Simarouba | As Cancer Cure!


I have my mother fighting against breast cancer. We almost went till a moment where we thought we are in a losing game, but touch wood, we are fighting back again. Some one referred an complementing medicine to Alopathic Cancer Treatment, which is more on the Chemo or Radiation. This medication is based on the leaves and bark extract of a commonly growing tree and this treatment has no side effects and pretty simple to follow.

The tree is called as Simarouba Glauca and it is native to South America, Known to grow in the harder terrains and requires no care at all once it actually finds roots after planting. There are a lot of articles on this tree in the net, but they are more on the commercial yields like the oil and fruit pulp etc., but little less on the medicinal properties of the tree. Was googling a lot on this tree and its uses and in specific for some scientific papers on the same and found some. Just wanted to write this post so that it might help others who might find this useful and fighting cancer. Wanted to give a live case scenario based on our use and also the scientific paper which I dig one.

Our Experience.

My Mother is undergoing the Secondary Chemotherapy Treatment and this time she is on Paclitaxel. On Weekly Dosage. For the first weeks, the WBC, Haemoglobin and RBC count where contantly dropping and the common side effect of Nausea and disturbance in Bowel movements and loss of Appetite.

We went and met these people who suggested this treatment and started the Simarouba Leaves treatment along with the weekly chemotherapy. In our Preliminary Chemotherapy which was done in end of 2009, From the third cycle she started getting deteriorating on the above said side effects and got worsened till she completed the sixth Cycle. Not to mention the Loss of Hair and Darkening of Nails.

This time, there was a change. Once we started this therapy, the blood count became normal. There is Loss of hair and darkening of nails, but comparatively, the loss of appetite and disturbance in bowel movements is more or less nil. She cooks her own food and she is on her own. Her Haemoglobin has been always around 8.5 yo 9.5 and WBC above normal levels.

The Tolerance level is much higher and in the CT done in the end of Sixth Cycle in the secondary Chemo, there was a considerable reduction in the Tumor size. In short, We definitely feel its working.

From http://www.svlele.com/simarouba.htm

//Another area of research on simarouba and its plant chemicals has focused on cancer and leukemia. The quassinoids responsible for the anti-amebic and antimalarial properties have also shown in clinical research to possess active cancer-killing properties. Early cancer screening performed by the National Cancer Institute in 1976 indicated that an alcohol extract of simarouba root (and a water extract of its seeds) had toxic actions against cancer cells at very low dosages (less than 20 mcg/ml). Following up on that initial screening, scientists discovered that several of the quassinoids in simarouba (glaucarubinone, alianthinone, and dehydroglaucarubinone) had antileukemic actions against lymphocytic leukemia in vitro and published several studies in 1977 and 1978. Researchers found that yet another simarouba quassinoid, holacanthone, also possessed antileukemic and antitumorous actions in 1983. Researchers in the UK cited the antitumorous activity of two of the quassinoids, ailanthinone and glaucarubinone, against human epidermoid carcinoma of the pharynx. A later study in 1998 by U.S. researchers demonstrated the antitumorous activity of glaucarubinone against solid tumors (human and mouse cell lines), multi-drug-resistant mammary tumors in mice, and antileukemic activity against leukemia in mice.//

I googled for some detail on the Quassinoid which is told to be glaucarubinone, the major component in the Simarouba Glauca leaves.

This talks on the AntiCancer properties of Glaucarubinone

//

Abstract

A series of glaucarubinone analogues, obtained from natural sources as well as synthesized by us, were studied both in vitro and in vivo. The focus of the in vitro assessment was to define solid tumor-selective compounds by quantitating differential cytotoxic activity between murine and human solid tumor cells and either murine leukemia or normal cells. Subsequent in vivo studies were aimed at determining the therapeutic efficacy of these analogues against the murine models. Structure-activity analysis consequent to both the in vitro and in vivo studies demonstrated that few changes could be made in the parent glaucarubinone structure (outside of the C-15 position) without abrogating either cytotoxicity or potency. However, significant changes could be made at the C-15 position which modified, either enhanced or diminished, in vitro differential cytotoxicity, potency, human solid tumor selectively, and differential cytotoxicity to a MDR-expressing murine mammary tumor.

To Conclude, When you actually see your near and dears struggling with a chronic disease, you tend to do anything and everything possible to keep the pain down. This is was one such try which has made me feel that it has done some help to her. Sharing my experience so that it might be useful to someone some where.

