Could This Humble Black Seed Be the Next Penicillin?
Found in King Tut's tomb around 1300 BC as a sacred item to enjoy in the afterlife, Black Cumin (Nigella sativa) seeds have been used for over 3000 years. Among ancient Egyptians, Cleopatra is said to have used black seed oil for beautiful hair and skin.
Physicians in the time of the Pharaohs also used black seed as a remedy for colds, headaches, digestive disorders, toothaches, infections, inflammatory disorders and allergies.
The earliest written reference to black seed is in the Bible, in the book of Isaiah in the Old Testament.
The prophet Muhammad is recorded as saying, "Hold on to the use of the black seed for indeed it has a remedy for every disease except death."
While that may seem to be quite the tall order, black cumin seed does in fact have remarkable healing and health properties that make it one of the most powerful medicinal plants known to man.
Hippocrates himself, the first true doctor, is said to have used it extensively in his medical clinic in Greece (400 BC), regarding nigella sativa as a valuable remedy in hepatic (liver) and digestive disorders.
Could Black Cumin Seed be a Cure-All?
Found in all Mediterranean countries, north Africa and most of Asia, black cuminseed has been referred to as the healer of healers for numerous conditions.
Many of black cumin's traditionally ascribed health benefits have been thoroughly confirmed in the biomedical literature. In fact, in the past 50 years, there have been hundreds of published studies referencing it.
There are well over 40 health conditions from dandruff to diabetes that may be benefited from the use of this miracle of Mother Nature, including many distinct pharmacological actions:
- Analgesic (pain reducer)
- Gluconeogenesis inhibitor (blood sugar)
- Hepatoprotective (liver protecting)
- Insulin sensitizing (diabetes)
- Interferon inducer (immune system)
- Leukotriene Antagonist
- Renoprotective (kidney protecting)
- Tumor necrosis factor alpha inhibitor
While it is remarkable that this humble seed has the ability to positively modulate so many different biological pathways, this is actually a rather common occurrence among traditional plant medicines used for millenia in the Middle and Far East, that we are only just now discovering in the West for our benefit.
Whatever ailment you are struggling with, a teaspoon a day of black seed oil could very well be the miracle you have been waiting for, and the results come very quickly.
Keep in mind black cumin seed oil is a nutritionally potent food, not a cure-all or miracle drug. It is safe for oral or topical use in small amounts. Anyone with a medical condition or pregnant/nursing should check with a doctor before using this or any substance.
"Let Food Be Thy Medicine and Medicine Be Thy Food"
-Hippocrates, 431 BC
This statement was the foundation of Hippocrates' medical practice 2400 years ago. Considered to be the father of medicine, was he talking about black cuminseeds when he uttered this most profound directive? We think so.
Hippocrates believed all ailments originated in the stomach - in the gut. With over 70% of our immune tissue located in our digestive tract, it's no wonder Hippocrates used black cumin seeds as a remedy.
Herbs, nuts, seeds, mushrooms, fungal roots and even weeds (dandelions have a multitude of health benefits) are now the new Laboratory of Life driving a new era of medicine and healing.
