Natural Remedies to Treat Asbestos Related Diseases

sign caution asbestos

Asbestos and its use is now banned in more than 50 countries across the world. On top of that, employers and governments are held accountable by a lot of suffering workers and asbestos attorneys who are pursuing asbestos compensation claims.

Two of the most common asbestos-diseases are mesothelioma and asbestosis. The latter currently has no treatment, while mesothelioma, which is a type of cancer, comes with generic treatment options – chemo and radio therapy, medication, and surgeries.

However, there are some natural remedies that are believed to treat asbestos-related diseases. Most, if not all of them have been tried and tested by Paul Kraus, an individual who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma since 1997 and has opted for a natural approach in terms of treating his condition.

Cats Claw

A plant found in a region of South America, the Cats Claw, is a vine-type plant that has small thorns at the root of the plant. They resemble a cat’s claw, hence the name.

The people native to South America use this plant to help them with the treatment of arthritis, as well as cancer, including epidemic diseases and gastritis.

Back in 2001, a study made on the plant indicated that it is an anti-proliferative and anti-mutagenic plant.

Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy is an alternative treatment for asbestos-related diseases that includes the increase of the amount of oxygen in the patient’s body. It is believed that this type of therapy is successful in treating such cases mainly because there is scientific proof that cancer cells do not prosper in environments that are rich in oxygen.

However, one should not abuse this type of therapy, because too much can be detrimental to health and well-being.


Astragalus is a plant native to China. All studies that have been made on this plant had promising results and were done by the Chinese only.

It is believed that the root of the plant has to be four to seven years old for it to inhibit the growth of tumors while also counteracting the side-effects of chemotherapy. A 2003 study in which Astragalus was used showed that patients suffering from mesothelioma enjoyed a far better quality of life after being treated with this plant.

A Healthy Diet

Obviously, almost every disease is bound to run away from your body if you have a healthy diet. Other than the medicine you take, the therapy you do, and natural remedies that you treat yourself with, you must also embrace a new and healthy diet.

Doing so ensures that your body gets all the nutrients it needs without being exposed to excess salt and fats. In the end, a healthy diet makes for more energy which you need to fight and overcome your condition.

The Bottom Line

Even though natural remedies are usually frowned upon, you can’t deny scientific results. The natural remedies we have mentioned above may not have been tested on a very large scale, but the results of those tests should be taken into consideration when thinking of new medicine or types of treatment.

After all, adding a plant to your diet/daily use is something all people should do, especially if they want to live a healthier life.
