Yes, an Essential Oil that has so many of the Anti-Cancer effects of CBD Oils without the confusion, legal and mind-altering concerns!
The research being done with copaiba essential oil is once again affirming the wisdom of centuries-old healing practices of indigenous people who used copaiba for pain, infection and inflammation. The research is also revealing that copaiba has impressive anti-cancer properties.
We have probably all heard about how cannabinoid oils like CBD (cannabidiol),
marijuana, and hemp oil are proving to have potent anti-cancer, anti-seizure and anti-pain effects. While there are enough studies to validate these claims, understanding which oil to use, where to get them (legally and safely), how to assure quality, how to afford them, and how to avoid the undesirable side effects and the stigma still associated with such usage, keeps a lot of people from exploring or utilizing this avenue.
While all of the above issues are being sorted out by the industry and perhaps by you and your loved ones, you can readily obtain and begin using copaiba oil. Like the better-known marijuana and hemp oils, it affects the endocannabinoid receptors in your body.
The most documented effect of copaiba is its anti-inflammatory action. This is due to the phytochemical beta-caryophyllene, which is found in large amounts in copaiba. Since inflammation is a contributing factor to cancer and since cancer and conventional cancer treatments contribute to inflammation, plant-based natural anti-inflammatories should be part of cancer-healing and cancer-prevention protocols. But that is just the tip of the cancer-related impact of copaiba. There appear to be more direct cancer-fighting benefits in this wonderful cost-effective oil.
Copaiba has been shown to prevent the spread of cancer cells, particularly malignant ones, into surrounding tissue. Research reported in December 2015 found that copaiba was able to kill estrogen and progesterone receptor positive infiltrating ductal carcinoma cells breast cancer cells better than doxorubicin (also known as Adriamycin or the “Red Devil”), a commonly used chemotherapy for breast cancer. Another 2015 (animal) study showed that beta-caryophyllene potently inhibited the growth of solid tumors and lymph node metastasis (spread) in mice with melanoma. Even 10 years ago, a December 2007 study revealed that beta-caryophyllene significantly increased anti-cancer activity against several cancer cell lines, including the aforementioned MCF-7 cells.
But if I am doing Chemo, will using Copaiba Oil interfere with treatment?
Isn’t this the common question? And guess what, if your oncologists tells you not to use this oil while doing chemo, you can tell the doc that this oil actually has been shown in the lab to potentiate (improve) the effects of chemo. In the aforementioned December 2007 study, the researchers also concluded that “beta-caryophyllene potentiated [increased the effect of] the anticancer activity of paclitaxel, a chemotherapy drug favored by many oncologists. The combination of beta-caryophyllene and paclitaxel increased the activity of paclitaxel by about ten-fold, helping it work better.”
And it is possible that Copaiba oil can decrease the amount of neuropathy and other nerve damage that often occurs with chemotherapy. A 2012 study revealed that copaiba oil had neuroprotective properties. And if you are already experiencing nerve damage and other cancer- related pains, remember that utilizing the cannabinoid receptors throughout the body, can greatly reduce pain. In fact, that is one of the ways that Tylenol and other pain meds work to diminish pain. They activate the cannabinoid system. Well, as already mentioned, so does Copaiba oil without the side effects of OTC meds or the mind-altering effects of THC. Unlike THC found in marijuana, Copaiba oil does not interact with CB1 receptors in brain and central nervous system.
Interested in incorporating Copaiba essential oil in your anti-cancer protocols?
Well then you will be happy to know that while a reputable CBD oil costs around $120.00 for 15 ml., Copaiba is just under $50.00 for the same amount. Plus, I can show you how to get a high- quality copaiba at wholesale, for just $35.00 (about 60 cents a dose). Do not miss part II next week where I will share several different ways to use copaiba oil and show you how to get it wholesale. If you do not want to wait until then, you can contact me at [email protected] cancer or at 847 604-4704.
PS: Most of you may not know that I have been learning and utilizing more and more essential oil applications in my private cancer coaching work. Because I am so excited with how these non-toxic gems from Mother Nature can support so many aspects of your cancer healing journey, I will begin sharing more about them in the new year. I have even revamped my 4-week live but virtual program Taking Your Life Back from Cancer to include more essential oil interventions. I am really chomping at the bit to share more about this program as well. So STAY TUNED!
