There have been more than 250 studies done to show the efficacy of Nigella sativa. Recently in the news we have been hearing more and more about its effect on pancreatic cancer. Besides pancreatic cancer, breast, colon and prostate cancers have also been studied and shown positive results. Nigella has more than 100 chemical compounds and some of the ingredients are yet to be discovered and identified.
Drs. Ek-Kadi and Kandil at I.I.M.E.R. Panama City, Florida in 1986 investigated how Nigella sativa affected the immune system. They studied a group of human volunteers who were given 1 gram of Nigella sativa twice a day.
They stated at the end of the study that "These findings may be of great practical significance since a natural immune enhancer like the black seed could play an important role in the treatment of cancer, AIDS, and other disease conditions associated with immune deficiency states."
Then again in another study published in the Saudi Pharmaceutical Journal in 1993 by Dr. Basil Ali and his colleagues from the College of Medicine at King Faisal University.
One of the best results that evolved in all these studies was the effect Nigella sativa has on the immune system. Simply by taking Nigella sativa daily you can improve your immune system to fight off disease. Is this miracle in a bottle really to be believed? Surely there are some precautions and some guidelines to be followed.
Can you be cured of cancer if you eat pie, chips and cola, but take Nigella sativa daily? Of course not. Following a strict diet along with the taking of this valuable herbal supplement will treat the disease in most cases. Although it is a Prophet medicine, you must follow some simple tips when taking and using Nigella sativa.
Where Can You Purchase Nigella Sativa?
There are as many websites that sell Nigella sativa as there are stars in the sky. You can do a search on the internet and find many that are promising you the moon, but wait let's be sensible. Not all Nigella is the same and you should look for a company with a return policy, guarantee and a phone number to call them on in case of problems with the product.
Look for a company with a record of experience with the black seeds and look for a company that supplies cold pressed, not just organic. Organic seems to be a term used quite often these days, but what you are really looking for is a thick, cold pressed oil stored in a glass bottle.
Raw Vs Organic Honey
The Prophetic way to take this remedy is with honey. Prophet Mohammad said, " ”There is healing in Black Seed for all diseases except death.” He also said to take it often. What does taking it often mean? You should consider black seed like you would a regular supplement that needs to be taken daily. By taking the black seed daily you improve your immune system and thus able to fight off disease. When black seed is taken daily normal ailments you had in the past disappear and/or improve.
When you make the power mixture listed below make sure you use raw honey and not just one labeled organic. Raw honey is unprocessed and contains less sugar. Processed and store bought honey is almost all sugar and up to 70%. Look for a dark honey, as this is the best.
The recipe also calls for "Royal Honey." Royal honey is the food of the elite queen bee and comes with a price. It is much more expensive than even raw honey, but it has many benefits for improving your immune system. There are also some disadvantages too. Royal honey may cause you to have allergic reaction if you have skin problems or asthma. You should use it with caution as it may cause anaphylactic shock, bronchial spasms and even death.

Choosing the Right Types of Nuts
Almonds have always been chosen first over any other nut for health value. Dr. Cayce taunted their benefits years ago claiming that almonds could prevent cancer and now we also know that they are beneficial for heart health. When you are making the power mixture, choose the healthiest nuts you can find. You can use almonds alone if you choose. Healthy nuts would include: almonds, walnuts, pistachios, hazelnuts and Brazil nuts.
Power Mixture Recipe
- 3 cups of honey
- 2 Tablespoons of Royal Honey (optional - use all raw honey if Royal Honey is not available)
- 2 teaspoons of Black Cumin oil (heated seeds can be substituted)
- 2 Heaping Tablespoons of ginger powder
- 1/3 cup of chopped nuts
In a medium size bowl add in the honey, black cumin oil and ginger. You can substitute the black cumin seeds that have been heated and ground if you prefer. Mix the honey mixture well. Add in the chopped nuts and place the entire mixture in sealed jars. Take one teaspoon twice a day.
You can take this mixture any time of the day. Keep in mind this mixture is for energy, but you can also make a powerful energy drink using orange juice. By mixing in one teaspoon of black cumin oil to the juice of one orange, you now have a power drink. Drink this mixture 1/2 hour before breakfast.
You can improve your immune system without the honey mixture by taking one teaspoon of the oil and mixing it with one teaspoon of raw honey. Take this before breakfast on an empty stomach and before sleeping. Nigella sativa should be in everyone's kitchen cabinet.
