Did Steve Jobs Try Milk Thistle for his Cancer?

Carrying acute pain of cancer in his frail and weak body, Steve Jobs was just pulling his life till he reached his death. He tried all conventional medicines. Did he ever try alternative medicines to treat his cancer?


The premature death of the great visionary Steve Jobs due to cancer is a great shock to the world. He died on Wednesday, 5 October, 2011 at the age of 56 after a long battle with a rare form of pancreatic cancer with which he had been suffering for more than seven years.
Pancreatic cancer, medically diagnosed as cancer with a neuroendocrine tumor, is more treatable type of pancreatic cancer than other kinds of cancer. It is a cancer variety found less common, slower-growing and is said to have killed Steve Jobs a few days ago.

Jobs struggling with cancer

Although Jobs had been struggling with health issues of cancer, he is said to have battled very little with cancer since he had treatment in 2004. He underwent many conventional treatments for his cancer ailments.

Steve Jobs changed the world with his technological revolutions through iPod, iPhone, iPad and other inventions. But modern conventional medical world could not keep him healthy and and protect him from cancer death.

Cruelty of cancer

Cancer is a very cruel disease of the modern world which does not care who is suffering from it or what he had done to the world or how much more there was left for him to do. In Jobs' case also cancer did not care about his technological achievements or about his wife or his unsettled children, although he carried much more magic around inside his amazing brain. Cancer is so cruel that it never cares who you are.

Alternative remedies for cancer

I always wonder if Steve Jobs had ever tried alternative medicines, although he was undergoing conventional treatments of chemotherapy and radiation. There are treatments in alternative therapies which can be taken along with conventional treatments.

Alternative therapies treat cancer in many ways, ranging from dietary changes, use of nutritional supplements and herbs from nature to psychic treatments such as yoga, meditation, etc. They have been used for thousands of years and proved to be successful in many cases. Faith and inner belief have been supporting these systems.

How does Ayurveda help in treating cancer?

Ayurveda makes use of all the methods stated above and has been treating diseases for thousands of years. The classical Ayurvedic literature of ancient India enlists formulations for its treatment. As in other cases, it cures cancer by purifying toxins and balancing the humors(three doshas) through herbs and other supportive medications.

Herbal use in Ayurvedic treatments for cancer

Ayurveda makes use of various anti-cancer herbs such as red clover, aloe vera, burdock root, dandelion root, guggul (Commiphora mukul), turmeric, chaparral, etc.
Specific herbs such as green tea (Camellia sinensis), cat's claw(Uncaria tomentosa), manjishta (Rubia cordifolia), shatavari(Asparagus racemonus), brahmi (Bacopa monniera), etc. are some of the herbs used in Ayurvedic treatments.

Recent research on milk thistle

Natural Laws has recently published an article that milk thistle, also known as Silymarin, prevents the metastatic process, stopping the spread of cancer in its tracks. It is a powerful antioxidant that has been used for more than 2,000 years to prevent and treat liver disease. It strengthens liver which performs various metabolic functions including filtering drugs and antibiotics that we take as medicines. In fact, antibiotics and painkillers increase stress on liver and cause its earlier failure. Milk thistle can serve as a preventive as well as curative remedy.

Time has come to consider realities in alternative therapies instead of omitting them as superstitious and outdated. Studies can be made to find out effectiveness of those therapies and combine them in conventional treatments.
