I’d like to give you a quiz to find out if you have healthy eating habits. It has only one question:
Do you eat the seed?
While a few might say ‘yes,’ most of us pitch the seeds in the trash.
Ask yourself… When was the last time you ate an apple all the way through the core? Or dug out the soft seed from inside the hard peach seed? Or ate an avocado seed?
Why do we throw away the seed when it’s nature’s most nutrient-dense food, rich in healing power? Bitter taste, indigestible husk…
Not only do we throw them away in our kitchens, we also try to breed them out of existence. Enter seedless grapes, seedless watermelons…
I can’t say enough to encourage you to eat whole, unadulterated non-GMO plant seeds. Especially this one…

Need a New Knee or Hip? Maybe Not!
Stanford doctors have discovered a NEW pain-stopping solution that gets to the real root cause of your pain and finally ENDS your years of torture!
Now there’s no question why you’re still in pain. In fact, one of these doctors said, and I quote, “We’ve been treating joint pain the wrong way for over 40 years. . .”
So if you’ve been told that the only way to get rid of your pain was to eventually get a knee or hip replacement. . .
. .or that to get rid of your back pain, shoulder pain or other joint pain you’ll have to keep on taking NSAID pain pills that doctors know are actually harmful. . .
. .or even worse you’ll have to endure a series of expensive, painful shots, even though they don’t give you lasting relief. . .
This new breakthrough means you’re in for a pleasant surprise! Click here to keep reading. . .
One seed far surpasses all others in nutritional AND medicinal power. In fact, a whopping 630 scientific peer-reviewed articles have been published about the seed of this one plant.
Most startling to me is what I learned in private conversation a few years ago from a top cancer doctor. He was in the process of testing scores of different natural remedies – herbs and so forth – to see which were most effective at killing strains of cancer cells cultured in lab dishes. He told me this one seed was THE most powerful cancer killer he’s found.
Recently I received an email from him that confirmed this finding, and he’s in the process of developing a supplement that will include the extract of this seed.
And yet most Americans have never even heard of it.
It goes by many names: black cumin, black caraway, black sesame, onion seed, and Roman coriander. Its official name is Nigella sativa.
“Black seed” is more of a description than an actual name, but that’s what it most often goes by.
Experts claim black seed is a remedy for practically everything – from allergies to hypertension to cancer. Perhaps its greatest promise is its newfound ability to heal superbugs, which are becoming a genuine health threat.
Superbugs resist antibiotics, but not black seed
Antibiotic-resistant bacteria and viruses, including staph, TB, gonorrhea, candida, malaria, and HIV, are becoming almost impossible to treat. Five to ten percent of hospital patients suffer superbug infections, resulting in longer hospital stays, more complicated treatments, and more difficult recoveries.1
Sadly, 90,000 of these patients die every year. (For point of reference, that’s up from 13,300 patient deaths in 1992. It’s turned into an epidemic.)
So you need to know about a study that pitted black seed oil against several antibiotics (amoxicillin, gatifloxacin, tetracycline). Out of 144 strains of infectious bacteria tested, most were resistant to multiple antibiotics. But black seed oil stopped 97 of the 144.
It even worked against the multi-drug-resistant strains of P. aeruginosa and S. aureus, which you probably know as MRSA. MRSA is plaguing hospitals and nursing homes around the world. At highest risk are the elderly, cancer patients, and people with weak immune systems.
Each and every MRSA strain Pakistani scientists studied was sensitive to black seed, proving its efficacy against this deadly pathogen.
Black seed’s three powerhouse chemicals
Black seed boasts three key anti-inflammatory chemicals that work individually and collectively:
- Thymoquinone (TQ)
- Thymohydroquinone (THQ)
Researchers have studied TQ since the 1960s. It is widely recognized for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.2 TQ acts as a free radical scavenger and even a superoxide radical scavenger. In addition, this chemical found in black seed supports the liver-protecting enzymes glutathione peroxidase and glutathione-S-transferase.
THQ is TQ’s ‘cousin’ and one of the most potent natural acetylcholinesterases (AChE) inhibitors on earth. AChE inhibitors are chemicals that halt the activity of the acetylcholinesterase enzyme – thereby boosting neuro-transmitter activity in your brain.
AChE inhibitors are used medically for neuro-degenerative conditions including Alzheimer’s disease, other types of dementia, glaucoma, and Parkinson’s disease.
And to think you can do likewise with a humble little black seed!
The third active ingredient in black seed is Thymol, which gives thyme essential oil its medicinal characteristics. Thymol kills TB bacteria and other microbes and is a disinfectant.
‘For cancer, put raw seeds ahead of all other treatments’
So says Bradford S. Weeks, M.D., an exciting speaker at a cancer seminar I attended recently.
Because cancer and aging are closely linked to inflammation, we need living foods that contain absorbable bioavailable nutrients, DNA and RNA. RNA commands every cell’s DNA what to do, how to adapt, and what to express genetically.
And seeds contain those blueprints for life. Especially the black seed.
Studies show that chemo enriches and repopulates cancer stem cells, the dangerous ones that survive chemotherapy and metastasize.3This is why chemotherapy is, by and large, a failed treatment. The cells you most need to kill actually survive and thrive, and your cancer returns.
But anti-inflammatory seeds, especially black seed, help inhibit metastases, making them powerful medicine of the best kind.
TQ in black seeds triggers apoptosis in human cancer cells, anti-proliferation, cell cycle arrest, ROS generation, anti-metastasis and anti-angiogenesis.4.5
These anti-tumor effects have been studied in mice models for colon, prostate, pancreatic and lung cancer.
Dr. Weeks says TQ also reduces chemo’s toxicity, if you decide to choose conventional treatments.
Across the board health benefits…
If you’re looking for general good health, rather than trying to solve a specific medical problem, black seed has you covered.
Liver. Don’t leave your liver to chance. This organ cleanses your system of toxins. Your liver bile is critical for digesting fats, and keeping your mind and body happy. Chinese medicine claims, “He who knows how to harmonize the liver knows how to treat a hundred diseases.”
If your liver is functioning poorly due to medication, alcohol, or disease, black seeds could greatly speed your healing.6
Diabetes and weight loss. Black seed is one of the few substances suggested for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Research shows it:
- Reduces appetite, glucose absorption, blood glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides
- Helps you lose weight
- Stimulates glucose-induced secretion of insulin from pancreatic beta-cells.7
…all with no side effects. Which is huge, because Metformin, one of the most commonly prescribed type 2 diabetes drugs, is loaded with side effects.
Though not typically used to treat obesity, black seed has helped millions shed excess weight.
Hair and skin. Want beauty the non-toxic way?
Black seed has an uncanny ability to help restore hair loss… and even to turn gray hair back to its original color, according to Dr. Weeks. He said the wife of one of his patients complained that his hair looked dirty. The reason was that the patient’s white hair was returning to its original color following his long-term use of a seed formula that included black seeds and Chardonnay grape seeds. He said, “I don’t care if it looks dirty. I haven’t had blonde hair in 30 years!”
Iranian researchers found black seed is highly effective against skin conditions like eczema.
Without a doubt, the future will reveal more benefits of this little seed – and from other seeds as well.
So for life…
Eat seeds, especially black seed – but also seeds like grape seed and flax seed. Chew or grind them thoroughly, and claim the healing you deserve.
Hint: Keep your seeds in the freezer and grind them in a small coffee grinder every morning. Consume with your breakfast, in a smoothie, on cereal, on salads, anywhere you can.
