Soursop: The Cancer Killer We Never Knew About?



The soursop fruit is a funny little fruit found in Asian markets all around the world. But little do people know that soursop, the cancer killer, can treat a variety of tumour types, and works as a great preventative measure in developing cancer in the first place.

Cancer will affect nearly 1 in 3 people at some stage in their life. With such a high rise in cancer rates, and very few treatment options (most of which leave you feeling incredibly ill and disable you for months, or even years), it is no wonder that a majority of cancer patients are turning to alternative medicine to help cure them of the disease. Nature is full of natural treatments, not just for cancer, but for many illnesses, such as the Soursop, which has been found to be 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy at attacking and killing cancer.

Why have we not been aware of this natural medical treatment for cancer?

The main reason is because pharmaceutical companies are presently reproducing several annonaceous acetogenins in the laboratory. Since you cannot patent natural chemicals, these companies are trying to re-create the chemical structure in order to make synthetic acetogenin that can be patented and marketed to its full potential. There is no money to be made for pharmaceutical companies when it comes to Mother Nature and her promising medicinal plants. Until this plant’s active ingredient can be patented in such a way that money can be made from it, these companies will not support or fund clinical studies that will help support and prove to a further extent, this plant’s miraculous effects against disease and illness. Nature is the cure, we are aware that this plant is powerful, so why not use it as a prevention and a cure, when it is available in full abundance? We don’t need a drug made from the plant, all we need is the plant itself (and I assure you that this drug will likely be FAR more expensive when it is developed, than the fruit itself).

The soursop, a fruit of the flowering, evergreen Graviola tree (Scientific name: Annona muricata) is native to Mexico, Cuba, Central American, the Caribbean and northern South America. The fruit, roots, leaves and bark are all used in natural treatments, however, the active ingredient, Acetogenin, is most concentrated in the leaves of the plant. The fruit itself is very large and has a subacid sweetish pulp that can be eaten as whole or can be concentrated down to a fruit juice (the main way this fruit is consumed).

What diseases is this fruit effective against?

The Soursop leaf and bark have been shown to regulate blood sugar and cure diabetes. This has led to discoveries of the fruit’s effectiveness of disorders of the endocrine system: liver, kidney, thyroid, pancreas, ovary, prostate, intestines, gall bladder and appendix. It has also been shown to fight lung & breast cancer as well as brain tumours. It has been proven effective as an anti-spasmodic and eliminates dust mites that cause asthma and bronchial diseases. The leaf tea itself can cure liver issues, and improves pancreas functioning, while effectively de-worming children, and curing malaria. Lastly, it has been shown to raise immune defence in chemotherapy patients as well as HIV (AIDS) patients.

Why is this fruit so powerful?

In 1976, the anti-cancer activity of graviola leaves was first noted by the National Cancer Institute, stating that “The NCI, or the National Cancer Institute did some research on the guanabana cancer cure [sic] and came up with some interesting results. The study…showed that the leaves and stems of the plant were incredibly efficient at destroying certain cancerous cells in the body.” This study was not publicly released, however, subsequent research on graviola conducted at Purdue University has proven promising results.

Much of Purdue’s research focused on the anti-tumour properties of annonaceous acetogenins. Oberlies, Chang, and McLaughlin (1) found that tumour cells that are resistant to chemotherapy treatment, or, multi-drug resistant (MDR) cells, were effectively destroyed by acetogenins. MDR cells develop resistance to all chemotherapy treatments, leaving the patient at a dead end. MDR cells require incredible amounts of cellular energy (Adenosine triphosphate; ATP) in order to rid themselves of these chemotherapeutic drugs. This made MDR cancer cells prime targets for acetogenins that were found to effectively block ATP transfer into these cells, inhibiting their function in a way that eventually leads to cell death.

It is important to note as well, that researchers who have explored the mechanisms used by graviola are only  specific to cancerous cells, and not healthy cells. Why? Because cancer cells have a consistently higher level of cellular activity, and thus produce a much higher level of ATP, and is better recognized and targeted by the acetogenin molecules. This is of benefit to the user since chemotherapy targets BOTH normal (such as stomach and hair cells) and cancerous cells, causing the often devastating side effects of nausea, weight loss, hair loss, and overall low quality of life for cancer patients. Graviola only targets cancerous cells, thus our other cells are left untouched.

