Many people have been promoting the consumption of soursop to kill cancer cells. It means soursop works well than chemotherapy as some cancerous cells are resistant to chemo treatments. Graviola is something that comes from a tree in the rain forests of Africa, South America, and Southeast Asia. Its scientific name is Annona muricata. It is also known as cherimoya, guanabana, soursop, custard apple, and brazilian paw. In many countries, people use the bark, leaves, root, and fruits of this tree for health benefits.
People in African and South American countries have used graviola to treat infections with viruses or parasites, rheumatism, arthritis, depression, and sickness. Graviola can kill some types of liver and breast cancer cells that are resistant to particular chemotherapy drugs. We know very little about how graviola affects the body. But we do know it can cause nerve changes, causing symptoms similar to Parkinsondisease. So it may have harmful side effects for some people. Always talk to your doctor before taking any kind of complementary or alternative therapy.
