Sabah Snake Grass : Herbal Cancer Treatment

I like to share information that makes life more joyful and meaningful. My main interests are health and general wellness in body and mind.

Sabah Snake Plant (Sabah Snake Grass) in my garden


Sabah snake grass : Herbal cancer treatment

This article is more for local readers in Malaysia. However the information is useful wherever you are located. It is about a herb called Sabah snake grass, effective for curing cancer. So this article is aptly titled “herbal cancer treatment”.

I got this from a viral email and I traced the source as well as other sites that featured this similar subject on this herb locally called "Sabah snake grass". It is about this local herb that has cured many cancer patients. As I cautioned in my other articles on “alternative cancer cure”, this particular herbal treatment is no exception. It is not likely that one method or a single herb can cure everyone of cancer. Each individual is different and the condition of the disease is also different. In this article, I merely like to share the information that some cancer patients have been successful in curing their sicknesses by using this herb. Who knows, someone reading this article may also benefit from this piece of information.

The name of this herb is locally called in Malaysia as the "Sabah Snake Grass". Sabah is a state in Malaysia. Apparently the “scientific" name is Clinacanthus, or Clinathanus. But I don’t think it is, as I can’t find such terms in the internet. The Chinese name is Yu Xun Cao. There are also "local names" like Belalai Gajah and Gendis. But never mind; you can take a look at the photos on the right.

Herbal cancer treatment : SSG cures cancer

This is the piece of information that might save lives. Who knows. So no harm sharing here. I shall give the links to the relevant sites at the end of this article.

It was reported in another site that Sabah Snake Grass has cured so many types of cancer:

  • Lung cancer
  • Uterus cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Leukemia
  • Dialysis patients

Others with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high uric acid and diabetes have also benefitted from Sabah Snake Grass.

Mr Liu holding the Sabah Snake Grass


Herbal cancer treatment : As reported in a local newspaper

A local newspaper reported that a 56-year old Mr Liu Lian Hui was confirmed having stage 4 lymphatic cancer in 2008, and was given only 3 months to live. Today (19 April 2011) he is still alive! He cured himself by drinking Sabah Snake Grass juice. He blended the Sabah Snake Grass leaves with green apples and drank the juice every morning after breakfast. Within 3 days 6 tumors disappeared, and after 13 days, he was cleared by the oncologist that he was 96% cured!

Herbal cancer treatment : The recipe

For cancer treatment:

Stage 1 cancer : 30 leaves daily

Stage 2 cancer : 50 leaves daily

Stage 3 cancer : 100 leaves daily

Scroll to Continue

Stage 4 cancer : 150-200 leaves daily

Reduce dosage when condition improves.

Direction for juicing SSG

  • Pour half cup of clean water in a blender
  • Add 1 or 2 ice cubes to prevent heating during blending
  • Add 1 quarter lemon or half a lime (provide Vitamin C and prevent oxidization )
  • Wash the required fresh SSG leaves and put into the blender
  • Peel a green apple and remove the core/seeds, cut into small pieces and put into blender
  • Blend and drink immediately or within 5 minutes

This is an update by cancer survivor CT Chang on intake of SSG leaves :

"The recommended dosage for SSG should not be more than 30 leaves, added with a slice of apple before blending. After blending, it is advisable to warm the SSG blend before drinking. "

For more information please read his posting HERE:

This is from one of the readers "Thiva" . You can contact this person at the comments section at the end of this article:

"It is best to grow about 50 plants for continuous supply of 150 leaves per day,plucking 3 leaves from each plant a day.That way the plant becomes less stressed.It prefers semi shade and grows profusely after 3 to 4 months of planting.Cancer patients can't wait for such a long period.So buy mature plants of a year old.Chemotherapy works for some people only and so is it with snake grass."

Leaves of Sabah Snake Grass and Indian Snake Grass


SSG in my garden.


Two varieties of this plant

Apparently there are two varieties of this plant. The effective one is the Sabah Snake Grass (SSG). The other variety is the Indian Snake Grass (ISG). The leaves of SSG taste sweet, whereas those of ISG taste very bitter. From my personal tasting, it is neither sweet nor bitter, but bland. The leaves of SSG are longer than those of ISG. I have not seen ISG, so I really don't know.

You can take a look at the photo on the right.

Herbal cancer treatment : Where to get SSG

This is going to be a big problem if you are not in my area. Apparently those living around my area can obtain the Sabah Snake Grass at the Penang Snake Temple, Ayer Itam Market, and Desa Rambai Market in BM. Usually I will have a few small plants available to give for free.

For those in KL, I was told Sg. Buluh nursery is selling the Sabah Snake Grass.

I hope in due course, readers may provide more information on this by putting their comments in the "comment" section at the end of this article. Some readers here may also have ample supply of this plant and may be generous enough to share with others within their areas. Please make known in the “comments” section for the benefits of all humankind.

For those interested to obtain the plant for free within your area, please go through the comments section at the end of this article and I am sure in time to come, there will be others near you who are happy to share for free. There are also some commercial suppliers who commented.

For testimonies from readers, please also read through the "comments" section at the end of this article.

(Initially, for ease of readers' reference, I tried to collate all the "suppliers" inside this article as they gradually appeared in the comments section. However, Hubpages Admin felt that this was "over promoting" my site. I had no choice but to delete them. So you need to patiently go through the comments in the "comments" section at the end of this article to find out all the available suppliers.)

