Soursop Leaf Tea

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

I’ve decided to post soursop leaf tea recipe tonight since this is the time it is most beneficial. You see soursop leaf tea is a natural soporific so for those of you who have trouble sleeping this is a wonderful tea to make. But the medicinal uses of the soursop leaves does not stop there. The leaves also kills head lice and bedbugs. It is used as an analgesic (painkiller) and antispasmodic (supresses spasms) and in a number of ailments ranging from cough, fevers, indigestion and most of all cancer.

Soursop leaf Tea and Cancer

In my recent research online I came across some stunning evidence that soursop was effective against a range of cancer which included colon, breast, lung, prostate and pancreatic cancer. It was so effective against colon cancer that a certain chemical from the soursop had the ability to selectively kill colon cancer cells at almost ten thousand times that of Adriamycin, a common drug used as a part of chemotherapy. Wow, that is some strong stuff!

Further reading showed that soursop was a real wonder because of how it targeted only cancer cells and left healthy cells intact, unlike chemotherapy which destroyed healthy cells as well in its process and also had serious side effects such as nausea, vomiting, hair loss and weight loss. The article on cancer is a great read for anyone seeking a more natural approach to healing cancer. This though, comes with a disclaimer attached and it must be stressed that before attempting any alternative treatments that you consult your oncologist or health care provider.

Look at that! Right here right in my backyard I have this tree growing and I never paid attention to it; only when it bears fruit. This is one tree I have to learn more about because it has many medicinal uses that could save you from a trip or trips to the doctor. Just think about it. Would you prefer to spend $400. for a doctor’s visit plus an additional $200. to buy tablets or just boil some soursop leaf tea for your ailment? I know what I would do…..Yawn!! Sleep is here and (No, I did not drink any soursop leaf tea ) I have to go before I …strt… to… tipe ……………stup………………pid…………………..sllll . Here’s soursop leaf tea.

    I am a cancer survivor and I also drink soursop leaves tea. I also find it hard to sleep and had been on medication for a loooooong time. Now, all I need is just this tea and by 9pm, I am already in bed. I also try to eat the fruit as much as I can. I posted the Triad Ritual for Cancer, which included the guyabano.
    See Victoria’s Box ( Facebook ) for my shared postings.

      Hi Mary,
      I am sorry to hear of your illness. It must be distressing to not find the leaves. I feel obliged to help somehow. I can get my hands on some soursop leaves. However, it would have to be dried before I ship it out to you. Customs will not allow green leaves out of the country. I hope dried is fine for you. Please, email me your address at . I will tell you when they have been sent. This is of no charge.

    Thank u for the great article. I think Guyabano leaf tea is best as is & without any sugar & milk. Esp for those trying to avoid or are already at any cancer stage, cancer cells thrive on sugar & anything dairy. So best one avoids those two. That’s all, but thank you again!
