Tea For Cancer

Cancer or malignant neoplasm is a class of diseases in which a group of cells display uncontrolled growth (division beyond the normal limits), invasion (intrusion on and destruction of adjacent tissues), and sometimes metastasis (spread to other locations in the body via lymph or blood).

There are many herbs that can be made into tea that are effective in treating cancer. The tea infusion can help and aid in combating cancer through several ways:

  • They stimulate the immune system
  • They break up accumulations (tumors)
  • They stimulate blood circulation
  • They assist in the detoxification process

It should be made clear that it has not been conclusively proven that tea and other herbal tea infusions are a “cure” for cancer. Nevertheless, they can be a beneficial aspect in the overall efforts to treat cancer.