Mulberry and SSG leaves


My daily "breakfast munchie"

It is now my daily routine to pluck a few SSG leaves and chew them after my breakfast. Whenever I am able to pluck the mulberries from my mulberry plant, I will wrap the mulberries with the SSG leaves and munch them. This is a healthy and delicious combination.

Personal testimony on You Tube

Below is a short You Tube presentation of a kidney patient being cured by using a plant which I believe looks like the SSG. It was done on 30 April 2011. Incidentally, this video was shot in Pulau Betong, a remote village on the south-western part of my hometown, Penang Island, Malaysia. The dialogue is in typical Penang Hokkien, my local dialect.

This man is Wong Teck Gee who had suffered from high blood pressure and kidney problem. He initially went to a private hospital (Lam Wah Ee Hospital) but after two years had to change to the government General Hospital which was very much cheaper. He was only given prescription for high blood pressure as he was told there was no drug that can cure his kidney problem. That went on for about another 6 years, and the kidney problem became more acute.

He was inroduced to the plant by someone, which planted but initially did not use it, until when he was acutely sick and out of desperation, he tried the prescription. The initial reaction after consuming the concoction, was severe stomach pain and diarrhea. From that day onwards, he gradually became healthy, and gained weight as well.

I note that there was no mention of cancer or the name of the plant. What I can deduce is that this man was very sick with kidney problem and was cured by this plant which looks like SSG. So this video is solely just a piece of visual presentation that someone has positive response after consuming the solution from the steamed leaves of the plant that resembles SSG.

By the way, the method used by this man was a bit different. He steamed the leaves with 1 cup of water and 7 red dates for 4 hours; then drank it. I notice that the pot showed more than 7 dates. I assume that he now steams a larger portion, as he said he put in about 100 leaves each time.

Take a look at the You Tube presentation below.

Jkong on October 12, 2015:

Hi friends. Would like to share again the effects off SSG. Had my colon assessed again and result was good, and CEA (cancer marker) showed result of 1.6 - the normal is 2.2 and below, I understand. I am in the second year after the operation.

PgLang on August 26, 2015:

Hi..I'm from Penang and interested to plant the Sabah Snake Grass. Anyone can give me this plant for free? Thanks.

Jkong on July 13, 2015:

Dear GG and Readers,

Like to share something interesting about effect of using SNG. My PSA reading, marker for prostate cancer dropped slightly from 3.57 to 3.52 after taking SNG moderately, for about 3 months. Moderately, in my case, means 2x per week (thirty leaves). Although I don't have cancer of the prostate, I take it as a precaution-better than cure? Next, as I wrote earlier, I am still waiting for my cancer marker result (CEA) for colon cancer. I will share it (good or bad) when I get it in October.

lee on July 12, 2015:

I got 4 pots of SSG in muar...those who want to plant it, just bring ur pot wt soil to me. I,ll give to u for free....

Jkong on May 18, 2015:

Dear GG,

Thanks for the quick reply. Like you, I am interested in sharing experiences more than anything else, especially when it comes to the disease of cancer where most of my family have. Appreciate your humility. Yes, I have recovered from my operation since about a year and a half ago, and now waiting for more tests and another scope to be done this year. Shall update all when I get the 'cancer marker' result. Meanwhile, I will take the leaves moderately until my next appointment in June. Cheers.

Justin Choo (author) from Malaysia on May 15, 2015:

Hi Jkong,

Thanks for visiting, and I take it that you have recovered. Honestly I can't give you any advice as I am not qualified. I merely share info which I think is beneficial and helpful. I think there is no harm to take the drink in moderation. Best to consult a qualified herbalist.

Jkong on May 15, 2015:

Hi Good Guy,

Thanks for sharing so much goodness to others. I have successfully grown the SSG and have started taking it a few weeks ago, about twice a week. I had a colon cancer (first stage) operation in 2013 and I am drinking it is as a preventive measure. But I don't know when I should stop or just continue as tea. Your advice is much appreciated.

Veen on February 14, 2015:

Hi Sunny,

Try the above exercise, reputed to heal all kinds of sickness. Since she is paralyzed , use visualization initially.

Justin Choo (author) from Malaysia on June 09, 2014:

Dear Sunny Lee,

I am sorry I don't know the answer. I am surprised that doctors can "deny" treating patients.

Sunny Lee on June 09, 2014:

Since this medicine worked for cancer, do you think it'll also work for a disease called CMT? My sister is diagnosed with CMT and is getting no treatment from doctors. They used to live in Utah for 1 year until she was injured at work and that's when the disease came out. The doctors in Utah denied her. Her work place said that it wasn't their fault. So they came back to California. She can't work. Paralyzed and hurting really bad. Still no cure yet. So please help me. Painkillers not doing any thing either.

Michael lee on April 12, 2014:

The article above about side effects of SSG is as good as rubbish ! One comment mentioning about taking 5 sachets of SSG teabag daily for 3 days and experienced severe joint pains, who asked him to take SO MUCH teabag in a day in the first place ??? One sachets per day is the recommended qty for the body since it has cooling effect, unless he is a stage 4 cancer patient and time is running out for him, in which case 2-3 sachets per day maybe ok, even then the patient may need to drink some ginger water to counter the cooling effect.