One study conducted at the Catholic University of South Korea and published in the Journal of Natural Products stated that graviola was 10,000 times more effective against cancer than the popular chemotherapy drug, Adriamycin. A second study from South Korea showed that graviola had no negative activity on healthy cells (unlike the devastating effects Adriamycin has on the body), as we saw previously.

Is Graviola Safe?

Naturopath Leslie Taylor (2) acknowledges that alkaloids are highest in the seeds and roots of graviola and because of this, have shown neurotoxic effects in tests. She recommends, instead, using the leaves and pulp of the fruit when trying to treat certain illnesses (which is beneficial considering the leaves contain the highest concentration of acetogenins). Pregnant women should not consume large amounts of this fruit or the leaves, barks or seeds, as the fetus produces large amounts of ATP, thus acetogenins could attack the developing fetus.

Take Home Message:

Although no large-scale studies on humans have been conducted, preliminary research shows hope that this fruit is highly effective in combating cancer cells. Further research on this plant must be emphasized and demanded from the public. With such astonishing results as these, it is curious as to why larger studies on humans have not been conducted. It could very well be the case that pharmaceutical companies want to keep this miracle under the covers until they either patent it, or do nothing with it so they can remain making millions of dollars from chemotherapy treatments and radiation. What are your thoughts on the matter? I would love to hear everyone’s opinion!

Where Can You Buy Soursop? 

Fresh soursop can be found in almost any Asian food store. I can find it in Winnipeg, Canada in my local Asian shops. It is also widely abundant in Costa Rica and the rest of Central America for cheap. Also grows in Mexico, Cuba, Northern South America (Columbia, Peru, Brazil, Ecuador and Venezuela). You can also buy pure graviola pureé online at!

    • I did a full treatment of apricot kernels and my tumor kept growing. I measured it to track it. Finally had to turn to conventional medicine at which point I was found to be stage 4 cancer that had metastized to the bone.

      • Hi Sara, I am leaving a message for you babe, because you say you did a full treatment of the apricot kernels and the tumour kept growing? The reason could be babe, is that if your cancer is really terminal, then sometimes apricot kernals do not work? But it does for most? I am also replying to your message due to the fact that it is so up to date! Please Sara, do not lose hope babe! PLEASE WILL YOU TYPE IN:
        EARTH CLINIC: CANCER this is the most brilliant site I have been on for some years, you will get all the help you need babe! And this applies to all who are online! This is a site whereby over 3,500 cures have been made! When you log in just type earth clinic Cancer! On this particular subject you should find about 15 pages on cures from kitchen cupboards that are actually curing you of cancer! Please don’t laugh! I am serious! This site is about thousands of people coming online from all over the world, they state what they used, if it was a cure they will rate it as five, if dangerous they will state it just watch the reviews! When you get to the bottom of the people that have written what they tried, you will see page 2, 3 4, 5 etc, just click on to each page! Have a pen and paper handy and take notes! You will find your cure amongst these pages, just try anything and everything! These are people who care about others. I am a 70 year old lady (looking 40 lol) but I care about people. There are many simple cures out there Sara, if the apricot kernels didn’t work, go for another, but please! Try to stay away from chemotherapy and radiation treatment, they are a killer! I am wondering If you are in the USA? That means the FDA are blocking all cures! As is the Medical profession namely where I reside in the UK, hence Cancer who have accused over 147 treatments as “quackery” I cannot believe the thousands of lives they have taken by using their horrific and barbaric treatment. This is all about the Pharmaceutical companies who don’t give a damn whether you live or die, please, if you value your life or have anyone ill, please go online to EARTH CLINIC; TYPE IN WHATEVER ILLNESS YOU HAVE! Thousands are online ready to help you. These are highly intelligent people from all over the world who are fighting back! They refuse to let the FDA or take over their lives with their humiliating and useless treatment. Over 100 doctors have been murdered in the past 12 months! WHY? Because they have all found cures of cancer, etc.etc. and the FDA and the British Medical association are so obsessed with money! If you have a cure for cancer?
        The FDA or will run them down, talking of the dangers! It is ludicrous. I have been researching for many years. Please if you value your life? Think of alternative cures, you will not find it by having chemotherapy or radiation treatment, in fact even if you have terminal cancer, you will live longer by not having this barbaric treatment. I am a 70 year old lady (yes, looking 40 lol) but I care about people, and if you think you can get a cure by even the most ridiculous treatment? You go for it. The government don’t own you! You owe it to yourself to get better. I need to go offline now, as I haven’t slept for almost 48 hours and I am very tired, but I sincerely wish you all the very best of luck. May I please say PLEASE WHATEVER CHOICE YOU CHOOSE? PLEASE RESEARCH OR TYPE IN: SIDE EFFECTS! THIS IS MOST IMPORTANT. I wish you all the best of health.

