Can Frankincense Oil Cure Cancer?
When one thinks of Frankincense, it is usually in conjunction with Christmas and the tale of the three wise men, who were purported to have brought the baby Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
This perhaps confirms the fact that Frankincense has been valued since ancient times, which it has, both for its fragrant scent as well as for its medicinal properties – properties which modern medicine is only just now beginning to discover.
Also known as boswellia, frankincense claims as part of its vast nutrient profile a unique compound known as acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid, or AKBA for short. Scientific tests have determined that AKBA is a sworn enemy of cancer.
Healing Abilities of Frankincense Oil
Frankincense Oil has been used as an ancient traditional healing method in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa for at least 5,000 years.
Frankincense Oil has long been valued for its various healing properties, including its ability to reduce inflammation throughout the body, fight infections, support the immune system and fight cancer.
Frankincense Oil can also boost one’s mood, heal wounds and fight fungus, be used to ease digestive problems, strengthen hair, and remedy bad breath.
Medical research done at the University of Leicester in the U.K. has discovered that the use of frankincense oil is a very effective treatment for ovarian cancer, including late-stage ovarian cancer.
Jackie Hogan’s Recovery
Jackie Hogan was diagnosed with a rare bladder cancer and informed by her doctors that she would eventually have to have her bladder removed and would have to wear a drainage bag for the rest of her life.
This was unacceptable to Jackie, so she ignored all medical suggestions and looked for alternate methods of treatment for her cancer.
Hogan found out that researchers at the University of Oklahoma discovered that frankincense oil, especially in conjunction with sandalwood oil, contains properties that can kill cancer cells.
According to experts, “Frankincense essential oil may represent a candidate on a growing list of natural compounds selectively eradicating cancer cells.”
According to Hogan, she took four drops by mouth twice daily and currently has no signs of bladder cancer whatsoever.
How Frankincense Oil Heals
Researchers believe that the cancer-fighting power of frankincense oil might lie in its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, as chronic inflammation throughout the body is now thought to be one of the underlying causes of cancer.
Frankincense Oil contains monoterpenes, which are compounds that can help eradicate cancerous cells at the onset of their development as well as throughout their progression stages, so can heal cancer no matter at which stage it is discovered.
Monoterpenes are found in the essential oils of many plants including fruits, vegetables, and herbs. They prevent the carcinogenesis process at both the initiation and promotion/progression stages. In addition, monoterpenes are effective in treating early and advanced cancers.
Monoterpenes such as limonene and perillyl alcohol have been shown to prevent mammary, liver, lung, and other cancers. These compounds have also been used to treat a variety of rodent cancers, including breast and pancreatic carcinomas. In addition, in vitro data suggest that they may be effective in treating neuroblastomas and leukaemias. [Source: Environmental Health Perspectives]
Monoterpenes play a vital role in healing because they follow a series of 3 events in the body:
- Halting a cell’s Replication Process
- Cell Death
- Tumour Regression
Other studies have found preliminary evidence to suggest that it may also be effective for treating cancers of the Stomach, Brain, Breast, Colon, Pancreas and Prostate.
