We have indexed salient research, available to view on GreenMedInfo.com on our Black Seed (Nigella Sativa) page, on well over 40 health conditions that may be benefited from the use of the herb, including over 20 distinct pharmacological actions it expresses, such as:

There are tens of thousands of other substances that have already been researched, with hundreds of thousands of studies supporting their medicinal value (MEDLINE, whence our study abstracts come, has over 600,000 studies classified as related to Complementary and Alternative Medicine).

Take turmeric, for example. We have identified research indicating its value in over 600 health conditions, while also expressing over 160 different potentially beneficial pharmacological actions. You can view the quick summary of over 1500 studies we have summarized on our Turmeric Research page, which includes an explorative video on turmeric.

This, of course, should help folks realize how voluminous the supportive literature indicating the medicinal value of natural substances, such as turmeric and black seed, really is.

Black seed has been researched for very specific health conditions. Some of the most compelling applications include:

Type 2 Diabetes: Two grams of black seed a day resulted in reduced fasting glucose, decreased insulin resistance, increased beta-cell function, and reduced glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in human subjects.[ii]

Colon Cancer: Cell studies have found that black seed extract compares favorably to the chemoagent 5-fluoruracil in the suppression of colon cancer growth, but with a far higher safety profile.[x] Animal research has found that black seed oil has significant inhibitory effects against colon cancer in rats, without observable side effects.[xi]
MRSA: Black seed has anti-bacterial activity against clinical isolates of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus.[xii]

This super-saturated state of the seed, where life condenses itself down into an intensely miniaturized holographic fragment of itself, promising the formation of future worlds within itself, is the very emblem of life’s immense and immortal power.

If we understand the true nature of the seed, how much life (past, present and future) is contained within it, it will not seem so far-fetched that it is capable of conquering antibiotic resistant bacteria, healing the body from chemical weapons poisoning, or stimulate the regeneration of dying insulin-producing beta cells in the diabetic, to name but only a fraction of black seed’s experimentally-confirmed powers.

HEALTH TIP:
A remarkable alternative cancer treatment was devised by a German biochemist, Dr. Johanna Budwig, also a seven time Nobel nominee. Her most important medical contributions involved her research into the roles of essential fatty acids (EFAs). In order to mass produce and distribute foods high in oils, food manufacturers deliberately alter the chemical composition of the oils, which give

s them longer shelf lives. In the 1950’s, she proved that these chemically-altered, hydrogenated fats (which she called “pseudo” fats) are rigid fats which stick to the cell membranes, thus causing them to malfunction.Dr. Budwig believed that these hydrogenated, processed fats and oils shut down the electrical field of the cells and make us susceptible to chronic and terminal diseases, since the beneficial oxidase ferments are destroyed by heating or boiling. She also demonstrated that the absence of essential unsaturated fats is responsible for the production of oxidase, which induces cancer growth and causes many other chronic disorders. She came to believe that cancer was not the result of too much cell growth, but defective cell growth (i.e., cell division), caused by the combination of too much “pseudo” fats and too few healthy fats in the cell membrane.But exactly what happens to fats when they are processed? In healthy fats there is a vital electron cloud which enables the fat to bind with oxygen. Healthy, oxygenated fats are capable of binding with protein and in the process become water-soluble. This water solubility is vital to all growth processes, cell damage restoration, cell renewal, brain and nerve functions, sensory nerve functions, and energy development. In fact, the entire basis of our energy production is based on lipid metabolism. Hydrogenation destroys the vital electron cloud and as a result, these “pseudo” fats can no longer bind with oxygen or with protein. These fats end up blocking circulation, damaging the heart, inhibiting cell renewal, and impeding the free flow of blood and lymph. You might want to remember this fact the next time you want to buy some margarine or fried foods, since both typically contain these harmful fats.Budwig understood that chronic disease is a result of a body lacking EFAs, which are full of electrons and bind to oxygen and proteins. When they are absorbed into the cell wall, they pull oxygen into the cell. And when bound to sulfur-based proteins, they become water-soluble. This is the theory behind the Budwig Diet: the use of oxygen in the organism can be stimulated by lipoproteins (sulfur-rich proteins and linoleic acid). The Budwig Diet (a blend of flaxseed oil and cottage cheese) has been an integral part in the recovery of literally thousands of cancer patients. You simply mix one cup of organic cottage cheese with two to three tablespoons of flaxseed oil. Be sure to blend them together and let them sit for several minutes. This will convert the oil-soluble omega-3 into water-soluble omega-3. It is also a good idea to grind fresh flax seeds and add to the mixture. It is important to note that neither foods rich in EFAs nor sulfur-rich proteins alone will accomplish these tasks. This is because the oils must first bind to the proteins before oxygen can be bound and before the body can assimilate the combination. Thanks to the tireless work of Dr. Budwig we now know that electron-rich fats interact with sulfur-rich proteins to bind oxygen and promote aerobic metabolism which restores health.