  4. Carly,

    Based on the tendencies of improvement you’ve probably studied from other fruits and veg, does something like this seem possible?

    What are your thoughts on eating a plant as the source to cure something vs a concentrated version of it, made into medicine? (natural medicine – not pumped with a bunch of extra ingrediants).


    • Yes, something like this definitely does seem possible.

      The variety of Amazonian fruits that the general public is not aware of just goes to show the incredible variety and unknown tendencies of these fruits and/or herbs. Most pharma-giants do not want anyone to know of them because it would essentially ruin their business. Every fruit is different with respect to antioxidant load and the different types of antioxidants they carry – and seeing as how these preliminary studies have shown such powerful results is really tempting – it would be curious to see how it would apply in humans, and it is also doubly curious how pharmaceutical companies, as we speak, are trying to patent the chemical in the fruit in order to make money off it (obviously they know that this fruit has potential for a cure).

      I believe that eating the plant straight up is going to be MUCH more beneficial than any pharmaceutical-manipulated compound from the fruit, or from a fruit juice that has been processed and heated, which destroys beneficial enzymes and antioxidants. As for turning it into a natural medicine, such as capsules, I would say it would be better than something a pharmaceutical has tried manipulating (since that would need a patent, and thus the chemical structure would need to be manipulated, and thus it would be a much less potent form). However, raw, as always, is best! Fresh fruit is always number one!

      • Cool, that makes sense and I can completely understand why people would want to go in business with this fruit.

        I was just thinking it could be even stronger if you were able to produce a concentrated extract of the fruit but raw and natural is probably more safe too.

  5. I can help anyone who needs the Soursop cancer killer fruit. It is widely grown in Ghana and it is normally harvested in season. Get in touch with me via my blog page if you need some.

    You might consider importing it into your country.



  6. Soursop is quite plentiful in BELIZE. We have a couple Soursop trees at our place that produce around February & March. Thanks so much for this information – gives us a good reason to plant more. We have other species of the genus, Annona and Biriba (Rollinia) – I wonder if they have similar benefits?

  7. Aug 21st 2012 – Interior decoration is a matter of pleasure or stress, depending on how you look at it. This technology is brand new and has only been around for the past 6 months. The flight is scheduled according to the needs of the passenger at his or her own pace complete with any stops or side-trips that may be requested. How can this be for real? Something is going wrong. It is 2012, and this is the United States of America

      • I would consume it daily, as for the tea, do not use boiling hot water because too hot of water can ruin the beneficial properties in the tea. Make sure the water is only warm

      • If the water is not hot how can you make a tea without boiling the water. Please inform how to make a tea without boiling the water. Should we just put the leaves in warm water and let it sit. Please give us me some advice about how to make it dark without boiling the water. Should we put in on the stove or microwave the water and leaves in a cup. And how many leave should we use. After boiling can we leave leaves in the water while drinking it.

  8. what if .. a guy was to go to the carribian .. and get a whole but load of seeds .. and come up to canada .. and grow these in a green house that maintained warmth all winter as well ..

    one more question ..

    if one was to just eat the fuit , would it be benifical .. or would it harm you .. ??? would it help against disease .. and help prevent or even cure your cancer ..

  9. i would very much like to find someone who could ship me the seeds of this plant .. and i will plant them here in canada .. take care of them , and just plain help people in need .. if anyone klnows how to obtaing the seeds for thyis fruit trewee .. please let me know .. i will pay top dollar for them ..

  10. This is called Guanavana in Mexico. Mainly we do water and ice with it and is delicious. You can find it in Mexican markets and is seasonal. You can buy lots of it and make some thick water and freeze it and use it as you need.

  11. what if you eat it and can you give it to children on regular basis? What if you get amuned to it if you eat everyday?

    • I don’t believe you will get immune to it, the effects will just keep your body in a state that will help prevent cancer, given your diet is relatively clean of processed foods and acidifying foods like meat, eggs, dairy, refined sugar, etc. Children can eat fruit, all fruit.

  12. Thanks for another wonderful post. Where else may anyone get that type of information in such an ideal means of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am on the look for such information.

  13. i own a large plantation of this soursop graviola, i have enough to supply and export to any individual…. i think this tree needs to be owned by every household before the phama companies buy them all….

