FREE DANDELIONS at Vermont State Parks!


Dandelion flowers are edible and one of the richest sources of lecithin. The benefits of lecithin are numerous, ranging all the way from cardiovascular improvement to artery protection and memory enhancement. If you cut off the green base, the flowers aren’t bitter.

Dandelion root far more effective in fighting cancer cells than chemotherapy

by J. D. Heyes –  Originally published May 3, 2016 in Natural News 

A so-called "weed" growing right in your front and back yards could hold the key to being the most effective cancer-fighting compound in the world.

Previous research, as well as recent research from the University of Windsor in Canada, has found that dandelion root may be especially effective in treating and defeating cancer, and much more so than immune system-destroying chemotherapy.

As noted by the university in a press release, researchers are so sure that they have finally developed the correct dosage of the extract, that they are preparing clinical trials using a specially formulated dandelion tea.

Research director and biochemist Dr. Siyaram Pandey, Ph.D., of the University of Windsor, along with his fellow researchers, have shown successfully in the lab how the dandelion root extract causes cancer cells to go through apoptosis, or cell suicide, while leaving healthy cells intact.

"This is fantastic news," Pandey said. "We've been waiting for this announcement for a long time and now it is real."

The February 2015 announcement has special meaning for a project that was dedicated to the memory of Kevin Couvillon, who lost a three-year battle with acute myeloid leukemia in November 2010, the university said.

Destroying cancer cells within two days

The following year, his parents, Dave and Donna Couvillon, made a large contribution to Dr. Pandey's research on natural extracts and potential cancer treatments.

"We strongly feel that Kevin would want us to continue to fight against cancer so that others would be spared such a cruel fate," said Donna Couvillon. "Natural medicine allows one's own immune system to be part of healing process and we wholeheartedly support this endeavour and the excellent research done by this team."

The university press release stated further:

The dandelion root formula in use in the Pandey lab is about five times more concentrated than the extract that can be purchased over the counter and has been proven to kill leukemia, melanoma and pancreatic cancer cells in lab mice.

Caroline Hamm, an oncologist at the Windsor Regional Cancer Center, made an application to Health Canada in 2012 to proceed to human clinical trials.

"This is huge, such a big accomplishment," says Dave Couvillon. "To see it happening is the first step and now we need to keep our fingers crossed that they get the right kind of results and we're confident they will."

The website Natural Healing Magazine reported last month that the trials found that cancer cells were destroyed within 48 hours.

From the University of Windsor's Dandelion Root Project website:

Since the commencement of this project, we have been able to successfully assess the effect of a simple water extract of dandelion root in various human cancer cell types, in the lab and we have observed its effectiveness against human T cell leukemia, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, pancreatic and colon cancers, with no toxicity to non-cancer cells. Furthermore, these efficacy studies have been confirmed in animal models (mice) that have been transplanted with human colon cancer cells.

Additional health benefits

Clinical trials were opened to 30 patients, all of whom had already exhausted all other cancer treatment options.

As we have reported, dandelions have other health benefits as well:

The dandelion greens contain extremely important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B6, thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin C, iron, calcium, potassium, folate, magnesium and manganese. They may contribute up to 535% of the suggested daily intake of vitamin K, not to mention over 110% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A. It is believed that some of its flavonoids such as zeaxanthin and cryptoxanthin have specific healing properties. Zeaxanthin seems to provide protection for the retina when confronted by the sun's UV rays, while cryptoxanthin can potentially defend the body against the development of mouth and lung cancer cells.

    I learned at age 16 that wine made from the blossoms qualifies as Sneaky Pete.

    It took more than usual effort to discover the probable intended meaning of "Sneaky Pete". Usage now probably differs from when you were 16. And where.

  4. Below is a summary of how my daughter got a cure for LEUKEMIA.
    My daughter had chronic leukemia for 8 years, she experienced symptoms like severe infections, lost weight continuously and continuous nose bleed, we were devastated but the doctor told us there is hope for her and we did chemo and radiation therapy for her which was very painful and expensive because she was just six. After years of search for a cure i was fortunate enough to get Dr Oscar's contact who is renowned for treating and curing leukemia in his country. I contacted him and he came with his medicine and treated her using his herbal medicine and in a month she was fine. If i had not experienced all this i would have said maybe magic but there is really power in natural herbs. My daughter has no symptoms of leukemia our family doctor also confirmed this and she is doing just great. You too can contact him on (dr.rolandoscar@gmail.com) for more info on his medicine and treatment process.
