be because this is a natural non patentable plant. What else to consider before using lemongrass? Cancer is a complex set of symptoms and it is not simple to change. Using only one method to solve it, is to believe in the Magic Bullet Theory. Some people believe in using this one thing, whatever it is - a practice, product - will cure the patient. No doubt there are stories of many things changing the cancer situation. The question is, will it change your condition? I choose to believe the Buy-Down Protocol more. The Buy-Down Protocol looks at many things that touch and can influence the human being and its health state. By having more things in alignment with the human, I believe your chances for success will be greater. Having said that, the Buy-Down Protocol will not discount the Magic Bullet, perhaps another way to see this is the Buy-Down Protocol is many magic bullets. Where to get lemongrass? If you do want lemongrass, I have what I believe to be the best therapeutic source made to the highest quality for healing properties. I also have melissa and sandalwood, another plant extract with anti cancer properties.

Eating green mussel essential fatty acids and glutathione precursors and oxygenating formulas should also be considered. Less acidic diet and more organic foods would also unburden the load on the body and allow more resources for getting well.
