Ancient ayurvedic herb that is being tested now at Fred Hutch Seattle

brain tumors
prostate cancer

it alleviates major inflamation
and is good for migraines.

I don't have time to do the research...I am busy with my own.

very close friend with brain tumors is having fantastic results at least temporarily.
ALL pain from the entire body is gone

a comment she made

... started taking the herb
and it was like a fresh breeze blew though my brain and breathed life into my body..."



Another contact did full brain radiation with no side effects
and no steroids
by using Boswellic acid through the whole process.

apparently there is an extract
called AKBA
which has major results

if you are dealing with cancer
augment your intake with Boswellia AKBA and turmeric curcumin product.
If anyone else would like to offer some quick research
my friend used
google with words like

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boswellia_serrata

In Ayurvedic medicine Indian frankincense (Boswellia serrata) has been used for hundreds of years for treating arthritis.[1]


in Kinnerasani Wildlife Sanctuary, Andhra Pradesh, India.Extracts of Boswellia serrata have been clinically studied for osteoarthritis and joint function, particularly for osteoarthritis of the knee. A Boswellia extract marketed under the name Wokvel has undergone human efficacy, comparative, pharmacokinetic studies.[2][3][4]

Boswellia serrata is used in the manufacture of the supposed anti-wrinkle agent "Boswelox",[5] which has been criticised as being ineffective.[6]

[edit] Anti-cancer activity
Boswellic acid, an extract from Boswellia serrata has been studied also for anti-neoplastic activity, especially in primary and secondary brain tumours. As of today, there are several academic reports of its efficacy in in-vitro studies [7] [8], and limited clinical reports [9]. Boswellic acid is also undergoing a clinical trial of stage 2 at the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Center[10
Quote:in 2 weeks

I would be concerned! Not trying to frighten but what was the
reaction of your friend's doctor/s to this?

High white blood cell count could point to disorders e.g. leukemia
and high platelet count is not necessarily a good thing. Platelets are
involved in blood clotting and too many can cause excessive clotting.
And that could cause clots to travel around the system and perhaps
cause strokes. Particularly if the person is prone to internal problems
or has internal injuries.

Such rapid increase in both is a case for very careful observation, imo,
not necessarily to be taken as something good happening.

I've checked around and the stuff is available as a supplement but expensive.
Was thinking of trying some for my joint problems and as always you have to
get to know what you buy.

I used Glucosamine sulphate but if you buy the cheaper products they pack
with NaCl/KCl, in fact up to 30% of the total weight as salt!!! Now I don't use
salt very much at all in my diet, I believe you get enough in a normal varied
diet without needing to throw the stuff over everything, like some people do.
So that extra in the tablets isn't a problem. And I haven't needed to use anything
for well over a year now, but odd twinges are coming back and my knees get achey
and stiff after long or heavy walks.

BosS is under trial and I know very little about it. More contributions
here would be helpful, before I decide whether to try or not. Might be the
wrong thing altogether for me - I'm not suffering from any obvious arthritic
problems, as far as I am aware!

I was taking an herbal osteoarthritis remedy with Boswellia, among other herbal ingredients. It worked pretty well, but wasn't a complete cure. The real cure was to avoid all hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated vegetable oils.

Ah soooo....

lol

but

the white blood cell count and platelet count
were extremely low prior to intake of the herb.

The rise in these values actually put her just below
the bottom end
of what is called the "normal reference frame" spread.

Thanks, that's the answer to the implied question. Now I
need to get to grips with the impact on the average person.

Can't find any published results! But I'll keep looking.

Quote:Boswellic acids are non-redux inhibitors of 5-lipoxygenase, which is how they inhibit leukotriene B4 synthesis. This in turn means that less leukocytes/white blood cells (WBC) are recruited to the inflammatory site, which results in a decreased inflammatory response. It has been shown to significantly reduce the total WBC count in joint fluid, leading to faster healing. In contrast to NSAIDs, some studies have also indicated that boswellic acids prevent degradation of glycosaminoglycan, thus producing a protective effect on articular cartilage.



A randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trail conducted by Kimmatkar, et al. provided positive results in the use of boswellia for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee. In the study, all patients receiving boswellia reported a decrease in knee pain, increased knee flexion, increased range of motion, increased walking distance, improvement in climbing stairs, kneeling, squatting, and cross-legged sitting. Although there were no radiological changes, the reported frequency of knee swelling was also reduced.

I mentioned my knee problems - this article is encouraging!

An herbal extract inhibits the development of pancreatic cancer
An herb recently found to kill pancreatic cancer cells also appears to inhibit development of pancreatic cancer as a result of its anti-inflammatory properties, according to researchers from the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson. The data were presented at the AACR 100th Annual Meeting 2009 in Denver.
Thymoquinone,
the major constituent of the oil extract from a Middle Eastern herbal seed
called Nigella sativa,
exhibited anti-inflammatory properties
that reduced the release of inflammatory mediators in pancreatic cancer cells,
according to Hwyda Arafat, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of Surgery at the Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University and a member of the Jefferson Pancreatic, Biliary & Related Cancers Center.
