The Strong Medicinal Properties Of Graviola Leaf

The Strong Medicinal Properties Of Graviola Leaf

I just read about how Soursop also names Guanabana, fruit can assist in cancer recovery and now I find the leaves also have a cancer-killing ability.

The reason Graviola Leaf should use in a cancer protocol is cheap, easily obtained, and has multiple therapeutic abilities.

The leaves are abundant and can buy cheaply on the internet. The tea can use for an enema, which may especially useful again colon cancer. If the leaves were heated in water to become steam, it is useful for lung cancer due to its Analgesic, Astringent, Antiparasitic, properties in dealing with fluid on the lungs and reducing the chance of possible infection.

Graviola (Annona muricata) also called soursop or guanabana a powerful tree that grows deep within the Amazon rain forest in South America and throughout the Caribbean. The plant has used for centuries by medicine men in South America to treat a number of ailments, including hypertension, influenza, rashes, neuralgia, arthritis, rheumatism, high blood pressure, diarrhea, nausea, dyspepsia, ulcers, ringworm, scurvy, malaria, dysentery, palpitations, nervousness, insomnia, fever, boils, and muscle spasms. According to recent research, it protects the immune system, boosts energy, and has strong anti-cancerous properties. Producers claim that strongly kills colon cancer cells than common chemotherapeutic drugs and that it hunts down and destroys prostate, lung, breast, colon, and pancreatic cancers while leaving healthy cells alone.

All the parts of the Graviola tree used in natural medicine in the tropics including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit, and fruit-seeds.

Different properties and uses attributed to the different parts of the tree. Generally, the fruit and fruit juice is for worms and parasites, to cool fevers, to increase mother’s milk after childbirth (lactagogue), and as an astringent for diarrhea and dysentery. The crushed seeds use as a vermifuge and anthelmintic against internal and external parasites and worms. The bark, leaves, and roots considered sedative, antispasmodic, hypotensive, and nervine, and use as a tea for various disorders for purposes. 

As a traditional remedy, Graviola can use as a preventative herb, for maintenance or as a cure for many complaints. In the West Indies and Latin America, Graviola leaves are used to make a common bush tea which the children and adults take it daily as a nerve tonic.

The leaves use as strew around beds and pillowcases for restful sleep. The crushed leaves used to revive one from a fainting spell instead of smelling salts. In Jamaica, the leaves also use for kidney and gall bladder problems and to eliminate inorganic calcium deposits in the joints. In the Bahamas, it makes a remedy for high blood pressure by adding 15 leaves to a pint of boiling water. Take one cupful in the morning and another at night. The crush leaves used as a poultice for wounds and sores. The dried fruit commonly used as a tea for dysentery and jaundice. In Trinidad, the leaves used as a tea for flu, insomnia and to relieve burning urine. In Costa Rica, they crushed the leaves and rubbed them on their legs to repel chiggers and other body parasites.

Among others, Graviola considered an important ally in the combat of more than twelve types of cancer, like lung, breast, prostate. In vitro studies, conducted in more than twenty laboratories, show that Graviola can provide a ten thousand times better improvement than treatment with chemotherapy. Scientists are proving its real efficiency in combating cancer. In the majority of cases, natural plant treatments give our life-force the necessary vitality for recovery, and in addition, improves the perspective life of the sick person. Using extracts of this powerful tree, a full and natural therapy can be possible without the severe side-effects from the chemotherapy, e.g., nausea and loss of hair.

Other promising and ongoing research at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells “among six human-cell lines” and were especially effective against prostate and pancreatic cancer cells.

In a separate study, Purdue researchers showed that extracts from the Graviola leaves are extremely effective in isolating and killing lung cancer cells. The most recent study, conducted at the Catholic University of South Korea, revealed that two chemicals extracted from Graviola seeds showed “selective cytotoxicity comparable with Adriamycin” for breast and colon cancer cells. The chemicals targeted and killed malignant breast and colon cells in a test tube–comparable to the commonly used chemotherapy drug Adriamycin. Another study, published in the Journal of Natural Products, showed that Graviola is not only comparable to Adriamycin–but dramatically outperforms it in laboratory tests. Results showed that one chemical found in Graviola selectively killed colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the potency of Adriamycin.” Perhaps the most significant result of the study cited above from the Catholic University of South Korea, and of each of the others found healthy, that Graviola has shown to selectively target the enemy and leaving all healthy, normal cells untouched. By comparison, chemotherapy indiscriminately seeks and destroys all actively reproducing cells–even normal hair and stomach cells. This is what causes such often-devastating side effects as hair loss and severe nausea. In this respect, Graviola looks to be a promising alternative or supplement to mainstream treatments.

Studies in the years 1.998 to 2.000 for McLaughlin and Chih HW, Chui HF have shown that acetogenins are inhibitors of complex I of oxidative phosphorylation chain and thus block the formation of ATP energy needed to put the cancer cell running your pump mediated by P-glycoprotein, which allows you to stay active.

The acetogenins also inhibit the ubiquinone-ubiquinone oxidase, NADH-dependent enzyme that is peculiar to the plasma membrane of the cancer cell. McLaughlin made his investigations and Bullatacinone Bullatacin acetogenins.

Currently, the antitumor property of the soursop (Graviola) patented by at least nine foreign companies.

The Graviola is a plant that can use not only for the fruit that contains abundant nutrients and vitamins, but also the medicinal properties of its different parts, especially leaves, for its anti-cancer properties.
