Some years ago, one of my students, a practitioner in Nuremburg, told me that German doctors and naturopaths were getting excellent results-in ten days or less-with an Indian herb, Boswellia serrata , in the treatment of brain tumors. I have been cautiously
passing on this information "for what it is worth," knowing that people with such tumors

suffer serious changes in function due to the pressure on the brain, a problem that is
usually aggravated by edema.
Boswellia serrata is similar to frankincense, one of the gifts brought by the Wise Men to
celebrate the birth of Jesus. The frankincense used in the West is usually
Boswellia
carteri
, a Somalian species whose properties have not been studied nearly as much as
one might think given the Biblical references.
At a recent conference, a man told me that his father has eight tumors. He wanted to
know if there is anything at all that would help his father. He went on to do some internet
research and to hire someone to translate some of the German language material.
Gabriela's report is evidently well substantiated.
Prof. Thomas Simmet has researched Boswellia serrata on astrocytomes, a tumor noted
for its propensity to metastasize. Prof. Simmet's background is in pharmacology, and he
suggests that the boswellic acids reduce inflammation. I was familiar with this research
because boswellia is used extensively in Ayurveda to reduce the symptoms of arthritis.
Prof. Simmet proposes that boswellia inhibits the production of an enzyme that causes the
leukotriene production associated with inflammation. In laboratory tests, Prof. Simmet
observed that the more malignant the tumor, the more leukotrienes it produces. This
seems to perpetuate a cycle of almost unstoppable growth.
Working with a neurosurgeon, Michael Winking, 25 patients were administered a dry
extract of boswellia for one week. The tumors were then surgically removed. About half
the patients had such significant regressions that the tumors had all but disappeared.
They used a dosage of 800 mg. three times a day.
At the university hospitals of Bochum and Giessen, patients with gliome tumors were
administered some what higher dosages of Boswellia serrata , 3600 mg. per day. Within
only a few days, many symptoms associated with brain tumors, such as headaches and
lameness, were greatly lessened. While much of this effect might be more related to the
reduction in edema than to the regression of the tumor, swelling and the resultant
pressures are serious side effects of malignancy that impact the quality of life. The reports
