When I lived in the Caribbean this was widely used with much success for cancer of all kinds. I have access to fresh frozen fruit at a local ethnic store here in Florida.
SOURSOP / GRAVIOLA FOR BREAST CANCER and more
The Graviola Tree comes from the deep rain forest jungles along the Amazon. Its various parts, including the leaves, roots, fruit, fruit seeds, and bark, have been used for centuries by medicine men and women and natives of South America to treat asthma, liver problems, arthritis, heart disease.
Listed in an internal memo at the National Cancer Institute in 1976, the Graviola tree and its cancer healing powers would be unknown to the American public until the year 2000, after millions of lives had already been lost to cancer and to cancers greatest ‘helper’, chemotherapy.
Over twenty laboratory studies, kept quiet, have shown this tree to be 10,000 times more powerful than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapy. However, unlike Adriamycin which can make you very sick, knock out your hair, and even cause death (in some cases), Graviola does no collateral damage. There are no side effects.
In laboratory studies, Graviola selectively hunts down and kills 12 different types of cancer cells (without harming healthy cells) including breast, prostate, lung, colon, and pancreatic cancer. Additionally, it actually boosts your immune system making the patient feel healthier and stronger and improves overall energy and outlook on life.
The first rule of medicine: Do No Harm. This is one cancer fighter that follows that rule and Americans almost never heard of this because it was a Pharmaceutical company that did the studies, and when, after seven years of trying to synthesize the active agents in Graviola proved fruitless, THEY NEARLY BURIED THEIR WORK..
Doctors and patients around the USA are now using this product with amazing results. Do not wait for your doctor to discover it. And if your doctor tells you it’s junk, go get another doctor. There are doctors who want you to heal but their hands are tied. There are doctors who want you to heal but their minds are not open. And there are doctors who want you to heal and who will do anything that is needed to attain that goal without causing harm. Now that’s my kind of doctor.
We do not know of any side effects, other than possible mild gastrointestinal upset at high dosages (Over 5000mg) if taken on an empty stomach. To avoid upset, take with food.

Graviola selectively targets cancer cells leaving healthy cells untouched. Chemotherapy indiscriminately seeks and destroys all actively reproducing cells – even normal, healthy ones.
Other promising and ongoing research at Purdue University is supported by a grant from the National Cancer Institute. Purdue researchers 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.4 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 Catholic University of South Korea earlier this year, 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.2
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.”3
Perhaps the most significant result of the study cited above from the Catholic University of South Korea, and of each of the others we’ve found, is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the enemy–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.
“In 1997, Purdue University published information with promising news that several of the Annonaceous acetogenins ‘not only are effective in killing tumors that have proven resistant to anti-cancer agents, but also seem to have a special affinity for such resistant cells.’ In several interviews after this information was publicized, Purdue pharmacologist Dr. Jerry McLaughlin, the lead researcher in most of Purdue’s studies on the Annona chemicals, says cancer cells that survive chemotherapy may develop resistance to the agent originally used against them as well as to other, even unrelated, drugs.
‘The term multi-drug resistance (MDR)has been applied to this phenomenon,’ McLaughlin says. He explains that such resistance develops in a small percentage of cancer cells when they develop a ‘P-glycoprotein mediated pump’ capable of pushing anti-cancer agents out of the cell before they can kill it. Normal cells seldom develop such a pump.
Some people recommend that if you are using graviola, which reduces cellular energy, you don’t want to use CoQ10, which helps cells produce energy aerobically, because it may increase a cell’s energy production. On the face of it, this makes sense – until you consider that we want to help all the cells in our body produce energy aerobically, to make them more resistant to cancer which primarily used anaerobic energy production. The benefits of CoQ10, Oxygen Elements Plus and other oxygenators more than offsets any possible slight decrease in the effectiveness of graviola.
