A combination of garlic, onion, hot peppers, horseradish, ginger, turmeric and apple cider vinegar, forms a nutritional, high potency tonic I call The Master Tonic. Promoting healthy immune function, digestion and longevity, the ingredients in this potent natural “cure-all” tonic support natural immunity and help with many different health conditions. Best of all, they have the scientifically proven ability to prevent and reduce cancerous cell growth, without the dangerous effects of chemotherapy.
Research has linked a higher intake of garlic to a lower risk of colon cancer, intestinal cancer, stomach cancer, prostrate cancer, head and neck cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer, lung cancer and others. Garlic can help cancer cells die off while also reducing cell growth and therefore the spread of cancer. Garlic also has antibacterial properties and supports the body to repair DNA. Taking garlic on a regular basis has been shown to contribute to the prevention of cancerous cells and the spread of those cells.
Onions like garlic, contain antioxidants that can block highly reactive free radicals from damaging cell DNA and starting the cancer process. In laboratory tests, compounds in onions stimulate the self-destruction of cancer cells that form while also slowing down the growth of cancer cells. From research it has been concluded that onions offer protection against many different types of cancers.
Ginger has been used medicinally for centuries due to its high anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. More recently, new research has discovered that ginger also has anti-cancerous properties, naturally inhibiting the growth of cancer cells.
A study done at the University of Illinois found that due to its high level of compounds called glucosinolates, horseradish helps the liver detox carcinogens while suppressing the growth of tumors and preventing the formation of new tumors. Horseradish has also been found to aid in the prevention many types of cancers, most commonly lung, colon and rectal cancers.
Hot peppers are a part of the capsicum family. The natural chemical that puts off the heat is called capsaicin. Studies have found that capsaicin is toxic to cancer cells. Researchers have found that capsaicin disrupts the energy source of the cancer cell, which is the mitochondria. This resulted in the cancer cells dying that the, yet there is no harm done to normal cells.
A groundbreaking study published in the journal Anticancer Research reveals that one of the most extensively researched and promising natural compounds for cancer treatment, curcumin, from turmeric, has the ability to selectively target cancer cells while leaving non-cancerous cells unaffected. In contrast, chemotherapy and radiation kill both normal and cancerous cells, reducing the body’s natural healing ability. Although not approved by the FDA for promotion as a cancer remedy on its own, many studies are revealing that this natural root is effective at treating cancer, with results more effective than chemotherapy or radiation.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is a vinegar made from apples and has been reported to help with many ailments in the body. Laboratory tests have shown that apple cider vinegar helps to slow the growth of cancer cells. As cancer needs an acidic environment to thrive, ACV inhibits the growth of cancer by naturally alkalizing the body.
