  • How did Herbal Medicine and Aromatherapy become what they are today? Today more and more complementary therapies are being re-introduced into the healthcare industry, and those two therapies are herbal medicine and aromatherapy. Our pharmacology is based on plant extracts so why not reach back, or forward to be closer to nature or natural? Aromatherapy is well known for its affects on moods, colds, illnesses, ailments and the like.
  • Which herbs/aromas help with what symptoms? Peppermint and ginger is well known for reducing nausea and stomach upset. Chamomile and hops for insomnia, green tea for antioxidants. The list goes on. Each plant brings something special to the health table. Essaic tea has so many ingredients to help prevent cancer.
  • Can it help women to take preventative measures against terminal illness (such as breast cancer)? This question answers itself. Prevention is the key. Just like echinacea helps in the prevention of colds and flu. There is so much we can do through eating, applying or drinking the essence of plants especially if they are deep green.
  • If so, what are some examples of herbal medicine used for prevention? Some believe a diet rich in antioxidants helps prevent cancer. Red clover is another herbal option for the prevention of cancer. It has been found to be effective in preventing the formation of tumors. Dandelion root has been recognized in that it kills melanoma cells while keeping healthy cells intact.
  • Can it help to cure women already diagnosed with breast cancer? Cancer develops when cells in a part of the body begin to grow out of control. Although there are many kinds of cancer, they all start because of out-of-control growth of abnormal cells.Once you have a diagnosis of breast cancer the time is perfect to act.  The cure is in the prevention but it does help with slowing down the disease and in the recovery.
  • If so how? The most famous cancer herbal preparations are probably the Hoxley formula and Essiac. Many people began seeking out holistic cancer remedies in the early ‘80s when it became apparent that Western medicine was not curing cancer. The growing number of people diagnosed with cancer, became quite desperate because traditional medicine had failed them. It was then that many people sought out herbal cancer cures and other forms of natural medicine, and many people with terminal diagnosis did indeed live, curing their cancer, or living for years past the doctors’ predictions.  

  •   These questions will be answered by Diana Ross - Experienced-Registered Yoga Teacher, breast cancer survivor and the founder of Breast Cancer Yoga.
