AIM OF THE STUDY: The seeds of nigella (black cumin) (Nigella sativa L.) have been widely used as a natural remedy, either alone or in combination with bee products, for the treatment of many acute as well as chronic conditions for centuries, especially in the Middle East and Southeast Asia. In consideration of potential utilization, in recent years the seeds have been extensively studied in terms of pharmacological effects. It has been shown that the seeds have significant effects on multiple biological systems. In addition, the protective roles of the seeds with bee products (honey and wax) have been recently proved. This study reports the palaeoethnobotanical find of nigella seeds recovered in a pilgrim flask from the Old Hittite Period level of Boyali Höyük (Mound), dating from around 1650 BC, in north-central Turkey. The study also deals with a comparison between the chemical properties of the Boyali Höyük nigella seeds (ancient seeds) and those of modern nigella seeds. The results of chemical analysis of the debris found in the pilgrim flask to test the presence of bee product are also presented here.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: All macro-remains found in the pilgrim flask were first examined under a zoom stereomicroscope for specific determination and all were identified as nigella seeds using the reference collection of modern seeds. Ethyl alcohol and dichloromethane (Aldrich, Buch-Switzerland) were used for the extraction of the ancient seeds and modern nigella seeds to trace both polar and non-polar chemical compounds by a Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometer (GC-MS) system. Characterization of the chemical compounds in propolis extracts was also made by GC-MS.

RESULTS: The GC-MS chromatograms showed that the ancient and modern seed samples were similar in essential oil acids. Many organic compounds of bee products, such as wax and phenolic antioxidants, were also detected in the container.

CONCLUSION: The results of this study indicated that the Hittite pilgrim flask contained a pure cache of nigella seeds mixed with bee products, wax and propolis. There has been no direct archaeological evidence for medicinal use of nigella seeds with bee products by the inhabitants of Boyali Höyük or the Hittities so far. However, in view of the folkloric use of nigella seeds in combination with bee products for treatments of disorders and promotion of health, it is thought that the Boyali Höyük material would represent a remedy used by the Hittites in Anatolia about 3600 years ago.

Ithaca, NY Company, Bionexus, Introduces First Natural Skin Care Lotion for Dogs Containing Standardized Nigella sativa Extracts

ITHACA, N.Y., April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Linda M. Pacioretty, Bionexus CEO, today announced the national market launch of the Company's first canine product, DogsBestFriend™. This innovative, all natural, skin-care lotion for dogs combines one of the oldest traditional medicines, Nigella sativa seed oils, with the newest extraction technology, supercritical fluid extraction. The result is a breakthrough, natural replacement for hydrocortisone, antihistamines and topical antibiotics powerful enough to help combat dermal inflammation, itching, bacterial and fungal infections and pain, yet safe enough to use on dogs of all ages.

Bionexus' patent-pending, GellX™ extraction technology and proprietary combination process, produces a healing, moisturizing lotion that contains a unique, hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory combination of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, thymoquinone, retinoids, and mixed tocopherols without the use of toxic chemicals.

"DogsBestFriend is the result of seven years of laboratory studies with thymoquinone and N. sativa extracts," added Dr. John G. Babish, Bionexus' Chairman and Chief Science Officer.

Bionexus became interested in N. sativa while characterizing the anti-inflammatory activity of thymoquinone in several cell-culture systems. In the laboratory, however, commercial sources of N. sativa oil did not reproduce the anti-inflammatory effects of thymoquinone. This inconsistency led to a five-year search for an extraction process that would produce reliably potent, anti-inflammatory extracts from N. sativa seeds. Bionexus' GellX™ patent-pending, nontoxic extraction and recombination technology represents the cumulative efforts of this work.

The national launch of DogsBestFriend follows four-months of test marketing in the northeast. Describing this period, Dr. Pacioretty noted, "Our early clinical testing suggested hot-spot remission could be seen in as little as one day. While this result seemed too good to be expected commercially, our test market customers also noticed the surprisingly rapid relief offered by DogsBestFriend was unlike any product they had previously used." Typical customer comments regarding hot spots included, "...after only two applications, the hot spot was completely dried up," and "My dog has never had a hot spot that she didn't need oral antibiotics to clear up ... THRILLED with this product."

