Do you remember the famous couple of the movie « Grease » formed by Danny (John Travolta) and the sweet laidy Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) ? Well, during the 90’s, at the age of 43 the lovely Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer. During this tough battle she decided to follow a strict macrobiotic diet.

Today, she has a healthy life although she prefers eating uncooked food and a diet that she calls « Herbiage » that is basically a lot salad and vegetables, proteins and she includes the famous peruvian Camu-Camu in her diet.

Olivia is very involved in helping people fighting against Cancer and she has also published a cookbook called « Livwise » where she uses not only Camu Camu but also Maca.

You can listen her interview made during the BBC program the Woman’s Hour in 2012 where she talked about her experience during her illness and and how she overcame that dificult moment.

Peruvian Maca and the Immune System.- Peruvian Maca has the highest concentration of calcium than any other plant of its kind. This is a powerful restorative tonic for anaemic and convalescent people of diseases that require the formation of red blood cells; good also for menopause and menopause.

Maca also contains Zinc which helps the oxygenation of tissues. It also contributes to the normal development of the hair, therefore its deficiency may cause the tendency to alopecia or baldness or disorders in the appearance and vitality of the scalp.

It has been discovered that Maca contains more protein than any other Root. Its content of phosphorus, iron, iodine and calcium is also abundant. Iodine, as it is known, is a great tonic of endocrine glands, especially the thyroid. Calcium and phosphorus to help the growth of the human body and bone formation; It also has abundant carbohydrates that humans used for maintenance and replacement of power.

Maca and the Immune system


Blood: Erythrocytes, leukocytes and platelets are suspended in a liquid yellow, watery, called plasma, which is the mass of blood. Plasma also contains blood, sugar, fat, and vitamins, along with salts of calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus. A six or seven percent of the plasma is made up of proteins, among them are the gamma globulin, associated with the immunity of the body against infectious diseases, and fibrin, without which blood can not clot. In 1994, Dr. Virginia Garro, expressed in his national journal which studies the properties of Maca for more than 20 years, that the analysis made by her and other scientists in other parts of the world was determined that one of the properties of Maca is the strengthen the immune system. Maca could help in healing of AIDS says: it has been shown that high content of iron strengthens cancer patients, its alkaloids Act on the central nervous system to produce energy in people who consume it, that this is notable in the treatment of elderly. Therefore it is likely that associated with other components science can be used it to treat patients with AIDS.


Menopause is a natural transition that occurs when estrogen production drops below a certain level and therefore stops ovulation and women no longer have the rule. The decrease in the production of estrogen actually occurs since the age of 35 years. When estrogen levels fall, the woman undergoes the following changes:

The blood vessels are weakened The liver does not receive impulses to make good the bad cholesterol. The density of bones begins to fall at a rate of 1-3% per year. Serotonin (the brain neurotransmitters) , which contributes to the relaxation and sleep is affected.

In consequence; These changes associated with menopause can become health problems such as:

high cholesterol, high blood pressure, damage to the bones, pains in the joints and osteoporosis. vaginal and dryness in skin, sweats, hot flashes of heat and emotional disorders such as sudden changes in smoke. increase in the risk of cardiovascular disease and breast cancer…



The fundamental problem of the menopause is a hormonal imbalance; moreover, the same aging process is caused largely by the drop hormone levels. Conventional medicine is often applied “hormone replacement (HRT) treatments“, in order to somehow compensate the lack of those female hormones and alleviate the symptoms of this stage. However, there are many risks associeted with that:  heart attacks, breast cancer or even dementia, among other diseases.

In addition of being expensive treatments; the inclusion of hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone can indicate to the main glands of the body (the hypothalamus and the pituitary) which hormones should be produced less internally (because it has an external source), permanently damaging the natural capacity to produce these hormones, and creating a dependency on these external hormones. For these reasons many women feel frightened and who do not want to continue with this therapy.


