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.
"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,
ovarian, lung, and
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
radiation. Experts say it may ease some side effects, like a
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.