Dog owners also praised DogsBestFriend's anti-itch and moisturizing qualities: "I put it on my girl who had scratched herself raw and it soothed her skin. In a few days her skin was healed up. We love this product."

The Blessed Seed for toothache

Toothache can be very painful and can occur from a variety of reasons.

If we care for our teeth, ie. daily cleaning them, these dilemma can still occur.

Black seed oil has been proven to be helpful in many cases simply by numbing the pain.

The anti inflammatory components in the blessed seed oil reduce swelling and its anti microbial components help to lessen the infection.

The blessed seed has been used for thousands of years for a natural home remedy for numerous ailments.

Only recently have we in the West been reintroduced to this ancient herbal remedy as we lost touch with herbs for healing with the modern pharmaceuticals that we are now accustomed to. The blessed seed's main advantage to modern drugs is that it has no known side affects. The vast majority of westerners that have tried it have been astounded how well they have responded to the health giving qualities of this remarkable herb.

Only some find that it is too pungent to taste, where they may take capsules that totally hide the taste.

In this time where we are inundated with more and more modern diseases the time is clear to look at a gift from nature that was clearly created for our optimum health.

Black cumin seed extract


Black cumin seed (Nigella sativa ) is an annual herbaceous plant and a member of the Ranunculaceae (buttercup) family. The fruit of the plant, the black seeds, accounts for its name. Black cumin seed (also called black seed) should not be confused with the herb, cumin (Cumunum cyminum, which is found in many grocery stores.

Considered native to the Mediterranean region, black cumin seed is cultivated in North Africa, Asia, and southeastern Europe. The largest producers of black cumin seed are Egypt, India, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, and Turkey. Other species, such as Turkish black cumin (Nigella damascena ), are not used medicinally; and one type, Nigella garidella, is even poisonous.

Playfully referred to as "Love in the Mist," the black cumin seed plant has leaves that grow in pairs. The lower leaves are short and supported by slender stems, while the upper leaves generally grow to approximately 4 inches (10 cm) in length. The stalk of the plant, with its bluish white flower petals, can grow up to 18 inches (46 cm) in height while its fruit matures. At first, the seeds (the fruit of the plant) are held in a capsule in the center of the flower. The capsule opens upon maturity, revealing lightly colored seeds. It is only upon their exposure to air that the seeds become black.

Most often, the extract is produced by a process referred to as cold pressing. Temperatures no higher than 140–176°F (60–80°C) are applied to the seeds to help release the oil and preserve its benefits.

Rich with compounds such as nigellone and thymoquinone, black cumin seed is thought to contain over 100 ingredients; many remain unknown. However, experts agree that the most important compounds contained in the extract are the fatty acids and nutrients. Some components of black cumin seed extract are as follows:

myristic acid

palmitic acid

palmitoleic acid

stearic acid

oleic acid

linoleic acid (omega-6)

linolenic acid (omega-3)

arachidonic acid












General use

Black cumin seed has been used for centuries to treat respiratory and digestive problems, parasites, and inflammation. In ancient times, it was a remedy for a variety of health conditions including, colds, infections , headaches, and toothaches. The pharoahs' personal doctors are reported to have offered black cumin seed as a digestive aid after large meals. In fact, the extract was found in the tomb of King Tutankhamun, presumably to protect him in the afterlife.

Black cumin was also used as a remedy for skin diseases, dry skin, dandruff , and wounds .

At one time, black cumin seed was highly valued in Europe, but by the eighteenth century it had lost popularity, and was primarily used as a garden decoration. However, black cumin seed extract has regained popularity, and is now more widely used as a remedy in Europe and North America.

Many herbalists in current times embrace the healing properties of black cumin seed extract. For example, the extract is sometimes used externally to treat such skin care problems as psoriasis, eczema , and dry skin, and internally to treat stomach problems, respiratory ailments, and allergies , as well as to improve circulation and the immune system. In recent years, the extract has been the subject of immune system research.

