La tisane de feuilles de graviola corossol un traitement naturel contre le cancer
The tea leaves of soursop graviola a natural treatment against cancer


The acetogenesis Annonaceae is realized only in the Annonaceae family. Several Acetogenic exhibit antitumor, antiparasitic, pesticides, antiprotozoal, antifeedant, anthelmintic, and antimicrobial. The medicine has shown interest in chemicals to potent antitumor properties. So far, several research groups have attempted to synthesize these chemicals for the development of new chemotherapeutic drugs.

In a review of these natural chemicals in a newspaper of natural products, the following observation was made: "acetogenesis Annonaceae is the anti tumor agent and new pesticides that come only in the Annonaceae family soursop graviola ".

From chemical point of view, these are fatty acid derivatives of long chain.
From the biological point of view, they show their powerful organic activities by the depletion of ATP levels mitochondrial complex I and blocking NADH oxidase of plasma membranes of tumor cells, thus frustrating the mechanisms ATP, led by the resistance.


Several studies have demonstrated the efficacy of the plant:

At the University Pardue in California, it was demonstrated that the acetogenins realize a selective blockade of cancer cells and the growth of cancer cells which are resistant to adriamicin (chemo therapeutic drug), respecting the integrity of the cells healthy tissue. In another étuderéalisée by mêmeuniversité, power acetogenins of soursop graviola has proven to be extremely strong, ED50 (lethal dose 50) of 9-10 micrograms per milliliter. This corresponds to a power of 10 000 times more powerful than adriamicin.
Of étudesréalisées between 1998-2000 by McLaughlin and Chih Hw, Chui HF show that acetogenins block complex I of oxidative fosforilation chain that blocks the formation of ATP or energy whose carcinogenic cell needs and triggers its bomb P-glycoprotein, which holds active. Acetogenins also block ubiquinone oxidase, NADH-dependent enzyme and typical of the plasma membrane of the cell carcinogenic. McLaughlin's research focused on acetogenins bullatacin and Bullatacinone.
The Caribbean Studies prove that there is a possible link between consumption of soursop graviola and atypical forms of Parkinson's disease due to its high concentration of annonacines, which is 15 mg / 36 mg and fruit / cane juice markets. This concentration is 10 times greater than that of tea leaves of soursop graviola (140 mg / cup).
In March 2002, Japanese researchers published a revealing study conducted in vivo in rats that were injected with Lewis lung cancer cells!. While a third of rats received no treatment, another third was treated has adriamicin, took the last third of the main AnnonaMuricata L. acetogenin called "annonacin" (in dose of 10 mg / kg)

The soursop graviola has a long tradition in the use of natural medicine and traditional with its virtues, well known for centuries.

In the Peruvian Andes the tea leaves is prepared to cure colds, and used crushed seeds to kill parasites.
In the Peruvian Amazon, leaves and the skin are used to fight against diabetes, or as a sedative and antispasmodic.
In the Brazilian Amazon, the infusion of the leaves is drunk to relieve liver problems.
In Jamaica, àHaïti and the western Andes, the fruit juice is used against fever, parasites and diarrhea. The skin and leaves are used as an antispasmodic and calming the heart, to relieve cough, flu, asthma, hypertension and parasites.
Recommended in case of constipation and for increasing the intestinal flora, reduces hyperacidity. The octopus has digestive effects and ripe fruit has diuretic properties and is an excellent remedy against hematuria and urethritis.

Combat colic, diarrhea, dysentery, dyspepsia, fever, flu, hypertension, insomnia, kidney pain, stress, palpitations and lice, ringworm and internal ulcers.

The fruit is also praised for its antibacterial, antiparasitic, antispasmodic, astringent, cytotoxic, antipyretic, hypotensive, insecticide, pectoral, sedative, stomach, vasodilators and worming.


As we have seen, the consumption of soursop graviola has many advantages to help us fight against certain malignant processes. This is supported not only by preclinical studies but also, in a way, traditional medicine, which uses the soursop graviola the leaves to cure superficial tumors through sheets of plaster.

