If you sit around and listen to old-timers who live in the Philippines you will soon discover the entire country is a living example of an outdoor pharmacy …JUST RIPE FOR THE PICKING.
Guavano or Guyabano is a tree called graviola in Brazil, guanabana in Spanish and has the uninspiring name “soursop” in English. A native of tropical America, Guavano was introduced into the Philippines at an early date and is now cultivated in all parts of the Archipelago.
Guavano is a green, soft spine, pear-shaped fruit with a sweet-sour flavor. The skin is thin and its flesh is a white, soft fibrous pulp which has a very agreeable flavor but rather sour. Its mature, green fruit is used as a vegetable and made into sweet meat, while the ripe fruit is eaten raw or for dessert.
The fruit is very large and the subacid sweet white pulp is eaten out of hand or more commonly, used to make fruit drinks. A lot of concoctions can be made into guayabano like delicious sherberts, ice drops and fruit drinks. An assortment of punch and cocktail drinks can be made by mixing the nectar with wine rum or cola drinks or buko (fresh coconut) juice and ice.
Known as the Cancer Cell Killing Fruit…According to a recent study Guavano is the fruit that has a function 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy. This plant is a proven cancer remedy for cancers of all types. Besides being a cancer remedy, guavano 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.
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
* Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer..
Guavano helps control diabetes and helps protect the male prostrate. Its Lypocene content reduces the risk of cancer. The juice of the guavano leaves cures toothache, swollen gums and oral ulcers, heals wounds when applied externally, convulsions, epilepsy, bacterial infections and more.
A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Guavano tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers.

THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW: 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 Guavano 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 report is that guavano 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.
THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO SAVE: Guavano seeds! Plant your own drugstore.