    Hi,
    My Mother is also suffering from Cervical cancer of 4th stage,doctors said that no more treatments will be given at this stage as she has lots of swelling & Pain in both her legs and she cant walk, she is taking simarouba for past 3 weeks I am very restless I want to know if this can be cured at 4th stage? please reply if some one has gone thru such situation ?

    1. abhinav srivastava

      hi vniths,
      My mother is also facing the same situation like yours n she is also taking samirouba. Just have patience is what i can say as am doing the same thing. v both are sailing in the same boat. since its a herb, then it may take time to show results. But just ensure she is having the recommended doses as per the instructions. Just keep her motivated & make her feel special. It helps a lot. Though my mother is also at 4th stage but her condition is stable. All bcoz of the will power & keeping her happy. We have also tried music n that helps a lot. For me to comment more on samirouba will be difficult as i have just started sometime back. But u can try other things to boost her self confidence n remember to make her feel wanted & special. It will help her a lot.

        Dear Abhinav,

        could you please provide details regarding the usage of the plant for cancer patients. this is for my friend who is suffering from glioblastoma multiforme and now undergoing radiation after the surgery. I have read the decoction of leaves is being used as the medicine. but i wish to know how many times in a day it has to be consumed, how many leaves have to be taken for preparing the decoction.. etc. if you or anybody can help, please do the same at the earliest.

        thanks

        unnikrishnan

          Dear Unnikrishnan,
          Well, as far as the Medicine is concerned, it is suppose to be given once a day. In this blog, you can also get the contact details of the Dr. Who provides this medicine. When you place the order, you get a cd, booklet, leaves and seeds. It will give all the information on how you can make the decoction. I had ordered last year but my mother was at last stage, hence she could not take it after few dosage. Unfortunately, she is no more. Perhaps, if you want, I can send it to you as the leaves are still with me. Would be more than happy to assist you in that way. But before I send, you please contact the Dr. And check if that will be fine to use the leaves which is so old. If the Dr. suggest, then please send me your address.

          1. unnikrishnan s

            Dear Abhinav,

            thanks a lot for your quick reply and kind advice. we have lot of leaves as one of my friend is growing this tree (she is a devotee of Sri Sri Ravisankar). As told by you I will contact the Dr. and get back to you if needed.

          2. unnikrishnan s

            thanks! i failed to get the Dr.’s contact address and email/phone number. could you provide the same?

          Hi Unnikrishnan,
          We are considering this treatment for my mother who has been diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme as well. Did your friend try out this treatment? Is he/she benefiting from it (or it might be too early to tell)? So far, my mother hasn’t responded to the conventional therapy of surgery/radiation/chemo, and there was a recurrence of the tumour, and she’s had a second surgery last week.
          Just curious to know whether Simarouba has proven effective for anyone with GBM. Thanks for your response. Regards, MC.

          1. unnikrishnan s

            I think it is too early to tell about the effect of simarouba on my friend. he underwent surgery and 30 radiation and now undergoing chemotherapy. (tablets). he is a bulky man and the the side effect of radiation left him more bulky. according to the doctors it will take atleast 6 months to return to the normal body position. his present main problems are head ache and fade vision.

    I really appreciate Professor Syamasundar Joshi and his wife Professor Shantha Joshi both professors now retired at University of Argiculture near R T Nagar fly over, Bangalore who have extensively done research on Simarouba Glauca also called Lakshmi Taru in Bangalore. But who ever goes to his home to collect leaves of this tree he charges very high amount. To impress people, he will give 60 ml of liquid juice extracted from this Simarouba tree leaves to drink and says this much drink cost 25 dollars (Rs 1250 in INDIA) in USA which i am giving you free of cost. After hearing your cancer patient story he will give packet of leaves might be around half kg and collects Rs 1000/- from you. He says daily make decoction of 22 leaves and drink 3 times. I have given you leaves for a period of one month and once this is over, come next month to collect the same amount of leaves. Next month again he will take Rs 1000/- from you and gives the same amount of leaves. He says this you need to do till the patient is alive. Along with this leaves he will give few seeds of 10 to 15 in number of this plant and says grow for yourself this plant so that once it becomes tree don’t come to me for leaves. Again for this seeds he will take Rs 200 or Rs 300. He wont give any bills for this and he does the same for all the guys who come for leaves. Off course this leaves extracted juice will help cancer patients but he bluffs a lot and charges huge money which goes unaccounted. Just by staying 2 hours in his home in R T Nagar, i saw he collected more than 20,000 from different people by giving this leaves. This Simarouba Glauca tree you can find in Lalbagh, Agriculture campus near R T nagar, Art of living Ashram in Bangalore. PLEASE DONT GET CHEATED BY THIS PROFESSOR SYAMASUNDAR JOSHI WHO IS MINTING MONEY BY SELLING THIS PLANT LEAVES WHICH IS AVAILABLE FREE EVERYWHERE.

