Cancer Cure : Soursop

Updated on October 31, 2016

Soursop or graviola

Cancer cure : soursop

I think most of you would have come across the viral email about "cancer cure : soursop". It was about soursop, the cancer killer and how this vital information was suppressed from public knowledge. It was from this particular email that took my curiosity to find out more about this fruit, the soursop. For those who still have not read the email, you can click on the link at the end of this article. Soursop has certain properties that kill cancer cells 10,000 times more efficient than chemotherapy; and they only kill cancer cells leaving the healthy cells unharmed. This means the patient does not suffer from the side effects that chemotherapy has. One of its cancer cure properties is annonacin. Soursop is high in carbohydrates, especially fructose. It also has large amount of vitamins C, B1, and B2.

Soursop is called by various names in different languages. Graviola in Portuguese, durian belanda in Malay, babana in Indonesian, guanabana in Spanish, gayubano in Philippines, and pawpaw (not to confuse with papaya) in Brazilian. Soursop grows in tropical countries and are common in Southeast Asia, Papua New Guinea, Hawaii, Seychelles, Sri Lanka, the Caribbean, Central America and the sub-Saharan African countries.

Cancer cure : soursop. Other health benefits of the fruit and the plant

Making tea from the leaves and bark. You can either use fresh leaves or dried ones. As the leaves are very potent, you only need one or two leaves for one person. You only need to steep the leaves in boiling water, just like making ordinary tea. The strength of the tea depends on the number of leaves and the length of time the leaves are left in the water. Other benefits are alleviating migraine headache, diarrhea, cough, back pain, stress, high blood pressure, and nerve ailment. If you are suffering from insomnia, try drinking this tea before going to sleep. As for children who like to bed wet, this tea will help prevent it. All said, the sour sop fruit, seeds, bark, roots and leaves have been found to even cure cancer.

To soothe inflammation and swelling, place crushed soursop leaves on the affected area. There are many other ailments that soursop is supposed to be effective, but I think a general awareness of the power of soursop is good enough for us to eat more of the fruit as well as drink the tea.

Culinary uses of soursop

Soursop can be made into ice cream, as a sorbet, and as ingredient for cakes and pies.

The young unripe soursop fruit can also be used as a vegetable dish. And of course, pure soursop fruit juice!

Are all these true?

In the final analysis, are we going to believe all that have been written? Personally, I strongly believe that each fruit has its unique health and medicinal properties. Also in each of us, we have unique constituents making our bodies tick. Certain fruits may prove to be more effective for certain people, while for others not. Be that as it may, soursop is one fruit that you may not want to miss out.

I will be planting a soursop plant in due course, for sure.

Soursop plant in my garden

An update : I planted my Soursop plant

This is an update. I have planted a soursop plant in my garden. It's been about 6 months already; and now it has grown to nearly 150 cm (5 feet). At the rate that it is growing, I think I may have to wait for at least another 2 years to see the first flowers. Take a look at the photo on the right.

A word of caution

Research has suggested that there may be a connection between consumption of soursop and atypical forms of Parkinson's disease because of the high content of annonacin present in soursop. What an irony, as annonacin is supposed to cure cancer! Well, looks like you can't win them all. My own decision is that I would do things in moderation.

 

Another cancer-cure drug : DCA

DCA or Dichloroacetic acid has already been used on humans to treat mitochondrial/metabolic malfunctions and, considering that cancer is a mitochondrial malfunction, the doctor should be able to prescribe DCA to you as on "off-label" drug. This drug doesn't require a patent, so anyone can employ it widely and cheaply compared to the costly cancer drugs produced by major pharmaceutical companies. This is THE main reason that the mainstream media did not report this important life-saving drug.

      Hi, even I agree that Soursop has various Medical and Health benefits. As more people are becoming aware of the health benefits of Soursop, the fruit sellers are taking advantage of them by selling the fruit at enormously high prices! But I bought Soursop Juice from SVA India(Mumbai) at a very economical cost, they are very friendly and reachable. You can also contact them on + (91)-(22)-22886789/98 if you are interested in buying the fruit/Juice/Tea/Leaves.

      I was able to find "Guanabana Nectar" in the grocery store. It was in the Mexican aisle of the grocery store. It was in a can like soda. Taste very, very good! Guanabana is Graviola in Spanish/Mexican. I am going to try some of your sites to check out soursop leaves. If your local grocery store doesn't have this juice, ask them to order it. It is made by a company called "JUMEX." Thank you for posting all this cancer information for alternative help. Bless you!

      Hi selim818 ,

      The two fruits are world apart. Durian has "killer"thorns. Soursop only has soft tiny protrusions.

      Durian has a variety of tastes and textures. Soursop is uniform in taste and texture.

      The alleged toxic properties of soursop were from tests done using extracts from the roots and not from the fruit. So be wary of the claims of toxicity for the fruit. That has not been demonstrated at all.

