5. Chili peppers

Let your taste buds be your guide. Capsaicin resides in the seeds and fleshy white inner membranes of peppers.It is also responsible for the heat in chili peppers.

6. Essiac tea  

Essiac tea uses an ancient recipe made by the Ojibwe tribes of Native Americans. A Canadian nurse, Rene Caisse, was the first to use it to help her cancer patients. Essiac is “Caisse” spelled backward.

Caisse began to see remarkable results with her patients.She then wanted to make this elixir available for widespread use. In the 1920s she began working with Dr. Charles Brusch.

Caisse and Dr. Brusch began promoting the use of Essiac tea as an effective cancer treatment. The success of Essiac caught the attention of the mainstream medical industry. They started spreading rumors about health risks associated with consuming Essiac tea.

FDA has not approved Essiac tea for use as a cancer treatment and never will. Essiac is an herbal formula used for years to fight cancer. Among its immune-enhancing ingredients are burdock, Indian rhubarb, sheep sorrel and slippery elm.

7. Hoxsey Herbs 

Harry Hoxsey was the young son of a veterinarian who used an herbal tonic and salve on animals. As Hoxsey's father lay dying in bed, he told his son to use it to help as many cancer patients as possible.

In 1922, Harry Hoxsey started his first clinic in Taylorville, Illinois. He often got into trouble for practicing medicine without a license.

Around 1924 he went to Chicago to meet with the head of the AMA, Dr. Morris Fishbein. Hoxsey wanted to prove that his formula worked. He got access to a Chicago policeman whose cancer prognosis was terminal.

Hoxsey cured the policeman by using his secret formula.The act impressed Fishbein, and he offered to buy the formulas from Hoxsey.But Hoxsey disagreed with the terms. There was no guarantee that everyone would be able to have access to the formula.

There are two herbal formulas used in the Hoxsey treatment. One is external, and it consists of a red paste made with bloodroot.The internal tonic consists of other herbs. Lymphoma and skin cancer respond well to this treatment. 

Today, the BioMedical Center across the Mexican border uses Hoxsey’s tonics. They also use other natural cancer remedies including laetrile, and more.
