Prunus africana

Traditional healers and tribal medicine practitioners in most African countries have long made wide use of the root and bark of the tree in the treatment of inflammation affecting the prostate gland and the kidney.

Pygeum is an evergreen tree found in the higher elevations of central and southern Africa. The over exploitation of this single natural resource has led to attempts to monitor the trade in this tree species by including it in the Appendix II of CITES – expanded as Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora.

The Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine identified that atraric acid, a Pygeum phytochemical, inhibits the ligand-activated human androgen receptor (AR), which controls the growth of the prostate gland.

The same research group found that another compound in Pygeum, N-butylbenze-sulfonamide (NBBS), also inhibits the androgen receptor, as well as the progesterone receptor (PR). NBBS inhibits the growth of human prostate cancer cells by binding to the androgen receptor and inhibiting its translocation to the cell nucleus.

The anti-cancer potential of Pygeum africana has been tested both in vitro(PC-3 and LNCaP cells) and in vivo (TRAMP mouse model). Results in tissue culture, ethanolic extracts (30%) of Pygeum africana inhibited the growth of PC-3 and LNCaP cells; induced apoptosis and altered cell kinetics; down regulated ERa and PKC-aprotein, and demonstrated good binding ability to both mouse uterine estrogen receptors and LNCaP human androgen receptors. TRAMP mice fed Pygeum africana a significant reduction(P= 0.034) in prostate cancer incidence (35%) compared to casein fed mice (62.05%)

Pygeum contains phytosterols that interfere with the buildup of prostaglandins that accumulate in the prostate of men with BPH. Pygeum’s pentacyclic terpenes have a decongesting, anti-edema effect. The ferulic esters influence testosterone activity in the prostate, also reducing the risk of BPH and its associated urinary disorders.

Ocimum tenuiflorum

The Sacred Herb Ocimum tenuiflorum is deeply rooted in religion and mythology and has been used in the ancient system of Siddha Medicine for thousands of years.

Holy basil is a powerful antioxidant with demonstrated antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. The herb possesses anti-inflammatory attributes and is also useful for sustaining blood sugar levels, for calming digestive disorders and for providing kidney and liver support.

Holy basil is used appropriately for relieving stress and promoting relaxation through its sedative properties.

The chemical constituents of holy basil are Oleanolic acid, ursolic acid, rosmarinic acid, eugenol, carvacrol, linalool, β-caryophyllene (about 8%), β-elemene (c.11.0%), and germacrene D (about 2%). As well as ascorbic acid (vitamin C), carotene (vitamin A), calcium, iron, and selenium, zinc, manganese, and sodium as trace elements.

The holy basil is considered an adaptogenic herb, that helps to balance hormonal levels.

Holy basil augments circulation to the cerebral system.

Holy Basil has therapeutic effects on metabolic disorders, cardiovascular disease, immunity, and neurocognition, inhabits the growth of Candida albicans and , is hypotensive, anti viral, antibacterial, and can significantly decrease blood levels of cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL cholesterol with a significant increase in HDL cholesterol levels.

Crataeva nurvala

The Crataeva Nurvala referred to as Varuna is found in abundance in both in India and Bangladesh and its bark is cut throughout the year and used as a potent herbal medication.

The bark is taken internally for renal calculi, dysuria, helminthiasis, inflammations and abscesses. The bark exhibits carminative, laxative, thermogenic, diuretic, lithontriptic, expectorant and demulcent actions.

In Vedic literature Varuna is as an important herb for use as a blood purifier.
Varuna Bark powder applied on the skin, acts much like the application of mustard oil.It is used in inflammation, and lymphadenopathy.

The tree contains a chemical called lupeol that neutralizes enzymes that cause excessive and painful urination caused by the swelling of the prostate.

Varuna also supports the cardiovascular system by properly maintaining membrane integrity of the endothelial cells of the arteries thereby also supporting blood flow and enhancing erectile function.

Varuna is a lithontriptic that neutralizes glycolate oxidase lessening the production of Calcium oxalate; a chemical compound that forms envelope-shaped crystals ( known in plants as raphides) A major constituent of human kidney stones.

