To be treated or not treated with tincture of Aconite? The study is quite contradictory information on the effects of this poisonous drugs often only increases the doubts of the patient. However, these contradictions can be easily explained: cancer treatment with Aconite requires a very close relationship to all of the “little things”, starting from the procurement of raw materials and ending with the compilation of individual regimens. Otherwise, to guarantee the efficacy and safety of “useful poison” is simply impossible.
Aconite is a diverse traveler with “Intercontinental residence”
Aconite wrestler or high – perennial meadow plant, with more than 300 species, of which the most common are Aconitum napellus, Aconitum exelsum, Aconitum Songoricum. In Russian folk medicine Aconitum known as Issyk-Kul root, blue Buttercup, Aconite Jungar, volkovoy, skullcap, etc. On the Eurasian continent the plant is found in southern Siberia and Altai, in the North of Central Asia, in Primorye. In addition, members of the genus Aconitum grow in North America.
Bright blue, blue, purple (rarely white, yellow, or variegated) 8-petal flowers of the plant, resembling a helmet, gathered in beautiful blossoms. However, this beauty – killer: flowers, leaves, and seeds, and (especially!) tuber rhizomes of certain species of very poisonous Aconite, mainly in the flowering period.
Produced by wolfsbane chemical substances – alkaloids – include aconitine – the most powerful vegetable poisons, which the tubers of plants emit a characteristic odor, resembling the smell of horseradish or celery. Aconitine are the main active ingredients in the tincture of Aconite used in informal and homeopathic medicine for the treatment of cancer and many other diseases.
Attention! Poisons Aconite easily and quickly penetrate through the skin!
So if you are going independently to harvest the plant, stockpiles of durable rubber gloves, a mask and be very careful.
The content of aconitine in the cell SAP of plants can vary considerably, which is reflected as anti-cancer and other medicinal properties, and the degree of harm that “blue Buttercup” can apply to a person if it is used incorrectly.
The toxicity of Aconite depends not only on its type but also of the place of growth, age, soil, climate, etc. the Most poisonous (and most effective in the treatment of cancer) Aconite in southern latitudes, whereas in the North, the contents of the poison in the plant is so small that in some countries (e.g., Norway) we feed it to animals.
Different types of Aconite differ from each other not only in flower color, but also the type of stem (upright, twisting and Curling), and its length (50 cm in erect, up to 400 cm at curly).
Another sign by which members of this genus can vary the shape of the leaves on long petioles. They are palmately lobed, dissected or lobed. The color of the leaves from the upper side dark glossy green, with the bottom matte lighter.
The plant blooms from July to September, after which elegant inflorescence-brush become-seeded flyers (3-5 in each fruit). Seeds of Aconitum – gray-black or brown, triangular, serrated or curved edge is very small and light: 1 g there are surely up to 450 pieces.
Rhizomes penetrate under the earth at a distance of from 5 to 30 cm. It is here that formed the main “adoraria” Aconite – tubers. Young tubers of small size, with time they grow and reach a Mature state from 4 to 8 cm long and 2-3 wide. These “cones” on the roots usually 2-3. From Mature tubers grow in the spring the stems with inflorescences. After the fall of the stalk dies, the tuber is a characteristic scar. Every year Aconite is moving under the ground a few inches due to proliferation of rhizomes and the formation of new tubers, while having fulfilled their “childbearing mission” old tubers die. Thus, the plant is slowly traveling through a meadow, gradually changing “dislocation”.
The symptoms of poisoning by alkaloids of Aconite
Pattern of poisoning aconitine is determined by its multidirectional devastating effect. Under the blow of the poison are all vital systems: nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory, excretory. Deadly alkaloid disturbs metabolic processes and immune mechanisms.
In any case, do not attempt to try the Aconite tuber taste! The first signs of the harmful effect of aconitine – retching, tingling and numbness of the tongue – appear immediately. Following this classical picture of poisoning with curare-like poisons. To make it more lethal enough to swallow only 1 gram of tuber plants!
