Chinese Plant Compound Wipes out Cancer in 40 Days, Says New Research

Anthony Gucciardi
Waking Times

A little-known plant with a truly bizarre name is now making headlines as a cancer killer, with the compound of the plant vanishing tumors in mice with pancreatic cancer. Known as the ‘thunder god vine’ or lei gong teng, the Chinese plant is actually integrated into Chinese medicine and has been used for ages in remedying a number of conditions including rheumatoid arthritis.

According to the new research out of the University of Minnesota’s Masonic Cancer Center, the thunder god plant compound led to no signs of tumors after a 40 day period — even after discontinuing the treatment. Published in the journal Science Translational Medicine and funded by the National Institutes of Health, even the scientists working on the project were stunned by the anti-cancer properties of the compound. Known to contain something known as triptolide, which has been identified as a cancer fighter in previous research, it is thought to be the key component that may be responsible for the anti-tumor capabilities.

Study leader and vice chairman of research at the Cancer Center explained to Bloomberg how he was blown away by the effects of the simple plant:

“This drug is just unbelievably potent in killing tumor cells,” he said.

And just like with numerous other powerful substances like turmeric and ginger, mainstream science is still slowly confirming what many traditional practitioners have known for their entire lives. This is, of course, due to the fact that there is simply no money for major corporations in researching the healing powers of natural herbs and compounds such as the compound found in the thunder god vine. Turmeric and ginger, for example, have been found to be amazing anti-cancer substances that are virtually free compared to expensive and dangerous cancer drugs.

Nevertheless, the Big Pharma sponsored corporate scientists have managed to ignore these spices as much as possible. In fact, they have even been caught time and time again faking thousands of studies to fraudulently demonstrate the supposed value of pharmaceutical drugs pushed by major pharma juggernauts — many of which are later forced to pay millions in fines which only slightly stack up against their billions in profits.

Profits that are threatened by the many real studies that were performed by scientists examining the rejeuvenating power of cheap ingredients like turmeric, which has been found by peer-reviewed research available on PubMed to positively influence over 590 conditions.

While it is great news that this study is bringing the beneficial effects of inexpensive and near-free plant compounds to light, the bad news is that the individuals responsible for the research are actually looking to create a pharmaceutical drug from the essential component triptolide. A drug that will seek FDA approval and ultimately be patented, nutritionally ruined, and sold for exorbitant amounts of cash. Instead, just get your hands on some thunder god vine for yourself.

    I have not been here for a while. I did warn my sister that Herceptin had adverse effects at the time especially for the heart. She was encouraged to take it to prevent a recurrence of the cancer (I know that’s a paradox). I still don’t understand why she still went ahead with it. She lives in a different city and we had not been in touch for a couple of months as I had to go abroad. She took supplements especially Coenzyme q10 to protect her. She had no side effects and our Naturopath/Herbalist regularly checked her and included herbs to mitigate any side effects. He found no abnormality in the heart.

    I presented to her some research that indicated no measurable difference in terms of a successful prevention if you take it for either 9 weeks or the full one year trial. She argued successfully with the oncologists and stopped it.

    In hindsight, what she knows now, she would have refused Herceptin.

    Dear Heena, where do you reside?

    Hi Salman,

    I have rheumatoid arthritis from last 14 years. I would like to try thunder god vine. I need to see herbalists. Can you give some more info please. I am so glad your sister is feeling better.

    Thank you.

  • Salman

    Late December last year, my sister’s tumor disappeared and her lymph nodes were no longer swollen. Her skin and energy levels has been the best it’s been in many years.

    She is currently on Herceptin.

    Superfoods included were Spirulana, Chlorella, barleygrass juice, broccoli, spinach, flax sprouts, pumpkin sprouts, Goji berry, purple grapes, Aronia berry and pomengranate. All were juiced and mixed using a slow masticating auger juicer.

    During the last two months she supplemented organic macha green tea(very good for lymphatic system) and Inositol+IP6 (original formula).

    You can actually buy superfood green powder from the net. Must be organic.

      Hi Salman

      Great that you used natural treatments to cure your sister of breast cancer, but there is something I do not understand. Why would your sister start having Herceptin. Herceptin is a drug with many adverse side effects. If the cancer is gone, it is gone and if it ever came back then you know how to cure it. Having Herceptin will cause your sister all kinds of health problems, it may even kill her as one of the side effects is causing heart attacks.

    My younger sister was diagnosed with stage 3 estroegen related breast cancer a few months ago that had affected one of her lymph nodes. Her tumour was 5cm large. The Oncologist advised to her to have 2 different chemos, herceptin drug and a masectomy. I pushed my sister to go alternative path. We cut out all sugars, dairy, meat, processed foods and put her on a high alkaline diet, raw foods and super foods with known anti-cancer properties. My best friend who is a master hebalist formulated a herbal treatment for her which included Ganoderma Lucidum Mushroom, Curcumin and Red clover. My sister also took sodium bicarbonate with Maple syrup. Within three months her tumour had shrunk by 80% much to the surprise of the oncologist who could not even find the tumour during a physical scan. There is a cure for every disease, except death.

      To Salman~

      That’s a WONDERFUL story. I hope it completely disappears. Congratulations.

      • Salman

        Thankyou for YOUR kind words, Shane. I have seen too many of our close family friends die needlesly of cancer. It was not so much of the disease that hastened their demise, but complications from chemo i.e. pneumonia and infection due to a compromised immune system.

        Sometimes, Shane, it takes desperate situations to make radical decisions.

        In my sister’s case, we will continue to fight it and will not rest on our laurels.

        I hope to share my experience with as many people as possible. God bless.

    Yep, looks like they’re pretty threatened by this information. They are trying scare tactics to warn everyone about “side effects” in the U.K.

      It is true that the risks of many Chinese herbal medicines are over-stated, but this isn’t one of them. This is a substance that is truly dangerous if used incorrectly. While many natural remedies work by supporting the immune system or clearing toxins, this plant works more like chemotherapy – the Chinese call it 以毒攻毒 “using toxin to attack toxin”.

      I am a Chinese medicine practitioner and wholeheartedly encourage dietary changes and use of substances like turmeric, ganoderma, and goji berries – but Lei Gong Teng should only be prescribed by a licensed practitioner of Chinese medicine or registered herbalist. Please do not just buy this substance and start dosing your family with this, it is too powerful.

  • where can i get this. thanks

    Where to buy

    • Laura Cochran

      Where can I purchase this. I have a relative that has stage 4 Cancer, I have arthritis and Bone on Bone hip. Is it good for that. Thanks

  • Great article – it totally sickens me to know that the big pharma companies knowing push their chemicals when there are so many natural healing plants in nature. Please keep publishing these articles

      They did the same thing with the research from guanabana fruit..tried to make it synthetically, couldn’t recreate it, then dropped all the research and hid all the benefits from the public..FDA is crap

      • Anonymous

        I totally agree ! This org is against people’s rights to live a healthy life. Profit from greed and death keeps them happy .. The FDA is against good health for the most part

      I am a natural healer and have had many patients with many conditions that were not helped medically that were cured or helped greatly by my treatments. Despite this, not one medical doctor has ever referred a patient to me. Interestingly enough, these same medical doctors have referred many people to other natural “so called” natural healers that have had a poor recovery rate for their patients. Just what is the agenda here????