One reason that is often given for the medicinal value of black cumin seed extract is its richness in polyunsaturated fatty acids, which help to produce prostaglandin E1. Prostaglandin E1 has many functions in the body, particularly in relation to the immune system, sugar metabolism, skin infections, and blood clots . It is also believed to protect the stomach lining.

Experts point out that the medicinal value may be provided by a unique and mysterious synergy (combined action) between the multitude of compounds present in the seeds. In addition, the extract, which is more concentrated than the seeds alone, is said to have greater healing power. A study at Cairo University in Eqypt showed a boost in antibacterial activity when the extract was used in combination with antibiotics such as streptomycin and gentamicin. In the same study, it showed additional antibacterial function in combination with erythromycin, tobramycin, doxycycline, and ampicillin, to kill E. Coli and the pathogenic yeast, Candida albicans. In addition, the study showed that the extract destroyed non-fatal subcutaneous staphylococcal infection in mice.

In 2003, one study noted the antifungal activity of black cumin seed extract against Candida albicans. In the study, mice were injected with Candida albicans, producing colonies of the organism in their liver, spleen, and kidneys. The researchers found that treatment with black cumin seed extract 24 hours after inoculation inhibited growth of the Candida albicans. With continued treatment, the extract significantly decreased the amount of Candida albicans found in the kidneys, liver, and spleen.

Aside from verifying its antibacterial and antifungal properties, researchers in recent years have tested the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects of black cumin seed extract. In 1995, a group of scientists from the Department of Pharmacy at King's College in London found that the extract contains these properties, and is an antioxidant as well. They believe the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant abilities may be linked to ingredients such as thymoquinone and unsaturated fatty acids. Ultimately, the researchers concluded that black cumin seed extract is a justified treatment for rheumatism and related inflammatory diseases.

In 2001, a study performed at the Department of Pharmacology at King Faisal University in Saudi Arabia, reported anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity from the use of black cumin seed extract in animals. Paw edema (swelling) was reduced, as was reaction time in response to extreme heat. A 2003 study confirmed the analgesic effects of the extract. Studies in this area are likely to continue well into the future.

Researchers have also investigated and verified the extract's antihistamine activity, focusing on nigellone, an ingredient in black cumin seed extract. One 1993 study found that nigellone acted as an inhibitory agent on histamine (a substance involved in an allergic response, causing widening of blood vessels and tightening of bronchial passages) by inhibiting protein kinase C, known to initiate histamine release. In 2003, another study concluded that black seed oil is an effective treatment for allergies.


There are many applications made with black cumin seed extract. It can be found in teas, cough syrups, wound salves, compresses, massage oils, and other products. Black seed honey, soap, shampoo, and creams are all available commercially.

The extract has a strong flavor, which is improved by mixing it with honey. Herbal teas also help dilute its strength. As with any product used for medicinal purposes, it is important to read and follow the label instructions and warnings.

Although black cumin seed extract is not normally associated with severe skin irritation, a skin patch test should be conducted before using it for the first time. A small amount of diluted extract is placed on the inside of one elbow and covered with a bandage. After 24 hours, any redness or irritation is indicative of a negative reaction. This test should be done before a person proceeds with more extensive use.

Black cumin seed extract, in these dosages, is used as a remedy for the following conditions:

Headache. A few drops of the diluted extract are rubbed on the patient's forehead. Some patients may also find it helpful to take 1/2 teaspoon of the extract after breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Cough. The dose is 1/2 teaspoon of diluted black cumin seed extract in the morning. A dry cough may require one teaspoon of the extract twice a day, mixed with one cup of coffee or hot tea. The extract can be rubbed on the chest and back for additional relief.

Common cold. One teaspoon of the extract is mixed with hot lemon tea and honey two or three times a day.

Diarrhea. One teaspoon of extract is mixed with one cup of yogurt twice a day.


Black cumin seed extract is not to be used during pregnancy .

