Lung cancer is one of the most widely spread cancers in the world. The reason is that nowadays the air we breathe is more and more toxic and in time, this toxicity builds up in the body and causes disease. In addition, smoking, exposure to highly toxic substances at work, or on a regular basis, and a poor diet that doesn’t nourish the body all contribute to these lung cancers. Cancers also have an emotional trigger to them, but we will discuss this later on. So, what causes lung cancer?
The Risk Factors in Lung Cancer
- Smoking (not tobacco per se, but the other 600 toxic substances that are added to the mix that also create the addiction such as tar and nicotine);
- Toxic Substances (asbestos, iron oxide, uranium, radon, aromatic polycyclic hydrocarbons such as benzopyrene, naphthalene, smoke and dust, body sprays and cosmetics, etc);
- Pollution (lung and larynx cancers are the most frequent cancers in highly industrialized countries);
- Prescription Drugs (such as sulfonamides, nitrofurantoin, amiodarone, bleomycin, infliximab, methotrexate, and etanercept);
- Poor Diet (processed foods, animal protein abuse, white sugar, and white flour that are nutrient-poor and increase the acidic environment in the body, the ideal habitat for malignant cells to grow and create disease);
- Lack of Vitamin A (a study conducted by a Norwegian scientist, Dr. Bjelke showed that people who consume reduced amounts of Vitamin A on a regular basis have double the risk of developing lung cancer; also, people who have smoked have 5 times higher chances of developing lung cancer if their diet consisted of low levels of Vitamin A);
- Low Selenium (This is a rare mineral mostly found in whole cereals; a diet rich in selenium reduces the risk of lung, larynx, colon, and prostate cancers);
- Sedentarism (Physical exercise is the best treatment for any condition because it is a fantastic stimulus for the immune system; studies have shown that burning 2500 calories per week through physical exercise lowers the risk of lung and larynx cancers by 38-61%).

7. Maria Treben’s Herbal Remedy for Lung Cancer
Austrian last century biologist, Maria Treben has had a tremendous contribution to promoting naturopathy around the world. Her herbal remedies have helped millions of patients suffering from various chronic conditions. She accounts in her book, “Health Through God’s Pharmacy” the time when she met 2 hikers, husband, and wife, on a trip from Weissenbachtal to Postalm.
The man told her how he healed himself from lung cancer by chewing on calamus root (Acorus calamus) and drinking yarrow tea (Achilea millefolium) all day, as this is something he heard it would work. Soon after, her mother got really sick, and the diagnostic didn’t sound very good: bowel cancer. She then heard over the radio that cold calamus maceration heals any stomach and bowel conditions. She convinced her now hopeless mother to follow the remedy and in 14 days of drinking this tea, her mother was completely free of pain and feeling amazing. Ever since Maria Treben has used calamus root to cure cancers and her results were amazing, as she declared.
The herbs that she considered to be the most potent for lung cancer, as she mentions in her books, are yarrow and calamus. According to her research, yarrow is a fantastic hemostatic for lung hemorrhages and can heal lung cancer, when coupled with calamus root.

Calamus & Horsetail, The Remedies for Lung Cancer
This is the herbal remedy she recommends for lung cancer in her book. Chew on calamus root throughout the day and drink 4 cups of yarrow tea a day in small sips, and 2 cups of horsetail tea, one first thing in the morning and the other one in the evening, 30 minutes before dinner. To prepare the yarrow tea, scald 1 full tsp of the plant in 1 cup of hot water for a few minutes. When chewing on the calamus root, swallow the secreted saliva with a bit of yarrow tea and spit out the bits of roots.
Maria Treben’s Steamed Horsetail Remedy for Lung Cancer
In case of severe pain, apply horsetail steam compress over the lungs or on the back of the. Herbal Swedish compresses are also great in this situation. Keep the compress on overnight. Take two handfuls of dried horsetail and put them in a sieve over a pot of boiling water, on bain-marie.
