Natural Remedies- A spicy remedy for everything from cancer to colds


Horseradish is more than just a condiment. It has been used to treat a wide variety of ailments over centuries. Nearly every part of the horseradish plant seems to have some medicinal value. Horseradish can clear up stuffed sinuses, increase facial circulation, promote expulsion of mucus from upper respiratory passages and now recent studies have discovered Horseradish contains significant amounts of cancer-fighting compounds called glucosinolates, which increase the liver’s ability to detoxify carcinogens and may suppress the growth of tumors. Once inside the body, glucosinolates are broken down into powerful derivatives called isothiocyanates and indoles, which are believed to be the main cancer-preventive contributors of Horseradish and cruciferous vegetables. Although broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and other cruciferous vegetables also contain these compounds, Horseradish has up to 10 times more glucosinolates. 

In addition, Horseradish has a mild natural antibiotic effect, and it stimulates urine production. Thus, it has been used to treat urinary infections. If you experience chronic urinary, sinus, or other infections, you should know Horseradish is considered safe for long-term use. Occasionally, Horseradish is used topically to alleviate the pain of arthritis and nerve irritation. If you are prone to developing sinus infections, try taking Horseradish the minute you feel a cold coming on to prevent mucus from accumulating in your sinus cavities. Herbalists also recommend Horseradish for common colds, influenza, and lung congestion. Incidentally, don’t view the increase of mucus production after Horseradish therapy as a sign your cold is worsening. The free-flowing mucus is a positive sign that your body is ridding itself of wastes, so bear with it for a day or two.

You can find Horseradish in your local grocery or health food store in herbal form for tea, in mustards, ground up and jarred, in whole root form and in vitamins. A few cooking ideas would be to add it to your sandwiches, spice up your potatoes and other vegetables, stir into your sauces and salad dressings, add into a pasta dish or top off your fish or beef with it. Check it out. It’s another way to fight your ailments the healthy way. Happy living!
