This Natural Mosquito Repellent May Repel Cancer, Too

Recently, I learned of a new natural cancer treatment that’s been slowly gaining attention over the years. Oddly, it can also be rubbed on your skin to thwart mosquitos – sort of like an all-round pest-repellant that keeps everything from biting insects to insidious disease at bay. Keep reading, because it’s an interesting story. . .

Drink This and Cancer
Comes Pouring Out of Your Body

“If I could pick only one treatment to cure my cancer, this would be it,” says a top expert on alternative cancer treatments.

Research conducted by a scientist at the Detroit Institute of Cancer Research showed this is one of the world’s most powerful cancer cures. Even the mainstream National Cancer Institute confirmed that this do-it-yourself treatment kills cancer cells. Then they buried the research.

Personally, I’ve been writing about cancer treatments for almost ten years. Out of nearly 400 that I’ve investigated, I haven’t found an at-home treatment that’s better.

It worked for Robert, age 54, who had late stage stomach cancer. His doctors told him he didn’t have a chance. The most they could do was buy him a little time, using four aggressive chemotherapy drugs PLUS radiation — a deadly, toxic, last-ditch treatment.

INSTEAD Robert used this non-toxic liquid and was completely cancer-free within months. The amazed doctor was forced to admit Robert’s cancer was “in remission.” Two years later, he was still cancer-free.

I’m talking about perillyl alcohol, or POH. Although it sounds like something that should come out of a distillery, you can find this natural plant compound in several different herbs and fruits. It seems perillyl alcohol deprives cancer cells of the proteins needed to grow and divide, effectively stopping the disease in its tracks.

And so far, this outcome has been observed on every kind of cancer researchers have tested POH against.

A growing body of proof

More specifically, perillyl alcohol is derived from various essential oils, including lavender, peppermint, cherries, celery seeds, sage, and lemongrass. It’s a monoterpene, which, for you science enthusiasts, links to a class of volatile unsaturated hydrocarbons found in various plants and plant extracts (like essential oils). Monoterpenes are known to prevent carcinogenesis, which basically means they can help treat early and advanced-stage cancers.

In terms of cancer treatment and prevention, here’s what perillyl alcohol is purported to do:

  • Induces apoptosis (cell death) in tumor cells without affecting normal cells
  • Reverts tumor cells back to their pre-cancer states
  • Halts post-translational modification of signal transduction proteins (I don’t know what it means, either)
  • Counters angiogenesis, according to in vitro studies. Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels to feed cancer tumors.

In a 2010 study published in the journal of Anti-Cancer Drugs, positive healing effects were observed when perillyl alcohol was mixed with methyl jasmonate (a volatile organic compound plants use to protect themselves). The mixture basically helped sensitize tumor cells. As a result, these cells became more susceptible to treatment by the chemotherapy drug cisplatin.

Further study showed that perillyl alcohol helped activate tumor necrosis (cell injury leading to death) and decreased the mitochondrial membranes in cells, all of which contributes to apoptosis or natural cancer cell death.

Also, perillyl alcohol appears to become more effective when administered intra-nasally (i.e., as a squirt up your nose). This is especially true for brain cancer, with some reports stating that intranasal administration of perillyl alcohol solution helps to shrink oligodendroglioma tumors. A 2012 study from the journal of Molecular Cancer Therapeutics supports this fact, showing that intranasal administration of POH both decreased tumor growth and increased post-tumor survival in animal studies.

Still, there hasn’t been enough research yet to know exactly how POH works or why.

Just some of the cancers POH helps treat

People take perillyl alcohol primarily for lung cancer, certain types of breast cancer, colon cancer, and brain cancer. But it’s also used as a treatment for cancers that don’t appear to respond to other treatments.

The chemo-preventative effect of perillyl alcohol is most pronounced for colon, skin, and lung cancer. And according to the Memorial-Sloan Kettering website, early animal studies show it can significantly slow liver tumors, breast tumors, and pancreatic tumors.

The jury is mixed on perillyl alcohol and prostate cancer. Some say it helps, but at least one study says perillyl alcohol doesn’t keep prostate cancer from growing once established. (Although the study itself was flawed, as too many patients dropped out early, stating they couldn’t tolerate the side effects.)

Not that perillyl alcohol’s side effects are unusual, from what we’re able to learn. If taken in high quantities, it can cause nausea and fatigue – symptoms that cancer patients already know if they’ve tried conventional treatments. Other side effects of high doses include reflux and headache.

But it appears most side effects happen when the drug is taken orally as opposed to intra-nasally. That makes sense – the nasal administration bypasses the GI tract where so many side effects are felt.

On the list of “treatments to watch”

At any rate, there’s a strong case for this substance to move front and center as a treatment option. But, like so many other promising natural treatments, perillyl alcohol needs to be thoroughly tested in humans before you’ll see any kind of doctor-based recommendations. And until its safety and efficacy is 100 percent proven… we’re not likely to hear too much more about it.

For now, just know that perillyl alcohol is pretty safe when used with medical supervision. If someone with cancer is working with an alternative or integrative doctor who prescribes POH, there’s no harm in trying it.
