God’s Natural Chemotherapy

I believe deep within my spirit that God created us for incredible health & vitality and desires for us to look to nature to provide the resources for health & well-being.  Our society has been trained to look first to man-made interventions and treatments.

However, I believe we honor and glorify Him by looking to His creation for the answers to our health goals. The more I study nature, nutrition, human physiology and biochemistry, etc. the more His majesty comes alive in my body, mind, & soul.  Discover what I believe to be God’s natural chemotherapy.

The world’s most powerful natural chemotherapy substances are found right under our nose in the form of natural plants, herbs, & spices. Some of the most potent of these include cruciferous veggies (such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, bok choy, collards, & turnip greens among others) contain a wide array of anti-carcinogenic compounds.  Here are a few of them:

Natural Chemotherapy Nutrients:

  1. Indole-3 Carbinol:A powerful antioxidant that scavenges free radicals in the body.  It plays a very critical role in liverdetoxification by inducing hepatic cytochrome P450 monooxygenases.  This reaction affects estrogen metabolism by increasing the production of the chemoprotective estrogen 2-hydroxyestrone (12).

Additionally, it has been shown that I3C inhibits aflotoxin-DNA binding and arrests the G1 growth phase of cancerous human reproductive cells (3).  It has also shown benefit in the treatment of Systemic Lupus, an autoimmune disease related to faulty estrogen metabolism (4).

  1. Isothiocyanates:(Phenethyl Isothiocyanate & Sulforaphane) Shown to induce apoptosis (programmed cell death) in most cancer cells including drug-resistant leukemia cells.  The p53 gene is considered the “guardian of the genome,” due to its role in regulating the cell cycle and suppressing cancer formation (4).  This is an example of a natural chemotherapy agent in action.

Increased levels of oxidative stress creates a mutation of the p53 gene which promotes cancer cell growth.  Isothiocyanates have been shown to destroy mutant p53 genes (56).   Broccoli sprouts are considered the best source of these powerful compounds.

  1. Lutein & Zeaxanthin:These 2 carotenoid anti-oxidants are very similar in chemistry and function.  These 2 powerfully reduce oxidative stress, inhibit cancercell formation, and induce cancer cell apoptosis (78).  These substances are found in abundance in kalespinach, brussel sprouts, & broccoli.

Are we Heading into a Food Shortage?

The flooding wiped out stockpiles. Now the planting season is already behind on schedule because of the weather. As I have warned, the computer has been forecasting colder winters and shorter-summers. The planting season will decline and thus the danger of a serious food shortage as we head into 2024.          …