  11. Hoysala

    I really Do not agree with Roopali’s comments. I have been interacting with Mr. Joshi for the past 4 Yrs & I have noticed the results in my family member. He is very knowledgeable. One should appreciate the time, effort, knowledge he spends on this topic
    .

  12. Hema

    Yes i do agree with Hoysala,, Rupali.. just dont spread bad rumours.. and spoil motivation of patients. Better keep it yourself.. if you feel wrong..

  13. Sarah

    I agree with Roopali. We live in the US, just now my father-in-law informed us that he visited Dr. Joshi a few days ago and narrated the same experience that Roopali has stated here. Looks like the guy is making a fortune selling the leaves. What a way to make money!!! charging $1,000 for a bag of leaves. But, I have also heard that the leaves are effective against cancer.

    1. Naveen

      We spend lakhs of rupees for alopathy treatment and scaning. Hospitals and pharma companies mint money from cancer patients. We have no problem. But spending 1,000 rupees every month for leaves and bark of this plant hurts us. So sad. I met dr joshi 3 days back. I got more information about this disease from him than my doctor who charges rs 700 as consultation fee for every visit. My mom is undergoing cancer treatment (chemo and radiation). Started with liver secondaries. During chemo, it has spread to brain. We spent rs 4.5 lakh in the last 7 months, but no result. For me it doesn’t hurt spending 1k every month on this. I don’t feel cheated.

      1. Shankara Rao T S

        You are right. People who comment on giving small sums of money – say Rs 1000/- or so that too for 30 to 45 days medicine can never be compared to fortune which people spend on alopathy medicine. People are really talking rubbish – through their hat and irresponsibly when they pass loose comments on Dr Joshi. If they feel giving Rs 1000/- is too large who the hell asked them to go to Dr Joshi ?? Most of the money collected by him goes for maintenance of Simarouba Plants in GKVK since GKVK administration does not spend even a rupee !! Gentleman talking rubbish from US must check and ascertain in US that one ounce of Simarouba extract costs US $ 22/- approx whereas one month medicine from Dr Joshi costs less than U$ $17/- . Gentleman who is complaining on cost if he has courage & conviction- leave his job in US and supply freely Simarouba leaves / bark else shut his mouth !!

  14. Shankara Rao T S

    I know Dr Shyamasundar Joshi since last 6 years, he and his wife have done commendable research on Simarouba for almost two decades. Simarouba is NOT an indigenous plant and with only 4 to 5 seeds which he got from Vice-Chancellor of UAS Bangalore, 20 to 25 years back, India can boast of many million Simarouba plants / trees. If he was greedy and money minded, minting money as I could see from several comments, they are talking rubbish and nonsense. He has put his research work in public domain and if he was greedy then he would have kept the same himself and sold the same to a fortune!. UAS has been his research ground and has helped millions of farmers. If a person from US says that Dr Joshi is charging $ 1000/- per bag of leaves, he is talking through his hat and he does not know the fact. He must have confused with what Art of Living run by Sri Sri in Bangalore who is selling commercially simarouba decoction at US $ 22 per Oz – same as that charged in US. University run by him gets the Simarouba saplings at through away price Rs 10 to 20/- each from GKVK – UAS Bangalore and sells the same at astronomical value. Sri Sri Institute of Agricultural Sciences & Technology has virtually taken totally the research data of Dr Joshi and has come out publications in several languages including HIndi. Cancer treatment by far is not cheap by any standards in alopathy and simplistic treatment at a very low price is possible with Simarouba. So a person spending Rs 500/- or so to collect leaves / bark must necessarily understand how the stocks with him get replenished – by growing Simarouba in various outside GKVK-UAS. Dr Joshi will incur costs to grow for replenishment and transport the same to his place for distribution after processing. I strongly insist and condemn those who indulge in passing loose comments on Dr Joshi for whatever small money he collects for upkeep of plants, If one is not prepared to pay that even, better shut-up and chose alternates rather than passing loose / wild comments. One must understand NOTHING comes free on earth and specially if someone really wants to get benefit of health from Simarouba he / she must pay the small sums which is infinitesimal when compared to cost of alopathic medicine.