Rejuvenation of the endocrine system naturally:

Indeed according to many prominent researchers,

Dr. Gabriel Cousens (Arizona USA) says: “whenever possible, I prefer to use a treatment with Maca Root before some hormone replacement therapy because this type of therapy (HTR) affect body glands ability ability of producing those hormones naturally. Maca has proven to be an effective treatment in patients stage of menopause; eliminating hot flashes of heat and depressions and increasing energy levels naturally. Finding the proper dosage, sometimes I have started treatment with a half teaspoon of maca powder or 3 capsules daily. In some cases I have increased the dose to a teaspoon or six capsules a day for maximum effectiveness”.


Benefits of MACA before, during and after menopause

The surprising thing about Maca Root is the fact that it contains natural substances that stimulate the “pituitary and the hypothalamus“. These glands, in turn, activate the ovaries, adrenals, testes, thyroid and pancreas to return them to a healthy functioning, as well as produce a normal number of hormones. This has been demonstrated with sex hormones by salivary hormone tests. In addition, a number of people taking thyroid medications have realized that they can stop taking or reduce the use of thyroid hormone.

During perimenopause (symptoms that lead to the last menstrual period), the consumption of maca from this stage helps in the hormonal balance which is unbalanced at this stage. For example if the estrogen is the dominant, maca will increase levels of progesterone hormones to find a point of balance. In addition consumption of maca at this stage helps the endocrine system to be healthy; what contributes to ease the effects of menopause.

During menopause: MACA prevents the emergence of flashes of heat, caused by hormonal imbalances; the mood swings are also reduced thanks to a treatment with this Andean tuber. Many doctors are already prescribing maca to treat “chronic fatigue syndrome”, adrenal fatigue, and to restore the energy and vigour of the elderly.

During post-menopausal: at this stage the maca helps to increase hormone levels to a State post-menopausal healthier; In addition to preventing osteoporosis (thanks to its large quantity of calcium), very common in the post-menopausal. To this respect tells Stephanie Smith “a patient who had been taking maca for more than one year had a series of studies of density in the skeletal system and showed an increase in the density of the column”.

No product is effective for all women, but in the majority of cases, maca works very well.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The pawpaw (Graviola) tree, which bears the largest fruit native to North America, may bear new fruit forscientists seeking ways to fight cancer. Purdue University researcher Jerry McLaughlin, working with doctoral student Nicholas Oberlies, has found compounds in the bark of the tree that have shown preliminary success in fighting some drug-resistant cancers.The studies, published in two separate journal articles this summer, show that the pawpaw compounds 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.

The findings were detailed in the journal Cancer Letters and the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry. Though further studies are needed to pinpoint exactly how the pawpaw compounds work within the cancer cell, McLaughlin says their effect is to pull the plug on the energy-producing mechanisms in the cell. McLaughlin notes, however, that the effect on drug-resistant cells has been studied only in laboratory cultures and will require additional study in animals before it can be tested in humans.”Multidrug-resistant cancer is hard to treat because the cancer cell has developed a mechanism to get around the anti-cancer agent,” says McLaughlin, professor of pharmacognosy in Purdue’s School of Pharmacy and Pharmacal Science. “Tumor cells that survive chemotherapy treatments often recover with increased resistance to the agent used in the original treatment program as well as to other related drugs.”

Such resistance can develop when surviving cancer cells develop one or more mechanisms to accelerate the removal of noxious substances, including anti-cancer drugs. One of the most common mechanisms used to circumvent the anti-cancer agents is to develop a “pump” that is capable of pushing anti-cancer agents out of the cell before they can kill it. These pumps are called P-glycoprotein mediated pumps and are named for the type of protein used to construct and operate them. Though all cells have the ability to develop such a pump, normal cells seldom do. Even in cancer cells, which do not respond normally to the body’s control mechanisms, only a small percentage of cells develop this pumping mechanism. “If having this pump was such a good deal, all cells would have it. But all cells don’t,” McLaughlin says. “In a given population of cancer cells in a person, maybe only 2 percent of the cancer cells possess this pump. But it’s those 2 percent of cancer cells that eventually grow and expand to create drug-resistant tumors.”

