The search for a cancer cure is never-ending. The current treatment options can leave you feeling ill and can completely immobilize you for months. For this reason, more and more people have been turning to alternative herbal remedies, which don’t involve medication, to fight back against the disease.
Cancer is a disease that is constantly under study because it affects about 1 in 3 people at some stage in life. While there are many variables that can contribute to the development of cancer, a poor diet is one of the most common causes. You can help decrease your cancer risk or improve your condition by eating a healthy, alkaline diet consisting of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts & seeds, and legumes. Eliminating meat, meat products, dairy products, processed foods, and added sugars from your diet can help keep you healthy.
Fresh ingredients have been known to have healing properties. For instance, garlic has antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties and lemons have antioxidants that help fight free radicals in the body. Similarly, Echinacea is a powerful immune boosting herb and parsley can help kill lung cancer cells. A new cancer-fighting food is trending, though, and it has been found to be 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy on colon cancer cells. Another study showed that extracts of this fruit can kill certain breast and liver cancer cells, which chemotherapy cannot effectively do. This fruit is called soursop.
Soursop is a Caribbean fruit with a sweet, milky flesh. A lot of people use this fruit to make juices, smoothies, or sorbets in the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, South America, Africa, and Polynesia. This fruit has a wide variety of health benefits, including antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that can fight fungal and bacterial infections. Since cancer can weaken the immune system, consuming this fruit can give you an immunity boost.
The reason medical companies try to persuade you into undergoing chemotherapy is because they cannot patent plants or natural chemicals. Attempts are being made to recreate the chemical structure of soursop to make synthetic acetogenin that can be marketed to consumers. This synthetic creation would help attack cancer cells, but it is always best to go straight to the source, i.e. eat or drink soursop.
The best way to consume soursop is to blend it into a smoothie. Wash and peel the fruit and remove the seeds before cutting it into chunks. Pour the fruit pieces into a blender and add a ½ cup of water. All you have to do is blend and then enjoy. It is best to drink this juice every day as alternative cancer treatment.
