Preface: Unraveling History
From investigating the seldom touched journals of former New York State senator, Gabriel Furman, I was awed at the various methods people of the 19th century used to cure cancer. In volumes 6 and 7 of Furman's journals he explains in depth the effectiveness of herbal remedies and the procedures used to cure tumors with the use of specific herbs.
The use of herbal remedies to cure illness have been in practice for thousands of years, infact, herbal medicine is biblical! Many doubt or simply ignore the relevance of herbal medicine towards treating or curing the illnesses that plague us today, especially cancer. Specific plant species have been proven to be more effective and less harmful than many of the chemotherapy drugs on the market. So why then isn't the government encouraging further research on herbal medicine and it's effects on cancer? It's simple. The money. Herbal medicine is overshadowed due to the huge profits in manufacturing and prescribing drugs. Through out this site I'll go in depth on the components of the remedies mentioned in Gabriel Furman's journals as well a background on the drug industry.