Its safety in young children has not been established. Patients with liver or kidney disease are advised not to use this product unless a physician directs them to do so.

Black cumin seed extract is said to lower blood sugar levels; therefore, a diabetic patient is advised to consult with a physician before using.

Side effects

In general, if used as directed, black cumin seed extract is not associated with serious side effects. However, it has been reported that black cumin seed extract has a very low degree of toxicity, and may cause significant negative effects on liver and kidney function. A recommended daily allowance (RDA) has not been established for the extract, so it is wise to consult with a physician before beginning any internal treatment.


There does not appear to be a list of serious interactions associated with the use of black cumin seed extract; however, it is recommended that anyone taking prescription drugs seek the opinion of a physician and/or pharmacist before using black cumin seed extract in combination with the prescribed treatment.

Background Nigella sativa is a herb from the Mediterranean region with antidiabetic, bronchodilator, antioxidant, hepatoprotective, lipid lowering, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.

Purpose This study aimed to reveal the antifungal activity of aqueous, methanolic and chloroform extracts obtained from the plant seeds, compared with the effect of traditional antifungals.

Materials and methods Using standard mycological diagnostic methodology The authors isolated and identified 20 strains of Candida albicans from pathological products collected from patients hospitalised in different departments of the Craiova Emergency Hospital. Aqueous, methanolic and chloroform extracts were made from the seeds of Nigella sativa, in decreasing dilutions, in which Wattman filter paper discs were soaked and dried and then used to achieve the antifungal graph by using the Kirby-Bauer diffusion technique. Simultaneously, the testing was repeated using standard antifungal disks (Becton Dickinson) and the two sets of results compared. The antifungal effect was assessed by measuring the diameter of the inhibition zone, noting the concentration per disk.

Results The results show that methanolic extracts of Nigella sativa have the strongest antifungal effect followed by the chloroform extracts. Aqueous extracts showed no antifungal activity.

Conclusions The research shows treatment with natural products in a good light as an alternative for treating fungal infections. The authors envisage Nigella sativa extract enhancing the effect of conventional therapy.

Nigella sativa seeds and Bee honey (BH) had been widely used in traditional medicine. In the present study we assessed their effect in treating asthma. A dose of 2 g of whole N. sativa seeds and 1 teaspoon full of BH per day were taken by the subjects -5 asthmatics and 22 non-asthmatics, 8 to 40 years in Khartoum for three month. They were also asked to smell crushed seeds that were warped in porous cloth three times a day. We assessed the effects of both on pulmonary, renal and hepatic function. Regarding pulmonary function, there was a significant increase in forced vital capacity (FVC) (P=0.023) in asthmatics' group and peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) (P = was 0.049) in non-asthmatics' group. For evaluating the toxicity of both renal and hepatic functions, both were assessed before and after treatment. Hepatic enzymes were spared whereas serum creatinine in non-asthmatics and blood urea in asthmatics and in those having upper limit blood urea decreased significantly (creatinine (P=0.049) and urea (P value = 0.023, 0.017, respectively). In conclusion both N. sativa and BH seem to have some benefits to asthmatics with no hepato-renal toxicity.

Control of disease including cancer with Food

Friday, February 24th, 2012

The concept of control of disease with food was first introduced to me decades ago by my close friend Barbara Kim Thigpen.

This is the research interest of her life and she is a very knowledgeable self taught individual. She knows more about nutrition as medicine than anyone I know. She should write some books on it to condense her research for the rest of us. Someday perhaps. While I was researching for a treatment for a recent patient to the Camelot clinic I ran into new research papers published on the NIH website called PubMed that sparked my interest. These papers were the result of a search on PubMed for nigella sativa cancer also called Black Cumin. It is an African spice well known in Egypt during the time of the pharaohs, King Tut was buried with a jar of the oil so it was highly regarded. Hipocrates said of it that it would cure almost anything except for death. My friend Kim would talk about it endlessly extolling its benefits and virtues. I was focused on alternative energy and electric propulsion at that time so it went in one ear and out the other.

