Fighting Cancer with Graviola
Even in ancient days, Graviola has already been recognized as a plant with medicinal properties. Today, with lots of research, the graviola plant has been proven to be a cancer alternative remedy. Studies are continuously being conducted to get more information about the healing power of the graviola plant.
The active compounds and chemical in the graviola plant were shown to have anti-tumor properties which are selective against tumor cells. Graviola is shown to contain anticancerous, antitumorous, and antiviral properties.
The natural compounds in graviola is found to be able to inhibit enzyme processesin cancerous cells. The toxicity of these natural compounds is selective; they are toxic for cancerous cells but not in healthy cells. IN other studies, graviola stem and leaves have shown their active toxic effects against cancer cells. The selective toxic effect is exhibited by the natural compounds in graviola against different cancer cell lines including lung, prostate, breast tumor, liver cancer, pancreatic, colon and breast cell lines. Very low dosages exhibited high toxicity particularly to ovarian, breast, cervical, bladder, and skin cancer cell lines.
Other properties of graviola compounds include antiparasitic, insecticidal and antimicrobial activities. The antioxidant potential of graviola leaves makes it an effective scavenger of free radicals.
Nutritional and antioxidant deficiencies result in a compromised immune system which are very much related to the presence of cancer today. A compromised immune system will not be able to fight off free radicals that allow cells to mutate to cancer cells. although chemotherapy can help slow down cancer and allow remissions, it is not really an effective cure to it.
Mainstream medical establishments have not yet fully accepted findings and evidences of herbal medicines and nutritional therapies that are more effective in the fight against cancer for many reasons. It is because they will profit more from chemotherapy than natural medicines. And they have suppressed evidence and finding that graviola can make a huge difference in fighting cancer.
There are still many ongoing studies being made about the graviola plant as a cancer cure, but this encourages us to know that the plant is already being used worldwide for its potential to treat our serious ailments. Today, you can already buy graviola extracts, graviola powder, and other graviola supplements being sold in the market to promote optimal health and used as a general health tonic.
Someday, even if the graviola plant will not be profitable to drug companies and the medical industry, with all the promising new findings that can benefit human health, it will still get its fair hearing. These studies that we are having today will not be wasted when it will finally be proven fully and accepted by all to be the best natural cancer treatment known to man.