One of the tricks currently attempted in treating cancer patients is to flood the body with other compounds to keep the pump busy, and then administer high doses of an anti-cancer agent in hopes that some of it will be able to stay in long enough to kill the cancer cell. “But the high doses of the drugs required for this treatment often produce side effects, such as loss of blood pressure, so the patient often succumbs to the side effects of the treatment,” McLaughlin says.Though this pump mechanism is efficient at eliminating most anti-cancer agents, McLaughlin, whose research group has identified more than 40 pawpaw compounds with anti-cancer properties, discovered a series of the compounds, called Annonaceous acetogenins, that were capable of killing cancer cells that employed this mechanism. He then designed a laboratory study to analyze the cytotoxic or cell-killing effects of one of the compounds, called bullatacin, on human mammary cancer cells. The study compared bullatacin’s effects on standard, nonresistant cancer cells and on multidrug-resistant cells.In the June issue of Cancer Letters, the research team reported that bullatacin prefere intially killed the multidrug-resistant cells by inhibiting the production of adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. ATP is a compound that works to release energy in acell and is essential to all cell processes. “A multidrug-resistant cell requires a tremendous amount of energy to run the pump and extrude things out of the cell,” McLaughlin says. “By inhibiting ATP production, we’re essentially pulling the plug on its energy source.”Though the pawpaw compounds also inhibited ATP production in noncancerous cells and nonresistant cancer cells, those cells were not affected as dramatically, McLaughlin says.

“Normal cells and standard cancer cells may be able to minimize the effects of this compound because they don’t require the vast amounts of energy needed by the pump-running cells,” McLaughlin says. “The resistant cell is using its extra energy for this pump as well as to grow, so it is really taxed for energy. When we mess with the energy supply, it kills the cell.” McLaughlin and his group then did a follow-up study to test a series of 14 structurally similar pawpaw compounds to determine the structural features that maximize this biological activity in multidrug-resistant cancer cells. The results were published in the June issue of the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry. “This study tells us how to maximize this activity, so we have a pretty good idea what compounds we’d like to try in animals with multidrug-resistant tumors,” McLaughlin says. If proven effective in animals and humans, McLaughlin says, the compounds may be used to treat multidrug resistance in a variety of cancers, because many types of cancer cells develop resistance by employing a pump.The studies were funded by National Institutes of Health/National Cancer Institute, the Indiana Elks Cancer Research Fundantion, Purdue Research Foundation. Purdue has filed a patent on the use of the pawpaw compounds.

Oberlies, Vicki L. Croy, Marietta L. Harrison, Jerry L. McLaughlinDepartment of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, School of Pharmacy and Pharmacal Sciences, Purdue University.Cytotoxic effects of the Annonaceous acetogenin, bullatacin, were studied in multidrug-resistant (MDR) human mammary adenocarcinoma (MCF-7/Adr) cells vs. the parental non-resistant wild type (MCF-7/wt) cells. Bullatacin was effectively cytotoxic to the MCF-7/Adr cells while it was more cytostatic to the MCF-7/wt cells. ATP depletion is the mode of action of the Annonaceous acetogenins, and these agents offer a special advantage in the chemotherapeutic treatment of MDR tumors that have ATP-dependent mechanisms. ABSTRACT: J. Med. Chem. 1997, 40, 2102-2106 Structure-activity relationships of diverse Annonaceous acetogenins against multidrug-resistant human mammary adenocarcinoma (MCF-7/Adr) cells Nicholas H. Oberlies, Ching-jer Chang, Jerry L. McLaughlin Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, School of Pharmacy and Pharmacal Sciences, Purdue University. Fourteen structurally diverse Annonaceous acetogenins, representing the three main classes of bis-adjacent, bis-nonadjacent, and single-THF ring(s), were tested for their ability to inhibit the growth of adriamycin-resistant human mammary adenocarcinoma (MCF-7/Adr) cells. This cell line is resistant to treatment with adriamycin, vincristine, and vinblastine and is, thus, multidrug-resistant (MDR). Among a series of bis-adjacent THF ring acetogenins, those with the stereochemistry of threo-trans-threo-trans-erythro (from C-15 to C-24) were the most potent with as much as 250 times the potency of adriamycin. A spacing of 13 carbons between the flanking hydroxyl of the THF ring system and the gamma-unsaturated lactone seems to be optimum with a spacing of 11 and 9 carbons being significantly less active. Several single-THF ring compounds were also quite potent, with gigantetrocin A (11) being the most potent compound tested. The acetogenins may, thus, have chemotherapeutic potential, especially with regard to MDR tumors.