Now years later while I am Chief of R&D for Camelot Cancer Care it suddenly becomes important to me and I am struck by how much of the information about this remarkable healing food substance I had retained from years of listening to Kim talk about this wonderful substance endlessly. It is funny. Men are not being rude when they kind of tune out the most important women in their lives. If you give them the information and they seem to shut down or ignore you ladies keep trying because while we might be focused on other things if we care about the person saying it then we are listening but just can not be overwhelmed at the time with other information when we are trying to accomplish other things requiring another intelligence skill set then the one you are accessing.

That said we move on to the second wonderful product that heals us from cancer. Turmeric. Curcumin is the active ingredient in Turmeric. This gives the Turmeric spice its yellow color. It is a rather dye like substance but cancer and a lot of other diseases just can’t stand it. PubMed search for Curcumin Cancer

I was researching for a treatment for a Liposarcoma patient and found that in a search for Curcumin Cancer Liposarcoma lt revealed this recent published article that showed a great deal of efficacy for curcumin in the treatment of this hard to treat liposarcoma. It immediately reminded me of Kim and her years long discussion with me about Curcumin at a time when I was researching something else and did not pay her much mind. (She is linked into this article as you might have guessed by now)

I then created a topical protocol based on this research data and our own in house clinical data for our patient and gave the patient a suggested protocol for the oral administration of this wonderful but ancient miracle food for use in conjunction with this new topical treatment. Since there is no noted cure for this disease if this treatment helps it will validate this early research finding. The publish date is only Jan 31 so it is likely that this is the first treatment for humans yet devised for this malignancy based on this recently published research.

When the treatment includes a diet change and some topical cream then why wait for some human trials. I gave it straight to the first patient I know with the ailment. If it helps or not I will report back here minus any personal data on the patient of course.

Kim mentioned many more natural food substances that would heal but I will wait for my follow on interview with her or some future book she publishes to discuss those.

Black seed is an effective antiinflammatory and analgesic substance


Animal studies have confirmed the popular claim that black seed is an effective antiinflammatory and analgesic substance. The mechanism by which black seed exerts its antiinflammatory action appears to be as a potent inhibitor of eicosanoid generation, namely thromboxane B 2 and leucotrienes B 4, by inhibiting both cyclooxygenase and lipooxygenase, respectively. In other studies, thymoquinone has been reported to have potent superoxide anion scavenging abilities and to inhibit iron-dependent microsomal lipid peroxidation. This is promising considering the fact that superoxide reacts with protein and non-protein sulfhydryls and polyunsaturated fats and initiates sprecific reactions, thus damaging cells and causing inflammation. Meanwhile free radical oxidative stress is implicated in many inflammatory diseases. Therefore, it is reasonable that the anti-inflammatory activities of thymoquinone are attributed to its antioxidant effects. Interestingly, it was found that the whole oil had both antioxidant and anti-eicosanoid effects greater than thymoquinone, the oil’s active constituent.

A recent study found black seed and thymoquinone may be an effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. This comes as no surprise, since it has been shown that thymoquinone is an inhibitor that is more potent than indomethacin of COX-2-catalyzed PGE2 production.

The immuno-modulatory properties of black seed and thymoquinone support its traditional use as a treatment for rheumatism and related inflammatory disorders.

Preventative care at Brooksville Cardiology


Hernando Today

Published: March 01, 2012

Chronic diseases are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States, advises the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Chronic diseases are heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and arthritis and are the most common and costly of all health problems for Americans.

These chronic diseases are also the most preventable, stressing the importance for early detection.

Some believe early detection, like an ounce of prevention, is worth a pound of cure.

One Hernando county physician has implemented a practical approach for local patients to spot small problems before they become big ones.

Dr. Adel M. Eldin, M.D., specializing in internal medicine and cardiology, his practice is Brooksville Cardiology, explained his health and wellness program, which focuses on preventative care. He presented his program to more than 50 participants gathered at Palace Grand in Spring Hill, listening to testimonials from patients who have experienced success with the cardiology center.