If the recommended dosage is not exceeded, soursop graviola is a powerful weapon of nature, which has already proved its success in certain malignancies. It should, however, realize more studies (clinical) and disclose, so we can fight against cancer and other ailments with the soursop graviola.


Soursop graviola may potentiate antidepressant drugs and interfere with the inhibitory drugs of MAO-A.

Pregnant women should avoid consumption of soursop graviola since it could be counterproductive for grosesse.

      Autoimmune thyroid disease is called Hashimoto's thyroiditis there. This is a thyroid inflammation that damages the thyroid us and forces us to take a thyroid replacement hormone ( "Levothyrox").
      We need a functional thyroid to balance our temperature, our psyche (mind).
      For a thyroid problem I board the maca of Peru Biologically.
      This is a plant that grows in the Peruvian Andes and whose medicinal properties have been known for over 5000 years.
      Recent research shows that maca has a stimulating effect on the pituitary and hypothalamus, which explains its significant role in the proper functioning of other endocrine glands such as the ovaries, testes, adrenal glands, pancreas and the thyroid gland.
      The anti-fatigue effects of maca occur quickly (within 72 hours) and the increase of energy is due to the regulatory action that maca acts on the thyroid gland.
      Looking forward to serving you

    Hello David !
    Is this type of cancer tumors: epidermoid carcinoma. The graviola and turmeric can help or is he does something else to add?

    • David Hervy says:

      Hello Hermine
      Squamous cell carcinoma is the second most common type of skin cancer after basal cell carcinoma. It represents about 20% of skin cancers. It remains relatively rare although it is less so than melanomas (10% of skin cancer) that can lead to serious metastases.
      This type of skin cancer develops from the cells of the spinous layer of the epidermis, which is the surface layer of the skin. The EC can reach all parts of the body, including oral and genital mucosa, but they are most common on areas of skin exposed to the sun such as the face, ears, lower lip, the bald scalp, neck , back of hands, arms and legs. Often these areas of skin show signs of sun damage, such as the presence of wrinkles, brown spots or loss of elasticity.
      As natural treatment in addition to the daily dose of graviola soursop leaf and turmeric capsules bio, I board the bitter apricot kernels organic and capsules lapacho.
      Our restoration of wishes

      Hi Marianne,
      For your husband, I advice you to associate graviola leaf, dandelion root, bitter apricot kernels, artemisia and organic baobab powder for iron, and the immune system, and finally the maca .
      If your husband is a course of a few weeks simplment before his speech, I think you should be the maximum amount per day advice on bags.
      For your thyroid problem here are all the details:
      The medicinal and nutritional uses of Moringa include: anemia and undernutrition, inflammatory pain and arthritis, asthma, heart problems and high blood pressure, digestive and bowel, headaches, kidney stones, the fluid retention, bacterial, viral, parasitic and fungal and thyroid disorders. And more …
      The sheet has a regulating effect on the thyroid gland. And in vivo studies demonstrated that we methanol extract of the leaves have protective effects against radiation.
      Moringa leaves contain amino acids, including the 8 essential amino acids that can not be synthesized by the body. Therefore, we must find them through diet or supplements.

      Phenylalanine content in the organic Moringa leaf plays a role in the nervous system, particularly by stimulating the thyroid gland, alleviating pain, participating in the synthesis of certain neurotransmitters. It is also considered as an intellectual stimulant.
      The natural product that can also help you much, it is the maca (Lepidium meyenii)
      This is a plant that grows in the Peruvian Andes and whose medicinal properties have been known for over 5000 years.
      Recent research shows that maca has a stimulating effect on the pituitary and hypothalamus, which explains its significant role in the proper functioning of other endocrine glands such as the ovaries, testes, adrenal glands, pancreas and the thyroid gland.
      The anti-fatigue effects of maca occur quickly (within 72 hours) and the increase of energy is due to the regulatory action that maca acts on the thyroid gland.
      We offer the maca organic shop in bags of 100g or capsules.
      In presention you can take 2 capsules each day.
      Best Regards
