HaGaon HaRav Meir Mazuz Shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Kisei Rachamim during a weekly shiur spoke about cancer and R”L how many people are battling the illness today. Rav Mazuz explained that the cure for it is eating and drinking dates, water, carrots and pomegranates.
Rav Mazuz stated that doctors are hiding this from the community so additional patients come to them for chemotherapy.
The rav added “תמר – גימטריא מרפא סרטן”, that the gematria of the word date (tamar) is that of “cure cancer” and “truth be said, dates prevent cancer. There are four things that prevent the illness and they come to me each time, people with this problem and I tell them ‘eat these things which is so simple [to do]; dates, mineral water, carrot juice and pomegranates which have a combined siman of ‘tamgar’ (תמג”ר)
The rav explained one of his talmidim was diagnosed with the illness and a few months later, a doctor checked him and said “What did you do – tell me’ and he responded ‘I ate these things’.
The doctor responded “We do not tell others about this so they come to us for treatment and chemo but this is simpler for Hashem created medicines and all of us [have the ability to] heal”
