Are Alternative Cancer Cures Voodoo Medicines? The Herbal and Bio Resonance Therapies

Based on what I have seen on tv, the term voodoo is associated with dark magic, witch craft, zombies and satanism. In my own conception, anything paired with word “voodoo” is related to darkness and anyone should be afraid of it. So a voodoo medicine is … ?

A warning against voodoo cancer cures was published on website, inquirer newspaper,  and Philippine Society of Medical Oncology (PSMO) web.

Herbal supplements, according to PSMO, have no proven curative effects. While FDA Philippines stated , they have not approved any herbal medicine or health supplement as cure for such.

There is no viable alternative to mainstream cancer treatment. Herbal medicines might actually interfere with chemotherapy or medicines (maybe they have reliable literature for this). Treatments that maybe used in conjunction with standard cancer treatment are massage therapies, diet management, meditation, acupuncture, yoga and music therapy.

Herbal medicines and food supplements for cancer patients are attractive due to claimed quick results and low prices.

They also warned the masses against bio resonance therapies such as, oxygen treatment, colonic cleansing, megadosing of Vitamin C, antineoplastons and immuno-augmentation.

From what I have heard and read, there are three main reasons why cancer patients are resorting to alternative medicines, the alternative voodoo medicines.

First is the budget constraint. Cancer diseases are not only hurting someone’s health but also the health of his pocket. Imagine the cost of doctors fee, hospital bills, medicines and transportation. Worrying about owns disease and where to get huge amount of money to cover the bills, as high as skyscrapers, adds another illness, the depression that infects family members, relative and friends.

Wealth is not a guarantee  Every medicine practitioners know this. The standard cancer treatment can cure cancer but could not assure it will never come back. You will be surprised to know that you need to undergo the painful and costly process again.

The doctor cut the rope. You only have one year to live! There is always hope and alternative medicine offers a lot. The testimonials by many cancer survivors may not be acceptable to science but it do well in convincing the ill.

Guyabano Leaves Decoction | Personal Insights

Just want to put in my “two cents’ worth” about guyabano tea.

In March this year, my “balae” succumbed to end-stage cancer of the lungs. Being Filipino, his wife/family had wanted to try all sorts of herbal teas/concoctions that friends/relatives told them about, hoping for a “cure”. One was tea from fresh guyabano leaves that a neighbor provided generously. My balae kept a cup of the guyabano tea by his bedside and took sips throughout the day, whenever he could muster the resolve to tolerate the taste. I tried it myself; it was bad-tasting. Perhaps if the leaves had been dried before they were boiled, the taste would have been more palatable.

At any rate, I highly doubt that the guyabano tea did him a lot of good in the end; his illness was already too far advanced. That guyabano has health benefits, I believe, because there are a lot of plants out there that are good for our bodies. But to rely only on a particular plant for a complete cure, is, I think a bad idea. Plants only have the ability to work with our bodily systems to help them function normally/optimally. I am not an MD, just a BSHE graduate with nutrition background, but this makes sense. And if your body is already very sick before you begin any herbal treatments, you cannot expect miracles. I think the wise thing to do is to supplement medications prescribed by your MD with herbal teas, BUT ONLY IN CONSULTATION with the MD.

Some plants may have contra-indications for some medicines, like grapefruit is not recommended to be taken with medicines for high blood pressure. Of course, one would need to eat huge amounts of grapefruit before it becomes risky, but patients still get the warning printed on their medicine bottles because of the availability/popularity of grapefruit juice here.

Then again, there is always the placebo effect. Because a patient has a firm belief that taking that plant supplement will cure him, it just might!
To take herbal teas for the pleasure of drinking a soothing drink that may have benefits, is okay. My husband and I do this ourselves; hot tea after dinner is sooo good!

The US Food and Drug does not regulate herbal teas/supplements the way they regulate pharmaceuticals, and it’s mainly because there are not that many conclusive trials/tests to prove their efficacy, only popular beliefs based on traditions that have been passed down through generations in many cultures of the world. Actually, pharmaceutical companies have begun focusing on this traditional folk medicine that are plant-based to create new medicines with those desired results.

But as in everything else, moderation is key.

Guyabano Against Cancer and Other Diseases| Questions and Answers… with Ms. Reyes


A revised article recently submitted by Ms. Reyes. Hope this answers all the questions regarding guyabano tea preparation and treatment procedures!

