We are talking about a plant that is easily available, but a plan that most consider to be weed and tend to overlook it. However, dandelion is a flowering plant that has many healing properties. The root and the leaves are both used in contemporary medicine. The root contains minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulphur, iron and chlorophyll. It also contains polysaccharides, inulin and mucilage, substances that can improve the functionality of the digestive system, absorb toxins from the food, cleanse the liver, etc. The leaves are a rich source of minerals and vitamins such as A, B1, B6, C, E and K.
A recent research has demonstrated that dandelion root has killed up to 98 % of the leukemia cells in laboratory tests, after only 48 hours.
John Di Carlo’s case is extraordinary. After an aggressive and unsuccessful treatment, he was sent home to spend “the last days”. But miraculously, after listening to his doctor’s advice to start drinking dandelion root tea, he took a turn for the better. Within just four months, he was in a remission and his doctors have associated this success to dandelion tea. Also, eminent herbalist Maria Treben recommends dandelion root tea for many diseases, including different types of cancer.
Studies are showing that dandelion root extract acts very effectively and very fast against the cancerous cells, in such a way that they disintegrate within 48 hours, during which time new formed healthy cells in the body are not affected.
Additional studies showed that dandelion root extract has a potent anticancer activity against lung cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, liver cancer, prostate cancer and leukemia. However, there aren’t any significant effects on brain and skin cancer.
How it works
Basically, the immune system can control the cancer cells in your body. If the immune system is healthy, the cancer won’t appear. However, when the immune system is malfunctioning, the body starts losing control of the cancer cells and cancer appears. The powder from dandelion root has a potent phytochemical that builds up the blood and boosts the immune system. Doctors try to remove the cancer from the body with chemotherapy and radiation and by doing so; it destroys the immune system and decreases your appetite. These two are the most important things the body needs to beat cancer.
How to pick the dandelion root?
You can harvest dandelion root at any time of the year. After you pull it off from the ground, cut the leaves off and gently remove the earth around the root. Make sure not to damage it during this procedure and do not wash it. After that, dry the root on around 100 degrees under direct sunlight, or by using an incubator with no water. The whole drying procedure should take around 6 days. To test if it is ready, just break the root, and if it snaps, then it is ready for use.
Dried dandelion root can preserve its active chemicals up to 1 year. Always store the roots in a glass jar in a cold and dark place.
The best form to use the dandelion root is in powder. You can take a little over a half teaspoon of the powder on a daily basis at any time and mix it with water. Do not use it in soft drinks or anything hot. After just four days, you will start to feel better. In most cases, this will help build up the immune system in about three weeks. After that, the immune system will be back in control of the cancer cells and it will inhibit cancer cells growth. You shouldn’t expect a miracle right away, we all know how devastating and hard cancer is and this is not an overnight cure, so it will take some time until the body removes the cancer and heal.
