Graviola is a natural alternative for the curing and prevention of cancer. Learn all about its benefits here!
For a long time, the treatments for several deadly diseases, like cancer, have been derived from “scientific” methods, with dubious effectiveness in the majority of cases. The fear of the general public and the strong pressure exercised by official medicinal authorities, traditional medicine collectives, and pharmaceutical laboratories dedicated to the curing of cancer, have created a situation that when a person finds out that they have this terrifying illness, they don’t dare to look for less aggressive and more natural options.
But if you don’t want to go through harsh treatment, there are natural medicinal treatments, with tested and proven effectiveness, that are making headway in the face of official treatments. These treatments have been proven to be just as effective, and sometimes even more effective, than official treatments for various types of cancer, and, even better, without the harsh side effects of official treatments (immune system deterioration, hair loss, etc.) and other secondary effects of chemotherapy, such as a dangerous amount of weight loss (known as “cachexia”); sad consequences which many times are not only the result of the illness, but also the chemotherapeutic treatment, such as constant, uncontrollable vomiting.
Origin, characteristics, and cultivation of graviola
In reality, nobody knows exactly where graviola originated, although many people consider that since native Mesoamericans cultivated it all throughout the tropical Americas, and even in Africa, its natural zone of origin is predominantly the humid tropics. Graviola is a deciduous tree; that is, during a certain time of year, its leaves fall off and the tree does not produce fruit.
The flowers appear between the months of October and January, and the tree bears fruit (the exquisite soursop fruit) sometime between the months of December and April. The graviola tree is very resistant to winds, droughts, and damage from termites.
The graviola tree is very well-known for its fruit, the soursop, which looks very similar to a large “cherimoya“, or custard apple, covered with spines, with very juicy flesh. It provides a very refreshing and tasty juice, and for this reason it’s often used in the making of ice desserts, jellies, marmalades, and refreshing beverages.
Graviola, the natural chemotherapy
So in this article we’re talking about a plant, with the scientific name Annona muricata, well-known as the soursop, graviola, and by many different names in various places around the world (for example, the “guanábana” in Spanish, or the “stafeli” in Kiswahili). The graviola tree is native throughout all of Mesoamerica.
The main reason that we’re talking about graviola today, however, is it’s natural cancer-fighting power. There are many studies that prove this fact.
In the United States National Institute of Cancer, it was proven in 1976 that graviola has a “chemotherapy” power over 10,000 times greater than the compound Adriamycin one of the most aggressive compounds employed in actual chemotherapy.
But in addition to that, it also has an extraordinary property which is radically different to traditional chemotherapy. That property? While traditional chemotherapy attacks healthy cells at the same rate as cancerous cells, because chemotherapy cannot distinguish between sick cells and regular cells, graviola leaves health cells alone, while it attacks (with great power) cancerous cells, slowing and stopping their growth in as little as 48 hours.
Many other studies have also proven their cancer-fighting benefits. Mainly, in the year 1997 in a study at Purdue University in Indiana, a study proved that graviola has anti-carcinogenic powers when fighting heart cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, bladder cancer, rectal cancer, esophageal cancer, colon cancer, and likewise, its effectiveness as a treatment against leukemia.
Owing to the presence of a naturally chemotherapeutic chemical, called Acetogenin, in its leaves, graviola has cancer-fighting abilities 10,000 times stronger that Adriamycin (a toxic substance of artificial origin). Natural chemotaxis is a process in which the compound attacks cells that contain some chemical substances (ones that are unique to malignant or cancerous cells), while leaving alone healthy cells, while unnatural chemotherapies work by “firing at will”, meaning that they attack cancerous cells and healthy cells, which harms the body overall.
The best way to take graviola is to take a preparation of ground-up graviola leaves, either in capsules or in pills, about 15 to 20 minutes before you eat.
- Preventative use: The adequate amount is to take approximately 500 mg in the half hour before you start eating.
- Curative use: Take the preventative dose 500 mg, multiplied by 2 (1 gram) or up to 4 (2 grams), according to the type and severity of your illness.
Other uses: Graviola, a natural miracle
Although the main use of graviola is as an anti-carcinogenic, graviola is a plant which also has antibacterial, anti-parasite, antispasmodic (helps control muscle spasms), astringent, insecticide, hypotensorial (helps lower arterial tension) and antithelmintic (helps remove intestinal worms) properties. Therefore, we always recommend that you take at least the preventative dose.
We know that graviola is a veritable miracle for keeping you healthy, and it’s one of the most powerful natural medicines that exists.
