Guyabano or Soursop – Natural Remedies for Cancer

Natural Remedies for Cancer – Soursop

While we were eating dinner, my husband mentioned that his officemate started to drink Soursop leaves or Guyabano leaves for almost 3 months now. And the lump on his back started to disappear. This made me dig further for more information about this plant. The Soursop tree or the Guyabano tree originated from Central America and some parts of Southern America. But it is abundantly cultivated and grown in Southeast Asia, particularly in the Philippines and Indonesia where it is available all year round. In the Philippines it is known as Guyabano and in Indonesia it is known as Sirsak. The fruit is abundantly sold in the market and in groceries and supermarkets. The Soursop is a tree that grows up to 12-24 cm in height. The leaves are alternate, oval in shape, pointed at both ends, smooth and shining, 7 to 20 centimeters long and with petioles about 5 millimeters long and the fruit is green in color and has spines. When ripe it is soft to the touch. The Soursop plant can be propagated by grafting, cutting and budding. The fruit, seeds , leaves and bark has medicinal uses. The fruit when taken as a drink or even eaten raw is a good source of Vitamin C and thus a good boaster for the immune system. It is also good in treating liver ailments. The seeds when pulverize can be used to treat head lice and even bed bugs. The leaves when mashed can be used to treat skin eruptions and a good anti-inflammatory agent for the skin. The leaves and the bark when boiled in water for 8-10 minutes and then strained. And the water is used as a drink can treat cancer patients. Studies have been made that it effectively targets and kills malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer.. With all these natural remedies, we can say that the Soursop or Guyabano is miraculous. So why don’t you drink one today. Recently, i found a good source of Dried Sirsak leaves in capsule form. Recent studies from Purdue University shows that the leaves, stems and bark contains a phytochemical called Annonaceous Acetogenins which has antitumorous and anticancerous properties. People have started using it as an alternative to chemotherapy. If you are interested, please send me your email.