- Put the soaked, hot and steaming horsetail in a piece of cheesecloth to make a poultice and apply it to where the pain radiates.
- In case the pain is excruciating, make 3 compresses a day, one in the morning, one in the afternoon (these ones you can leave on for 2 hours), and the last one overnight.
- You may use the same steamed herbs 3-4 times but reheat/steam them with every use.
- It is important to stay well tucked in bed to induce sweating.
Maria Treben confirmed that the steamed horsetail compresses have proven to be the most effective in the case of malignant tumors, no matter their type.
How to Juice for Lung Cancer
The best vegetables to juice for lung cancer are carrots, beetroot, and cabbage.
If you can’t procure them, there are other plants and veggies that are wonderful for juicing. If you can make use of organic or untreated vegetables for your juice, the better. During the juicing, also drink plenty of herbal teas and plant powders, clay, or vegetable charcoal.
- Drink 1 cup of juice every 2/2.5 hours, consuming around 1.5-2.5 l of fresh juice every day.
- Follow the juicing treatment for 15-20 days at first.
However, if you can continue it, the longer the better. After finishing the juicing, continue eating a clean diet consisting of raw fruits and vegetables mostly and you’ll help the body recover even faster.
Juicing for Lung Cancer – Fruits & Veggies
Beetroot (start with 1.2 cups per day and increase the amount to 250-500 ml per day). Beetroot has antitumor and anti cytostatic properties, and it acts as a natural barrier against cancer cell growth. This juice is considered one of the best anti-cancer remedies, leukemia especially.
Nettle (1-2 cups/day). Nettle juice is amazing against lung cancer because it acts as a blood cleanser. It blocks the free radicals by feeding the body with minerals and vitamins and has powerful anti-cancer properties.
Carrot (1-2 cups/day) – Carrots are filled with beta carotene and Vitamin A, the exact 2 elements you need to fight lung cancer. Beta carotene (the substance that gives carrots the orange coloring) is a very powerful antioxidant while Vitamin A, as we mentioned earlier, has been confirmed to reduce the risk of cancer and fight it off.
Cabbage (1-2 cups/day) – Cabbage contains a load of strong anticancer and it also acts as a gastric bandage, preventing the gastric linen from developing ulcers. It may give you bloating, constipation, or stomach pain but this is normal. If these symptoms don’t stop after 5 days of juicing, pause for 1 day, and then continue drinking cabbage juice.
Green Barley (1-2 cups/day – green barley powder is also effective) – Green barley contains the highest amount of SOD (superoxide-dismutaza), one of the most powerful enzymes known to stop the degenerative processes caused by free radicals. In addition to this, green barley is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and other elements.
Grape (1-2 cups/day – black or red grapes) – Grape juice contains powerful anticancer substances, such as ellagic acids, quercetin, resveratrol, and selenium. Hence, this juice is a strong cancer remedy because it literally dissolves the malignant tissue.
Ribwort Plantain (1 cup/day) – This plant is loaded with allantoin, an antitumoral substance with healing properties. This substance is also found in common comfrey. Plantago helps fight any infections in the body.
Rose Hip Berries (1-2 cups/day) – Rosehip berries are amongst the fruits that contain the most Vitamin C in the world. They also contain provitamin A, PP, and other trace minerals. Use ripe rose hips that you can pick in late autumn. Blend the berries and then strain the juice using a cheesecloth to extract most of it. You can add honey to this juice or drink it as it is.
Sea Buckthorn (1-2 cups/day) – These berries are loaded in beta carotene, Vitamin C, and E, some of the most powerful natural antioxidants.
Lemon (the juice from 2-3 lemons/day) – Lemon juice activates the white blood cells, and they also make a great tonic for the nervous system. It has loads of Vitamin C and other substances (lactone and coumarin) that make it a natural tumor cleanser.
Spinach (1 cup/day) – Lutein, a substance in spinach is as powerful an antioxidant as beta carotene. It is amazing against lung cancer and tumors in general.