  14. All natural things including fruot, vegitable,minrals having medical effects.GOD create all these thing for the betterment of humanity.

      • Tony,

  15. Hi there

    I am looking for these leaves in Melbourne Australia for my mum who is fighting lung cancer.

    I have found the fruit (which she is eating at the moment) but I know that tea from the leaves is much more concentrated and therefore helps more.

    For those in melbourne looking for the fruit, I found a whole heap from a few Asian stores in Hampshire Road in Sunshine West. They don’t allow you to purchase too many and some don’t allow you to purchase any at all. Anyone know why? They all seem very secretive and almost always check with their manager before they give us a response.


    My email is [email protected] for anyone who can help!

  16. My dad has been fighting pancreatic cancer since May 2011. He has had his pancreas completely removed along with other things and now has metastases to the liver and undergoing chemotherapy. Would this possibly for him?? Can he take it along with chemotherapy?? How much should he have daily?? I live in the United States so where could i find it??

    Thanks so much!!

    • Maybe stores that carry frozen fruit pulps packaged by Goya brand, we live in TX and find them at Hispanic food markets.

  17. Help! My dad has stage 4 liver cancer and is going through chemo. He is pretty stubborn and doesn’t do the whole organic natural diet like I do. I’m slowly moving him that way but he is pretty set in his ways. How would I get him to eat this? From everything I’ve read it shows a ton of promise. Can it go in smoothies?

  18. My mom has diabetis I wish I could get some for here so she can be cured if anyone can get me some for her and send it to me than call me at 269-483-9561 Leave a message asking for dad with a way to contact you please it would mean a lot to me thanks

  19. My father has a lever cancer and done chemo theraphy.after this i started sour sop fruit.when it is effective.last 7 days i started .kindly advice

    • Make sure you also remove inflammatory foods from his diet like wheat, dairy, eggs, meat and any other processed foods and refined sugar. Soursop is effective, however you need to ensure that other things are not going to impede it’s ability to work. Alkaline diets are where it’s at when you have cancer. Reducing stress, proper breathing techniques, organic food, and staying in a constant positive mindset are key.

  20. Kindlydvice preparation of soursop juice i mean making juice. My father feel very stress and is normal like milk wheat and vegetables

  21. Hi, arnold iweka-

    I just read great article in what Carly describe about Soursop. Thanks, I really appreciate it.

    Arnold, I learn you own a large plantation of this soursop graviola and can export to individual. What is the best way to reach you like website or email address?

    Peace with Light

  22. I am too late to know about this fruit. Indeed, soursop taste sweet and juicy. My husband died due to pancreatic cancer, I should have bought this fruit for him.Sigh!

  23. My father has a liver cancer….Can anyone tell me about soursop ?? how to use it and how much time it will take to recover ? Carly Fraser I need your answer…

  24. By mistake, my freshly gathered leaves and stems were put in the freezer. Does anyone know if this will alter the efficacy/benefits of them in treating leukemia?

  25. We have been giving 3 mugs a day to my mums border collie who was riddled with bone cancer, vets all wanted to put him down, 3 months later he is cured , he is like a new dog, we give him small dose now as it started making him a bit sick too acidic but still pop it in his dinner and hes fine, cant believe how well he us now, he was on deaths door, i love this fruit and i will shout it from the rooftops how amazing it is, and easy to get hold of .

    • Hi . How u have given soursop. Please advise. We have just started to. My father who is in stage 4 lung cancer.please tell the way we should prepare and how many leaf.

      • I’m not quite sure how to prepare, but just use common sense. Steep some leaves in 1 cup of water, and increase the dose as needed. Eat the soursop fruit a couple times a day.

      • We buy in nottingham uk , dried leaves a shop called tings and soak 30 leaves in medium size pan and simmer for half hr too, add more leaves daily and drink, i like to add fresh ginger or lemon too , x

        • Well i am doin 3 times daily in a little scrambled egg , then in his food later and again at night, taking doggy probitics is important too , get onnline amazon etc do also i sprinkle serrapeptase on a cream cracker in the morning, you can get from seventhwave they pure with no additves, they for humans but dogs can also take, great for joints, arthritis etc hope that helps vicki

