Since ancient times, dandelion has been used because it offers various health benefits. Medical researchers have discovered that the dandelion has the potential to cure cancer! The root of the dandelion is a better treatment than chemotherapy for prostate and lung cancers. In Ontario, Canada the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre’s Dr. Carolyn Hamm said that dandelion root extract helps with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia – and it is the only thing that does.
After failed treatments to help his chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, 72-year-old John Di Carlo, was sent home to live out his last days. John said he started to drink dandelion root tea as a final attempt for a cure.
The body then replaces the cells with new, healthy cells. The extract also helps with colon, liver, breast, prostate, and lung cancer. Dandelion root helps to boost your immune system and only targets the unhealthy cells, unlike chemotherapy which destroys healthy and unhealthy cells.
Dr. Hamm urges people to check with their doctors because dandelion root can negatively impact chemotherapy. You can reap the benefits from dandelion tea even if you don’t have cancer. It also helps fight diabetes.
Dandelion tea is high in vitamin C, vitamin A, and antioxidants. The tea may not taste as good as other teas, but it seems like it is worth drinking!
