Re: Dandelion Root Extract makes cancer cells "commit suicide"
Glad to see this post.

Herbs have been used for thousands of years. With heavenly scents, graceful beauty, they have spiced up life with flavor and health. Plants were the first medicine, both on the battlefield and the birthing bed, from cradle to grave. Often mysterious, sometimes magical, forever satisfying.

They have never lost their charm and intrigue. In fact their use has evolved and grown with the written word and the way information can be gained so readily. The day is approaching when I fear that this knowledge will be restricted and lost….slipping back into the dark ages, perhaps for many years, perhaps forever.

New and old diseases are arising. Over use of man made “cures” are creating “super” viruses.

The need for a fall back to natural, God given plant use is now.

This journey has taken me several years and untold hours. It was a gift that has been given to us by the endless hours by others devoted to improving the world, perhaps saving lives. Most of all it was a gift from God.

I have learned much, and understand that a hundred life times would not be enough to follow every path.

In my research I found over 300 native/naturalized plants in Florida that either can be used for food or herbal use.

What I have done is this: Go to one of the Herbal Sites and see what plants they have and what they are used for. Then go to one of the search engines and put in the scientific name of the herb, your state and usda map. If it is native/naturalized in your state then it will show a map. Next go to images for a picture. Then to someplace like Plants for a Future for details on what ailments, how to grow etc. Gain knowledge.

I try and buy the plants and or seeds at one of the many sites There can be no mistake in id if I find it in the wild, if you have grown i. Remember those herbal sites may well be taken down. If you chose to wild craft,do it conservatively.

Re: Dandelion Root Extract makes cancer cells "commit suicide"
About 15 years ago, I read someone's dream. They were told that the cure for AIDS would be found in the dandelion. I never forgot it.

Today, I saw this article:

Re: Dandelion Root Extract makes cancer cells "commit suicide"
Here is a nice Thread from 2008 on Dandelions:


The Health Benefits Of Dandelion
Thread: The Health Benefits Of Dandelions



Excerpts:

Suppose your doctor tells you, on your next visit, that he has just discovered a miracle drug which, when eaten as a part of your daily diet or taken as a beverage, could, depending on the peculiarities of your body chemistry:

prevent or cure liver diseases, such as hepatitis or jaundice;

act as a tonic and gentle diuretic to purify your blood, cleanse your system, dissolve kidney stones, and otherwise improve gastro-intestinal health;

assist in weight reduction;

cleanse your skin and eliminate acne;

improve your bowel function, working equally well to relieve both constipation and diarrhea;

prevent or lower high blood pressure;

prevent or cure anemia;

lower your serum cholesterol by as much as half;

eliminate or drastically reduce acid indigestion and gas buildup by cutting the heaviness of fatty foods;

prevent or cure various forms of cancer;

prevent or control diabetes mellitus;

and, at the same time, have no negative side effects and selectively act on only what ails you. If he gave you a prescription for this miracle medicine, would you use it religiously at first to solve whatever the problem is and then consistently for preventative body maintenance?

All the above curative functions, and more, have been attributed to one plant known to everyone, Taraxacum officinale, which means the "Official Remedy for Disorders." We call it the common dandelion. It is so well respected, in fact, that it appears in the U.S. National Formulatory, and in the Pharmacopeias of Hungary, Poland, Switzerland, and the Soviet Union. It is one of the top 6 herbs in the Chinese herbal medicine chest.

According to the USDA Bulletin #8, "Composition of Foods" (Haytowitz and Matthews 1984), dandelions rank in the top 4 green vegetables in overall nutritional value. Minnich, in "Gardening for Better Nutrition" ranks them, out of all vegetables, including grains, seeds and greens, as tied for 9th best. According to these data, dandelions are nature's richest green vegetable source of beta-carotene, from which Vitamin A is created, and the third richest source of Vitamin A of all foods, after cod-liver oil and beef liver! They also are particularly rich in fiber, potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and the B vitamins, thiamine and riboflavin, and are a good source of protein.


These figures represent only those published by the USDA. Studies in Russia and Eastern Europe by Gerasimova, Racz, Vogel, and Marei (Hobbs 1985) indicate that dandelion is also rich in micronutrients such as copper, cobalt, zinc, boron, and molybdenum, as well as Vitamin D.

Much of what dandelions purportedly do in promoting good health could result from nutritional richness alone. Vogel considers the sodium in dandelions important in reducing inflammations of the liver. Gerasimova, the Russian chemist who analyzed the dandelion for, among other things, trace minerals, stated that "dandelion [is] an example of a harmonious combination of trace elements, vitamins and other biologically active substances in ratios optimal for a human organism" (Hobbs 1985).