  26. After I came out with the news last June that a cancer doctor told me I had prostrate cancer and suggested a high frequency treatment that is not approved in America and could only be done in Mexico at the cost of $25,000, I immediately looked at alternatives. I contacted my nephew in Vancouver, who was about to become a doctor, and he suggested I meet with a Dr. Rick in Victoria, BC. That doctor changed my diet and put me on supplements, and within a year I brought my PSA numbers down drastically and eliminated the cancer threat. I also treated the condition with hemp oil (hash oil). With the diet, the supplements and the hash oil, plus a session with a world-renowned healer, Adam Dream-healer, I’m cancer-free. That’s right, I kicked cancer’s ass! So the magic plant does cure cancer with the right diet and supplements. I’m due for another blood test, MRI, etc., but I feel the best I’ve felt in years. And now for a celebration joint of the finest Kush
    for all cancer patient that live in Europe, America and Canada region, get your Hemp oil from: [email protected] or [email protected]

    • Amazing!! I am so glad to hear your success story with alternative cancer treatments! Thank you so much for sharing your story, I hope it can help inspire others and lead them in the right direction 🙂

      • Can one take Sour Sop fruit/tea while receiving immunotherapy?

        My father has melanoma, Stage 4 and can only down a half of the fruit on a good day. He will begin his course of the drug in two days. Should he stop? Wikipedia said that it may interfere with the effectiveness of chemo.

        Anyway, I barely found the fruit here in NYC but the source is not reliable. I did buy a decent supply of leaves from him though they aren’t too fresh. Advice from survivors/survivor’s relatives?

  27. hello
    i am a grower in south florida , and we happen to grow this fruit -we call it soursop
    if any one is interested we have them for sale and can fed ex them anywhere in the usa
    my phone number is 305-939-1556 dennis the name of our farm is farm fresh produce…

  28. the leaves are never going to be very fresh , the reason being as soon as you clip them off the tree they start drying up… the best way is to pack them in dry ice and ship it directly to you. that is the way we use to sell them…

  29. only if you live in tropical climate areas you can grow these trees, we grow them in south florida and they do not like the cold at all, anything below 50 degrees for more than a couple of days and the trees will die,
    and they will never fruit indoors, reason being they can get the nutriants from being planted in a pot. there roots like to spread out. our farm has about 20 producing trees right now. we planted 100 more this past year but its very unlikely they all will make it. its a hard tree to grow in the united states but we managed to keep our trees going. and the usda doesnt allow the commercial shippments of this fruit into the usa because of a mite that lives on the fruit. thats why you always see the pulp or jucies, but i have the fruit and the leaves and i will ship to anywhere in the usa, you can call me at 305-393-1556 or email me at

  30. Carly, i see your an expert on soursop, i would like to ask you a question,,, i am a grower of soursop in south florida. we currently produce a little over 4500 lbs. a week of the fruit. but the trees are very difficult to grow, but my question is this, we also grow ateimoya . sugar apple, monstra deliciouso ,and cherimoya which are closely related to soursop. and they are much more easier to grow in south florida. do you know if they have the same or similar properties of the soursop fruit. thanks and hope to hear from you. or 305-393-1556 dennis

      • Hye Carly, we have a daughter, had lack of oxygen while birth complications, she can not talk,
        26 years old. has aztma she is not physically handicapped, has development disorders, she hears
        but doesn’t respond to us properly, she’s stuburn that’s what they told us her handicap school phsychologists also: is the reason why she didn’t progress or learn!
        do you think the sourcop or the leaves can help her or do you have any other suggestions?
        we greatly appreciate your opinion!

  31. if i may jump in, there is a fruit that we grow in south florida that is called wax apple it looks like the flower of a chashew tree and is very benifical as a anti inflamatory ,also mangostein which is in my oppion the best thing for back pain, artritis reumatoide almost any joint discomfort , the only thing is that you cant get it in north america fresh, they come from thailand and they are irradiated so the fruit is sterile of its properties. and young coconuts, i personally have been drinking 1 young coocnut everyday for the past 3 years and never been sick , i use to always get sick in the fall , always, but since i have been drinking young water coconuts -not even a sneeze, also it help cleanse your digestive track which helps manage weight gain and flushes out impureites in your stomach. and also i have read that it limits the alcohol that is absorbed into your blood. and bittermelon , the next superfood, we started growing these cucmber shaped vegetables last year, and we have been selling out everyday, asains and indians are our biggest customers , and they are very expensive but they are very very healthy . if you go online and read about them you will be very impressed, the only thing is that they are very bitter. hence the name bittermelon.

