Ginger Tea shown to Naturally kill Cancer

Various cultures have been stressing on the numerous health benefits of ginger since ancient times from their own experience with the root. Ginger’s use as a medicine has been observed since thousands of years, but it was only recently that science has been able to validate the amazing health benefits of this superfood. Ginger was traditionally used to treat various symptoms of cold, indigestion and nausea among many other things, but recent research has shown that Ginger is even effective at fighting cancer; 10,000 times more effective than Chemotherapy to be precise.

Ginger tea benefits

A recent research highlighted that 6-shogaol, a constituent produced when the ginger root is either cooked or dried shows some powerful cancer-combating activity. (Cite: Ginger cancer treatment) The study even showed that the cancer-fighting tendency of this compound only harmed the cancer cells while non-cancerous cells were effectively left unharmed. This is a crucial distinction from conventional cancer treatments like chemotherapy which tend to affect even non-cancerous and healthy cells, thus greatly harming the overall health of the patient.

The major distinction between conventional cancer treatments and treatment using ginger is that treatments like chemotherapy fail to harm or kill cancer stem cells which are essentially responsible for creating tumor forming cells, thus leading to greater chances of the cancer coming back again. 6-shogaol, on the other hand, has shown considerable promise in fighting these cancer stem cells, although further research is still required. The two types of cancer cells most susceptible to ginger have been observed to be the ovarian and prostate cancer cells.

Along with this recently observed cancer-fighting ability of Ginger, it has numerous other benefits too which makes it highly useful. Ginger possesses powerful antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties along with having high quantities of vitamin C, magnesium, and other minerals. It has also been shown to help with digestive health, boosting immunity, helping with asthma, cardiovascular diseases and relieving pain among many other uses.

Cancer killing properties of ginger

Ginger tea, a beverage made by infusing ginger in tea is one of the best ways to make use of the numerous health benefits of the ginger root. Ginger tea is extremely effective in combating the onset of cold, boosting digestive health and boosting immunity. Another way to reap the health benefits of ginger is by drinking lemon ginger tea which boasts energy-boosting, immunity-boosting, and antioxidant properties. It can also help with improving skin and hair health, regulating blood sugar levels, improving cognition and helping with fever.

While ginger tea has many amazing health benefits, the concept of moderation also applies here. In small doses, Ginger tea is extremely beneficial and helps with many health issues, but if taken it large doses, it can cause heartburn, diarrhea and upset stomach. Some people can even have a ginger allergy or their stomach might be too sensitive for the powerful ingredients of ginger which might result in the above-mentioned side-effects even with small doses.

  2. “We have lost the war on cancer.”
    In 1940s one person in twenty would get cancer. In the 1970s it was one out of every sixteen people. In the 1990s it dropped to one person out of ten. Today, one person out of three gets cancer in the course of their life.
    Your doctor doesn’t know about it and if you think the modern cancer approach works…think again.
    But one man did know about this plant and many other plants he used for decades to treat and cure thousands of Americans.

  9. Hi Sharyear
    Dried or cooked ginger or diffused into a tea will boost immunity and has many healing benefits. Try ginger or ginger with lemon as a tea and see if there are any changes.
    Cut back if you have any stomach discomfort. Food can be an amazing healer but it is not like a pharmaceutical drug – no specific doses, amounts, or equal results for all. But, also, rarely, unless allergic, no serious side effects.

  10. Hi Dale
    Please let us know how you are doing and if your scan showed any changes. Wishing you good health.

  11. Hi Linda

Science may be discovering this now but as natural health care practitioners we have known this for at least over 20 years.

  30. I had respiratory problems, drank ginger tea and my next scan showed that everything had disappeared. When I didn’t drink it the problems came back. Now I found out my BC meds aren’t working. And c cells are in my spine. Do you think ginger tea will help me?

  31. Hi Mary
    Ginger tea can’t hurt you. It is definitely worth enjoying. However, it is important to continue seeing your doctor to know what is happening in your body. Cancer treatment is never about one medicine or one remedy. Please let us know how you are doing and if the ginger tea is bringing you improvement.

  33. I would suggest fresh ginger rather than dried. When supporting a client with cancer we have to look at all the issues involved not just the diagnosis.

Went through hepatitis C treatment 6 years ago for 48 weeks and half way through treatment my toothbrush was being poisoned with unknown substances; I was getting gum infection for the rest of my treatment and that continued for another year after treatment; it only came to light when the young boy poisoned my razor blade and my whole face broke out; evil; disgusting I know but that’s very true what happened and for the past 4 years at least my health has not been that good at all;

  35. My 4 year old boy had a metastatic neuroblastoma cancer doctor said won’t be able to do anything
    I want still to fight in a natural way please help me

  36. Hi Wazifa, we would have to do a consultation with you and your son. We can do this through zoom. My partner Lynne Hinton works with many cancer patients, best to book an appointment with her. You can call us at 1-800 456-9313 or email through the contact page on the website.

  37. There’s a strong possibility that I may have lung cancer in the very early stage. I had to go through a series of tests to determine if I am a candidate for the Zephyr valve and the CT scan picked up something so then I had a Pet scan done 2 weeks later. Now they want me to have another CT scan which would be approximately 7 weeks after the 1st one. I want to be proactive in fighting this if it is in fact cancer. Can I purchase ginger tea because I don’t know how to make it. Also can I add sugar or honey to sweeten it

  38. Hi Cindy, you can buy a piece of fresh ginger at the grocery store. Slice off about 3-4 thin slices for one cup of tea or about 6 -8 for a pot of tea. Let the ginger soak in the hot water for 5- 10 minutes and drink. I would not add sugar or honey. Consuming sweets of any kind is not good if you have cancer.