“10000 times stronger killer of Cancer than Chemo”.. do share it.. can save many lives, fill up hopes and build confidence in the patients..

The SourSop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than Chemo.

Why are we not aware of this? It’s because some big corporation want to make back their money spent on years of research by trying to make a synthetic version of it for sale.

So, since you know it now you can help a friend in need by letting him know or just drink some soursop juice yourself as prevention from time to time. The taste is not bad after all. It’s completely natural and definitely has no side effects. If you have the space, plant one in your garden. The other parts of the tree are also useful. The next time you have a fruit juice, ask for a sour sop.

How many people died in vain while this billion-dollar drug maker concealed the secret of the miraculous Graviola tree? This tree is low and is called graviola in Brazil, guanabana in Spanish and has the uninspiring name “soursop” in English. The fruit is very large and the subacid sweet white pulp is eaten out of hand or, more commonly, used to make fruit drinks, sherbets and such.

The principal interest in this plant is because of its strong anti-cancer effects. Although it is effective for a number of medical conditions, it is its anti tumor effect that is of most interest. This plant is a proven cancer remedy for cancers of all types.

Besides being a cancer remedy, graviola is a broad spectrum antimicrobial agent for both bacterial and fungal infections, is effective against internal parasites and worms, lowers high blood pressure and is used for depression, stress and nervous disorders.

If there ever was a single example that makes it dramatically clear why the existence of Health Sciences Institute is so vital to Americans like you, it’s the incredible story behind the Graviola tree.

The truth is stunningly simple: Deep within the Amazon Rainforest grows a tree that could literally revolutionize what you, your doctor, and the rest of the world thinks about cancer treatment and chances of survival. The future has never looked more promising.

Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be possible to: * Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss * Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections * Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment * Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life

The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of America ‘s largest drug manufacturers, the fruit of over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the 1970′s! What those tests revealed was nothing short of mind numbing… Extracts from the tree were shown to:

* Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer. * The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug! * What’s more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells. It does not harm healthy cells!

The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Graviola tree have been extensively researched–so why haven’t you heard anything about it? If Graviola extract is as half as promising as it appears to be–why doesn’t every single oncologist at every major hospital insist on using it on all his or her patients?

The spine-chilling answer illustrates just how easily our health–and for many, our very lives(!)–are controlled by money and power.

Graviola–the plant that worked too well

One of America’s biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon Rainforest.

Various parts of the Graviola tree–including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds–have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis. Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree’s anti-cancerous properties–and were shocked by the results. Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.

But that’s where the Graviola story nearly ended.

The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree–it’s completely natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There’s no way to make serious profits from it.

It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to synthesize two of the Graviola tree’s most powerful anti-cancer ingredients. If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviola so potent, they’d be able to patent it and make their money back. Alas, they hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated. There was no way the company could protect its profits–or even make back the millions it poured into research.

As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research!

Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Graviola research team whose conscience wouldn’t let him see such atrocity committed. Risking his career, he contacted a company that’s dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.

Miracle unleashed

When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola, they began tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola–and its shocking cover-up–came in fast and furious….

….The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola’s “leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells.” Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public…

…Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials–the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment’s value–were ever initiated…

A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin…”

The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.

A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers. Seven years of silence broken–it’s finally here!

A limited supply of Graviola extract, grown and harvested by indigenous people in Brazil, is finally available in America.
