Cinnamon Cancer Cure

Ground Cinnamon and Cinnamon SticksGround cinnamon can assist in a holistic cancer treatment. Ground cinnamon will not cure cancer alone but in combination with other herbs, juices and therapies, ground cinnamon will boost cancer treatment effectiveness.

Ground cinnamon has extremely high anti-oxidant activity with an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value of 267,536 compared to raw blue berries which has an ORAC value of only 6,552. Aside from its great taste and aroma, cinnamon is also a great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.

In a study published by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Maryland, cinnamon was found to reduce the growth of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells.

Cinnamon may also reduce risks for colon cancer by helping to remove excess bile in the digestive tract and prevent the damage it can cause to colon cells.

In another research, cinnamon extract has been shown to inhibit VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor), which is crucial to the formation of tumor blood vessels. A group of proanthocyanidins which is found in large quantities in cinnamon is responsible for this.

Cinnamon treatment has also been found to inhibit the expression of regulators of tumor progression in melanoma cells. The same study found that cinnamon treatment enhanced the anti-tumor activities of a type of T cell whose functions include destroying tumor cells.

Another recent study concluded that cinnamon could be used as a chemopreventive drug for cervical cancer.

Cinnamon Historical Medical Usage

Cinnamon is a spice consisting of the inner bark of the cinnamon tree. Cinnamon is a dietary source of manganese, calcium and iron. It also contains salicylic acid and several carotenoids and proanthocyanidins, all of which may have chemopreventive activities. Cinnamon has been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antibacterial, insecticidal and antioxidant properties. Consumption of cinnamon has been shown to improve glucose metabolism, lowering blood sugar and reducing insulin resistance.

Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known. Cinnamon was used in ancient Egypt not only as a beverage flavoring and medicine, but also as an embalming agent. It was so highly treasured that it was considered more precious than gold. Around this time, cinnamon also received much attention in China, which is reflected in its mention in one of the earliest books on Chinese botanical medicine, dated around 2,700 B.C. Cinnamon’s popularity continued throughout history. It became one of the most relied upon spices in Medieval Europe. Due to its demand, cinnamon became one of the first commodities traded regularly between the Near East and Europe. Ceylon cinnamon is produced in Sri Lanka, India, Madagascar, Brazil and the Caribbean, while cassia is mainly produced in China, Vietnam and Indonesia.

Cinnamon Precaution

Patients taking blood glucose lowering or blood-thinning medications should use cinnamon extract with caution. Cinnamon was also shown to have estrogenic activity in vitro. Patients with hormone sensitive disease should use it with caution.

Some recent studies in Europe have shown that cinnamon derived from the Cassia plant contains a toxic compound known as Coumarin. This compound is known to cause liver and kidney damage in high concentrations. Since the powdered cinnamon that we purchase in our supermarkets is typically derived from the Cassia plant, it is important to avoid consuming high doses of it.

Large quantities of cinnamon should also be avoided during pregnancy due to the possibility of adverse effects on the uterus.

Cinnamon Dosage

Doses range between 1g daily of cinnamon powder (approximately 1 level teaspoon) to 6g. However, data emerged from a study that 6g daily was no more effective than the 1g which effectively reduced blood glucose and blood lipid levels for the sustained period during the testing. It is possible that even lower doses are just as effective. This is particularly interesting because the higher the dose the more coumarin – which is a particular concern when consumers are being sold much cheaper Cassia and not true Ceylon cinnamon.

Cinnamon Cancer Treatment Recommendation

Cinnamon can be added with juices and teas during juice fasting. Cinnamon can also be used post juice fasting. Just sprinkle it on raw fruit slices or add it with different juice drinks. Aside from tasting good, it smells fantastic!

Treatment Notes

Cinnamon with lemon grass tea is a natural angiogenesis inhibitor. Cinnamon can be added to fruit juices. During juice fasting. this effect is increased due to lowered blood glucose levels and lower plasm viscosity. To get a program overview go to Cancer Treatment Program
