The Cost of Cancer - Part V - Nigella Sativa - Black Cumin - Black Seeds


Black seeds also known as Nigella sativa, black cumin, kalonji seeds and haba al-barakah (Arabic phrase) have been used by people for thousands of years. Some associate associate black caraway with Nigella sativa, but they come from two different plants and should be avoided.  Kalonji seeds are found in India and haba al-barakah is an Arabic word and used in the Middle East mainly.  Black seeds are commonly used in the kitchen in many recipes.

Nigella sativa (black seeds), an annual  flowering plant grows to 20-30 cm tall, is native to Asia and the Middle East.  The flowers of this plant are very delicate and pale colored and white.  the seeds are used in Middle Eastern cooking, such as in their local breads. The seeds are also used by thousands for their natural healing abilities. 

Black Seed is considered to be the greatest healing herb of our time and it has been much neglected.  It is being used to strengthen the immune system, fight and irradiate pancreatic and other cancers, purify the blood and increase longevity.  Black seed was found in King Tut's tomb, proving the value of this herb to the kings.

  • Anti-hypertensive
  • Anti-Tumor

  • Anti-histamine
  • Strengthens the immune system

Prophecy of the Black Seeds


Prophet Mohammad was quoted as saying, "There is healing in Black Seed for all diseases except death." It is also believed that honey was part of the blessed seed treatment. It was part of the tradition to put some honey and ground whole black seeds in the palm of your right hand and lick it up with your tongue. In the days of Prophet Mohammad there was no black seed oil.

Pancreatic Cancer Research

In 2008 Jefferson Kimmel Cancer Center studied the effect of Nigella sativa on pancreatic cancer tumor cells and discovered that they were able to kill 62% of the cells. Future research by Jefferson showed that with the use of Nigella sativa, they were able to annihilate or cause cell death on 82% of tumor cells. In addition to the positive results on pancreatic cancer, they found more results worth noting. According to Hwyda Arafat, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of Surgery at Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University, "Nigella sativa helps treat a broad array of diseases, including some immune and inflammatory disorders. Previous studies also have shown anticancer activity in prostate and colon cancers, as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects."

The studies also showed potential positive results with prostate and colon cancers. Breast cancer has also been studied in separate research showing the ability to eradicate the cancer cells and provide chances for excellent health for many women worldwide. These results caused more and more places to research this simple black miraculous seed. The Middle East frequently studies Nigella sativa and recently they showed positive results for skin disease and gastric ulcers. In both studies, again Nigella sativa was found to be successful.

According to the researchers at Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences, "The results of this study revealed that fixed oil of Nigella sativa seeds might has potent bactericidal, antii-nflammatory, immune stimulating and/or antioxidant agents that improve healing of staphylococcalinfected skin in BALB/c mice, by inhibiting pathogenic growth and expansion, reducing inflammation and prevent tissue impairment. These effects provide scientific basis for the use of Nigella sativa in traditional medicine to treat skin infections and inflammations."

In November of this year, Naheed Amir, Amina Al Dhaheri, Najla Al Jaberi, Fatma Al Marzouqi, Salim MA Bastaki Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, UAE University, Al Ain, United Arab Emirates, studied the effect of Nigella sativa, onion and garlic on gastric ulcers and the results showed that Nigella sativa was just as potent as pharmaceutical medicines in the treatment of gastric ulcers. It should be noted that the researchers used raw Nigella sativa that was boiled. In closing the researchers stated, "Boiling did not affect the protective effect of Nigella sativa on gastric ulcers," thus proving that heating the seeds does nothing to its composition.


A Simple Inexpensive Remedy

A Woman is Cured of 3rd Stage Cancer Using Nigella Sativa:

Nigella Sativa (or black seed, as it is more commonly called) is a well-documented cure for many forms of cancer, including pancreatic cancer. Black seed is used to treat everything from migraines to cancer.

A woman in Yemen, suffering from 3rd stage cancer, sought a natural treatment. She was advised to take black seeds with honey three times a day, in addition to garlic and honey, also taken three times per day.

Her husband faithfully crushed the seeds and mixed them with honey. He also crushed the fresh garlic and mixed it with honey. After three months, her cancer disappeared. The woman has continued to use honey and garlic, even after the disappearance of her disease.


Yes this is all it takes to be well. This simple remedy has helped many to heal their cancer naturally and with a fraction of the cost of many of the larger protocols asking you to spend thousands of dollars, if not hundreds monthly.  There are no clinics to go to, no injections to take and no special exercises to do. You can follow this simple recipe and be well if you have faith.

There are no hidden costs or extras you must buy.  But there are choices and there are many grades of Nigella sativa. The best grade is with Mountain Rose Herbs and they are the best.  I highly suggest you use them if you can afford them.

Suggested diet items are not listed here like the Budwig Protocol, garlic which can be purchased at your local grocers and fruits and vegetables.  A Juicer is suggested also to juice your veggies and fruits.  Juicing cleans out your whole system and rids the body of toxins. All my protocols have a juicer posted.