Materials needed:

a. one 8 oz. cup of shredded fresh or air dried guyabano leaves
b. one liter water

Use mature (but not too old) leaves. These may be fresh or dried. However, air dried or shadow dried leaves are better than fresh because the drying concentrates the medicinal properties of the plant, therefore more effective. Sun drying or oven drying is not recommended because too much heat will cook the medicinal and nutritive values of the leaves, causing them to lose their potency.

The leaves are shredded to make extraction of the medicinal
contents easier and more complete.


1. Boil the water in a sauce pan.
2. As soon as it boils, add the shredded guyabano leaves and turn
down the heat to low.
3. Simmer the leaves for 20 minutes.
4. Turn off the stove. Let the tea cool, ready for drinking.

When you prepare guyabano tea, make only enough for the day because the potency of the tea is good only for up to 7 or 8 hours. You may put the tea in the refrigerator. Any leftover tea after drinking your daily dose must be thrown out. Make a new batch of tea every day.



a. This treatment requires drinking the tea 3 times a day, one 8 oz.
glass of tea, 30 minutes before every meal. ( The tea is
absorbed more easily in an empty stomach. When taken after
meals, the tea is mixed with the food, and it has to wait for the
food to be digested before it gets absorbed together with all
the other nutrients. Taken before meals, the tea hits the
bloodstream more quickly.)

b. The g-tea, drank 3x a day, 30 minutes before meals, is taken for 30 consecutive days only. More than that, it will affect your gut flora. The tea, despite its potency, targets only the sick cells in the body, leaving the good cells unharmed. However, after 30 days, it will destroy the good bacteria in the stomach.

c. After the 30-day treatment, have yourself checked up by a doctor to see if the disease is still there. Or, check yourself of symptoms. Are the symptoms of the illness still there? If check up result says disease free, then taper off your treatment dose to maintenance dose.

However, if the symptoms are still there after the 30-day treatment, REST YOUR BODY (specifically your kidneys) FOR 10 DAYS, NO DRINKING OF THE G-TEA. But after the 10 days, REPEAT THE 30-DAY TREATMENT PROTOCOL.

Even if the symptoms disappear before the repeat treatment is over, finish the 30 days to make sure that not a single sick cell is left in your body. Or else, that single sick cell will multiply very quickly, and the problem returns.


The 30-day treatment protocol then is this: Drink g-tea 3x a day, one glass 30 minutes before each meal, for 30 consecutive days, no skipping!


After the illness has cleared, don’t stop taking the g-tea abruptly. The maintenance dose is one glass of g-tea a day, 30 minutes before meals, taken for 5 consecutive days during the week, resting the body for 2 days. For easy remembering, drink the g-tea
from Monday to Friday, rest on Saturday and Sunday.

How long will one be taking the maintenance dose? For as long as you feel good taking the g-tea. Or you may taper off to the BODY TUNE UP.


Everybody, sick or not, may take the g-tea body tune up drink. Guyabano boosts the immune system: protects against flu, coughs and colds, fever, etc.

One glass of the g-tea, 30 minutes before a meal, at least 3 days a week, every other day. Like, drink g-tea MWF, or TThS, rest on a Sunday.


1. DON’T OVERDO ON THE G-TEA. An overdose will cause nausea and vomiting. However, if this happens, just lessen the dose down to your tolerable level. Like, instead of one glass of g-tea, make it 1/2 glass.

Adjust the dose for children. Maybe, 30 ml for kindergarteners, 1/2 glass for bigger kids.

2. Don’t add or mix some other healing substances to the g-tea because of the danger of chemical incompatibility. If at all, take them at different times. But g-tea must be taken before meals.

My sister has cancer of the ovary stage 3.. Specialist ask us to produce Php200,000 for chemo radiation but no assurance of recovery… I research for herbal medication and I found out that Guyavano can cure cancer 10,000 times the chemo theraphy. I bought guyavano for my sister and one day after eating guyavano she feels better. Now she is taking guyavano as part of her meals and this is her forth day of Guyavano medication. I see the continous improvement in her and we plan to bring her to Specialist after a month for check up.. We will give you updates from time to time.

Ma.Concepcion Regino 2011/04/24 at 10:21 pm
Today, my sister went to Quiapo by herself, so energetic, this is her 5th day Guyavano medication, aside from guyavano, I instructed her to always have ripe mango and leafy vegetables in her meals, guava for her vitamin C and banana as her energy food. I deprived her from eating processed food including junk food, instant food, soft drinks and coffee.
Please correct me if there is any conflict with my instruction.
I’m not a doctor I am prescribing according to research due to financial constraint.

