Moringa Leaves and its value in Cancer

Hi Friends,

There are many factors that contribute to the development of cancer: genetics, your job, your environment, your lifestyle habits such as smoking or drinking excessively, diet, exercise habits, immune system function, endocrine function, stress, and attitude. So all of these play a part in your health or lack of health. Some people are born with a real bad deck of cards genetically. But improving these factors will extend your life or extend the quality of your life. Some of these factors such as diet, exercise, smoking, and drinking we do have power over. We can make better choices that help us in our health goals. So look at the factors above to see which ones you can improve on. You have to really want better health enough to work on changing those bad habits.

Attitude and Longevity

Attitude may be one of the hardest to change in this grim economy. Often it is how you look at things. When we Moved to Mina, Nevada I hated it. I went from green to desert. All my dreams and goals for growing Moringa trees had to be altered and evaluated. It took me a month to see the beauty in the area and in our new life. I cried, screamed, and asked God why he sent us to this place. He was silent because he knew I was not ready to listen at that point. I needed an attitude adjustment. We are now here 6 months. It is a quiet life in this remote area. We do have lots of nice neighbors. There are almost no rules except to respect your neighbors rights and privacy. We have a huge area with a 20 by 60 shed that houses tools, our stored boxed, hay, area with light panels in the roof for my plants, and again no rules. We go shopping twice a month and learn to be self reliant when we need something we don't have. I enjoy the beauty of the peace and lack of traffic. I see the beauty now rather than the lack of services at times. We do have internet that is fast which is pretty important. So my attitude now is much better for my health and longevity. My positive attitude now helps my immune function and thyroid function. We may not be rich financially but we are rich in our heart. You realize how much you don't need when you have to drive 44 miles to buy it.

Moringa Leaves are just one part of a lifestyle that stimulates health. Moringa is part of an enriched organic diet leading to better health. That is why Ayurvedic doctors use it to prevent disease and malnutrition. There are some studies that are showing that Moringa does indeed have some remarkable properties.

Valuable Research on The Positive Effects on Moringa and Healing

The Alternative Action For African Development and Church World Services tested the power of Moringa Leaves with women who were pregnant or breast feeding and dying from starvation. The women tested recovered from their anemic states giving birth to healthier babies. The use of Moringa leaves improved the babies birth weights and health. You cannot blame the 'placebo affect' on this. Babies in the womb respond to nutrition or lack of nutrition. These babies responded to the addition of Moringa leaf powder with healthier weights and vigor. These babies were born healthier. The mothers produced a greater amount of breast milk that was of higher quality than women who were not given the Moringa leaves.

Moringa Leaves and Its Effect on HIV Patients

When projects gave Moringa leaves to weak HIV patients, they gained weight and strength. They were able to do more for themselves and the other HIV patients. It enhanced their ability to fight off the infections that come with the disease. They lived longer and with more quality because of their enhanced diet with Moringa leaves.

So Moringa will help a patient with cancer or serious disease to fight that disease. It will help their immune function and other systems to fight back. If it involves wasting away and losing weight, it will help counteract that.

In one research paper from India concludes that Moringa Leaves contain, "For example, specific components of Moringa preparations that have been reported to have hypo-tensive, anticancer, and antibacterial activity include 4-(4'-O-acetyl-α-L-rhamnopyranosyloxy)benzyl isothiocy-anate [1], 4-(α-L-rhamnopyranosyloxy)benzyl isothiocy-anate>".

It has been found useful in treating Prostate cancer, and with female cancers. There will be many more research studies on Moringa leaves in the future. Research is already proving what Ayurvedic doctors have known for hundreds of years.

How Moringa Helps Diabetes Patients


We have been busy building our colony rabbit pen, moving the baby chicks out to their new home in our shed, and finishing their outside chicken yard for the future. These pens are completely enclosed since we have many birds of prey including crows.

Buy Exceptional Moringa leaf bulk powder, capsules, trees, and seeds here.

Our rabbits have a 10 by 20 space with cages for warmth. If they wish to hang out outside, they have a tree stump path up to their cages. The tree stumps give them exercise and something to do along with some cat toys.  They are litter trained so their cage area stayed clean. The material in the litter boxes is potting mix. Once it is enhanced with their manure, it gets taken out to the garden to amend the soil or to the red worms I am raising. The rabbits have room to kick up their feet. I have room to sit in there and just enjoy them. Not everyone would devote a carport to their rabbits but the carport was  inconvenient to use for our cars. The carport given them protection from the elements of this harsh climate. It had built in windows and and three complete walls which saved a lot of building time and money.

The picture below is the chicks inside pen where they will roost, come in to lay eggs, and eat. Right now they have a light and closed off area for warmth at night. Later on when they are bigger they will go out a door cut into the wall that leads into their huge chicken yard. Part of it has shade and half has sun to give them the elements to be healthy.

The yard is very spacious since we have the room. It will have 400 sq feet for the 28 chicks we bought. They will all be around 5 to 6 pounds when fully grown. I believe when at all possible to give animals space so they can live happily.

The Moringa Trees are doing well in our shed with some panels in the roof that let in warmth and sun. Even though the shed gets down to the low 40's, it is warm in the day and so the trees are still growing. It is extending their time to keep their leaves.

Moringa Leaves and Diabetes:

Many people have written me about using Moringa to control diabetes. There are two reasons why Moringa would help stabilize glucose. One of them being the amazing nutrition in the leaves. Many people with diabetes do not eat enough vegetables, salads, fiber, and high quality food. Moringa improves their nutrition which helps to build their health up. In India, Ayurvedic doctors use Moringa leaves to help prevent disease and improve nutrition for all age groups. It is especially great for those who are malnurished with compromised health and immune systems. Is there any research to back up its apparent positive effect on diabetes?

Several research projects using rats have shown that Moringa leaf powder contains polyphenols that have the effect of lowering sugar levels. Moringa also delays gastric emptying by the stomach which is important for the control of diabetes. If you wish to read one of these articles here is a link to the original research, Research article on Moringa and diabetes . I will give you links to new research as I find it. 

There are quite a few research studies done in India. Moringa has been tested over hundreds of years by the Native people in India. Moringa is used by doctors in India. These doctors are educated just like our doctors except they use a combination of herbs and modern medicine together to give their patients the best of both worlds. Doctors from India are very skilled and effective. In El Centro, Ca where I used to live, we had a number of doctors from India. I took my daughter to one and I got treatment from another. I was impressed with the time they, themselves, spent with us. It was not the doctors assistant who took our patient history but the doctor himself. He listened, asked questions, conducted the exam and then made a diagnosis. They examined all of you for clues into your health problem including the mouth and tongue. There are all sorts of signs the body gives off when ill. These signs may effect your skin, hair, hands, fingernails, and tongue. They are great.

Well this is all for now.....Have a blessed week all of you.

I do not sell Moringa products as of Sept, 2016. I am working on a project that demands an unbiased viewpoint.