  32. Great information! It includes a lengthy vibrant reputation for use within herbal treatments in addition to an extended documented native use. Within the Peruvian Andes, a leaf tea is useful for catarrh and the smashed seed can be used to destroy parasites. Inside the Peruvian Amazon, the actual bark roots as well as leaves can be used for diabetic issues as well as as a sedative plus antispasmodic.

  33. I have 2 large soursop trees in my backyard. I wanted to take advantage of the health benefits from the leaves. Today I collected a bunch of young leaves and stems and blended them up in the blender. I added just a little water and it made a really thick green pulp. I decided to freeze it and use it for future use in case anyone I know ever gets cancer or if my dogs ever get cancer. I have boxers and they are prone to cancer. My question is if one of my dogs gets cancer how much of that green pulp should I mix into his food every day? Or should I just give it to them as a prevention? I have no idea how much is too much and how little is too little.

  34. my husband has cancer and I wuld love to get someof this for him.He is o his 4th year of chemo……please,somebody email me with this information on how to get this..Thank you and God Bless….

  35. […] Known for its cancer-healing abilities, the soursop isn’t very sour at all. I had the pleasure of tasting it in Costa Rica and was pleasantly surprised. The fruit itself is very fibrous, and tastes similar to a pineapple mixed with strawberries and oranges with underlying notes of coconut. It is native to Mexico, Cuba, Central America, and northern South America. It looks similar to a cherimoya and is actually in the same genus as the cherimoya and papaya. […]

  36. We will be bringing to California and North Carolina the soursop and wheatgrass juice, branded as Jinga Juice. We will start selling from there for easy access. Its a food supplement from 2 superfoods! For our convenience, the company is making great effort to preserve the potency of this natural superfoods foods by converting them in powder form through cold process including the seeds of soursop and the fruit skin which also has concentrated anti cancer properties in it. We have plenty of individual testimonies about its healing effects here in the Philippines there is no doubt about its wonderful effects! If only medical doctors include them in their studies and prescribed regimen to patients, people will use it more instead of just immediately resorting to pharmaceutical products. We still look up to our doctors and modern medicine to really help us get well. "Let your food be thy medicine and your medicine be thy food!" Thank you Carly for your website, you are giving us a glimpse of hope that natural and cheap remedies are still the best choice and strengthening back its credibility! We are drowing in pills now. Its crazy how some people would spend all their resources to get treated with drugs, radiation and chemotherapy and hesitate to spend less money on prevention and try on these natural remedies. For inquiries you may email us at [email protected]. Thank you!

  37. Carly, thank you for the insight of drinking the leaves with warm water instead of having the water boiled. It makes sense. I was boiling the leaves…

  38. Interesting to read about this amazing plant and God's creature.We have it in the compound and I was just moved to check the web for assistance on care,considering how it was shedding it leaves right in the rainy season. Knowing that deciduous trees shed their leaves during the hot season,and or I feel probably neighbours are harvesting the leaves for its importance as a neighbour came and ask to get some of its leaves few days ago.I thank God I took time to find out about the sour sop plant.I got the information I am ignorant of.Thank you so much for this good and Educative research.

  39. Amazing and Educative.What makes the tree to shed its leave during rainy season? We have one in our compound.I also noticed young flowers meant to grow into fruits shedding.What can be done? Please enlighten me.

      • Ok. Thanks. Do you know if I can get a sour sop in new Zealand. And weather the soursop tree would grow in nz we have temperature rannging from 15 to 30 degrees in the summer. someone I know has Brest cancer and they really want to get this fruit. I have herd it's 1000* more powerful then Kemo therapy and it only targets the cancer cells. Again we really need this amazing fruit. Thanks nick.

  42. thank you so much Dr Agbani my sister told me how she got your contact “[email protected]” from a blog during a possibly search on how to cure skin cancer with cannabis oil on the internet. i was shocked when she called me few months latter and told me Dad was certified free competely from his skin cancer which he had been battling with for the past 3 years and half. words can never ever be enough to expressed how we his children feel about his health right now, indeed you are God sent to our family.
    thanks a million

  43. i would like to get the sour sop for friends of mine.i had two friends of mine pass already I'm hoping to help someone else.