The bark constitutes are ceryl alcohol, lupeol, friedelin, diosgenin and betulinic acid.

Varuna is effective for treating conditions of the urinary organs, infections of the urinary tract, burning micturition, renal ( kidney)and vesical calculi (bladder stones).

Ricinus Communis

Ricinus Communis is a purgative and vermifuge and hence is useful in abdominal diseases. It is used for all types of gastrointestinal problems, and for the stimulation of the lymphatic system for detoxification.

The Oil of Ricinuss is a fatty oil derived from the seeds of the castor plant, Ricinus communis. The seed contains ricin.

Ricinus communis phytochemical constituents shows antibacterial activity, antifungal activity and cytotoxicity.

The plant also possesses hepatoprotective, anti-diabetic, laxative, anti-fertility, anti-inflammatory and free radical scavenging activities.

Phyto analysis results shows the presence of tannins, alkaloids, cardiac glycosides,
terpenoids, flavonoids and steroids.

Ricinus Communis with Thermotherapy : For gastrointestinal disorders that interrupts sexual functioning and as a protocol for reducing cysts, tumors non-malignant and malignant adeno carcinomas:


Ozonated Castor and Olive Oils are made by infusing it with Bio-Oxidative Cold Plasma Ozone Gas, produced from Medical Grade Oxygen.

Applied to the skin , its uses at IHM are for helping to reduce lactic acid in the skin. It can be topically applied to further stimulate the Inguinal Nodes of the Prostate after Bio-oxidative therapy. It can accompany a Prostate Treatment for reducing adhesion in the Fistulae. It can assist a Peristalsis and for reducing Fissures. Ricinus Communis is used with Thermotherapy. Photodynamic Light Therapy with Ozonated Castor Oil is for reducing minimally to moderately thick actinic keratosis. Actinic keratoses squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), is the second most common form of skin cancer.

Regiment with Viscum album

Viscum Album triggers molecular changes that result in the inhibition of cell growth and the induction of apoptotic cell death of cancer cells.

An abnormal formation of parasitic, non-inflammatory cells or tissue arising from the cells of the host, yet progressive and independent in their growth. Tumors can be malignant or non-malignant, they can be fast-growing or slow-growing, and they can be in many parts of the body, such as the lymphatic glands or nodes, the urinary and genital areas, or the abdominal structure.


Regimented treatment is used in its cellular phases as well as for pre and post therapy in Neoplasia:

Treatment with Viscum album (VA) includes establishing proper nutrient balance; Modulating Phosphate levels; Immune Modulation; Enzyme support and a Stress reducing Breathing modalitie that supports proper breathing for full oxygen utilization.

Treatment with VA requires 1-7 visits within a 2 week period to establish proper dosage and to train for self subcutaneous injections of VA. The ampoules are refilled as needed.

The progression of healing differs from one individual to another and is largely dependent upon the individuals commitment to following the regiment as directed and a rightful mental attitude.

Bio-oxidative treatment is included, a topical oxidative therapy, with the use of electrolyte salts for maintaining normal electrolyte levels in the body. It assist Bio-oxidation by helping the lymphatic system to transport waste out of the body.
Viscum album is a herb derived from fermented European mistletoe.

Viscum album contains a variety of biologically active compounds such as viscotoxins and other low molecular proteins, VisalbCBA (Viscum album chitin-binding agglutinin), oligo- and polysaccharids, flavonoids , vesicles, triterpene acids, and others.


Whole plant VA compounds are cytotoxic to which the MLs in particular have strong apoptosis-inducing effects. MLs display cytotoxic effects on multidrug-resistant cancer cells.

European Mistletoe (Viscum album) has two special potencies; it powerfully lowers blood pressure. European Mistletoe must be taken in small doses, like 5 to 10 drops of the standard tincture preparation; take too much European Mistletoe, and your blood pressure will drop too low, even to the point of death. THIS IS USED UNDER MEDICAL SUPERVISION ONLY.
