Graviola Cancer treatment?
WHAT IS GRAVIOLA?
The Graviola tree, annona muricata, Brazilian pawpaw, guanabana, soursop, is a tree that is found deep in the Amazon jungle and also on some Caribbean islands. The tree produces the fruit graviola and this fruit in particular can revolutionize what the world thinks about cancer treatment, so much so that even the Health Sciences Institute reported back on it in 2001 and I quote “today the future of graviola cancer treatment and chances of survival look more promising than ever.”
The fruit is green and heart shaped, and the pulp is popular in different juices, smoothies, sherbets, etc. So why haven’t we heard more about this as the new cure for cancer, now in 2012, or why isn’t every healthy publication talking about the benefits of this treatment and made widely available, especially by every oncologist at every major hospital? Well permit me if I may give you a brief history lesson as to why it didn’t make a lot of noise then and why it still isn’t the miraculous treatment for cancer now, and this is not to say that it very well couldn’t be.
GRAVIOLA MYSTERY, MIRACLE, DISCOVERY, HISTORY
Again according to the Health Sciences Institute the pharmaceutical company that discovered the miraculous healing power in the graviola fruit, spent years trying to isolate tow of the tree’s most powerful anti cancerous ingredients, but unfortunately for them they could not replicate the original ingredients, so with this all they were left with were the tree’s extract and since we have federal laws that state that natural substances unfortunately cannot be patented, therefore the company felt like they wasted their time and money and shut down the project and research. So due to their frustrations they decided if they couldn’t profit from what they had discovered then no one else should be able to and so they didn’t publish their findings. But one of the researchers in the group decided that this was too big of a discovery to keep secret and couldn’t hide the fact that they may have discovered the cancer killer.
According to research that this pharmaceutical company had done and other companies as well it was reported that the Graviola fruit had been shown to in fact kill cancerous cells. Why was this such a huge discovery, simply because it may be the cure that would help eradicate the big players like breast cancer, which millions of women are diagnosed with everyday, in fact 1 out of every 8 women may be diagnosed with this cancer in their lifetime. How about lung cancer, which is another killer, killing millions each year, not to mention colon cancer, prostate cancer and even pancreatic cancers?
IS GRAVIOLA CANCER CURE?
Over the past few years, many companies have tried to look into this graviola fruit because of the possible medicinal benefits it may have as far as attacking the cancer safely and leaving your healthy cells alone. Not causing you to have extreme nausea, weight loss, hair loss which we know are side effects of most chemotherapy drugs. It also can make you feel stronger and healthier and boost your energy and improve your outlook on life. Again reiterating, no reason as of yet has been approved to be done in human clinical trial so this is still relatively new and perhaps maybe something we hear more of in the near future. Some people have chosen to take the graviola dietary supplements and implement that as part of their treatment, if you are an individual considering to take this route it is best to talk to your physician and of course do your research.
There is no denying that it may have some medicinal benefits but for the moment in time it is not to be utilized as an alternative to the other treatments your physician recommends for your cancer. Just keep in mind that since 1976 this fruit has been proven according to research to be a potent cancer killer but like previously said no double blind clinical trials which are used to judge the value of a treatment were ever initiated. Hence, where the problem lies, because without clinical trials done, and more so because it is now classified as an herbal supplement or can be found in extract form, it may be a while until we know if is in fact a cure for some cancers. So with this said without or until human trials are done it would be difficult to know with certainty.
