Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. World Health Organization (WHO).
Many people don’t understand or realize the importance of good health and even if they do, they may not appreciate or value it. It is only when they get sick, injured or the quality of their life is under threat, that they truly recognize its importance as they face up to the potential loss of well being, mobility or life itself.
Many people make choices about how they live their lives that potentially damage their bodies or minds. Let us realize that ‘good health’ is important and ‘better health’ is central to human happiness and well being. It also makes an important contribution to economic progress, as a healthy population lives longer and is more productive.
The essence of this booklet is to help people make wise choices and to know that the prevention of sickness is better than and cheaper than the cure. Also even if the disease is already there, that hope is not lost but kept alive knowing that, there is a product designed by God Almighty to prevent, or cure all ailments except death. ie. The Black Seed. “God’s donation to the people for perfect health and longer life”.

35% plant fats and oils.
The active ingredients include;
Niggellone, thymoquinone and fixed oils, calcium, iron, linoleum acid, potassium, zinc, magnesium, selenium, vitamin A, B1, B2, Niacin and vitamin C.
Analysis of the blackseed concludes that it contains phosphate, iron and carbohydrate compounds together with antibiotics that are capable of killing germs.
Chemical analysis of the seed/grain also proved that it contains carotene which is converted in the liver into vitaminA; this useful vitamin is well known for its anticancer activity.

BRIEF RESEARCH DATA ON BLACK SEED OIL CURE
Research from around the world is producing increasing supportive documentation regarding black seeds vast healing properties. Due to its amazing effect on the immune system, black seed aids and supplements the body own ability to heal.
The Cancer Immune- Biology laboratory of South Caroline published results on a study they did on black seed. It stated that black seed generally helps stimulates the production of bone marrow and cells of the immune system. It increases the production of interferon, protect normal cell from the damaging effects of viral disease, destroys tumor cells and increase the number of antibody producing B-cells.
A Munich doctor (immunologist) Dr. Peter Schleicher recently in Germany closely co-operated with institution in the United State studied the effects of black cumin oil on human. He has as a result written two books on the subject containing numerous recipes for the treatment of a wide variety of ailments, far too numerous to be listed here.
The book written by Schleicher Peter M.D and Saleh Mohammed, M.D titled “Black Cumin: Magical Egyptian Herb explored the extraordinary effectiveness of black cumin (seed) against immune system disorder and hence it is an excellent research for anyone interested in the healing properties of this plant. They exposed to the reader everything you need to know in order to use black seed for the prevention and treatment of illness including specific recipes for infections and allergies and precise directions for their preparations (black seed research data).
Anti inflammations and Analgesic (pain relief)
Fans Wagner (2013) made a compilation of researches made on the healing benefits of black seed extracts.He noted that scientists around the world have confirmed the antibacterial and anti-mycotic effects of blackseed oil. He further stated that health practitioners in various countries around the world (professors’M.Menver and G.Rietmuller) are using the blackseed oil as analgesic against Inflammations of all sorts as well as neurodermitis and other fungi infections.
Black seed extract have been found of help to stimulate bone marrow and immune cells. A scientist of the Cancer Immune-Biology laboratory wrote that the oil raises the interferon production, protects normal cells against cell destroying effects of viruses, destroy tumor cells and raises the number of antibiotics producing B cells. These functions make the oil ideal for the prevention and treatment of cancer. Scientists are now busy finding the effects of the black seed oil in regard to various other human health conditions. At the international cancer congress in New Delhi (2013) anti tumor effect of black cumin oil has been introduced to many scientist and doctors.
Dr. Peter Schleicher (1986) an immunologists who was the youngest member of world academy of scientists examined black seed oil in his institute to find new therapies for chronic illness and its effect. His finding indicates, by using the blackseed oil, valuable unsaturated fatty acids, for example linoleic and Gammalinolen acid, get into the organism. The linoleic acid stabilizes the cell membranes and prostaglandin has the effect of inhibiting inflammation. This way the immune reaction that causes the illness and which could have been the start of many chronic illnesses like pimples, and hay fever or even cancer are stopped. The substances in black seed oil stabilize the excessive T-cell function of the person suffering from allergies.
Immune System (Asthma, bronchitis, impotency, depression etc).Studies also testify that an immune system which has gone wrong can again be regulated by the strong effect of black seed oil. Schleicher (1980) tested the effect on 600 patients and confirms the cure for allergies, at about 70% of the patients, who generally have a weak resistance and are prone to suffer from infections. Thus he included the oil with his preventive treatment against cold and influenza. In the Middle East and Asia, this oil has been used for thousands of years as a remedy for all sorts of allergies, inflammation and menstruation problem, boosting moral, depression, bronchitis, asthma and neuro-dermatitis, as well as four digestion and even impotency.
In the west the effect of the oil has been used for a long time against wind dysentery, stomach, and lung diseases, jaundice, diuretic problems and to increase nursing mother’s milk. This oil has been forgotten for so long due to advances in chemistry and pharmacy. Dr. Schleicher approved that the reason why this oil is so exceptional is that its component parts act in unison to produce an optimum effect for so many complaints, but one has to make sure that only the pure and tested oil is being used.
Arthritis and Rheumatism
In 1960, Professor El-Dakhakny reported that black seed oil has anti-inflammatory effect and it could be useful for relieving the effects of arthritis.
In February 1995, doctors at King’s college London, U. K. investigated the use of black seed oil for the treatment of rheumatism and inflammatory diseases. Their report concluded that black seed does contain strong anti rheumatic qualities and as such the oil can be used in the treatment for rheumatism and related inflammatory diseases.
Immune System Support
In 1986 Drs. El-Kadi and Kandil, at I.I MER Panama City. Florida investigated the effect of black seed on the immune system and studied the effect of one gram taken twice daily in human volunteers. They concluded that blackseed “maybe of great practical significance since the oil could play an important role in the treatment of cancer, AIDS, and other disease conditions associated with immune deficiency states”.
These results were confirmed by a study published in the Saudi pharmaceutical journal in 1993 by Dr. Basil Ali and his colleagues from the College by medicine at king Faisal University. (Translated from an article by Hans Wagner in black seed Research Data)
In 1997 researcher at the department of Pharmacy University of Dhaka, Bangladesh, conducted a study in which the antibacterial activity of the oil of black seed was compared with 5 antibiotics, Ampicillin, Tetracycline, Cotrimazole, Gentamicin and Nalidixic acid. The oil proved to be more effective against many strains of bacteria, including those known to be highly resistant to drugs. These include V. cholera, E. coli (a common infectious agent found in undercooked meats) and all strains of shigella spp – except shigella dysentriae. Most strains of shigilla have been shown to rapidly become resistant to commonly used antibiotic and chemo therapeutic agents.
Dr. Haq in research on human volunteers at the department of biological and medical research centre in Riyadh, Saudi Arabic showed that black seed enhanced the ratio between helper T-cells and suppresser T-cells by 55% with a 30% average enhancement of the natural killer cell activity. These results are effective enough to consider the oil being used in the treatment of AIDS. These results also shed light on why black seed oil has been shown to be very effective in helping treat immune related disorder including psoriasis and cancer.
Many oncologists now viewed black seed as a serious herbal remedy to assist in the treatment of cancer. The U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have granted 2 patents that involve black seed oil for treating cancer, preventing the side effect of anticancer chemotherapy, and for increasing the immune system functions in human. U.S. Pat No 5, 482,711 and 5,653.981.
The oil was also found to diminish toxic side effects caused by several other chemotherapeutic drugs such as cisplatin and doxorubicin (Hens Wagner, 2013).
In 2003, at the Jackson state University, U.S.A.