We recommend a slow juicer that masticates the fruits and veggies and doesn’t mince them at a very high speed. I personally have an Omega Vert slow juicer that I bought over 10 years now and still going strong.
Foods that Can Cause Lung Cancer
The best diet that a patient diagnosed with lung cancer should follow is foods that don’t feed the cancerous cells, but the ones that starve them to death. Yes, cancer is an abnormal growth of malignant cells, and like all body cells, they die through starvation. This is why a diet change is of paramount importance when suffering from a chronic condition such as lung cancer.
A diet rich in animal proteins can favor cancer, especially when the meat is of poor quality (injected with hormones and the animal fed with genetically modified organisms). Most sausages and deli you find in supermarkets contain a substance called nitrosamine. This is among the few substances in the world proven by scientific research to be cancerogenic.
A lab study showed that when administered in a larger dose to lab rats, within precisely 14 days they developed liver cancer. All major oncology research states that animal protein favors cancer and whenever someone gets chronically sick most regimens recommend excluding or reducing meat. The same with sugar.
Animal Proteins & Sugar Can Lead to Lung Cancer
White sugar is the 2nd most dangerous “food” that can lead to cancer. Sugar kills good gut bacteria and causes inflammation throughout the body. It also stimulates the production of insulin in the blood flow, which favors rapid cellular growth. Thirdly, sugar boosts the level of estrogens, automatically unbalancing the estrogen and progesterone ratio. This can lead to genital cancer in women.
Sugar is also among the main cause of yeast infection and candida, polycystic ovaries, and even acne. Just as with smoking, it takes 20-30 years to notice the life-damaging consequences of consuming white sugar. Sugar is a silent killer. Recent studies show that sugar is more addictive than cocaine, and seeing how many people abuse it every day, we can all agree it’s true.
Besides animal protein and white sugar, GMOs, coffee, alcohol, white flour, and highly-processed foods (filled with additives) create acidosis in the body. It is believed that chronic acidosis is a root cause in malignization. They are also loaded with toxic waste that builds up over time and creates a perfect environment for cancers.
That’s why when treating cancer 50% of the treatment is a clean and healthy diet and the other 50% is the treatment per se.
Healing Foods to Eat for Lung Cancer
On the other hand, there are some amazing foods that you can eat as medicine for cancer. Here are the healthiest foods you can eat if you suffer from lung cancer or any other chronic disease.
- Have plenty of vegetables and fruits (wild berries are the best), as well as whole cereals (barley and oat flakes) and raw nuts and seeds (walnuts, almonds, sesame, sunflower, pumpkin, etc).
Did you know that apricot kernels have the highest content of Vitamin B17, known as the anti-cancer vitamin? This vitamin, also known as amygdalin, is recommended for breast and lung cancers in a month-long cure. You may have up to 5 seeds per day. Pause for 2 weeks and resume.
Mushrooms are a great source of vegetal protein and are also recommended in an anti-cancer diet. Plant-based oil is also great: avocado, olive oil, coconut oils, etc.
Wild-caught salmon (mackerel or herring too) is also a great source of protein and healthy fats (Omega 3) that your body needs to get strong. Garlic, onion cabbage, and broccoli should not be excluded from your diet, on the contrary.
Onion and garlic are packed with antimicrobial and antitumor substances that have a powerful action on the lungs and the entire respiratory tract. If you wish to keep cold away all winter season, eat a raw onion per day and you’ll be safe.
Sprouted greens are also amazing against lung cancer. You can add 3-4 sprout wheat/broccoli to your salads and make them more powerful and potent. Sprouted wheat germs in particular have a powerful action in restoring disease-affected lungs.
Beehive produce is also great anti-cancer food. Increase the potency of honey with horseradish and cinnamon. You can make this simple recipe at home. Mix 10 tbsp of grated horseradish with 20 tbsp of high-quality honey (linden or fir are the best). Let the ingredients macerate for 3-4 days. Have 2 tsp, 4 times per day in a 30-days long cure. Pause for 14 days and resume. You can also add 20 tsp of organic cinnamon to the mix to make it more powerful.