  44. Dear Carly, may I thank you sincerely for all you are trying to do in helping people. I would hope that my message regarding Health Clinic will be allowed to be put on? This site has saved me twice in what I would refer to as the most ridiculous cure? It helped me! I am a 70 year old lady (er looking 40 and good) but have severe medical problems, I am trying desperately to help all I can, and I haven’t slept for almost 48 hours, so I am feeling really tired, my son, Paul is very proud that I am trying to help people. I lost my Polish step-father to terminal cancer, and my gorgeous husband Chris, the only guy who ever said “I love you” I have 5 Polish half sisters who never accepted me as a sister, have run me down, and caused me severe distress, yet still I am trying to help anyone who is seriously ill or suffering with a terminal illness. May I say, you have nothing to lose! Try the most ridiculous cure, it might just work! I would also apologise Carly, I did click on to notify me of follow up comments by email and notify me of new posts by email, but I am trying so hard to help people, but I spent literally hours on just one person alone, without a word of thanks, I did all the work, so I am a little afraid of receiving loads of emails. It has taken me three weeks to read literally hundreds of pages that I have printed off, off possible cures for certain illnesses, mainly cancer and severe breathing difficulties, and as fast as I cure this backload of paperwork, I find myself once again printing off paperwork, I simply need a break because it is making me ill, and having severe sleeping problems. I can direct anyone to possible cures, but cannot guarantee them, you simply have to read what you see, and decide for yourself, so I close and hope all of you find the cures that you so richly deserve, and sincere regards to Carly who is obviously trying to help people.

  45. Hi again. My final reply this morning because it is almost 1am in the morning. I stated that over 100 doctors have been murdered by the FDA! If you want proof please google:
    HEALTHNUTNEWS.COM This has been written by an activist Erin Elizabeth, the amount of doctors who have been so called “murdered” because they stated cures of cancer! You will see a list come up. I sincerely hope that this lady Erin Elizabeth or Elizabeth Erin has not been “eliminated” this is a very brave lady who is trying to get the word out about more than 100 doctors who have been “murdered” and the conspiracy behind the FDA! Amongst these includes a guy, his wife, and their little girl who was all murdered” Please log in to this website, people are hoping this very brave lady will not be next on the list! May I also state that an African Doctor known as Dr. Sebi, from South Africa has been “murdered” recently, just look him up on utube! This man is a man of wisdom and has helped many, and also the only man who was summonsed to court, and actually won his case! Who claimed to cure HIV, etc.etc. please just check it out, this man was brilliant who cared about people! Rosina Lock A.M.AN.F. ICNHS. RSA (NOT LINKED WITH THE NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE!)

  46. Hi all, I think what makes this fruit special is that it’s high in vitamin c.
    I think if you can get vitamin c threw Iv it would also work!

  48. I am testifying every year of my life on how i cured my cancer With Cannabis Oil in 48 days

    My journey with cancer began in January of 2009. Then in June of 2011 I was diagnosed with cancer. Average life expectancy is two and a half to three years. Early in the year of 2014 I was introduced to Rick Simpson hemp oil by a friend from Vancouver, Canada. Around that time I met some interesting people on facebook who had a lot to say about cannabis oil curing cancer, The testimonials of people who have been cured were incredible. I can’t mention names, but I wrote on the wall of one of the groups that are fighting to legalize cannabis, asking if anyone knew where I could get my hands on some cannabis oil. A few days later the universe hooked me up with just the right person – the medication was procured and delivered to me within 2 days.
    Rick Simpson has been providing people with instructions on how to make Hemp Oil medicines for about 8 years. Cannabis is very strong and the idea is to build up the daily dose over time. One dose is a drop on your finger about the size of “half a grain of rice”. Since that August in 2014, Shirley’s had no sign of cancer. I feel strong, brave, invincible…and I’m so loved…that’s worth staying for, I would say! Rick Simpson have proven that properly made hemp medicine provides relief and cures many diseases such as; liver failure, Stroke, Fibroids, Heart Disease, Hepatitis, Epilepsy, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, Asthma, HIV/AIDS, Kidney Disease,(Chronic Kidney Disease), cancer and many more. Simpson has provided hemp oil to hundreds of people with various medical conditions and the results speak for themselves. The procurement is free because he said he does not produce it for sale rather he produce it to save life of people having cancer problem in the world. All i pay for was the delivery charges to deliver the medication to my door step thanks to God and Dr Rick Simpson for my health again.

    please share with others and save a life today God bless you!

  49. Am glad to share more light on cannabis oil,its natural and treatment can slow or stop the disease.Medication is so effective which are felt after few weeks of treatment and help patients in vast suffering,it makes anyone who has it available,capable of being their own doctor…You can get more details on procurement process via [email protected]…i believe in a total transformation after use of oil.