Faith Healing has been the Basis of Many Remedies

Faith healing and its belief means that you have sought to follow the ways of God and put your  complete faith in his ultimate healing.  If you have no faith in the cure, then the cure just may not work at all.  First by understanding the reason why it works, learn how to use the medicine and then learn how to improve your immune system, exercise and the right diet.  Taking Nigella sativa is necessary even after your cancer is gone. 

I personally have seen miracles come my way and before beginning any routine I pray and ask for Allah's guidance.  Each time he has shown me the correct procedure.  I believe that there is a cure for any illness I had and I follow His guidance.  

How to Heal Yourself


When you think of healing yourself naturally think of the dead and the very sick.  Think of those who passed on and did not have the ability to know what you know today.  Years ago when my sister and father died of brain cancer, I knew nothing about Nigella sativa.  They like many in my family, more than 15, were at the mercy of their own doctors who filled them with chemotherapy and pharmaceutical drugs. 

This is a prescription for death.  I can hear the whispers now as some are healed by chemo.  The news is that 1 out of 10 people are saved by chemo, but that it is indeed a death trap, in my opinion. 

According to The McGill Cancer Center in Canada, 91 percent of oncologists surveyed indicated that "all chemotherapy programs are unacceptable to them and their family members." Instead of helping to treat cancer, chemotherapy destroys the only thing that even has a chance at preventing it: the immune system.

Funny how doctors are asking us to "Trust them" and yet they are referring their families to other measures when it comes to cancer.  Ninety-one percent claim it is not acceptable?  Well maybe they are using Nigella sativa which is acceptable.

A Sensible Cancer Diet


There are about as many diets for cancer available as there are types of cancer.  Choosing a perfect diet would depend on a few things.  Being able to get the items needed, such as good quality flax oil or raw goats yogurt for the Budwig diet or organic grapes for the grape cure.
Keep in mind that your body needs to be pure and clean, so having the right ingredients to eat is imperative.  If you cannot get good quality flax oil and not one your local herbalist has sitting on his shelf for the last year and a half, but one that is freshly cold pressed in a dark bottle that has been refrigerated.

According to Mike Adams of Natural News.com, there are some basic guidelines when choosing a healthy cancer diet.  First you must avoid all: enriched bleached flour, white rice, white pastas and other white foods.  Also avoid all sugars, sucrose and high-fructose corn syrup.

Foods to avoid are hydrogenated oils, trans fats and foods containing nitrates, such as processed meats.  Processed meats include bacon, luncheon meats, hot dogs, doughnuts, French fries, crackers, chips and cookies.  Many of these foods are made with hydrogenated oils and trans fats.

Eat foods high in vitamin C, such as cabbage, red and green hot chili peppers, green bell peppers, thyme, parsley, kale, mustard greens, garden cress, broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels' sprouts.  Fruits high in vitamin C are guavas, kiwis, papayas, oranges, tangerines and strawberries.

Other things Mike suggests to do is to get plenty of sunshine and low to moderate exercise.  Oxygenate your body and do not let the cancer survive.  It is also advised to have your vitamin D levels checked and if you are deficient as many are, supplement and beat this disease. If you go outside wear a wide brim hat, as this will protect you from the sun's strongest rays. 

Also, drink plenty of filtered water, not tap water.  Omega 3's are also important for cancer patients.  You can get this if you are following the Budwig diet plan or taking the Budwig mixture twice a day, like I suggest.

Suggested Supplementation

Here are some supplements suggested by an authority on cancer.  He says to use chapparal and states it is the best herb for cancer along with pau d' arco, nettles, olive leaf, dulse, chagas, ashwagandha and suma.  Androghaphis is especially good for blood and lymphatic cancers.

These are suggestions and not part of the Prophetic healing.  It is up to each individual how they proceed.

Cleansing the Body 

Cleaning the body is very important if you have cancer.  You cannot take black seed daily and eat like a pig the rest of the week.  It is important to go on a bowel cleansing, take the right supplements and eat a healthy diet.  Rebounding on a mini-trampoline is the best form of exercise for indoors.  For outside, walking is the best exercise and make sure you do not over tire yourself. 

It is essential that you have one hour of sunshine daily also.  If you have skin cancer, you will want to supplement your diet with vitamin D and stay indoors.  If you do go outside for sunshine, as suggested by Dr. Johanna Budwig, then do not sun bathe between the hours of 10 AM to 2 PM, when the sun is the hottest and does the most damage.

If you are using olive oil for treatment of your cancer or disease, do not go out with the olive oil, as it will turn your skin brown or dark, ego speaking here. 

There are many bowel cleansings available, but the natural ones are the best in my opinion.  Twice a year I do the watermelon cleanse and it is one of the best in my opinion.  It is easy to do and the cost is very little.  All you do is buy 3 large watermelons and eat one a day.  You eat nothing, but watermelon and it will cleanse you of everything.  By the end of the three days, you will hate watermelon though, lol.

This diet, cleansing and healing are all part of my book on Holistic Cancer Healing.  I can only suggest the basics in this mini course.  I cannot emphasize enough that all cancers are different and not one cancer can be treated the same. Do your basics, watch your diet, get plenty of sun, follow your protocol for black seed and eat your garlic.  If you are Muslim listen to Quran daily and if you are not read your bible daily.  Faith in God is the best way to prepare for the next life and be whole again.
