In essence, these natural remedies are simply “setting the body right” . A recent exciting study joins the growing body of evidence that cancer may soon be treated utilizing natural substances that do not cause the trauma of chemotherapy.

Propolis, the “caulk” honeybees use to patch holes in their hives, may slow the growth of prostate cancer, according to an article on

Mice with prostate tumors were given low doses of a propolis extracte, resulting in a 50% slowing of tumor growth . More remarkably, feeding the substance directly to the mice resulted in the tumor growth to stop altogether.

Propolis properties include potent antioxidant and anti-microbial action, and healing, analgesic, anesthetic, and anti-inflammatory capabilities.

Like propolis, a handful of additional natural compounds have been discovered that show promise for treating cancer without the toxic effects caused by chemotherapy; bromelain, vitamin C, turmeric (curcumin) and eggplant extract are among them.
