As we all know, many Medicinal plants have been used for centuries to cure diseases through handed down through generations, indigenous systems that have helped humanity throughout history, dating back to early folk medicines. Herbal medicines have been considered safe, taken in the correct doses, but arguably safer than much of modern medicines and the harm side effects that are so often over looked and swept aside, as are the benefits of much of the ancient herbal plant medicines.

Many studies focus on investigating medicinal plants for their potential medicinal properties, action mechanisms and softer side effects. For there is said to be a plant for every single human ailment.

Among the huge variety of medicinal plants, Nigella sativa, also known as black seed is emerging as a miracle herb, with a rich historical and religious background and immense potential. This humble, yet potent source, attacks MRSA, heals the toxicity in the body, kindles the regeneration of dying beta cells in the diabetic pancreas and is prized for its miraculous healing properties. [1]

Traditional Use of Black Seeds

N.Sativa has been traditionally used to treat various diseases, disorders, and conditions related to the respiratory system, kidney, digestive tract, liver function, cardiovascular system and immune system support, not to forget general well-being [2],[3].

Known as “God of Medicine”, black seeds stimulate the body’s energy and helps it recover from fatigue and dispiritedness.

Black seeds and their oil have a long history of folklore usage as food and medicine in Indian and Arabian civilization [4]. Some pharmacological potentials [5] of Black Seed are:

  • Analgesic (Pain-Killing)
  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Anti-Ulcer
  • Anti-Fungal
  • Anti-Cancer
  • Ant-Hypertensive
  • Antioxidant
  • Antiviral
  • Bronchodilator
  • Anti-Diabetic
  • Insulin Sensitizing
  • Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha Inhibitor

These pharmacological actions are merely a few benefits; many beneficial properties intrinsic to the black seed await exploration.

Some Diseases Black Seed holds Potential to Address:

Type 2 Diabetes: A few grams of black seed every day can help reduce fasting glucose, decrease insulin resistance, increased beta-cell function, and reduce glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) in the human body. [6]

Helicobacter Pylori Infection: Black seeds are clinically helpful in anti-H. pylori-related infections, when compared to other available therapies. [7]

Epilepsy: Black seeds have been traditionally used for their anti-convulsive properties. Some studies on epileptic children (with conditions refractory to conventional drug treatment) found that water extract significantly reduced seizure activity. [8]

High Blood Pressure: A regular use of black seed extract is beneficial to lower blood pressure and its adverse effect in patients with mild hypertension. [9]

Asthma: Thymoquinone, one of the active ingredients in black seed, is superior to fluticasone. Studies found that boiled water extracts of black seed have a relatively potent anti-asthmatic effect on respiratory airways. [10]

Acute tonsillopharyngitis: Sore throat is primarily viral by pharyngeal inflammation or tonsil. Black seed capsules significantly benefit throat pain and substantially reduce the need for painkillers. [11]

Chemical Weapons Injury: A randomized controlled study on patients injured by chemical weapons found that boiled water extracts of black seed reduced chest wheezing, respiratory symptoms, and pulmonary function test values. It also reduced the need for drug treatment. [12]

Colon Cancer: Research suggests that black seed extract is favourable to the chemo agent 5-fluorouracil and suppresses colon cancer cell growth (with a higher safety profile). The black seed oil has significant inhibitory effects against colon cancer, without any side effects. So, this is something to be listed as a natural way to cure cancer [13].

MRSA: Black seed has anti-bacterial activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus clinical isolates. [14]

Opiate Addiction: Some studies on opiate addicts found black seed as an effective therapy for the long-term treatment of opioid dependence. [15]

The Bottom Line:

Nature has blessed us, humans, with a plethora of benefits from plants and many other ingredients available for free. Black seed is a blessing in disguise and can move mountains with faith if used appropriately. Life condenses itself down into a miniaturized holographic fragment in the form of this super-saturated state seed. Now that you understand the black seed’s immense and immortal power, it is time to try it for yourself.

We must realize the importance of food, herbs, seeds, plants, sunlight, air, clean water. If we formalize them in our lives, they likely gain a central place in medicine and facilitate the art of natural and self-healing. The conventional medical system is expensive and out of reach for many, but nature offers its abundance and bliss in a traditional form. Many red signals about the modern pharma industry may leave you astonished; read here!

Find here a list of lesser-known spices for natural cancer prevention and treatment. Herbal treatment yields immense potential and many therapeutic effects in cancer treatment. While you benefit from black seed, you can also explore some superfoods that can help with liver cleansing!

At Healing oracle, we are always vocal for natural living, which has always been a conventional way of living for us humans. Let’s grow and live a better life together!
