Recently scientists around the world have confirmed the anti-bacterial and anti-mycotic [antifungal and antibiotic] effects of black seed oil.
Health practitioners in various
countries around the world are using the oil against inflammation of all sorts
as well as fungi infections. Even a remarkable reduction of blood sugar levels
has been found by scientists. Black Seed extracts have been found help to
stimulate bone marrow and immune cells, so writes the scientists of the Cancer
Immuno-Biology Laboratory and adding that it raises the interferon production,
protects normal cells against cell destroying effects of viruses, destroys tumor
cells and raises the number of anti-bodies producing B cells.
All these functions make the Black Seed oil the ideal candidate for the prevention and treatment of cancer. Scientists are now busy finding the effects of the Black Seed oil in regard to various other human health conditions. Dr. Med. Peter Schleicher, an immunologist, in Munich who in 1986 happened to be nominated the youngest member of the World Academy of Scientists, examined black seed oil in his institute to find new therapies for chronic illness and its effect.
His findings are identical to those in previous studies by earlier researchers. Schleicher says, by using Black Seed oil, valuable unsaturated fatty acids, for example Linoleic [unsaturated omega-6 fatty acid] and Gammalinolen [an essential fatty acid] acids, get into the organism. By that it is possible to reach a synthesis of important immune regulating substances derived from Prostaglandin E1. Linoleic acid stabilizes the cell membranes and Prostaglandin has the effect of inhibiting inflammation.
By that the immune reactions are
stopped which cause the illnesses and which otherwise could be the start of many
many chronic illnesses like acne and hay fever right up to cancer. In addition,
the excessive T-cell function of the person suffering from allergies are
stabilized through the substance in black seed oil and the abnormally rising
immune reactions through suppressed anti-bodies. The excessive immune system is
normalized and the large cell
Studies also testify that an immune system which has gone wrong can again be regulated by the strong effect of the oil. Schleicher, meanwhile, has tested the effect of the oil on 600 patients. As a result he confirms the cure for allergies at about 70% of the patients. Amongst them are allergies against pollen and dust, acne and neuro-dermatological illnesses, asthma patients, etc.. who generally have a weak resistance and are prone to suffer from infections.
For that reason Dr. Schleicher in
Munich is going to include the oil with his preventative treatment against colds
In the Middle East and South Asia, this oil has been used for thousands of years as a remedy for all sorts of allergies, inflammation and menstruation problems, boosting moral, depression; but especially against bronchitis, asthma and neuro-dermatitis as well as poor digestion and even impotency.
The Prophet Mohammad (s) stated in
his "Hadith" that black seed oil cures every illness except death. No wander
then that a little bottle of the oil was even found in the tomb of the legendary
In the West the effect of the oil has been used for a long time against wind, dysentery, stomach and lung disease, jaundice, diuretic problems and to increase nursing mother's milk. Due to the triumphant advances in chemistry the oil has been forgotten until recently. According to Dr. Schleicher the reason why this oil is so exceptional is that its component parts act in unison to produce an optimum effect for so many complaints. But one has to make sure that only the pure and tested oil is being used.
Schleicher's colleagues have reacted very positively after the publication about his success with patients who have used the oil. Professor G. Rietmuller, Director of Institute for immunology at the University of Munich believes that this plant extract works positively on the immune system and could be used as a bio-regulator.
Professor Michael Meurer of the
Dermatology Clinic in Munich has for a long time been convinced about the
success of this oil. From his experience the oil help stop inflammation and
helps with neurodermitis.
At the International Cancer Congress in New Delhi last Autumn the anti-tumour effect of black cumin oil has been introduced to many scientists and doctors.
