Cancer is the most dreadful of all the diseases. Typically growing in the form of tumors, new tumors emerge as cells take root and grow in different parts of the body. Classical ayurvedic texts have several references to cancer. It combines a number of approaches such as changes in lifestyle, herbal remedies, exercise and meditation to strengthen and purify the body and mind and increase spiritual awareness. Herbs offer great potential to stimulate the healing process and can even destroy cancer cells. Dietary patterns, foods, nutrients and other dietary constituents are closely associated with the risk for several types of cancer. Evidence suggests that diets high in fiber containing foods, rich in fruits, vegetables and grain products, carotenoids, vitamin C are associated with a reduced risk for cancer.
