Have you heard of Sessamin, no, neither had I until I was doing research into alternative therapies into myeloma and other cancer related therapies.
Let me first tell you about ‘Oil Pulling’, ok initially it does sound like something sexual, or is that just me, anyway … Oil pulling is basically the process of taking a tablespoon of Oil in your mouth and swilling it around and forcing it between your teeth for 20 minutes and then spitting it out. Between 15 and 20 minutes it turns white which is what you are aiming to do. There are various oils you can use, but one of the recommended is Sesame Oil.
HEALING THROUGH OIL-PULLING
Dr. F. Karach, M.D., presented a paper before the All-Ukrainian Association. The meeting was attended by oncologists and bacteriologists belonging to the Academy of Science of the USSR. Dr. Karach explained an unusual simple healing process using cold-pressed oils. The healing process is accomplished by the human organism on its own. In this way it is possible to heal cells, tissue and all organs simultaneously; the body itself gets rid of toxic waste without disturbing the healthy microflora. Dr. Karach says human beings are living only half their life span. They could potentially live healthy to be 140 to 150 years old. Dr. Karach suggested using either sunflower or sesame oils, but you could also use coconut oil or olive oil - pick one to which you do not react.
The method In the morning before breakfast on an empty stomach you take one tablespoon of cold-pressed oil in the mouth but do not swallow it. Move oil slowly in the mouth as rinsing or swishing and Dr Karach puts it as ‘ sip, suck and pull through the teeth’ for fifteen to twenty minutes. This process makes oil thoroughly mixed with saliva. Swishing activates the enzymes and the enzymes draw toxins out of the blood. The oil must not be swallowed, for it has become toxic. As the process continues, the oil gets thinner and white. If the oil is still yellow, it has not been pulled long enough. It is then spit from the mouth into the toilet - the oral cavity must be thoroughly rinsed and mouth must be washed thoroughly. Just use normal tap water or hydrogen peroxide and good old fingers to clean. Clean the sink properly, because the spittle contains harmful bacteria and toxic bodily waste. If one were to see one drop of this liquid magnified 600 times under a microscope, one would see microbes in their first stage of development. It is important to understand that during the oil-pulling/swishing process one’s metabolism is intensified. This leads to improved health. One of the most striking results of this process is the fastening of loose teeth, the elimination of bleeding gums and the visible whitening of the teeth.
The oil pulling /swishing is done best before breakfast. To accelerate the healing process, it can be repeated three times a day, but always before meals on an empty stomach. For step by step instructions click on: http://www.oilpulling.com/oilpullingmethod.htm
This led me to find out more about sesame in general and if you do a search on the internet, there are various sites that say it works, along with the usual ones that say it doesn’t – my thoughts on it are, why not give it a try, if it works and doesn’t have any harmful side effects great. If it does nothing, what have you lost, apart from 20 minutes a day. I usually do something else like take my shower have a shave, get dressed etc all while Oil Pulling. The time soon goes.
Anyway back to the research and a more interesting thing that I found was called Sesamin which is made from Sesame. Now here a discovered a medical research document where there has been genuine research with real benefits. Here is a link to the PDF so you can read it yourself.
Now I am definitely not a medical minded person, but after doing a bit of digging so that I can understand some of the terms the bit in the document that says …
Sesamin suppresses cell proliferation in various tumor
cells. We examined whether sesamin can modulate the proliferation of various tumor cell types. As shown in Fig. 1B,
sesamin by itself suppressed the proliferation of human
leukemic cells (such as KBM-5 and K562) and multiple
myeloma cells (U266)
Sesamin potent iat ed TNF- induced apoptosis
We sought to determine whether sesamin affects TNF-induced apoptosis in human chronic myeloid leukemia KBM-5 cells. Using a Live/Dead assay, which measures intracellular esterase activity and assesses plasma membrane integrity, we found that sesamin increased the TNF-induced apoptosis from 9% to 65% in KBM-5 cells (Fig. 1C, top). To determine whether the effect is cell type specific, we also examined the effect of sesamin on TNF-induced apoptosis in human multiple myeloma U266 cells. Like KBM-5 cells, sesamin also increased the TNF-induced apoptosis from 10% to 47% in U266 cells (Fig. 1C, bottom).
I will leave the rest for you to examine and your own research and investigation, but generally it looks like it increases the effectiveness of treatment and even taken with out any treatment is beneficial without altering the DNA. I’ve given a copy to Dr Lee to read as he hadn’t hear of of either – I don’t know if he will investigate any further, but I hope he will.
I’ve bought some and wanted to know if it was safe to start taking it, it didn’t say I shouldn’t so I’m going to start taking it from tomorrow.
I couldn’t find any in town (not yet anyway) but you can buy it from Amazon here is the link -
I also bought the sesame oil on amazon, but I found that in a local health food shop a little cheaper as well. Don’t use the Toasted type sold in super markets.
I will let you know how I get on with both of these.
