ASHWAGANDHA

Who Knew?  I am taking a new medication for ovarian cancer, a follow-up treatment, called a PARP Inhibitor, so I wanted to make sure that ashwagandha didn't interfere with it.  What I found out was in fact that I probably should be taking it, and should have/could have been taking it during chemo last year to relieve some of the side effects. 

Web MD:

"Several studies have shown ashwagandha has compounds that may help fight certain types of cancer. Researchers aren’t sure how, but extracts in the herb seem to limit the activity of cancer cells in breast, colon, prostate, ovarian, lung, and brain cancers. It does the same for thyroid, gastrointestinal, cervix, and skin (melanoma) cancers. Ashwagandha is considered safe to use with traditional cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation. Experts say it may ease some side effects, like a weak immune system. But most of these studies have been done on cancer cells or animals with cancer."


It doesn't make any sense that more people don't know about this stuff.  Anxiety, thyroid, depression, insomnia, mood, cancer, hormones, to name a few,  it pretty much helps them all. To think a simple berry plant that's been around for 1,000's of years.  

God is good.
