Rosemary helps heal estrogen-dominant breast cancer - January 12, 2016
In ancient times, many common herbs that we now use to season a roast or throw i
n a salad were used as integral parts of the healing arsenal. One such common he
rb is often seen as part of the landscape in many arid parts of the United State
s. It is the humble rosemary bush.
The Egyptians and the Greeks at one time considered rosemary to be a “sacred plant”
and in Medieval Europe the herb was used a sign of remembrance for fidelity. The
Romans too believed that it improved memory and in China it has been used for t
housands of years for everything from treating headaches to curing baldness.
Recent research, however, is proving that it may also be a powerhouse of cancer
prevention and reversal, especially for breast cancer.
Rosemary Is an antioxidant dynamo
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, rosemary’s many
efits include: memory improvement, the relief of muscle pain and spasm,
ulation of hair growth, support for the nervous and circulatory systems
prevention of thrombosis. It also has antimicrobial properties and is a

Its most impressive attribute, however, is the effect it has on cancer cells, in
cluding skin cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, leukemia and breast cancer.
What does science tell us about the power of rosemary?
In large part, rosemary’s anticancer properties are due to high levels of carnosic
acid, rosmarinic acid and alpha tocopherol (vitamin E), all strong antioxidants
. In particular, carnosol, also found in rosemary, has been proven to detoxify c
ertain substances that initiate the growth of breast cancer tumors.
A 2007 study done by the University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Timişoara, Romania s
howed that when women with Stage III and IV breast cancer were given a special s
alad dressing high in rosemary (along with basil, sage, sea buckthorn berry, bal
samic and grape seed oil), the oxidative stress reduced significantly in 95% of
The findings led the researchers to conclude that rosemary in conjunction with o
ther bioactive herbal compounds “can lead to significant effects on health represe
nt(ing) a promising adjuvant treatment in patients with advanced breast cancer…”
Rosemary Is safer than tamoxifen for reducing estrogen
Approximately 80% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have ER-positive breast
cancer, which means that cancer cells are growing in response to the hormone est
rogen. The most common conventional drug used to block the effects of estrogen i
s tamoxifen, which has more side effects than can be listed in one article, incl
uding cancer. In fact, tamoxifen is so dangerous that it has been classified as
a carcinogen by the World Health Organization since the 1990’s.
On the other hand, current research indicates that rosemary has the ability to i
nactivate estrogen hormones safely and naturally by stimulating liver enzymes th
at can literally “turn off” aggressive estrogen types. Researchers at Rutgers Univer
sity evaluated the effects of rosemary extract on laboratory mice and discovered
that a 2% rosemary diet “increased liver microsomal oxidation and glucuronidation
(a process involved in Xenobiotic metabolism).” It especially effected estradiol
