Nigella Sativa

Updated: Jun 28, 2020

Did you just suffer an immediate or delayed reaction to something you ate or touched?

The number one benefit I have experienced myself for food sensitivity relief came from a plant based oil. Relief within 10 to 30 minutes!

You are not alone, a lot people suffer from digestive issues due to lack of stomach acid, intestinal permeability (leaky gut), infections, parasites, food sensitivities. God the creator has given as all the food that we need to be used as medicine and to nourish our body. Just like Hippocrates said “Let your food be thy medicine and your medicine thy food.”

Let me introduce you to this wonderful food. It is Nigella Sativa! I do not use it as an everyday supplement, but whenever I need support for my immune system. When one experiences food sensitivities or allergies, is usually related to the causes I mentioned above. To correct digestive issues, you will need to implement a complete protocol with healthier nutrient dense diet, food sensitivity testing, plus other gut interventions like adding HCL with pepsin to be able to digest food, but Nigella Sativa can definitely help you quail the fire of a skin reaction within a very short time. If you ever had a skin reaction due to something you eat or touched, you know it is sudden, hot as fire, itchy and leaves you frighten.

Nigella Sativa

It appeared in the bible in the old testament first, Isiah 28:25,27 NKJV. In the bible it has been quoted as curing everything, but death itself!

Nigella Sativa is also known as Black cumin and Kalonji. Annual flowering plant in the family Ranunculaceae (Buttercup or Crowfoot family, little frog).


Contains linoleic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid, trans-Anethole, Thymoquinone 36-38%

(phytochemical), Carvacol (monoterpenoid phenol) and other components.

You may recognize Carvacol and Thymoquinone these compounds have healing capabilities in the areas of viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic infections.

Health Benefits

The number one benefit I have experienced myself five years ago was for allergy or food sensitivity reactions. The therapeutic dose works within 10 to 30 minutes. Thank God, right! The way Nigella Sativa works is that it modulates the pathways between Th-1 & Th2. In other words, it cools the skin reaction quickly by balancing the immune system.

Other benefits are immune modulators like autoimmune disorders*, reduce high blood pressure,  helps with sleep,hair loss, neurological disorders like anxiety, Epilepsy, Parkinson’s, viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic infections like Malaria, blood mover helping improve oxygen & cell nutrition uptake especially in cases of malnourished red blood cell. It helps with skin conditions like Eczema, Psoriasis, inflammation, digestive issues, allergic asthma. Pancreatitis.

Dosage: Is based on weight, health conditions. The oil works the fastest and is best, but you can grind the seeds and add to foods. I add seed to my homemade breads inside and as a topping about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon for extra nutrition. The oil I have use, but only as needed.

Fun fact: The skin is the largest organ in the body and regenerates every 21 days. Remember, always nourish your skin from the inside with proper diet and plenty of hydration.

*Nigella Sativa oil has shown the ability to reduce antibodies in autoimmune disorders like Hashimoto.

The dosage I took years ago was 1 teaspoon of Nigella Sativa oil, organic, just before my meals 3 times per day, but only for 2 days. Use only as needed.
