Using herbs as part of cancer treatment is becoming more common. Alternative medical treatments are generally safer and can still deliver results. It’s currently estimated that 54% of patients will have used some form of herb when going through chemotherapy.
This is important for doctors and the medical profession is starting to take notice of that. In time there’s a chance the mainstream medical profession will go as far as to recommend certain natural cancer treatments.
So what are the 5 main cancer-beating herbs you should take into account?
Garlic is one of the most popular herbs for cancer sufferers to take. And many studies have shown a link between a lower risk of cancer development and the consumption of raw garlic.
One study investigated whether the population of China could lower their risk of developing lung cancer by consuming raw garlic. The results were startling.
