Simarouba Cancer Cure

Simarouba decoction is also used in traditional medicine in the treatment of cancer and tumors. Simarouba leaf decoction when taken in limited amounts can raise the immunity, reduce appetite loss and  increase quality of life in cancer patients. It can also be used to complement modern cancer treatment. Simarouba Glauca has very good anti-bacterial, anti-tumorous properties. Hence Simarouba is very effective in reducing the size of tumors and secondary infections in cancer patients. It is very effective in curing cancer of first/second stages, whereas in later stages it can considerably increase the quality of life.

Quassinoids (ailanthinone, glaucarubinone, and holacanthone) found in Simarouba has  anti-leukemic (against blood cancer) properties. Glaucarubinone has also  been found to improve mitochondrial metabolism and hence improve energy levels. Early cancer screening performed by the National Cancer Institute in 1976 indicated that an alcohol extract of simarouba had toxic actions against cancer cells at very low dosages (less than 20 mcg/ml). In south america, the leaves and bark of Simarouba are used as a powerful digestive aid. There are two varieties (red and white) of Simarouba. Both of them are equally good in treating cancer.