Beyond nutritional richness, however, are the active chemical constituents contained in dandelions which may have specific therapeutic effects on the body. These include, as reported by Hobbs (1985):

* Inulin, which converts to fructose in the presence of cold or hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Fructose forms glycogen in the liver without requiring insulin, resulting in a slower blood sugar rise, which makes it good for diabetics and hypoglycemics;

* Tof-CFr, a glucose polymer similar to lentinan, which Japanese researchers have found to act against cancer cells in laboratory mice; Lentinan is a yeast glucan (glucose polymer) that increases resistance against protozoal and viral infections.;

* Pectin, which is anti-diarrheal and also forms ionic complexes with metal ions, which probably contributes to dandelion's reputation as a blood and gastrointestinal detoxifying herb. Pectin is prescribed regularly in Russia to remove heavy metals and radioactive elements from body tissues. Pectin can also lower cholesterol and, combined with Vitamin C, can lower it even more. Dandelion is a good source of both Pectin and Vitamin C;

* Coumestrol, an estrogen mimic which possibly is responsible, at least in part, for stimulating milk flow and altering hormones;

* Apigenin and Luteolin, two flavonoid glycosides which have been demonstrated to have diuretic, anti-spasmodic, anti-oxidant and liver protecting actions and properties, and also to strengthen the heart and blood vessels. They also have anti-bacterial and anti-hypoglycemic properties, and, as estrogen mimics, may also stimulate milk production and alter hormones;

* Gallic Acid, which is anti-diarrheal and anti-bacterial;

* Linoleic and Linolenic Acid, which are essential fatty acids required by the body to produce prostaglandin which regulate blood pressure and such body processes as immune responses which suppress inflammation. These fatty acids can lower chronic inflammation, such as proliferative arthritis, regulate blood pressure and the menstrual cycle, and prevent platelet aggregation;

* Choline, which has been shown to help improve memory;

*Several Sesquiterpene compounds which are what make dandelions bitter. These may partly account for dandelions tonic effects on digestion, liver, spleen and gall bladder, and are highly anti-fungal;

* Several Triterpenes, which may contribute to bile or liver stimulation;

* Taraxasterol, which may contribute to liver and gall bladder health or to hormone altering.

These chemicals, individually, are not unique to dandelions, but the combination of them all in one plant, along with high levels of vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, proteins and fiber account for the many claims made regarding the plant.


USDA botanist Dr. James Duke (1989) suggests that a proper and appropriate "herbal soup", filled with "vitamins, minerals, fibers and a whole host of bioactive compounds," from which the body can selectively strain the compounds it needs to restore itself to health, will be more effective than synthetic medicines containing a "very select and specialized compound or two plus filler, usually non-nutritive." This is especially true if the "herbal soup", in the form of a potent potherb like dandelion, is a regular part of the diet so that the appropriate bioactive substances are present in the right amounts when the body needs them.

Re: Dandelion Root Extract makes cancer cells "commit suicide"
I drink dandelion root tea from time to time.
It's actaully fairly pleasant, so it's not something you have to "endure" to enjoy the benefits. It restores bile flow, so it aids digestion - a basic requirement for good general health. It's difficult to find the tea in root form, most suppliers make tea from the plant. It's the the root that is needed for medicinal effects.

I have noticed that the supermarkets are now selling dandelions withouth the rooots (unfortunately). I do wonder if they are GMO cultivated?

I have been trying to move to a raw food diet recently & been juicing dandelions with other veggies.

How to Make Dandelion Root Extract

Things You'll Need:
Trowel or shovel
Knife and cutting board or food processor
Large cooking pot (either non-metal or stainless steel)
Spring water
Cheesecloth
Vodka or vegetable glycerin
Dark 2 oz. or larger glass bottle with lid


1
Choose the right location and time for collecting dandelion roots. The healing benefits of plant roots are strongest in the fall, after the flowers are gone but before the first frost. Many gardeners with an interest in herbal healing grow dandelions as part of an herb garden. If you have not already started cultivating dandelions, look for plants in healthy soil, avoiding roadside growth.

2
Collect the roots. Using a trowel or small shovel, dig up the roots of the plant, being careful not to sever them. Place the roots in a covered basket or paper bag. You will want at least 4 oz. of root material to make your extract.

3
Clean your plant material. Separate the roots from the rest of the plant, and remove any dirt, stones or insects.

4
Chop the roots into pieces of about 1/4 inch using either a knife and cutting board or a food processor.

5
Process the roots on a stove to extract all the water-soluble material. Place 4 oz. of dandelion roots in 2 qt. of water and bring to a boil. Let the pot simmer until you have reduced the liquid to about one quart, then strain through a cheesecloth. Reserve the liquid. Add the roots to 1 qt. of water and again bring to a boil and reduce to 1 pt. Again, strain and save the liquid. Discard the boiled roots. Combine the liquid saved from the two boilings and reheat. Cook this down to about 2 oz. You will need to allow several hours for this process.

6
Preserve the dandelion extract. After permitting the boiled down extract to cool, funnel it into a dark glass bottle with a lid or stopper. Add either vegetable glycerin or vodka as a preservative so the organic matter does not spoil.

How to Make Dandelion Root Extract - 2

Step 1
Dig up the roots of several dandelions, until you have 4 oz. of root. Collect the roots in the spring, as fresh roots still have the plants' stored food within.


Step 2
Rinse and chop up the dandelion root into 1/4-inch pieces and put them into a pan with 2 qt. water and bring to a boil. Allow the water to boil down to 1 qt.

Step 3
Strain the water through a cloth to drain the extra liquid, then put in the remaining quart of water. Save the fluid that was drained. Cover and boil again until the water is down to half a pint. Strain the water again, combining the strained liquids.

Step 4
Pour the liquid into the pan and bring to a boil with the pan covered. Allow the liquid to boil for several hours until it is reduced to 2 oz.; allow the liquid to cool.

Step 5
Add the vegetable glycerin to the cooled liquid and place the extract into a dark stopper bottle. The extract will remain fresh for a year.
