Soursop: Weighing the Potential for Cancer Treatment

Soursop Leaf Elixir  

From Cancer Diagnosis to Recovery

In February 2021, Lynette Hill, a 52-year-old resident of Fresno, California, was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. The aggressive form of the disease had metastasized to various parts of her body, including her stomach, lungs, ovaries, and bones.

Undergoing chemotherapy, Ms. Hill experienced a significant weight loss of 111 pounds—at 5-foot-7, she was down to 125 pounds. She had endured multiple hospital stays. At a particularly challenging phase in her treatment, she started researching alternative therapeutic approaches.

During those explorations, Ms. Hill chanced upon various articles on the National Institutes of Health website about soursop that she remembers reading. Motivated by hope, she traded her chemotherapy sessions for daily cups of soursop leaf tea, supplemented by other dietary changes for a year.

In February, her scans came back clear. Although her doctors hesitate to credit the soursop, Ms. Hill is sure of its effects.

"I don't know what you are doing," she recalls being told, "but you have no cancer cells in your body."

While established institutions remain cautious, some scientific studies hint at soursop's potential benefits.

A review published in Cancers looked at research that included hundreds of studies and stated that "the compounds of graviola have shown promise as possible cancer-fighting agents and could be used to treat cancer," and identifies compounds in soursop that might hinder cancer cell growth, induce cell death, and trigger cancer cell self-destruction across various cancers like pancreatic, lung, prostate, and breast.
