CONQUER cancer… with this wild ‘dune flower’ secret?

There seems to be NO LIMIT as to what mad scientists will try to come up with to kill your cancer.

At least, with Big Pharma pulling the strings

Chemotherapy and other cancer drugs can STRIP you of your appetiteyour energy… and even your dignity.

It would probably be worth it if it WORKED…

But too many patients see their cancer come back with a VENGEANCE… or NOT be subdued AT ALL.

And all those side effects feel like they were for NOTHING.

There’s got to be a better way.

Unfortunately, not nearly enough dough is being invested in the NATURAL compounds that have shown potential to ABOLISH cancer

WITHOUT all those harmful side effects.

Here’s one that’s still “under the radar”… despite an ABUNDANT supply and HUNDREDS of years of safe use.

Is this nature’s own ‘cancer zapper’?

The broad swaths of sand in the Mojave and Sonoran deserts of the American Southwest may look like an arid wasteland…

But there’s a type of wildflower with purplish-pink flowers that THRIVES among the low dunes.

And it comes back every winter… year after year… sometimes surviving until the peak heat of the summer.

It’s the desert sand-verbena (Abronia villosa), a medicinal plant used by the Paiute tribe of Native Americans as a diuretic.

And it does, indeed, work as a folk remedy to induce the flow of urine

But there’s something MUCH more useful and powerful at hand with this wild annual.

First isolated in 1873, there’s a compound in the desert sand-verbena called abronione.

It’s a type of rotenoid, which is related to the phytochemicals known as isoflavones.

Rotenoids are best-known as plants’ innate insecticide – they protect the flowers from being eaten by bugs!

But as it turns out, these potent compounds may also protect YOU from being TAKEN OVER by cancer!

In a 2011 in vitro study, researchers discovered that abronione could kill both human lung cancer and leukemia cells.

And desert sand-verbena also contains ANOTHER cancer-fighting rotenoid, called boeravinone.

In a 2007 study out of Italy, boeravinone helped REVERSE the drug resistance of breast cancer cells.

Boeravinone also DESTROYED colon cancer cell viability… and INDUCED cancer “cell suicide” (a.k.a. apoptosis)… in a 2018 study out of China.

Now, you could wild forage desert sand-verbena… if you got the timing just right… and didn’t PERISH out in the dry desert.

Or you could travel to Southern California, Nevada, or even northern Mexico to find a native “medicine man” for an herbal concoction.

Unfortunately, Abronia villosa is not yet available as a supplement.

But something else is… something that ALSO contains the rotenoid boeravinone.

It’s called punarnava (Boerhaavia diffusa), also used as a diuretic and to support urinary health.

You can punarnava root powder supplements in capsule form at your local health food store or online.
