Frankincense Oil Causes Apoptosis to Bladder Cancer Cells

Comprehensive gene expression analysis confirmed that frankincense oil activates genes that are responsible for cell cycle arrest, cell growth suppression, and apoptosis in bladder cancer cells

If you have been diagnosed with early stage bladder cancer then your best bet will be to undergo a form of surgery referred to as TURBT. To reduce your risk of bladder cancer relapsing or in case of muscle-invasive cancers you may want to consider evidence-based non-conventional therapies such as frankincense oil discussed in the study linked and excerpted below.

I’m not talking about a silver-bullet cure for cancer. As a cancer survivor and cancer coach myself I have been successful maintaining complete remission from my “incurable” cancer by living an evidence-based, non-conventional lifestyle including nutrition, supplementation, detoxification and frankincense essential oils.

Have you been diagnosed with bladder cancer? If so, what stage? What therapies are you considering? Please scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply to you ASAP.

Thank you,

Frankincense oil derived from Boswellia carteri induces tumor cell specific cytotoxicity.

“One of the main components of frankincense oil is boswellic acid, a component known to have anti-neoplastic properties. The goal of this study was to evaluate frankincense oil for its anti-tumor activity and signaling pathways in bladder cancer cells

Within a range of concentration, frankincense oil suppressed cell viability in bladder transitional carcinoma J82 cells but not in UROtsa cells. Comprehensive gene expression analysis confirmed that frankincense oil activates genes that are responsible for cell cycle arrest, cell growth suppression, and apoptosis in J82 cells…

Conclusion: Frankincense oil appears to distinguish cancerous from normal bladder cells and suppress cancer cell viability. Microarray and bioinformatics analysis proposed multiple pathways that can be activated by frankincense oil to induce bladder cancer cell death. Frankincense oil might represent an alternative intravesical agent for bladder cancer treatment.”
