Simply put, mustard is possibly the most nutrient-rich, anti-cancer food condiment still available in the western world today. And why is that? Because it’s made from mustard seed, and mustard seed contains Allyl Isothiocyanate (AITC).

AITC has been scientifically shown to “strongly inhibit bladder cancer development and progression,” according to this 2010 study published in the science journal Carcinogenesis.

 

But what’s even more amazing is that the AITC found in mustard seeds actually blocks the cancer-causing compounds. According to this 2010 study in the International Journal of Toxicology, “AITC protected HepG2 cells against Cytotoxic and genotoxic effects caused by nitrite and the Nitrosamines.”

 

AITC has also been proven to reduce ascites through antiangiogenic,  proapoptotic  and antimicrobial activities,  allyl isothiocyanate has been proven to inhibit ascites tumor growth in vivo. Additionally, bioavailability of AITC is extremely high, as nearly 90% of orally administered AITC is absorbed.

The early Greeks, Romans, and Europeans have used a mustard bath for generations. It was one way to keep disease and viruses out of the body.  It has been used in India in the Ayurvedic healing tradition for many years.

They still use it today to detox the body of stress, anxiety and tension increase blood circulation, draw away infection, inflammation and congestion. The ancient Greeks believed it had been created by Asclepius, the god of healing, as a gift to mankind. Over the years, mustard has been prescribed for scorpion stings, snake bites, epilepsy, toothache, stiff neck, rheumatism, colic, and respiratory troubles.

 

 

The mustard bath for detoxification and purification of the body. It has been known to relieve of cold or flu symptoms, help lose weight, soothe sore muscles and stimulate the immune system. You can also use the mustard rubbing oil after the bath, which continues the healing actions.

 

In truth, anti-cancer compounds are found throughout the food supply: in carrots, oranges, celery, broccoli, grapes, nuts and more. They happen to be highly concentrated in mustard seeds, too, and typical mustard products often contain other ingredients that also show powerful anti-cancer properties.

As medicine, mustard musters up more than 40 restorative properties, from poultices and plasters to infusions, baths, liniments and antiseptic solutions. Ancient medical texts mention using mustard to treat pulmonary disease, congestion, bronchitis, weak appetite, constipation, digestive weakness, sore throats, toothaches, hiccups, snake and scorpion bites, skin rashes, rheumatism, arthritis and many other ailments.

 

Before the advent of aspirin, people made mustard plasters (also called poultices) and applied them to the body to relieve aches and pains. They also used mustard in baths (for the feet or the entire body) to increase blood flow to inflamed tissues.

Before the advent of aspirin, people made mustard plasters (also called poultices) and applied them to the body to relieve aches and pains. They also used mustard in baths (for the feet or the entire body) to increase blood flow to inflamed tissues and literally suck out poisons causing them to be released through sweating, urine and stool. This detoxification has been shown in clinical studies  on mice to reduce ascites secretion and tumor cell proliferation by about 80% and inhibited vascular endothelial growth factor expression.

 

The bottom line? If you want to stay healthy, make sure your diet includes plenty of real, authentic mustard and the regular mustard bath.
