How to Make Ginger Oil To Counter Prostate, Ovarian and Colon Cancer

Most people are prepared to deal with common everyday first aid needs. Medicine cabinets contain the basic medicines you’ll need to treat everyday illnesses, or at least keep you limping along until you can get to medical attention. What happens when that medical attention is a long way off, and you’re involved in a prolonged emergency without medical care?

Are you prepared to handle an extended period without access to medical care, possibly for months or years? In such a situation, the ability to treat and prevent chronic illness may literally mean the difference between life and death.

Researchers in the UK now estimate that roughly half of the population will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime. That’s up from 1 in 3 people even just a few decades ago. In a survival scenario, that number could increase further as the potential for increased environmental toxins is higher without sanitation or rule of law.

But… How Do You Prepare to Treat Cancer?

In times of chaos, when modern medicine is not available, we have to go back to our roots and use time-tested medicines that worked for our ancestors. Plant based medicine worked to keep us healthy for generations, and now science is showing us why.

Consuming ginger extract has been shown to have significant anti-cancer properties according to a study in the journal of food and chemical toxicology. In particular, ginger is effective at preventing the growth and progression of prostate, ovarian and colon cancer in lab studies. Ginger extract is also showing promise as a treatment for liver cancer.

One study in the British Journal of Nutrition found that consuming 100 mg of ginger for every Kg of body weight could inhibit the growth of prostate cancer by as much as 56%.

Ginger is extremely easy to grow at home as a houseplant, because it thrives in low light. Full sun outdoors actually burns the growth, meaning that it’s ideal to cultivate on a windowsill indoors for year round harvests. So long as temperatures consistently stay above 50 degrees, you can have your own self renewing supply of cancer fighting ginger.

How To Easily Prepare Your Own Homemade Ginger Extract

All you need is a bit of ginger, a neutral cooking oil, such as olive or sunflower oil, and a bit of heat for the extraction process.

#1. Wash it off

Start by thoroughly washing and drying your ginger root. Allow the root to dry for at least a few hours or overnight to ensure it’s completely dry before you begin. Grate or thinly slice the ginger into a heat safe container, such as a small baking pan, enameled cast iron or mason jar. I’ve used an enameled cast iron because it allows me to make small batches, and cover a single layer of ginger with just a think layer of oil. The cast iron helps to moderate the heat, and keep the ginger extracting at a constant low temperature.

#2. Peel and grateGrated and Sliced Ginger

Peeling the ginger first helps it taste better, but it’s not necessary as the peel also contains medicinal compounds. In a survival situation, I would want to make use of every scrap of ginger, and I wouldn’t waste the peel.

#3. Cover with oilAdding the Oil to Cover Ginger

Cover the ginger completely with your neutral cooking oil. In this case, I’ve used sesame oil because I want to incorporate the ginger oil into my cooking and sauces, and the flavor of sesame complements ginger. Sesame oil also has its own cancer fighting properties, and is showing promise as a treatment for colon cancer.

#4. Extract the essentials

Place the heat-safe container in the oven on its lowest setting, usually around 150 to 170 degrees.  Extract the oil for 2 to 4 hours.

In a pinch, placing your extract near the wood stove also works to provide heat, but avoid placing it in direct contact with the stove as that will deep fry your oil rather than gently extract.

The heat will help draw medicinal compounds out of the ginger and into the oil, while at the same time driving off excess water that could cause the oil to go rancid.

#5. Strain and storeStraining Ginger Oil

After your extraction is complete, strain out the ginger solids using cheesecloth, muslin or a fine mesh strainer.  Ginger oil should store out of direct sunlight for at least 6 months. Home grown ginger, harvested twice per year, should keep your family stocked with this homemade cancer preventative and treatment all year long.Finished Ginger Oil 2

As with most herbal treatments, it’s best to consume it daily in small quantities as a preventative rather than trying to consume it in large quantities after a condition has already developed. Fortunately, ginger also has a host of other health benefits all year long even before you’re dealing with a cancer diagnosis. It’s a potent anti-inflammatory, and it also helps with digestion, circulation, headaches. coughs, colds, and fungal infections.

Try incorporating ginger oil into your cooking, or simply take it by the spoonful daily.

    The dosage is listed in milligrams. The oil is liquid so what is the millilitre measure? Also do you have an acurate ginger to oil ratio?

      Quote from a conversion website: Milligrams (mg) measure weight, and Millilitres (ml) measure volume of liquid.

      The part of the word ‘Milli’ comes from the latin mille, which means one thousand. There are 1,000 milligrams in a gram, and 1,000 millilitres in a litre of liquid.

    I like this, anybody have any recipes? Wonder if it can take much heat, or is it best used as a sauce or dressing ingredient? Ginger is a very handsome plant.

    I have wild ginger in my woods. Does it work the same way?

      Did someone click the wrong thumb? Why would someone give a thumbs down to a cogent question? Nick: If you read this, I think your question is right on and if the downer really meant to click a thumbs down, I wonder about their mindset.

      To answer your question, I am not a botanist by any stretch of the imagination, but I think domestic ginger probably originated from wild ginger way back when. While I can’t state it as a positive statement, it is my belief that in Korea and Japan where harvesting wild plants is a big pastime — just saw a 45 minute program on harvesting wild mushrooms in Japan, something I would never attempt here in the States — harvesting wild ginger is very common. It is also my vague recollection that Korean ginger is supposed to be the best ginger. Don’t know where I picked up that bon mot, If you are concerned about consuming wild ginger, approach it with the U.S. Army method of testing. Rub it on your elbow. No reaction in 24 hours, rub it on your lip. No reaction in 24 hours, chew a small bit but don’t swallow. That will clear your sinuses, No reaction other than very clear sinuses in 24 hours, consume a small bit. If you haven’t died, you probably can consume the plant but go easy the first few portions. Don’t gobble up the entire root. You probably wouldn’t want to anyway, but that also applies to other plants.