Almond Milk Recipe for Lung Cancer
Make your own almond milk to replace cow milk or any other animal milk that may cause further inflammation. To prepare this milk at home, you need 12 raw almonds, 1 tbsp ground flax seeds, 1 tsp honey (if you suffer from diabetes skip the honey), 1 banana or 1 apple (optional), and 300 ml of warm water.
- Blend the almonds with a bit of water.
- Then add the rest of the water to the blender with the rest of the ingredients.
- Continue blending until you obtain a smooth drink.
- You can have 1-2 cups of this delicious and healthy drink a day.
This is both a treat as well as a remedy for lung cancer.
Best Natural Supplements for Lung Cancer
Cleans the lungs and helps us assimilate nutrients from the foods we eat. In addition, Omega 3 aids the body in eliminating metabolic residue.
This rare mineral is found in whole cereals, like the wheat growing in North and South Dakota, where the soil is rich in selenium. A diet rich in selenium (200-400 mg/day) reduces the risk of lung, larynx, colon, and prostate cancers.
Sea Buckthorn Oil
This oil contains a great many antioxidants and immune-boosting elements, such as tocopherols, alfa and beta carotenoids, lycopene, zeaxanthin, and cryptoxanthin. It has 10 times the beta carotene content you find in carrots. You can take 50 drops of sea buckthorn oil, 2 times a day with a small piece of dried bread.
It is derived from grape seeds and it’s one of the most powerful antioxidants out there. Resveratrol works as a cytostatic agent in lung cancers.
Rosehip & Sea Buckthorn Powder
Both rich in Vitamin C and beta carotene, these superfoods are a valuable supplement in any malignant tumors. Grind the dried berries and take 2×2 tbsp/day (children 2×2 tsp/day). Prepare the minimum quantity required for a week’s time and keep the powders in a dark-colored jar in a dark place. They are most potent when you consume them right after grinding them, that’s why it is best to make small batches of this powder mix.
Has a direct action on macrophages and favors interleukin and interferon production. Take 40 drops of propolis tincture on a piece of bread for a month. Pause for 10 days and resume. An ideal 3-4 annual cure is recommended.
You can use an alkaline water filter at home to eliminate the toxic metabolites from the body and alkalize the organism.
Physical exercise boosts the immune system. This is due to the fact that when we exercise the body secretes interleukin-1 and interferon, the natural killer cells, and leukocytes. Regular exercise will keep you sane body and mind. Go outdoors into the woods and enjoy the fresh air cure, your lungs need it.
The Spiritual Cause for Lung Cancer
As we’ve mentioned at the beginning of this article, every disease has an emotional background that causes it. First, the disease starts in the emotional field of a person and later on it grows into the material dimension. When facing a chronic disease such as lung cancer, try to see what has happened to you on an emotional level that has triggered it. The answer lies within you.
And if you don’t believe that something in particular happened, then look into your beliefs.
Do you fear getting sick/cancer?
Do you happen to have a history in your family that has triggered a feeling of fear inside you of not getting sick? I believe that first, you should look into your emotions and beliefs. Becoming aware of them is the first step toward healing. Just open up to yourself and be honest and things will become clear.
Most cancer patients have gone through a very emotionally disturbing event in their lives that has continued to eat them from inside. Seeing a psychologist could also be helpful when confronted with a condition such as lung cancer.
In the case of lung cancer in particular, excessive worry, resentment, and negative attitudes towards oneself seem to be the main emotional triggers. Lungs have the natural function of taking in and expelling out. Reflect on the things you cannot “take in” and accept as well as the residue that you cling to and cannot let go.
Forgive in order to heal from lung cancer
In order to break this chain of emotional suffering you need to forgive yourself, the others, and the world as a whole. When you make peace with yourself is when your healing starts, inside out.
Understand the perfection in the imperfection of all that is.