The effect of aconitine on the heart and blood vessels
The muscles of the heart and blood vessels respond to a critical dose of poison falling tone, causing the man sharply decreases blood pressure. The reaction of the conducting system of the heart in the initial stage of poisoning is manifested by slowing his rhythm – bradycardia. As the progression of the process, the picture changes: bradycardia followed by palpitations – tachycardia. This was followed in the absence of emergency arises fibrillation – chaotic contraction of the heart.
Other symptoms of poisoning
Cardiovascular disorders in cases of poisoning by Aconite is accompanied by thirst, nausea and vomiting, impaired sensation of the lips, cheeks, tongue, and fingertips, dry mouth, irregular temperature.
A high degree of intoxication is manifested by twitching of facial muscles, arms and legs, periodic vision impairments, difficulty breathing. Following this comes a loss of consciousness, cessation of breathing and heartbeat.
Can the poison be the cure?
Chilling details the harmful effect of aconitine cause understandable concern among people experiencing a serious health problem and seeks to find an effective way of alternative treatment methods.
Really Aconite can be used as a drug, getting the powerful impact where conventional medicine is powerless? Yeah, besides, even without fatal changes in the body?
Tincture of Aconite and official anti-cancer drugs: differences and similarities
First we need to recall that all the chemotherapeutic drugs used in standard treatment regimens for cancer, are related to aggressive substances with a huge number of side effects.
Thus, antitumor agents, like alcohol extract of the alkaloids of Aconite, are detrimental not only to cancer cells, but also on healthy organs and tissues. In particular, this applies to drugs of the last generation, working fairly selectively.
However, the official action of drugs in the vast majority of cases, you can plan and control.
As to the tincture of Aconite, the use of this poison even in homeopathic doses is associated with high risk, so as to obtain a stable therapeutic effect, the drug needs to take a long time, gradually raising the dose to the so-called threshold saturation, which have different patients can vary considerably.
Therefore, the high wrestler is not included in who approved the scheme of treatment of cancer and other serious diseases.
However, homeopathic remedies on the basis of tincture of Aconite are officially approved for use in China and India, as well as in Bulgaria.
I should add that the healing properties of the plant have been known since ancient times. Moreover, in the not too distant past professional oncologists have successfully used Aconite in treatment of cancerous tumors.
The history of the use of Aconite in medical practice
The first official notes about the healing properties of Aconite in homeopathic doses appeared in the middle of the 19th century. One of them was published in British medical publication the Lancet. The article contained a large number of examples of miraculous healings under the influence of “useful poison” on the basis of which the homeopathic remedy was erected, in fact, to the rank of “panacea”.
With great reverence to the Aconite were the Creator of the famous “Explanatory dictionary” and the doctor is one of the professions Vladimir Dahl. In 1838, in his letter to the Prince Odoevskogo was described real case of treatment of the patient from a severe form of pneumonia under the action of a homeopathic preparation on the basis of this wonderful plant. This letter was subsequently published in the progressive publication of those times – the magazine “Sovremennik”. By the way, my son, who is ill, croupous pneumonia, Dal treating tincture of Aconite in homeopathic doses.
Professional oncologists in different countries is quite actively used Aconite practice in the treatment of neoplastic diseases in the last century, when the official chemotherapy differed slightly from aconitine by their destructive action on the body and significantly lost “healing poison” on the effectiveness.
For example, in the Soviet Union a practicing surgical oncologist Sakuraba T. V. has developed a method, which is more than 20 years used in his medical practice. Doctors prescribe courses of tincture of Aconite cancer patients in the preoperative period, resulting in failure to reach the tumor (metastasis disappearance) even in the later stages of the disease. After treatment with Aconite were performed total removal of the lesion.
In the postoperative period Sakuraba reassigned to the patient a course of treatment with extract of Issyk-Kul root. This allowed us to prevent the appearance of new metastasis: common complications after surgery for removal of malignant tumors.
The versatile capabilities of Aconite
Unlike modern official Oncology that have made a choice in favor of synthetic anticancer drugs directed action, folk medicine successfully uses the tincture of Aconite to treat
