Lung Cancer: Natural Supplements for Treatment

Tuesday, 01 Feb 2011 03:45 PM

Lung cancer, a disease in which the cells of the lung tissue grow uncontrollably and form tumors, is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths and occurs mostly in people ages 45 to 70.

Primary lung cancer starts in the lungs, but secondary lung cancer starts elsewhere in the body and spreads to the lungs. Treatment depends on various factors. There are several natural supplements that can help in the healing process, including:

Seafood is the most powerful and most effective natural treatment for cancer, as it contains the complete natural range of the 72 nutritional elements that act as anti-lung cancer supplements.

Ginseng is one of the most popular herbs in the United States, and it is used as a natural supplement in lung cancer treatment. American ginseng has been shown to inhibit tumor growth.

Grape seeds have antioxidants that are said to reduce the risk of developing cancer.

Quercetin and other flavonoids in fruits and vegetables act as a natural supplement for the treatment of lung cancer. Drinking at least one cup of green tea everyday helps in lung cancer treatment.

Oranges contain compounds called limonoids, which give a slightly bitter taste to citrus fruits. They appear to be highly active anti-cancer agents. Regular consumption of oranges is associated with significantly lowering your risk of developing lung cancer.

It has been found that people who include two or more servings of spinach every week in their diet have a considerably lower chance of developing lung cancer.
