People with cancer are being urged to take herbal remedies to reduce their risk of developing the deadly disease, the first studies show.
A growing body of evidence shows that some cancer drugs have potent ingredients and may be more effective than traditional treatments.
The Wall St. Journal reviewed the latest research on cancer medicines to find a herbal remedy to be a good alternative to standard cancer treatments.
The Journal looked at nine herbal remedies that have been studied in the United States, Britain, Germany, Israel, India, Brazil and the Netherlands.
One herbal remedy that’s gaining traction is the “gut-cleansing” tea that contains garlic and ginger.
Its ingredients include a blend of the four elements: the sunflower, the oregano, the lemon and the cinnamon.
It’s been used for centuries by Native Americans, and it’s a popular herbal remedy among Native American tribes, who have been known to use it to cleanse the body.
“It can help reduce inflammation, boost digestion, relieve pain, and promote weight loss,” said Dr. Steven Koonin, a gastroenterologist at the University of Washington in Seattle who studies herbal medicine.
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in December found that taking a garlic-containing herbal remedy increased the likelihood of survival for people with stage IV lung cancer.
That study was led by Dr. Eric Boesel, a researcher at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
Boesel’s study found that people taking the garlic-based remedy had a 25 percent reduction in their survival rate.
It found the herbal remedy did not appear to affect the body’s ability to break down cancer cells.
Other research has suggested the herbs’ anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties can be effective.
The herbs may also be beneficial for people who suffer from Crohn’s disease, a potentially life-threatening disease in which the immune system attacks the lining of the digestive tract.
Boesell said he’s heard anecdotal reports that people who take the garlic remedy may have a lower risk of passing on the disease.
A 2015 study published online in The Lancet found that patients who took a garlic remedy for four weeks showed an overall reduction in the risk of Crohn-related disease.
The herbal remedy, called fennel oil, contains garlic, ginger, peppermint, cinnamon and oreganos.
The authors said fennels are “generally considered a safe, inexpensive and easy-to-find alternative to the traditional herbal remedies.”
The Journal of Clinical Oncology reported last month that a study published last year in the journal Cancer found the combination of garlic and garlic oil was more effective in treating a type of lung cancer called Mycobacterium avium-infection-associated pneumonia, or MEAP-ACP.
The researchers, led by Daniel P. Wittenberg of the University at Buffalo, New York, looked at 1,800 patients with MEAP.
About half of the patients were treated with a garlic oil combination, while the other half took the placebo.
The patients who got the garlic oil-containing combination had lower odds of developing MEAP compared with those who got no treatment.
The study authors said the combination was about 30 percent less effective than a placebo.
The Mayo Clinic has said garlic oil is a proven treatment for both patients with advanced lung disease and patients who have other lung disorders.
The American Cancer Society has not yet responded to a request for comment.
The Journal of Chronic Diseases reports that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is considering a garlic derivative as a new type of treatment for lung cancer, but it hasn’t approved it yet.
A 2014 study published by The Journal Of Clinical Oncolrology found that a combination of vitamin E, echinacea and garlic could prevent the spread of COVID-19, which has killed more than 2,000 people.
The researchers said the study was small and limited to a subset of patients who were treated in the U, D.C. and New York City.
In a commentary published in JAMA, Dr. Charles B. O’Reilly, chairman of the department of medicine at Emory University School of Medicine, said garlic-derived treatments are an attractive alternative to traditional treatments because of their effectiveness and potential for a range of diseases.
“They may help patients manage more severe symptoms, like the common cold, or less common ones, like arthritis and chronic pain, or those with chronic conditions like heart failure, chronic kidney disease, or multiple sclerosis,” he said.
