Red Clover (flower) N. America (Tri folium Pratense)
A favorite of natural health pioneer Ellen G. White and master herbalist Jethro Kloss - "One of Gods greatest blessings to man." Has earned especially high regard among cancer survivors and is a cornerstone of legendary formulas and programs.
There is a parasite called a fluke. It inhabits the intestine and then the liver. When it is present, there is production of cell division factor ortho-phospho-tyrosine. This disrupts normal cellular schedules and results in the runaway cell growth of cancer. It has been discovered that the phytonutrient Genisteine in Red Clover Flowers is able to disrupt a precursor to the division factor thus defusing a potential biological time-bomb. When ortho-phospho-tyrosine production is disrupted, cell growth returns to normal.
Red clover is also useful for soothing frantic nerves, systemic cleansing, coughs and for the lungs.
A deep-rooted legume, perhaps the oldest agricultural crop, cultivated since prehistoric times. Important to Celtic, Chinese, Russian, Greek and Roman cultures and healing traditions. "One of God's greatest blessings to man". According to Jethro Kloss, author of the famous herb book Back To Eden. Also a favorite home remedy of natural health pioneer, Mrs. E.G. White. And red clover is mentioned in Dr. Hulda Clark's book, The Cure For All Cancers and is an ingredient in the Hoxsey program. National Cancer Institute researchers have found anti-tumor properties in the herb.
More than 30 different cultures around the world use red clover in natural cancer remedies. An enzymatic cell growth factor called ortho-phospho-tyrosine is a common cancer marker, or indicator. It is produced by body parasites. Red clover provides a substance called genistine which inhibits ortho-phospho-tyrosine.
Other enthusiasts describe its value for the lymphatic system, digestive tract, and as a reliever of water retention and menstrual discomforts, and "able to kill TB bacteria".
