Cancer :: Aloe vera and natural cancer therapy
There are potential anticancer benefits of aloe vera. The potential for natural cancer therapy with supplements like aloe vera and melatonin has been suggested and these substances, called immunomodulants, may benefit certain forms of cancer.
Oncologist Glen Hyland from the Mayo Clinic reviewed the health histories of 100 cancer patients who used aloe vera therapy as a part of their cancer treatment. He marveled at the speed at which patients receiving glyconutrients from aloe vera experienced a reduction in the size of squamous cell carcinomas (lung) and oat cell carcinomas (usually originating in the bronchi or lungs).
And the patients’ erythrocytes (red blood cells), leukocytes (white blood cells), and thrombocytes (platelets) did not diminish. A serious reduction in these blood elements is a potential threat in patients undergoing cancer chemotherapy.
Dr. Hyland commented that normal cells appeared protected and abnormal cells appeared more sensitive to treatment when aloe vera was made part of an integrated approach.
