Astragalus stops the spread of cancers known to respond to gene p53, a tumor suppressing gene that keeps defective cells from multiplying. Studies also show that this herb increases the activity of lymphokine-activated killer (LAK)cells. Astragalus is effective in preventing depleation of white blood cells during chemotherapy.
Additional benefits of astragalus include: strengthening the immune system, increasing metabolic activity, counteracting fatigue and infections, and strengthening digestion. It is also used for conditions such as angina, atherosclerosis, congestive heart failure, heart attack, bladder infections, burns, colds, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, infertility, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and myasthenia gravis.

Curcumin, one of the many constituents of turmeric root, is very beneficial in both the prevention and treatment of many types of cancer including but not limited to leukemia, colorectal cancer, and skin cancers. It can reduce chemically induced mouth and tongue cancers by up to 90 percent. It aids in the recovery of cancer by stimulating the immune system, and helps to prevent certain cancers by inhibiting the actions of the p450 enzyme which cause enviromental toxins to become carcinogenic. clinical testing has shown curcumin to increase survival rates in people with melanoma and inhibit the spread of melanoma to the lungs. It can also keep tumors from spreading throughout the body by curtailing the activity of platelet-activating factor (PAF).
Additional health conditions that benefit from turmeric include: arthritis, atherosclerosis, bursitis,carpal tunnel syndrome, cataracts, cirrhosis of the liver, eczema, endometriosis, gallstones, halitosis, heart attack, HIV/AIDS, ingestion, pain, periodontal disease, and tendinitis.
Research has discovered a substance in burdock root capable of reducing cell mutation, in either the absence or presence of metabolic activation. It purifies the blood and eliminates toxic waste from the body, and is often used by herbalists to act against cancer.
Other health conditions that burdock benefit are: arthritis, boils, dandruff, diabetes, eczema, gout, liver disease, and sciatica.
