Blackcumin was included and indeed commonly used as a medical herb in Europe in the 17th Century. However with a confusion with a toxic farm weed which Drs. were mistakenly administering in its place it was forgotten.
It was the dramatic cure of a famous showhorse of asthma which reopened the rediscovery of this power herb. The horse happened to belong to the daughter of top immunologist Dr Schleicher. He was so impressed with the startling cure of the horse that he adminstered black cumin to a leading politician in Germany, Dr. Carpenter, the former Minister of the Interior. When he was also cured the Dr. put black seed to serious study.
Since then there have been over 600 studies researching the benefits of this healing remedy. The expectations were well exceeded as many of the traditional remedies were confirmed but also modern diseases such as cancer and AIDS were shown to benefit.