      The following information is from Purdue University USA:

      "Toxicity

      The presence of the alkaloids anonaine and anoniine has been reported in this species. The alkaloids muricine, C19H21O4N (possibly des-N-methylisocorydine or des-N methylcorydine) and muricinine, C18H19O4 (possibly des-N-methylcorytuberine), are found in the bark. Muricinine is believed to be identical to reticuline. An unnamed alkaloid occurs in the leaves and seeds. The bark is high in hydrocyanic acid. Only small amounts are found in the leaves and roots and a trace in the fruit. The seeds contain 45% of a yellow non-drying oil which is an irritant poison, causing severe eye inflarnmation."

      Hi Grampain, you metioned in a reply to "Rita" from Ireland some time ago that you too were trying this plant, can I just ask are you in Ireland too, if so have you succeeded in growing this plant or in importing the leaves etc., I just ask as my father in law has prostate cancer, HRT meds don't seem to be working and we are very interested in trying the Soursop as an altenative, many thanks, Siobhain.

      thank for this information about this fruit sour sop, which many people are yet to inform about, because many people are cancer patents, i saw this post about it effectiveness on cancer, but didn't go for it to have a test on it effectiveness, later i remember, and i gave to my younger sister who have been through this devilish sickness call cancer, at the time i gave it to her, it was about two months she went to toilet, but after she eat of this fruit, she started going to toilet, that shows that this fruit works, although my sisters case as at now, she is very emaciated compare to her weight before this sickness starts some few years ago, right now, i have started to give her again of this fruit, she go to toilet every time she eat this fruit, hers is a breast cancer that has left a soul, and i notice one thing that, before i gave the fruit, the wound on her breast smell, but after given her this fruit it stop smelling, i', still searching more of it, thanks, please do inbox me whenever you sending any message to me, and also if there is other things to use let me know. thanks, from nigeria

      @bchgirl, in addition to this page, may I recommend reading Kelley Eidem's page at this link: https://hubpages.com/health/How-I-Cured-Stage-4-Ca...

      We have personally seen success with my fiance's cancer and one other friend who has stage 4 brain cancer. Even the doctors at her cancer hospital are amazed at their progress. We strongly urge you to consider reading this Hub page and deciding for yourself.

      Best wishes to you.

      hi everyone! so many stories and facts about soursop...good thing im in the philippines where guyabano/soursop is available anywhere. we also have 1 in our backyard. but even if we have i dont take it as remedy for my HYPERTHYROIDISM. i was diagnosed to have this thyroid problem 5 years ago. i stopped taking the medicines (PTU) when i got pregnant and breastfed my baby...but after 1year and 8 mos of breastfeeding my doctor told me to go back to anti-thyroid medicine. surprisingly i got allergic reaction from those medicines, i tried taking TAPDIN, NEOMARDIN and last was PTU again. my doctor told me that i need to undergo RADIOACTIVE IODINE but i refused to. i tried alternative medicine and luckily i found the MY JINGA JUICE.. made from guyabano and wheatgrass...two superfoods! i started drinking the juice 2 weeks ago and gladly my laboratory tests which are FT4, TSH, FT3, CBC were all in good condition. this is the RESULT: FT4 (normal range 0.8 to 2.0) 1.8 (last month is 2.0 but my doc told me that my thyroid will be more active, unexpectedly it was not and even hit the normal range) 3 hours ago i visited my doctor again..(the lab test was done dec 8, 2012, sat) she was happy with the result but i didn't tell her i wasn't drinking the so bitter PTU! now i will continue drinking my JINGA JUICE and will still continue to see my doctor..:)

      more testimonies from MY JINGA JUICE team

      I have a very rare and uniques cancer where there is no data, no recommended, everything is a guesstimate and is usually found in autopsy results. I am going on my 25th year with it. When there si a tumore, I have it removed along with part of an organ. Cisplatin chemo, high dosage radiation, Megace and now Femera have been my treatments all these years and nothing seems to really address the issue. I have ordered Han's Sour Sop juice and will start it adter discussing it with my new oncologist here in central Florida. The drug I am on currently shows that my scans from May have not changed at all in November. One of the main characterisitics of this cancer is that the cells reproduce so slowly, it is almost undetectable. I would like to think that the juice will have a positive impact on me since I am only 1 of 2 patients with this type of cancer in the US - there are 14 cases in the UK. They do not implement clinical trials for groups less than 300, so I will not be a candidate for that. The other thing that bothers me is the fact that people enjoy exploiting the sick and I have found this to be abundantly true to the core. After giving an article or 2 to show my dr, I hope he will agree to give it a whirl. Let's hope my results will have a positive impact in my health...thank you!

      Hi MUHAMMED ATIQULLAH,

      I don't why you mention Malaysia. I am a Malaysian. The Malay name for this fruit is durian belanda. "Belanda" is actually "Holland".

      Durian itself is a different fruit. Durian is a thorny fruit, which you can read in my article :