  50. I am in Australia and got my leaves off, great quality. Drinking it 3 cups a day on empty stomach 1/2 hour before meals for 1 month then stop for a rest then another month. 5 to 7 leaves in boiling water simmer for 10 to 20 mns…tea can just sit there but after 7 hours put in fridge, start fresh batch every day in the morning. After 3 weeks i feel it has helped me with endocrine system, i had swollen lymph nodes they are coming back to normal, helped with my headaches, haven't had any yet while drinking. I normally have sinus headache at least once a week. I am taking it in hopes of reducing my thyroid nodule. A friend told me her nodule showed on scan as smaller after taking regular daily doses of graviola in form of pills. I don't want my thyroid taken out as a "prevention" and be on a freaking pill for the rest of my life like so many people I know so I am giving graviola a go…so far so good…the activity in my nodule has ceased, it feels calm, (same with activity in lymph nodes around breasts) and i even think it is shrinking…will verify with scans in 2 months when i finish graviola treatment

    Many thanks of your sharing.Hope to hear from you soon.

  53. my mother taught me as a kid how to make this juice from scratch in the island. sad to say she died of breast cancer and i didnt know till now 15 years later. i love this juice and now i got my son hooked cause he says its so refreshing. my dad now sends me leaves and i make tea and drink it every morning and at night before bed. now its my turn to show my son how to make sour sop juice from scratch

  54. In case of a prostate, how do i prepare this composition for maximum benefits?
    Like, if am supposed to use leaves, in what quantity, and how often should a patient
    take it?

  55. hello , so the love of my life 37 yrs old just found out he has melanoma stage 4 . it was detected late because we are african american,meaning you show no visible signs because of the melanin in our skin. this couldnt be the toughest time yet.. so anyway, i been googling and researching natural remedies online, like tumeric, garlic, and castor oil(for skin). but then i was also talking to friends and one friend told me about graviola,and she uses this in her country and its hard to get, she says its powerful and kept quiet, i never heard of this fruit, and it never popped up when i was researching. so i looked up the fruit and the first thing i saw was cancer cure…i told her i need it plz…with the prayers and having friends like that i was able to get my hands on the raw fruit…so i just started giving it to my love like a double shot twice a day. and i will update you guys soon. sometimes it takes everything to heal natures fruit.

  56. Carly: Thank you for the information and being active in the comments. After reading everything I'm still unsure about some things:
    1). Is it the fruit or the leaves (to make tea) that really contain the acetogenins (chemical that destroys the cancel cells)? I think I am asking that right. It does not seem clear to me in what was written if the leaves of the tree or fruit. A lot of comments about the fruit but then the references to cancer treatment are the leaves. Do you know enough to be specific?
    2). Is there are reason people intermix graviola, soursop, graviola, soursop, guanabana and corrosol? Are you assuming they are different plants? We don't call an 'apple' the fruit and then rename the tree. Yet, it seems your article will call the fruit soursop and the tree graviola. Why? I ask as it seems confusing in terms of classification or understanding.

    • Hey Chris, I believe most of the research done on soursop comes from the leaf, but there are also studies that prove the fruit is beneficial as well. In many countries, people use the bark, leaves, root, and fruit of this tree for traditional remedies.

      And the fruit has a variety of different names like graviola, soursop, guanabana. I am not totally sure why, but when I was in Costa Rica, some people called it soursop, and some people called it graviola (maybe graviola is the Spanish term?).

  57. I am so grateful to Dr. Williams Leonard herbal Cannabis oil I am Veronica Bell I live IN USA. I was diagnose with pancreatic cancer December 2016, and ever since then i have done Chemo and Radiation that have not help me, but only damaged my immune system and Makes me weak.

  58. I think its really helpful with what Iam seeing and experiencing it. I have a elder sister and was with her for a week and came back to work. Just this morning after a week at work and received call that she is recovering slowly and some improvement in her sickness. Need to continue for another 2 – 3 weeks before she is fully recover. Thanks to the mother nature..for God's Glory.

  59. Hi Carly, thanks for this article. I have a fibroid and in my search I've discovered that soursop and bitter melon are two herbs that help shrink fibroids. Now my battle is to find these. I'm in Kelowna and don't have a big Asian market like T&T (one thing about Edmonton I miss). In the markets do they sell the leaves as well as the fruit? I have more research to do of course. Mahalo.

    • Hey Jody – I am pretty sure you can order online! I reference where you can buy in this article 🙂 I do not believe they sell the leaves as well as the fruit – I have never seen that. Maybe in the tea/herb section?
