For people of the past, the graviola plant is one of those plants that are useful due to its medicinal properties. Studies today have proven that graviola is also beneficial as an alternative remedy for cancer. Studies are still being conducted today to explore further the healing power of the graviola plant.
IN many studies, it has been shown that graviola contains many active compounds and chemicals that have healing properties including natural phytochemicals which has potent anti-tumor properties and exhibit selective toxic property against tumor cells. Aside from this, it has been shown that graviola has anticancerous, antitumours, and antiviral properties.
With graviola, enzyme processes in cancerous cells are inhibited by its natural compounds. The toxicity of these natural compounds is selective; they are toxic for cancerous cells but not in healthy cells. Even the stem and leaves of the graviola plant were shown to have 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. In ovarian, breast, cervical, bladder and skin cancer cell lines are also affected by the high toxicity of graviola’s natural compounds even in very low dosages.
Compounds in the graviola herb also exhibit antiparasitic, insecticidal, and antimicrobial activities. Graviola leaves possess antioxidant potential and is an effective radical scavenger.
Many cancers today are known to be related to nutritional and antioxidant deficiencies that result in a compromised immune system. This leads to the body’s inability 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.
There are many reasons why mainstream medical establishments have not accepted the finding and evidence of herbal medicines and nutritional therapies which may be far more effective against cancer. It is because they will profit more from chemotherapy than natural medicines. They also have suppressed evidence and findings of the benefits of the graviola plant in fighting cancer.
With graviola plant still being under investigation, it inspires us to know that more and more people in the world want to get hold of this great potential to treat our serious sicknesses. If you go to health stores today, you will find graviola extracts, graviola powder, and graviola supplements being sold to promote optimal health in individuals and used as a general health tonic.
We look forward to the day when these new findings on the treatment of cancer will finally have a fair hearing and will finally be accepted by the drug companies and the medical industry as one of the best anti-cancer treatments that we can ever have. When that day comes, many of our cancer patients will appreciate the work that was poured towards finding a cure for cancer.