Modern medicines absolutely won’t conduct studies on this wonder fruit dahil babagsak ang multi-million anti cancer medicine industry throughout the world… Ang guyabano ay nagkakahalaga lamang ng Php25-30/kg guaranteed with no side effects samantalang ang isang anti cancer tablet/capsule/vial ay umaabot ng Php500 pataas at hindi pa garantisado ang epekto nito at maraming side effects! Kaya just spread the curing words to our kababayan na meron or wlang cancer…

Sapinit Against Cancer and Alzheimer's Disease | Philippine Wild Raspberry

Another cancer fighting discovery, the sapinit or Philippine Wild Raspberry. Scientifically known as Rubus rosaefolius L. It is native to the Philippines. Can be found in forests and especially abundant in Laguna and Mount Banahaw area.

I thought it was a new discovery. I heard about it last Sunday evening in a segment of TV Patrol Weekend. I saw two persons processing sapinit in background while the lady reporter was discussing about its health benefits.

It was reported that sapinit has a unique delectable taste thus making it popular to children and elderly. The berries are processed to vinaigrette, juice, wine and jam. Processing is essenstial to lenghten the short fruit shelf life of only three to four days.

This sapinit is not available in my home town. I have never seen it since childhood. In case we are standing on the same ground, processed products maybe acquired thru the following. philippine wild raspberry sapinit

1) Municipal Agriculture Office, Dolores Quezon
2) Dolores Development Cooperative
3) Bangkong Kahoy RIC
4) Bangkong Kahoy 4H Club

The Dolores Development Cooperative has a facebook page. No further information about others.

According analysis done by UP Los Banos Biotech and DOST-ITDI, the berry has the following anti-cancer agents: benzopyrone nucleus
unsaturated steroids, hydrolysable tannins, free fatty acids, deoxysugars, sapins, anthraquinones and leucoanthocyanins. Anthraquinones prevents the onset of Alzheimer’s disease while hydrolysable tannins inhibits the duplication of HIV.

Sapinit herbal properties is not a new discovery. The said, it was discovered by a Filipino named Dionisio Pullan in 2009. The Department of Agriculture -Bureau of Agricultural Research (DA-BAR) reported wild sapinit conservation in the same year.

Guyabano Cure – Comment Highlights

The post “Guyabano Really Cures Cancer? Here are Some Evidence” is getting lots of comments. Many readers might not be patient enough to scan through. I scanned over and tried to re-write important information.

Cancer means any disease cause by cell abnormality. It does not cover diseases cause by microorganisms and viruses. Guyabano is popular as strong anti-cancer agent. Any inquiries about other diseases are beyond the brain of the blog author. Let us hope someone knowledgeable enough will share their expertise.

1) Pure green barley. c/o renante siborboro. It was claimed the it help Maritoni and April Boy cure they cancer. I guessed they are celebrity personality.

2) Go pure vegetarian diet.

3) c/o bernadette morabe. a) have faith in God b) consult a doctor c) eat healthy foods e) 30 minutes daily exercise f) have some fresh air g) get a morning sunlight and h) drink guyabano leaf concoction daily.

4) c/o faith. Drink guyabano leaves everyday. Refrain from drinking it daily if the disease is gone. Too much of anything does harm. Continue eating the fruit everyday. Seeds should not be eaten. Bark and roots can be included. Refrigeration will increase its shelf life and maintain potent properties.

5) c/o jane. Luyang dilaw, if available, can be mixed with the concoction.

6) c/o dyaems. drink guyabano tea in the morning instead of coffee.

7) c/o ron tancio. Never believed on any processed products with a natural claim. Have the tea at least one liter a day. Take at least 1 servings of guyabano fruit (200g/serving). For stage 3 cancers and up, make it 3-5 servings. Take 4-6 tsp of virgin coconut oil and Lacto Pafi (3-6 jiggers per day). Avoid sugar rich foods, meat and white rice. No to coffee and milk. Stress is a no no.

8) c/o william. For those who are suffering from gonorrhea and herpes, guyabano is the God’s answer for you. Here are the things you need to do: a) Eat the fruit pulp except the seeds. b) Pound the peels to attain very fine texture, blender will do it easier. Place it on XL size diaper. Wear the diaper and sit. Do a circling hip motion until the mashed peels reach your sex organ and anus. Do the trick for 15 to 30 minutes and repeat three to five times.

9) c/o angela cartagena. It might also help couple to have a baby.
