I have come across a bit of information that has given me a lot of hope for the future. Have you ever heard of the super fruit Soursop? Well I hadn’t either until I started doing some independent research on it a few years ago. My grandfather was diagnosed with prostate cancer, I was very upset when he told me and I could do nothing but cry and worry about loosing him. I also became worried for myself because I smoked cigarettes for years, cancer has always frightened me and I thought if I ever was diagnosed with it then I would be as good as dead.
So what are your options, well there is an option that not many people know about because it isn’t practised in North America. You see in North America once you know you have cancer the only possible option to treat it is chemotherapy. Unfortunately when you choose this option you become very ill not from just the cancer but from the chemotherapy itself. In most cases patients die from the chemotherapy treatment not cancer. Take this explanation for example… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sJFyEDGpG4
What the problem is, is that western society has invested a lot of money into chemotherapy, and it expects returns. The costs for chemotherapy can vary as well, with some estimates as high as $30,000 over an eight-week period. The average cost for an initial treatment is approximately $7,000. Expenses differ depending on the drugs, the stage of the cancer and other factors specific to each patient.
What if there was another option?
What if you could battle cancer with a fruit?
Well Soursop is just that miracle fruit that is actually 10,000 times stronger in killing cancer cells then chemotherapy with no adverse side effects. That being said there is an issue with the seeds causing early stages of parkisons disease, however if you remove the seeds from the fruit before you ingest you shouldn’t have any issues. Soursop is usually found in South America and often the basis for beverages, ice creams and other popular sweet foods. It’s known to have a few other names, such as graviola, custard apple, paw paw, guyabano and guanabana in Spanish-speaking countries. Additionally, it has superfruit-healing properties as a high-antioxidant food due to its vitamin C, B vitamins, calcium, phosphorous and even some iron that it contains. These vitamins and minerals are why soursop benefits include potentially helping reduce eye disease, treat infections and potentially even fight cancer.
Research published in Food & Function reports that bioactive components of graviola leaf extracts may have a positive cancer-fighting effect due to the free radical scavenging abilities and antioxidant enzymes it contains, thus helping eliminate cancer cells. It’s believed that the graviola leaves kill cancer cells by blocking ATP production. ATP, aka adenosine triphosphate, is a usable form of energy for cells. This energy is contained within a chemical bond that, if released, can be used to foster other activity within the cells.
Soursop is very low in calories. A 100g serving yields the following:
Though soursop combats inflammation in cells by virtue of its high anti-oxidant content, this refers to more direct inflammation, such as that in arthritis. Various other parts of the soursop plant have also been used traditionally by natives of Central and South America to treat inflammation brought about by snake bites, although it must not be mistaken as an antidote.
It is well established that soursop is loaded with anti-oxidant compounds, which by themselves offer great protection against many threats our bodies face on a daily basis. However, that does not bolster active immunity. Instead, some of the nutrients, such as Vitamin C, help to stimulate the production of T cells and lymphocytes, which function as the first line defense against infection. By improving your white blood cell count is high enough, your immune system will protect you from the majority of foreign pathogens it may come across.
All in all I gave my grandfather some teas to drink, Soursop leaves. We drank them together and although I can’t 100% confirm it was a result of the teas, he is now cancer free. I drink Soursop juice to help prevent cancer cells from developing. I would suggest everyone do this because the amount of energy I receive each day from this juice is enough to drink it for that purpose alone. I get mine from amazon.ca, prices aren’t great. It is actually very expensive to purchase but I would have to suggest ordering in bulk to avoid large shipping fees.