"It's possible to detect problems before there's an emergency and 95 percent preventable, given our knowledge, medications and lifestyle modifications," Eldin said.

But there's one problem, Medicare and other insurance companies don't cover preventive screenings without the presence of symptoms, he advised.

"Insurance focuses on illness, rather than wellness," he said. "Wellness is there for you."

"When you invest in your health, you won't have to be part of the insurance jungle out there." Eldin said. "I've spent five years introducing a new program that identifies risks, teaches preventive care and provides an on going partnership in healthy living."

Brooksville Cardiology is a medically supervised program to prevent disease and guide people into health-related choices. They review family and medical history, assess current status, identify areas that need attention and implement a plan. The patient is involved in the decisions for well being. His staff is trained to perform screenings, non-invasively to look inside arteries for plaque buildup that can cause strokes (brain shock), aneursyms and heart attacks.

One patient drives from Ocala to come to Brooksville Cardiology.

"Dr. Eldin showed me more compassion than any doctor my whole life," said Errol Wiles. "I signed up for this program two months ago. It's been a positive experience."

He mentioned that he plans to move to Jacksonville, but will continue being a patient, driving to Brooksville for appointments.

"We become your partner and coach, not just a specialist attending to one symptom at a time," said Dr. Eldin. "We have a model we are proud of."

The member fee is $150 per month. Covered medical services include two office visits for routine check-ups, baseline cardio-vascular testing including treadmill exercise stress test, echocardiogram, vascular studies, 24-hour Holter monitor testing, monthly Coumadin check, interrogation of cardiac devices, annual flu shot, year round supply of recommended supplement of Black seed, e-newsletter, personal access to physician through email up to one time per week and referrals to other specialists when needed. Members also receive access to a webinar which features educational programs on health.

There are no denials for coverage under the plan for pre-existing conditions and no additional payments are needed for tests such as co-pays. Additionally, there are no referrals or pre-authorizations for testing. Open enrollment is available throughout the year.

"This is the way health-care is headed," he said. "We want to boost the immune system and prevent diseases."

One supplement he recommends is Black seed, or Nigella sativa. It's also referred to as black cumin.

"Nigella sativa (black seed) is an important medicinal herb. In many Arabian, Asian and African countries, black seed oil is used as a natural remedy for a wide range of diseases, including various allergies," according to a study found on the U.S. National Library of Medicine and National Institutes for Health website.

Black seed oil proved to be an effective adjuvant for the treatment of allergic diseases, based on the research.

The seeds/oil has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antipyretic, antimicrobial and antineoplastic activity. The oil decreases blood pressure and increases respiration, according to other research regarding its pharmacological and toxicological properties.

The seeds have been used in the Middle East to treat asthma, bronchitis, rheumatism and related inflammatory diseases.

Black Seed Oil and Asthma

Asthma is thought to be caused by a number of environmental and genetic factors and is heavily influenced by the immune system. New research has shown that the oil of a tiny black seed from Western Asia may be the key to both the prevention and treatment of immune-related Asthma.

The Nigella sativa (black seed) oil contains over 100 known health-promoting properties including a wide range of the most potent antioxidants, B vitamins, 15 amino-acids, essential fatty acids, and an array of vital organic minerals. However, researchers believe that it is a substance called ‘nigellone’ that may be the real hero as it protects sufferers from histamine-induced bronchial spasms and significantly relieves the symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, and general coughing.

Twenty-nine asthmatic adults were randomly divided into a control group (14 patients) and treatment group (15 patients), and monitored for 3 months.Asthma symptom score, asthma severity, frequency of symptoms/week and wheezing were recorded on the first visit, then again after 45 days and finally, at the end of the study. Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) were also measured, and the drug regimen of the patients was evaluated at three different visits.
The researchers found that all asthma symptoms, frequency of asthma symptoms/week, chest wheezing, and PFT values in the treatment group significantly improved in the second and third visits compared with the first visit. In addition, further improvement of chest wheezing and severity of disease on the third visit were observed compared with the second visit in this group. Most significantly, by the the third visit (90 days) all symptoms in the treatment group were significantly different from those of the control group.

In addition, the researchers observed that the usage of inhaler and oral ß-agonists, oral corticosteroid, oral theophylline and even inhaler corticosteroid by those patients in the treatment group decreased by the end of the study while there were no obvious changes in usage of the drugs in control patients.

The researchers concluded that the results of the study indicate that Nigella Sativa Oil both alleviates and prevents asthma symptoms and warrant further research. For more information on Nigella Sativa visit:

Black Seed Oil For Hemorrhoids?

Black seed oil for hemorrhoids sufferers? There are those who claim that black seed oil will cure any ailment from cancer to flat feet. A miracle cure? I decided to investigate and see what use black seed oil would be for hemorrhoids sufferers in particular. In my researches I started with Wikipedia and ended up at the British Library for nearly three weeks. This is what I found about the healing properties (or otherwise) of black seed oil for hemorrhoids and other ailments…

Black seed oil comes from an annual flowering plant called nigella sativa, which is native to south and south-west Asia. Its fruit is a large inflated capsule, full of seeds. These black seeds are used as a spice and are often called kalon ji – or black onion seeds. There are many names and it is sometimes confused with cumin, sesame, fenugreek and other aromatic seeds. The oil that is obtained from these seeds is said to have miraculous healing powers, especially in Islamic cultures. The sayings of Prophet Mohammed underline the significance of black onion seeds. According to a hadith told by Abu Hurerah, he says, “I have heard Hazrat Muhammad saying that the black granules (kalonji) is the remedy for all diseases except death.”

The black onion seeds have been traditionally used in the Middle East, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and other South Asian countries to treat illnesses such as asthma, bronchitis, rheumatism and other similar inflammatory diseases. Its many uses have earned black cumin seed the Arabic approbation Habbatul barakah, meaning the “seed of blessing”. But what use is black seed oil for hemorrhoids sufferers?

Black Seed Oil For Hemorrhoids Research?

Aside from plenty of anecdotal evidence – much of it from Islamic countries – I could find no scientific evidence that there has been any use of black seed oil for hemorrhoids research in clinical trials, which is a pity. But reported used of black seed oil in treating inflamation and skin conditions does point to a successful outcome in the use of black seed oil for hemorrhoids cases.

As I say, black seed (nigella sativa) oil has been successfully used to treat skin conditions like boils and eczema all over the Middle East and Asia for centuries. It is also said to be wonderful for cold symptoms, although one does wonder why western chemists have not stolen this idea and included it in their branded medicines if it is so successful. Quite a few researchers have also studied the reaction of nigella sativa towards cancer, and the results have been very heartening.

Clinical trials showed that Nigella Sativa oil (not black cumin seed oil) contains nigellone, which was shown to protect guinea pigs from histamine-induced bronchial spasms.

Black Seed Oil For Hemorrhoids & Other Scientific findings:

An unpublished report from an Ayurvedic Center in Kerala showed that two out of three patients with hemorrhoids reported no further symptoms after using black seed oil for hemorrhoids poultices.

The presence of an antitumor sterol, beta-sitosterol, shows that the oil’s traditional use in treating tumors and abscesses of the eyes, abdomen and liver is sound.

Nigella sativa has also been reported to reduce calculi formation on the kidneys of rat in tests.

Thymoquinone, an extract of nigella sativa seed oil, was shown in tests at the Kimmel Cancer Center in Philadelphia to block pancreatic cancer cell growth.

Nigella sativa oil has been effective in treating dependence on opium-derived narcotics.

The search for proof that black seed oil for hemorrhoids sufferers is helpful, turned up some slightly disturbing results. It seems that nigella sativa oil contains melanthin, tannin, nigilline and damascene. Melanthin can be very toxic in fairly sizable doses and nigelline is a paralytic, so it is clear that care must be taken when administering nigella sativa oil. Perhaps it should be looked at in conjunction with complimentary (and 100% effective) natural hemorrhoids remedies such as that provided by world-renowned health expert Jessica Wright.
